We are pleased to announce a few new additions to the firm.  Joel Green is joining us from Sandberg, Phoenix and Von Gontard.  Joel focuses his practice on the representation of individual and business clients in the areas of estate planning, trust and probate administration, real estate transactions, mergers and acquisitions, franchise and distribution, business entity selection and formation, and commercial transactions.  Joel was admitted to practice in 2001.Lori DaCosse focuses her practice in the areas of real estate, construction, title insurance and business law.  She practiced with Sandberg, Phoenix and Von Gontard’s office until recently when she relocated to Miami, Florida.  Lori was admitted to practice in 2000.

Elizabeth Kayser and Ryan Hyde are joining us from The Kayser Law Firm.  Elizabeth and Ryan have developed a substantial law practice specializing in short-sale real estate transactions.  They will continue to operate that business independently for the time being.  Their practice generated outside litigation and real estate work which AEGIS attorneys will produce.  Elizabeth was admitted to practice in 1996.  Ryan was admitted to practice in 2011.

Joel, Elizabeth and Ryan will be working primarily out of our office in Clayton.  Lori will be working out of Miami (road trip, anyone?).  In addition, we have established an additional office in O’Fallon, IL to accommodate Joel’s practice and that of a retiring attorney who is transitioning his practice to Joel.
