About Chuhak & Tecson

Paige N. Fox joined Chuhak & Tecson, PC as of May 2, 2022, working in the Estates and Trusts and Elder Law Departments. Prior to joining Chuhak & Tecson, PC, Paige was with Elder Law & Estate Planning Attorneys of Illinois, P.C. from December 2015 to April 2022, assisting clients with a variety of elder law matters including Medicaid planning, estate and special needs planning, probate, trust administration and adult guardianship. She attended law school at Chicago-Kent College of Law, where she earned her Juris Doctor degree and a Certificate in Public Interest Law. Paige also received the Dean?s Certificate of Service in recognition of her commitment to public service and 144+ hours of volunteer work during law school. Paige completed her undergraduate at the University of Illinois where she majored in psychology with a minor in communications. Prior to becoming an Associate at the Law Office of James C. Siebert & Associates, PC, Ms. Fox was a 711 licensed law clerk and then volunteer attorney for the Illinois Protection and Advocacy Commission, Equip for Equality (EFE). At Equip for Equality, Paige provided legal services to people with all types of disabilities, both mental and physical, and ranging in age from newborn babies to senior citizens. Much of Paige?s time at Equip for Equality was spent investigating the Office of the Inspector General?s reports of abuse and neglect and traveling to different mental health facilities, nursing homes, and hospitals to meet with clients and interview facility staff. Paige also gained experience in a variety of other areas of law by working on adult guardianship cases, employment discrimination cases based on disability, and death investigations. She also assisted individuals in obtaining and maintaining their civil rights by aiding homeless veterans in need and advocating voting rights for individuals with disabilities. While in law school, Paige dedicated her time outside the classroom to working as a 711 licensed law clerk in the Office of the Cook County Public Guardian?s juvenile division. While there, Paige assisted government attorneys in representing abused and neglected children. From there, Paige went on to defend the rights of the elderly and disabled by working in the probate courtrooms of the Daley Center as a 711 licensed law clerk with Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS). She also volunteered with the Center for Disability and Elder Law (CDEL) and assisted pro se petitioners at the Daley Center in filling out the forms required to petition for guardianship of their loved ones. Paige completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana where she majored in psychology and received a minor in communications. While at the University of Illinois, Paige worked as an after-school teacher and summer camp counselor at Next Generation School, working over forty hours a week for most of her college career while maintaining a strong GPA. Paige grew up in the village of Grantfork, located in Southern Illinois and with a population of approximately 350 people. Growing up in a small town, Paige watched her parents work hard to provide for her family and thereby developed her own strong work ethic. Due to this hard work and the support of her family, Paige became the first person in her immediate family to attend and graduate from college. Having lived with her grandparents for a portion of her life, Paige is very close to the older generation of her family. She has experienced firsthand the pains of watching a loved one suffer with dementia and knows how challenging it can be to assist a loved one in the aging process. Now living in Chicago, Paige focuses her career on assisting families in navigating the fields of elder law. In her free time, Paige enjoys playing volleyball, softball, and fantasy football, attending and watching any and all sporting events (especially the Chicago Bears, Chicago Blackhawks, and St. Louis Cardinals), painting, and spending time with family and friends. Paige is Vice President of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) Illinois Chapter, Chair for the Education Committee of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) Illinois Chapter, and a member of the Chicago Bar Association, Illinois Bar Association (Human Rights and Young Lawyers Sections), and American Bar Association.
