Project Description

Samuel J. H. Weyers

Sam provides a wide range of legal services to businesses, business owners, and individuals. He provides practical guidance, from both legal and business-level perspectives, concerning the negotiation and formation of contracts; the interpretation of shareholder agreements, operating agreements, and other business documents; and the legal effect of provisions in wills and trusts. Sam also represents people who have been injured as the result of negligent conduct. When disputes cannot be resolved outside of the courtroom, Sam uses his understanding of the Illinois and Federal Codes of Civil Procedure to efficiently and effectively advocate for clients in both state and federal court.

In addition to litigating disputes between business owners, breach of contract claims, personal injury claims, will contests, trust contests, contested guardianship proceedings, and issues associated with real estate, Sam assists individuals with administering uncontested estates and trusts and helps individuals and business owners establish carefully crafted estate plans.

Sam is actively involved at his church and enjoys cooking.
