Firm Overview

The Oldest Family Law Firm In Illinois

The outcome of your divorce can impact the rest of your life. For some people, the impact is positive. They're able to use the family law courts to reach agreements they couldn't reach on their own. For other people, reaching agreements in divorce and custody matters is taxing, and at the end of the process, both parties are upset with the outcome.

No family law lawyer in Chicago can guarantee the outcome of a case. But when you find a firm with attorneys who have more than 100 years of combined experience, you know the attorneys there will have the experience to help you achieve your goals.

The Practice That Makes Perfect

We cannot guarantee that our clients' lives will be perfect after divorce. However, we strive to perfect everything we offer to our clients, and we hope that thoughtful representation will allow clients to move forward after their divorces are finalized.

We Treat All Cases The Same Way

Our firm has earned a reputation for offering CEOs, professional athletes and celebrities the representation they need during divorce. However, we handle more than just high-end divorce cases, and we treat all our clients the same. We are committed to achieving the best outcomes for our clients, regardless of the size of their assets.
