Benjamin W. Wong

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me.  Rest assured, when you retain my services, you will get someone who communicates with you every step of the way.  We live in a fast-paced environment, and I understand how important it is to follow-through on producing high-quality legal services. 

When I am not serving my clients needs, I find that I am serving the needs of my family.  I used to be an avid golfer, but I find my free time is now spent with my children.  From coaching my sons' little league baseball teams to serving on the local school board to spending long days at their chess tournaments, I just don't have the time to be out on the golf course.  My golfing buddies will have to wait a little bit longer for me to get back out there.   

​Being born and bred in Chicago, I have a love-affair with the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, and Chicago Bulls.  You might be surprised to learn that I used to be a beer vendor at Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park.  Those were great times when I was able to work outdoors and enjoy the roar of the crowd.  Honestly, though, my back doesn't miss it as much. 

Now that you've learned a little bit about me, I look forward to learning more about you and your legal needs.  Don't hesitate to call me for a free consultation .
