Billy Garmisa Featured in Illinois Leading Lawyers Network Magazine – Top Business Lawyers in Illinois Edition


Leading Lawyers Network Magazine featured Business Law and Transactions Member William Garmisa in an article for their 2014 Top Business Lawyers in Illinois Edition.

The article, "Everyone Is Replaceable – Except Billy," discusses his career path and the variety of work he has completed for his clients, including that for Construction Aggregates Corporation (CAC). Garmisa began working for CAC in 1971, and the relationship continues to flourish.

“There is an old adage in business that everyone is replaceable, but Billy is the exception to that rule,” says Jack Goldfarb, a CAC vice president who has known Billy for 30 years and marvels at his personal touch. “His work is meticulous and he responds and gets on top of every legal issue.

"No matter how routine or complex, his response is quick and complete. Working with Billy is just like having in-house counsel. I realize he has other clients, but with Billy you just can’t tell.”

Another long time client also speaks highly of Billy in the article. Bill Maki, who owns the Illinois operations of Libra Industries says: “We were one of his first clients, and we will continue to be,” Maki says. “He is so well respected in the legal community. He is an incredible attorney. He has never given either me or my father a bad piece of advice.”

With Garmisa writing the contracts for the purchases, Maki has bought many buildings through the years.

“It is amazing the number of things he gets involved with where I am confident we will not be steered wrong,” Maki says. “He has surrounded himself with high quality people but the buck stops at his desk for any questions.”

The article concludes with Billy saying, “When you have a satisfied client and a client who really appreciates the work, time and devotion you have made to a particular project, that is very fulfilling.”
