About 23 Legal | Meet Ben Weaver

Dealing with legal matters can be confusing. We make it easy!

23 Legal LLC has a simple mission: to help our clients.

We know how intimidating “the law” can be. In fact, when most people think of law offices, they think of stuffy leather chairs, huge wooden desks and pompous lawyers who charge outrageous fees. That’s not us! We believe that a good lawyer should help you, not stress you. We believe in 1-to-1; the same lawyer should work with you all the way through. Whether you have an estate planning issue, family trust concern, or you have a legal problem in regard to a new home, business, real estate or remodel, you need a lawyer who cares. That’s where Ben comes in!

Meet Ben Weaver, Founder of 23 Legal

Ben is the kind of person who believes in helping others because it is the right thing to do. Before he became a lawyer, he served in Zambia for the Peace Corps. When he opened 23 Legal LLC, he made sure to join the Rotary Club of Arlington Heights because of his close ties to the community, as well as his connection with the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce. Ben is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association and the Illinois Real Estate Lawyers Association. Most of all, Ben likes talking to people to get an understanding of their needs. This philosophy carries over to everything we do; we really listen and we really care.

During the coronavirus pandemic time, we recently sold our house with Ben. Ben helped me to deal with the house sale issues especially some uncertainty happened before house closing. He was quick and professional to communicate with us as well as buyer’s lawyer. We highly recommend his team's services.

With all of the changes in this era of Covid, Ben was really easy to work with in all aspects of our home sale. He was very informative, professional, and prompt to respond to our questions. Compared to our previous buying/selling experience there were no surprises and he seemed to make this quite easy for us, even when we were out of state on closing day. Thanks Ben!

We recently purchased our first home with Ben, and he helped make the process go very smoothly. He was quick to respond to any questions we had, as well as to reach out to the sellers for all information we requested from them. He looked out for our best interests, and was transparent about the process and expectations we should set. Our closing was efficient and quick due to Ben's preparations. We highly recommend using him and his team's services for any real estate transactions.

Ben was terrific to work with. He is knowledgeable and responsive, and never left us wondering where we were in the process of selling our condo. We have had experience with other seller attorneys that were less than ideal. I have no reservations working with him in the future and highly recommend him.

I learned about 23 legal LLC through a Facebook request I initiated for a real estate lawyer referral. My goal was for a specific price point. Out of all the referrals that I had received, this particular office responded with such professionalism I felt like I was entering into business with an overpriced lawyer. But they never came across as cold nor sterile. Instead every interaction was personal, warm and friendly. Every correspondence was quick and I've never felt out of the loop. If you're reading this, I hope to convey to you that this is a great real estate legal option for you.

As first time homebuyers we needed all the guidance we can get and Ben was very helpful, kind, and understanding. He was referred to us by my closing team at Redfin who was in their books as their clients preferred closing attorney. Closing was fast and easy, filled with smiles and laughs. It was a great experience working with him and we will definitely be keeping his info for any future needs.

Because I was selling my condo without a Real Estate Agent I really needed a good attorney . Ben Weaver was everything anyone could ever ask for. He was very responsive to all of my questions, usually within an hour or two. He even offered to drop by my home to have me sign something because he was in the neighborhood. If you're in need of a real estate attorney I would recommend Ben very highly. You won't be disappointed!

This is my second time working with Ben and he has been absolutely amazing! He's always online to answer my questions (which I had a million of), he's intelligent and knows the law in regards to real estate like the back of his hand. I will be referring him to all my family and friends and will definitely be working with him on my next venture.

Commercial leases can be tricky. Ben, looked over my new lease and broke it down paragraph by paragraph with explanations. It made it very easy to understand and he was able to concisely write up an addendum for all my requests made verbally and agreed upon with my new landlord. This was very helpful as when an item was not completed as agreed, then all I had to do is send a message to my landlord referencing back to the addendum, copy 23 Legal LLC and it was taken care of with no hassell. All related questions to my office move such as permits and business licenses were also answered. I highly recommend.
