Tonya M. Parravano

Tonya M. Parravano joined Haskin, Corrigan, Tabis & Parravano, P.C. in 2015. 

Ms. Parravano earned a B.S. in Family and Consumer Economics from Michigan State University and her J.D. degree, with high honors, from the Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago-Kent College of Law, where she was an associate editor of the Chicago-Kent Law Review and was inducted into The Order of the Coif.  

Most recently a partner with Crowley, Barrett & Karaba, Ltd., Ms Parravano began her legal career representing financial institutions and small businesses in both transactional and commercial litigation matters and expanded her practice to include commercial construction and development lending. During the economic downturn, Tonya’s background in commercial foreclosures allowed her to easily transition her practice to include commercial loan restructuring and modification, commercial foreclosures, OREO real estate sales and other workout matters. 

When she is not working on a new loan or the courtroom, Tonya enjoys making presentations for private events or seminars on various aspects of commercial lending for the firm’s financial institution clients and other groups.  Tonya continues to focus her practice on representing financial institutions and private business entities in banking and commercial finance transactions, commercial mortgage foreclosures and collection matters, commercial real estate transactions, and small business corporate matters.

Currently residing in Naperville, Ms. Parravano is also a co-owner of downtown Wheaton’s premier florist and wedding and event floral design firm, Andrew’s Garden.  She is active in the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Wheaton Association.
