Cross Town Legal was chartered with a simple objective: provide renowned, client-oriented legal services to the community without sacrificing attorney experience. After over thirty years of combined practice, Chicago real estate attorney Kathleen Creswell Cunningham found that many law firms did not meet this goal. It seemed the more experienced an attorney, the less time was allocated to client communication and individualized representation. Clients struggling with a tense quick sale, time-sensitive closing, a quick turn-around time for their estate planning needs, or on the verge of bankruptcy were often shuffled between support staff and answering services due to the constant “unavailability” of their lawyers. 

Lack of effective client communication and follow up is the number one ethics complaint received by state and local bar associations each year. Attorney Cunningham is dedicated to changing this statistic among Chicago real-estate lawyers. No client should have to sacrifice experience for personalized service, and at Cross Town Legal, you don’t have to. 

Founded by a compassionate attorney, Kathleen Creswell Cunningham, the community-focused approach to the practice of law at Cross Town Legal has left us with a reputation for real estate excellence. We take great pride in the relationships we build and always work relentlessly on our client’s behalf to help them achieve their goals.

At Cross Town Legal, we know that the key to successful legal representation is client communication. This is why we’ve created a unique set of policies and procedures governing communication and follow up at our office. These structured communication policies ensure that clients receive information in an efficient and personalized manner directly from an experienced attorney.

While our support staff is passionate about your transaction, we embrace technology to ensure your attorney is always accessible. Whether it’s an after-hours conference call with your real estate broker, a question during your weekend open house, or a face-to-face meeting to discuss difficult foreclosure or short-sale options, we strive to provide our clients with open access to the experienced and compassionate real estate attorneys. 

As members of the Chicago community, it’s a privilege to support our military personnel. We offer military, police, firefighter, educator and medical professional discounts and passionately support our local heroes (we can’t state this since we don’t pay a dues or are directly affiliated with them.) Our attorneys work to ensure our local military service members, first responders, medical professionals, and teachers are receiving every federal and state real estate benefit available.
