The law firm of Fogarty & Fugate was founded by Kelli A. Fogarty and Dean N. Fugate, two attorneys who share similar backgrounds as former prosecutors with extensive real estate experience. Together they saw a need in the real estate industry for a law firm that is simultaneously aggressive, compassionate and accessible to clients and agents. Key to the success of the firm is the understanding that the emotions of a real estate transaction can make the process stressful for even the most experienced buyer or seller.
 
 
 
 
 

Kelli Fogarty has practiced real estate law since graduating from law school in 2000 and has closed thousands of properties as an attorney. She believes that the key to a good attorney client relationship, and a successful closing, is open communication. Open communication requires working as a team with not only the client but also the client’s lender and real estate agent. It is this team approach that has made Kelli a preferred attorney for several of Chicago’s biggest producing real estate agents.

Kelli frequently lectures on legal issues pertinent to today’s challenging real estate market. Kelli received her J.D. from Loyola University Chicago Law School where she was awarded the prestigious Corboy Fellowship and her B.A. in Political Science from Eastern Illinois University.

Dean Fugate focuses on residential real estate while specializing in distressed properties. He has successfully negotiated and closed well over 200 short sales. Dean employs aggressive and analytical negotiation skills when working on behalf of a client to ensure a successful outcome to the often daunting short sale process. His hands-on approach to negotiations means that he personally handles every aspect of the short sale no matter what lender he is working with at the time.

During law school, Dean clerked in the law department of a prominent Chicago real estate development firm. After obtaining his J.D, he served six years at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office as a trial lawyer. Dean attended Loyola University Chicago Law School and received a B.A. in English from UCLA.
