Crane and Norcross excels at helping clients achieve fair and equitable property assessments. Our practice is limited to ad valorem real estate taxation – the review and contesting of the valuation of property as it pertains to real estate taxation. Since real estate tax matters are local by nature, we regularly represent clients in the state courts, as well as before administrative state and local taxing bodies that deal with real estate assessments. We have successfully appealed property assessments in Illinois’ Cook, DuPage, Lake, Will and Kane Counties, as well as numerous other counties inside and outside of Illinois.
