Law Offices of Bruce R. Entman

About Bruce

For over 30 years Bruce Entman has been serving business owners, their businesses and their families.  Since becoming a member of the Illinois Bar, in 1978, Bruce has focused his legal services upon the assistance of business owners.  In May of 1991, after 13 years of firm experience, Bruce redefined his career with the creation of his own practice – a law firm dedicated to serving and protecting business owners.  Watching his father forge out into the world to create a successful business enterprise through hard work and dedication, has largely influenced Bruce’s decision to dedicate his professional life to the business owner, understanding in a way most others do not, that a person’s business is their means of supporting their family and improving the quality of their lives.

Bruce brings a diverse and unique set of skills into the practice of law, and uses them to better serve his clients and their interests.  In creating his practice, Bruce made sure to have a strong litigation focus, that would enable him to address the issues confronting his clients, from general counseling, to representation in the courtroom.  In addition, as the Chairman of the Buffalo Grove Zoning Board of Appeals, he brings a uniquely experienced perspective to all of his zoning and land use work.  Bruce is also a licensed real estate broker and his extensive experience handling commercial real estate transactions and closings gives him a skill set not often found in a litigation attorney.
