Curtin Law, LLC was established in 2010 by Kathleen Curtin.  Kathleen brings 27 years of corporate experience and knowledge.  She understands that legal issues can be confusing and costly.  Kathleen concentrates on the desired outcome and builds a plan to provide efficient and cost effective legal services which include negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation.  In addition to her firm, Kathleen volunteers her services at Prairie State Legal Services, as well as, at Metropolitan Family Services Legal Aid Society because she believes everyone is entitled to justice under the legal system.
