On May 1, 1990, Terry Hodges, Mike Loizzi, Stan Eisenhammer, Bennett Rodick and Bob Kohn founded the law firm of Hodges, Loizzi, Eisenhammer, Rodick & Kohn LLP on the simple principle that Illinois schools, municipalities and park districts deserve the best legal services at a reasonable cost.
To carry out this guiding principle the five founding partners combined the best practices of small boutique law firms with resources generally available only to larger firms. With more than 15 years of experience to build on, they created a full-service law firm that is responsive to the needs of its clients. Our attorneys have the depth and breadth of knowledge to successfully and cost-effectively handle any issue our clients face.
Today, our firm is a leader in Illinois school, municipal and park district law. With twenty-five years of practice, we are confident in saying that our firm is successful. The two objective measures of success are growth and stability. Our firm has grown from five founding partners to twenty-one partners, from six attorneys to thirty-five attorneys, from one office to three, and our client base has increased more than 500 percent since 1990. With few exceptions, our attorneys began their law career with the firm and have remained. Unlike many other law firms, we have not experienced any fractures among our partnership. We have grown and we are stable.
The firm currently represents public school districts, private schools, colleges and universities, municipalities, park districts and other local governments, as well as private corporations and associations throughout Illinois.
