About Me

I founded Fahnert, LLC, after working as a divorce lawyer at a public-interest legal clinic in Chicago. I realized that the private sector needed the same smart and caring lawyers who worked in the public interest sector. Thus, my law firm has the client-focused philosophy of doing good, putting clients first, and resolving issues as efficiently as possible.
