Monika M Blacha

About me

I started my own practice after thirteen years of practicing with one of the largest law firms in Chicago.  While there, I represented clients in complex cases proving myself as a trial lawyer and making sure that the end result of each case met the clients' needs and interests.  My practice is no different.  I believe that my clients' needs have to be met in each and every case.  I know that divorce, the drafting of a will, planning or an estate and/or executing/probating an estate are emotional times for you and your family.  The law can seem both complex and intimidating.  My job is to alleviate those stresses and be on your side during this difficult and complex time in your life.
