Our firm maintains a visible presence in the real estate community through speeches, lectures, seminars and publications addressing issues on the cutting edge of the assessment and property taxation field. We have spoken before various groups such as the International Association of Assessing Officers, the Illinois Bar Association (as part of the Law Ed Series for continuing legal education), the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education and the Institute for Professionals in Taxation (formerly known as the Institute of Property Taxation). These speeches have addressed such topics as the assessment process and preparation of assessment appeals. We have also co-authored a chapter in the textbook on real estate taxation published by the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education (IICLE), and Robert Sarnoff has authored the Illinois chapter of the American Bar Association Property Tax Deskbook. Robert Sarnoff is past Chairman of the Chicago Bar Association Committee on State and Municipal Taxation and past Chairman of the Illinois State Bar Association State Taxation Council.
