Lisa H. Fishbein, Attorney at Law

My Practice

As a property tax attorney, I assist my residential clients in obtaining a reduction in the assessed value of their property in order to reduce their property taxes. I work on a contingency basis and charge a percentage of the savings I obtain for you.  In Lake County I do not charge a retainer fee; you only pay me if I save you money.

I research and analyze a property to determine whether a property tax appeal is appropriate.  When a client is over assessed in Lake County, I file an appeal with the Lake County Board of Review on a client’s behalf and appear in person at the hearing to contest the case.  In the event an appeal is unsuccessful, I file with PTAB, the state appeals board.   In Cook County, I file an appeal with the Cook County Assessor’s Office, then to the Cook County Board of Review, and, in the event I am not successful, I file with PTAB.

My small practice enables me to research and analyze all of my cases, as well as appear in person at the hearings.  I return phone calls promptly and give my clients the care and attention they deserve.

Over the past 9 years, I have reduced a total of over $100,000,000 in assessed market values for my clients in Lake and Cook Counties, winning  95% of my cases. I provide legal services for my clients’ with the utmost care and attention in a very professional manner.  I welcome the opportunity to speak with you further about my practice.


I have many client references, perhaps in your neighborhood, who are extremely satisfied with my services and the tax saving results. If you request references please call me. Please know, I respect my clients’ privilege and privacy, as I will with you. A few recent testimonials.
