About Me

Free 30 Minute Consultation.  Call Now 847-249-2830



I have been practicing in family law matters in Lake County and the northern suburbs of Illinois since 1993. I have a deep understanding of family law allowing me to meet client needs to resolve their simple or complex divorce matters including property division and parenting agreements. In addition, I can assist my clients with custody, visitation and support and adoption issues which may become complicated if the parties live in different states or are difficult to locate.

My clients receive my personal attention and quick responses to their questions and needs because of my focused practice and expertise, streamlining legal process and costs, while providing quality results.

There is no fee for an initial consultation in most cases. My office is conveniently located in Waukegan in the northern suburbs of Illinois. I am less than a block from the Lake County Courthouse. Call today for an initial consultation.
