Welcome to M. Hedayat & Associates, P.C.
For over 20 years M. Hedayat & Associates has been working with businesses and business owners across Illinois, including Cook, Lake, DuPage, Will, Kane, Kendall, DeKalb, and McHenry. As a small law firm we take a personal interest in each and every Client. Our primary areas of practice include:
We have expertise at every stage in the life of a business, from incorporation and funding to operations, contracting, dealing with employees, collections, collection-defense, winding up, reorganization, and bankruptcy. Our commitment to business Clients comes an in-depth understanding of the personal issues that accompany entrepreneurship - including what drives entrepreneurs to start a business. The process can be exhilarating but also can be hard on a marriage, a family, and a bank account. Business isn't without risk, but entrepreneurs don't have to be exposed at every stage. We help by offering a range of services designed to safeguard the owner's rights and protect them against the ups and downs of the market.
Real estate is one of the cornerstones of the law and a lynchpin of our economy. So it's no wonder real estate transactions are a major part of what we do - from single-family homes to industrial space, commercial buildings, and land. What makes us unique is that we understand real estate from every angle. In addition to practicing law for more than 20 years Principal Attorney Mazyar Hedayat owned a title company for 6. In that time M. Hedayat & Associates presided over purchases, sales, refinancings, mortgages, reverse-mortgages, leases, short-sales, and agreements-for-deed too numerous to mention. We've had a role in transactions ranging from less than $100,000 in value to the millions. We have closed all over Illinois for Clients that are local and remote - many times without the need for the Client to even attend the Closing.
As a result of the mortgage crisis of the past decade, there has been the sharp rise in defaults, foreclosures, short-sales, and reverse-mortgages. M. Hedayat & Associates is proud to be on the cutting edge of helping property hold onto their property despite the rising tide of default and foreclosure. In fact, we've been helping clients protect their property since we opened our doors in 1995. Since 2008 our office has offered advice and counsel to a growing number of hard-working people in the Chicago area. Our job isn't done until the market stabilizes for our Clients, and we haven't seen that yet. Even when we do, it may be too late unless homeowners take proactive steps to stay in their homes or we show them how to move on without the fear of lingering liability.
Construction is a dynamic field that brings together General Contractors, Subcontractors, Trades, Suppliers, Inspectors and Architects. M. Hedayat & Associates has represented both Owners and Contractors in connection with projects ranging in size from a home remodel or room addition to breaking ground on a multi-story high-rise. We are proud to represent Clients not only in connection with transactional matters such as Waivers, Sworn Statements, and Mechanics Liens, but all the way through to foreclosure of their lien interests - and defense against lien foreclosures. Our Principal Attorney has not only litigated such cases but written and lectured about the construction process to both Lawyers and Non-Lawyers.
Bankruptcy law, including Consumer Bankruptcy, Commercial Bankruptcy, and Bankruptcy Litigation, has undergone a number of cycles over the years. Today Bankruptcy is an electronic practice that calls on both the Attorney's technical and legal skills. But the need for Bankruptcy and Restructuring expertise is timeless. As long as companies and individuals experience financial challenges Bankruptcy will remain a necessary last-resort. M. Hedayat & Associates goes beyond straightforward Chapter 7 cases to include consumer reorganization (Chapter 13), business reorganization (Chapter 11), Adversary Actions, Lien Strips, Fraudulent and Preferential Transfers, Automatic Stay disputes, even collections from Debtors in Bankruptcy. Our Clients have included Debtors, Creditors, and even Bankruptcy Trustees.
