Lisa H. Fishbein, Attorney at Law | Property Tax Representation
As a property tax attorney, Lisa Fishbein assists her residential clients in Lake and Cook counties to reduce their property taxes. She works with individual property owners as well as condominium associations. Lisa works on a contingency basis charging a percentage of the savings she has obtained for her clients.
Lisa researches and analyzes each property to determine whether a property tax appeal is warranted. In Lake County, when a client is over assessed, Lisa files an appeal with the Lake County Board of Review and appears in person at the hearing to contest the case, She does not charge a retainer fee and thus a client only pays a fee if Lisa saves them money. In the event an appeal is unsuccessful, she files an appeal with the Illinois P-Tab, the state level of appeal. In Cook County, she files an appeal with the Cook County Assessor’s Office, then to the Cook County Board of Review, and, if still not successful, she files with Illinois P-TAB.
Lisa’s small practice enables her to personally research and analyze all cases, as well as appear in person at the hearings. She returns phone calls promptly and gives her clients the care and attention they deserve.
In 2010, Lisa reduced $19,000,000 of assessed market values for her clients in Lake and Cook Counties winning over 99% of her cases. In 2011, she again enjoyed much success by obtaining over $22,000,000 of reductions in assessed market value for her clients in Lake County and winning 97% of her appeals in Antioch, Cuba, Ela, Freemont, Moraine, Newport, Shields, Warren, Wauconda West Deerfield and Vernon townships and in Cook County.
