Aaron is one of the best Real Estate attorneys I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He is responsive and available and always does a great job for my clients. He’s one of the few attorneys that my clients have thanked me for referring and that goes a long way with me.

Aaron and his trusty staff, Jared and Rocky, were the best.  My wife and I just moved to the Chicago area from Pittsburgh, and the closing process in Illinois has many differences from the process in PA.  But our real estate agent referred us to Aaron.  Good move!  Aaron and his staff were there at every bend in the road!  When we had questions, they always had the answer, and it didn’t matter how often we called!  We are so glad we were represented by Aaron’s team. Friendly, accountable, and professional………Minkus Law.

Over the years I’ve referred many of my clients to Aaron Minkus to handle the closings of their real estate transactions. Aaron has always been very professional, ethical and empathetic. His knowledge and expertise have truly helped  to keep many difficult transactions together. I highly recommend using Aaron for your real estate needs.

Aaron was excellent all through the negotiations process and was able to help get us $2500 of the contracted price after the inspection took place. His response time through out negotiations had to be somewhere under 5 minutes and always broke down the communications between himself and the seller’s attorney so that I could fully comprehend them.

After negotiations I had issues with my bank as well as the sellers and he stayed on top of both of them for me, making sure I was aware of where we were in the process. It was the day before closing and thankfully Aaron caught some issues on the HUD that would have meant me bringing an additional $7000 to closing. He also aided in pushing closing date back once due to my bank and then once due to the sellers not having all the documentation for the home.

This was my first closing and I had no idea what was going on for the most part. Aaron sat down with me and my business partner and went through every single document we were signing and described them all in both legal and layman’s terms so we could comprehend. Aaron made closing the easiest thing about buying this house. My mortgage broker who has been in the business 25+ years even said “Aaron could not have described those documents any better than he did”.

We eventually plan on doing this several more times in the next few years and believe me after the experience with Aaron we plan on using him every time.

My wife and I worked recently with Aaron Minkus as our real estate attorney.  Aaron was extremely helpful in providing guidance throughout the process.  I have already referred him to friends of mine who are searching for a home.  Aaron provides prompt, helpful responses and does an excellent job explaining all that goes in to the legal side of purchasing a home.  I will continue to refer him to those who are entering the home buying process.  He was excellent.


Aaron was very knowledgeable about new construction. He described everything to us very clearly and was very helpful in finalizing our contract. He is very detail oriented and energetic.

Our attorney, Aaron Minkus, really went out of his way to help us. We had some trouble with the bank’s lack of timeliness, and he put himself out there to help us speed up the process. Thanks Aaron!

Aaron Minkus was a valuable resource throughout the entire process of purchasing my first condo. Being a first time home buyer I had many questions and I could depend on Aaron for a quick response to all of them. I was extremely satisfied with the service he provided.


I can’t even remember how many times Aaron let me bother him over the phone with what I’m sure were mundane, basic questions… but he knew that it was more important to make sure I could sleep easy than to rush me off the phone!
