Three Chuhak & Tecson attorneys honored as Crain's Chicago Business' "Notable Gen X Leaders in Law"


Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. is proud to announce that Crain’s Chicago Business is honoring principals Kevin Coyne, Kristen Hudson and Lindsey Paige Markus as three of Chicagoland’s “Notable Gen X Leaders in Law.”

Crain’s is recognizing accomplished attorneys between the ages of 40 and 55 who hold senior firm leadership positions and serve as role models or mentors to other attorneys. These “Notable Gen X Leaders in Law” also assume leadership positions outside of their law firms, including service in professional organizations and community service initiatives.

“Lindsey, Kristen and Kevin are very deserving of this honor not only because they are proven leaders within our firm—they all serve as role models and mentors to our young attorneys,” said Mitchell Weinstein, president of Chuhak & Tecson. “We are very proud of them.”

Kevin Coyne leads the 18-attorney Real Estate practice group at Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. He represents national franchises, restaurants, bars and professional practices and has substantial experience negotiating office, retail and industrial leases on the national and local levels for landlords and tenants. He relishes his roles as both legal counsel and business advisor for commercial property transactions. As a Naperville city councilman, Kevin has unique perspective and constructive insight that benefits clients facing municipal issues in Chicagoland.

Kristen Hudson represents businesses and business people in complex commercial and high-stakes litigation. She is also Chuhak & Tecson’s co-general counsel, managing risk and advising on professional liability and ethical issues. The commitment she brings to the firm and clients is matched by her dedication to serving the community, mentoring the next generation of lawyers and championing diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Kristen is an adjunct professor at The John Marshall Law School and co-coaches its international commercial arbitration team.

Lindsey Paige Markus, the firm’s first woman shareholder, draws on her early career in business, finance and neuroscience to develop creative solutions to fit estate planning, wealth protection and corporate needs of individuals and businesses. Licensed in Illinois, Florida and New York, Lindsey has a national practice and leads the firm’s 22-attorney Estate Planning & Asset Protection group where one of her priorities is mentoring younger, up-and-coming attorneys. She is a prolific writer and dynamic contributor to television news stations. She leverages her knowledge of charitable planning to help many nonprofits and has been recognized for her exemplary dedication and contributions to philanthropy.
