About Me

I am an experienced Chicagoland area family law mediator and litigator and immigration law practitioner. I pride myself on my professionalism and availability to my clients, who can always contact me directly. I maximize use of technology to save you time and money.


I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Psychology and Political Science, and completed my Juris Doctor degree at the DePaul University College of Law in 2000. Since then, I have been practicing law, handling many negotiations, litigating intensive family law cases, as well as representing immigration clients.


I have twelve years experience in civil litigation, mainly in areas of family law and domestic violence, and related areas in Cook, DuPage and Kane Counties in Illinois. For over six years, I have practiced immigration law, representing individual and business clients locally in DuPage and Cook Counties, throughout Illinois and world-wide.


I have been mediating conflicts for over a decade. I mediate out of my offices in DuPage and Chicago, but also have by appointment location in Lincoln Park and Lincoln Square in Chicago; near O'Hare International Airport in Chicago; Skokie; Deerfield; Lake Forest; and Schaumburg.


I have represented clients in contested divorce and related litigation, including dissolution of civil union; family law negotiations and immigration matters in Cook and DuPage Counties. I have extensive experience preparing prenuptial (premarital), postnuptial and pre-civil union agreements, Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO's) and Qualified Illinois Domestic Relations Orders (QILDR's). I am a court approved Guardian Ad Litem and custody/visitation Mediator.


I immigrated from Poland as a child, my wife is from Spain, and we have a son and twin daughters. I am a member of the Illinois State, DuPage County, and Chicago Bar Associations, as well as the American Immigration Lawyers Association. I am fluent in Polish and speak conversational Spanish.


A Strong, Reliable and Convenient Ally In Your Corner

I have offices in DuPage County and downtown Chicago, with offices by appointment throughout the Chicagoland area. I am always available, providing you my mobile number and responding to calls and e-mails same day whenever possible. I do not accept cases I do not intend on handling attentively and well. My aim is to do the worrying for you so you can go on with your life.
