About Me

I am a Spanish-speaking attorney with a reputation for treating my clients with courtesy and respect. I have concentrated my legal practice in general civil litigation, workers' compensation, and criminal and traffic defense, and famly law.  If I can't help you with a problem, I will lead you to a colleague that I trust to help you.  I concentrate my practice in Lake, McHerny and Cook County and am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.

    Ms. Schottland is a tenacious and aggressive litigator for her clients. She is a very knowledgeable attorney in the fields of workers compensation and criminal defense. I have referred many cases to her and all the clients have been extremely happy with her work. Without reservation or qualification, I highly recommend this outstanding lawyer.

  • Elizabeth Marie Vonau

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Ms. Schottland for years. She works very hard to get her client's the very best results possible. She is highly respected in the community. When she is not advocating for her clients she is an advocate in the community volunteering her time to raise awareness and support for local charities.
