Salvi Salvi & Wifler established is roots in 1952, when the firm's founder, Albert Salvi moved from Chicago to Lake Zurich to start a family and open his law practice. Soon after arriving in Lake Zurich, Albert quickly gained a reputation as a skilled attorney, handling mostly civil litigation, divorce, and estate planning work. In 1964, Albert was elected a Magistrate Judge, a part time position that allowed him to continue and grow his law practice. As Albert's practice expanded, so did his family. Albert and his wife Marita, raised 9 children in Lake Zurich, 5 of whom are highly successful practicing attorneys.
