Lincoln Square (Chicago), Illinois

Lincoln Square is a North Side community of the City of Chicago. It is located seven miles due north of Chicago’s Loop. Lincoln Square was originally an agricultural area that produced flowers, pickles and celery. When Chicago grew and the electric street railways began running in the 1890s, new residents came and settle in the Lincoln Square area. The Ravenswood elevated train opened in 1907. The farmland gave way to bungalows, 2-flats and small apartment buildings for Chicago’s expanding population at the turn of the 20th century.

By 1949, Lincoln Square had become a popular regional shopping district. Many commercial businesses and storefronts found their way to the intersection of Lincoln, Lawrence and Western Avenues. In 1978, the development of the Lincoln Square Mall and pedestrian plaza took hold.

This North Side Chicago community encompasses smaller neighborhoods of Ravenswood Manor, Ravenswood Gardens, Bowmanville and Budlong Woods. Now more than 44,000 people live in the neighborhood along with more than 1,000 small or medium sized businesses.

Transportation to and from the Chicago Loop is readily available on Chicago’s Brown Line “L”. Lincoln Square has a history of German influence. Today there are many shops catering to Thai or Middle Eastern cultures. Today the neighborhood is still home to German businesses, such as the Chicago Brauhouse, Merz Apothecary and Lutz Café & Bakery.

Client Reviews
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
