The life-long resident of Lake County brings the communication skills of a teacher to the practice of law. “I was an elementary and middle-school teacher for many years before deciding I wanted to stretch my horizons,” she said. In her mid-thirties, she began paralegal studies and went to work for a Waukegan law firm as a bookkeeper and secretary.

“One of the female lawyers I worked with encouraged me to go to law school and to become a lawyer.” Sandie did just that, graduating from law school at age 42.

Now a practicing attorney living in Gurnee, Sandie does what many lawyers (and doctors) don’t do: she makes house calls. “I’ll work with clients in their homes,” she said. “Or if someone prefers, we can meet at the Drop-In Center.”

“I know that the language of law can be confusing and intimidating,” she said. “So before we meet, I ask people to fill out a ‘work sheet’ to get the basic information and to focus on the specifics of what they need to get done. If there’s any questions in filling out the work sheet, they can always call me.”

Sandie is offering reduced rates to Veterans and their families because she wants to help reduce the stress and strain that can follow the death of a Veteran or a loved one. If you are interested in learning more about Sandie’s services, call LCVFSF at 847-986-4622.
