About me

I recently joined Grotta & Associates, PC, a family law firm located in Orland Park, Joliet & Chicago. We handle all types of family law cases. In addition, I represent clients in adoption and DCFS appeals. I often serve as a Guardian Ad Litem (attorney for the children's best interests) in Will County, Illinois. We handle all types of family law cases, including complicated financial cases and custody cases. We strive to always be improving our skills and knowledge base through constant training.
