I have focused on the practice of family law for my entire legal career.
I practice all areas of family law, including, but not limited to, divorce, paternity, child custody, visitation, removal litigation, grandparent visitation, adoption, child support, maintenance and spousal support formerly known as alimony, orders of protection, enforcing court orders and judgments, guardinaship, and post-judgment litigation, in DuPage, Kane, Will, Kendall, and Cook County. I do not generally charge my clients for any travel time or parking related expenses.
I also handle appeals. I have argued in front of the Second District Court of Appeals and I have drafted numerous briefs at the Appellate Court level.
I pride myself on keeping my clients informed and in the loop during the divorce process. Communication is paramount in having a successful attorney-client relationship. I have substantial experience trying cases and putting on hearings. I also have the skills to succesfully negotiate cases so as to avoid the expense of a full-blown trial.
My firm also handles criminal defense cases. We handle just about every criminal case, including but not limited to domestic battery, DUI, traffic tickets and other felonies.
Contact me at the office, 630-668-4211, or feel free to email me, firstname.lastname@example.org. Consultations are free (on the phone or in person). I will make myself available to meet with you after normal business hours or on weekends.
