Professional Bio:

I have been practicing law for over 35 years. The past 25 of those years has been in the areas of bankruptcy and commercial litigation. I represent both individuals and businesses as debtors and creditors in chapter 11, 7 and 13. Golan Christie Taglia LLP has just over 30 attorneys. We mainly represent small to medium sized businesses and business owners. In 2012, my firm was able to confirm plans of reorganization in 9 separate chapter 11 cases. In addition to bankruptcy and commercial litigation, we handle corporate transactional work, real estate, tax, estate planning, employment law and property tax appeals. I helped found the IWIRC Chicago Network, was the Network's first Treasurer, and for many years, co-chaired the golf outing. I am currently serving as our Network's Liaison Chair. I am also very active in TMA. I am also AV rated by Martindale Hubbell and have been a Leading Lawyer and a Super Lawyer for the past several years. Please feel free to check out our firm website at "" and to connect with me via LinkedIn.
