Wang, Leonard & Condon is a premier Chicago-based law firm with a tradition of providing experienced, proactive representation for our clients. We understand that selecting a law firm is an important and personal decision. Experience, documented success, and professionalism are essential considerations. The principals at WLC bring nearly half a century of legal experience to each case. Our accomplishments have been founded on our commitment to investing the time and the substantial resources necessary for a successful resolution of our clients' legal needs.

With experience in every aspect of litigation, our practice is based on three essential principals: thorough research, meticulous preparation for trial from the onset of each case, and persistence to obtain the best possible outcome for our clients. Our firm does not measure success by the number of cases we accept. Rather, each case accepted at WLC receives exclusive personal attention of one or more of the partners from its inception to its conclusion.

WLC utilizes every technological advance to further our clients' cases. With WLC, you will receive the individual attention of a small firm combined with the resources of a large firm to achieve the successful results you deserve. Exceptional service requires outstanding law practitioners, which is why we invest considerable resources to recruit, develop and retain talented professionals. Our environment encourages creativity, innovation and an absolute commitment to our clients.
