Daniel R Zeit - Attorney in Lake County IllinoisHello, My name is Dan Zeit. Born and raised in Gurnee, Illinois on a little horse farm. Sixth of seven kids. My fathers name was Carl Zeit, a Waukegan dentist for over 50 years. I graduated from Warren Township High School in 1978, from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana in 1982. I attended John Marshall Law School and graduated in 1988. While going to law school I clerked at firms in downtown Chicago, such as Gorman, Caffrey & Wittows. I spent my summers as a sheet metal banger.
I worked with Attorney Robert J. Fox for 17 years before he passed away. I have been partners with Mike Nerheim for 4-5 years before he became the States Attorney, we remain good friends.  I have partners named Joe Polenzani and Steve Lundari and we work closely with Laura Horner.
I concentrate in Criminal Law. I practice primarily in Lake County  where my office is just across the street from the courthouse.  I don’t gouge on fees and if you have a trial-able case, I’ll try it for you.  I’ve been doing this 24 years and I’m good at it.
I also handle Federal cases in Chicago and Milwaukee.
