About Attorney Mark E. Edison

Mark Edison began his legal career working under a 7-11 license as a prosecutor for the City of Chicago. Later, Mark gravitated to the area of tax consulting and tax planning. Quickly recognizing the significance of real estate investment and the many benefits real estate investment provided his clients. Mark’s practice expanded and focus shifted to real estate transactional work and litigation, including but not limited to construction litigation and defense, mortgage foreclosure litigation and defense, landlord tenant litigation and defense, code and building violation defense in Chicago as well as other municipalities, bank owned (REO) representation on both the Sale and Purchase sides, Short Sale representation, residential and commercial real estate transactions, as well as a multitude of other areas many of which are in some way “intertwined” with real estate related law.

The Law Office of Mark E. Edison P.C. handles a litany of other areas of law, including criminal defense, contract law, and personal injury litigation. In all instances, if the matter is not one that we ca n handle, we can serve as a resource and provide contact information for other attorneys who can assist in the matter.

Mark has been seen on Channel 2 News interviewed as an expert in 2009 with regard to real estate taxes and also lectures as an Adjunct Professor of Business at North Central College teaching Business Law, International Business, and Entrepreneurship courses. Mark Edison prides himself on giving back to the community through sharing, educating, and molding the college students of today.

Mark’s clients range from fortune 500 companies to first time home buyers and sellers, and Mark believes that regardless of socioeconomic status, financial hardship, occupation, every client deserves to be treated with the utmost respect and the interest of the client should be represented with zeal and vigor.
