About Our Law Firm
A Word from Attorney Caroline J. Smith
"My father was a public interest attorney in the 1960's and 1970's. He worked at the Community Legal Council which merged with the Legal Aid Bureau to become the Legal Assistance Foundation of Chicago. My father practiced law out of the Woodlawn office. He focused on creating better living conditions in public housing by bringing the apartments into compliance with the municipal building code. My passion for housing law is based on the foundation for serving the public which my father built. As a law student at Georgetown University Law Center, I focused on public interest law. Today, I defend both residential and commercial tenants who are involved in the eviction process. I am very proud that I have handled over 7,000 eviction defense cases during my career."
