Michael Gunderson was born and raised in Kansas and was raised by a Criminal Defense Attorney father and a Divorce Attorney mother. Despite their suggestions to pursue alternative endeavors, Mr. Gunderson had a strong desire to pursue law from an early age. Shortly after graduating from Law School in downtown Chicago, he started his own practice, focusing on Real Estate, Bankruptcy, and various litigation matters. Using the law to help people through some of the most challenging times of their lives, Mr. Gunderson feels great empathy for his clients and works hard to provide them with the legal services they need and the dedicated representation they deserve in carrying out whatever legal issue he can take on for them.
Mr. Gunderson is a member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Illinois State Bar Association, Decalogue Society, and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. In addition to his pro bono work, he has been a guest educator for the Constitutional Rights Foundation. He has also been a community speaker on bankruptcy, unemployment, and distressed real estate. Mr. Gunderson has also served as an expert witness in various bankruptcy matters. He once petitioned the Cook County Circuit Court to exhume the body of a Chicago mafia member just this past year, and represented an individual at trial regarding an ownership dispute between two cats.
