Crane and Norcross, LLC is pleased to announce Cristin Duffy has joined the firm. Duffy previously served as deputy supervisor in the Real Estate Tax Division of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, where she oversaw 14 Assistant State’s Attorneys in the Civil Division.

Duffy’s hire is a continuation of the firm’s restructuring and expansion that was initiated last fall, with James P. Boyle being named managing partner and Thomas J. Boyle joining as partner.

“As the rules and procedures related to tax rates and assessments continue to fluctuate in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cristin’s extensive experience and insights gained at the County will no doubt benefit our clients during this challenging time,” said James Boyle. “We are extremely excited to add her to our ranks of talented practitioners as we enhance our service offerings for our clients.”

“I am excited to be joining one of the region’s most preeminent real estate tax firms and this incredible team of attorneys and staff, and I am eager to help our clients navigate the rapidly shifting and always complex tax systems during this tumultuous time,” said Duffy.
