Helping people since 1996 in the areas of bankruptcy, divorce, child support, custody and real estate. I love what I do and my philosophy is that the more you know about what is happening in your life, the better off you will be. I like to educate my clients about what is going on legally so that they can make good decisions for themselves, once they know all of the options that are available to them. I offer personalized legal services in both English and in Spanish, having grown up bilingual. I am the married mother of two children and my offices are located in the suburbs of Chicago. My DuPage County office is in Itasca and my Cook County office is in Schaumburg.
In 2013, I completed my book, Defending the Ending, which is a valuable resource for people who are thinking about or are going through a divorce. It is available on my website for immediate download and I also offer free hard copies to those who live in DuPage, Cook or Kane Counties.

Carol has written informative books about the law that her clients have found to be very helpful in selecting a lawyer. I work with Carol in a professional lawyers group, she is very knowledgeable about bankruptcy as well as her other practice areas and also brings a warm and caring personality to her work which is uncommon among lawyers.

Carol was an opposing counsel on a divorce matter. She represented her client well, while also professionally working towards a favorable resolution of the matter. She was not overly or unnecessarily contentious, and she instead worked towards finalizing the case, which was in both parties’ interests.
