John,
I would highly recommend Brian Axelrad. He is very experienced in start-up law and funding etc. He is also a mentor for the Startup Leadership Program in Chicago (SLP) and is very well connected in the VC and Founder community and always has the interest of the founder top of mind.
Feel free to reach out to him directly or I am happy to make an intro (you're more than welcome to mention I sent you his info).

John,

I would recommend talking to Art Mertes at Synergy Law Group. He has experience with company structuring, angel & venture capital raises, as well as complex litigation in various tech areas. I became familiar with him through a great guest lecture he gave in a class of mine on best practices & common pitfalls for early startups.
