Michael D. Poulos Lawyer Profile

Biography

Michael Poulos grew up in Evanston and the United States Virgin Islands. He started his law practice upon admission to the bar in 1980. He believes in long term client relationships. His practice focuses on the bread and butter work needed by individuals and small businesses. One client called him an old-fashioned country lawyer.

His work has taken him to the Illinois Supreme Court and Capitol Hill, his cases have been featured in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, Chicago Lawyer Magazine, and in the popular press. He has been cited as a Distinguished Alumnus of Ripon College, and Loyola Law School commissioned his portrait for the cover of the law school magazine.

He is co-author of a book on divorce law, and helped write one of the standard real estate contracts used in the Chicago area. He has shared his business organization forms with other lawyers through the ISBA Forms Exchange, which he helped establish.

He is a founding member, principal trumpet, assistant conductor, and composer in residence of the Chicago Bar Association Symphony Orchestra, now in its fourth decade. He also performs with the Barristers Big Band and Scales of Justice.

He also discovered the long lost Mary Todd Lincoln Polka, which is now featured in the online Lincoln Collection.
