Our Practice Philosophy

Our family and divorce attorneys operate and practice law on a simple philosophy: the client comes first!

We understand that no two cases or clients are alike, that’s why we will take the time to methodically review the specific details of your case in order to develop a customized strategy that fits your needs. We will carefully listen to your thoughts, concerns and goals and will provide straightforward, precise and honest legal advice. Starting with our detailed intake procedures, our process is geared at understanding your case so that we can be sure to provide you with the best possible legal services at a fair price.

We know that family law is one that is full of emotional difficulties, social problems, life-changing events and extreme uncertainty. If there are children involved, this is magnified many times over. This is not an impersonal area of the law – it's your life!

With such an empathetic understanding of what our clients are experiencing, we've made it our ultimate goal to help ease our client's mind through all stages of the case. We encourage cooperation with the other side when possible and always work toward creating an environment that fosters collaboration to help ease anxiety, efficiently reach a solution and soothe otherwise turbulent emotions. We are here to solve problems, not create new ones.

We, however, also recognize that this level of cooperation is not always possible. In these cases, we readily advocate for our clients and work tirelessly to ensure that their rights are defended.

 

Our attorneys are here to provide not only kind and compassionate legal guidance, but also stand by your side with aggressive and effective protection.

Divorce

Our divorce lawyers works to ensure that all issues relevant to your divorce are thoroughly investigated and carefully handled. These topics may include child custody, child support, spousal maintenance (alimony) and property division.  We will take the time to talk with you, explain your options and understand your needs. We put legal experience to work for you in ensuring that your rights are protected and your interests are met in all aspects of your divorce matter.

Our divorce practice includes handling uncontested divorces and contested divorces. We are fully prepared to answer all questions or deal with all matters in your divorce, from issues of parental responsibility to questions of attorney’s fees and costs.

Post-Judgment Matters

A divorce judgment is meant to be final, but the court's decision is not always the last word, and a change in circumstances in the future may justify going back to court to modify court orders. Or attorneys have the experience to address post-divorce matters such as modifications of final judgments, child relocation, or contempt and enforcement of Illinois domestic relations court orders.

Orders regarding custody, support and other matters are court orders that cannot be changed without first going back to court and convincing the judge that a modification is justified. Our family law attorneys routinely advocate for their clients who are seeking or opposing a post-judgment modification. We also represent clients in contempt or other enforcement proceedings when one party is alleged to be out of compliance with orders of the court.

Child Support and Parenting Time 

Getting the financial support you need, or getting a favorable schedule to spend time with your children can be extremely difficult. Our family law attorneys are experienced in utilizing the strategies necessary to negotiate and secure an agreement or order that is in both your child's and your best interest. We understand just how difficult these situations can be on both you and your children. Therefore, we will listen to you, understand your goals, and apply that information to our experience to advocate for you in the best possible manner to get the outcome that you deserve.

Contact us today to get your questions answered and find out how our experienced family law attorneys can help you navigate through the difficult waters and put all we can in your favor for the most favorable outcome in your divorce, child support, parenting time or other domestic relations matter.
