Michelle K. Grayzeck is the founding attorney of Grayzeck Law Group, P.C., and has established herself in the legal community as a superb litigator and zealous advocate of her clients both in Enlgish and Polish.

Born and raised in Chicago, Michelle’s love for the City is only matched for her love of her family’s home in Poland. From the Northwest side, Michelle grew up in a Police and Military family and was able to see the need for good advocates early on.  Jesuit Educated at Loyola Academy, Michelle, continuing the legacy of a Jesuit Education and obtained her Bachelor of Science degrees in Political Science and Psychology from Saint Louis University. Returning to Chicago, Michelle earned her Juris Doctorate from The John Marshall Law School. Working throughout College and Law School, Michelle learned how to economically divide her time between demanding routines – a skill that separates her from many attorneys of her generation. 

Michelle has been working in the same areas of law that her firm now practices for over seven years. Michelle’s litigation experience is concentrated significantly in the field of Family and Matrimonial law matters, including Divorce, Property Division, Annulments, Child Custody, Parentage, Visitation, Maintenance, Support, Orders of Protection, Mediation, Pre-decree and Post-decree issues. Her extensive experience, not only in the field of Family and Matrimonial law, but also Business Law, Estate Planning, Probate Law, and Real Estate Law provides a vast experience that permits her to properly evaluate complex matters within each case to determine the best solution for obtaining the most favorable outcome for her clients. With years of litigation experience, Michelle offers a proven record of success for her clients.

After years of working in firms with high volumes of litigated matters, both complex and basic, but all very costly, Michelle began contemplating a different way to practice Law. She wanted to be able to provide services for clients, to obtain the outcome that they wanted as well as what they deserved. She was tired of the typical yet unnecessary aspects of litigation firms including running up bills, burning through retainers, dragging out cases, and blind arguments for the sake of arguing. She wanted a return to intelligent and thoughtful client representation – the kind that kept clients coming back for generations for help in all their legal needs. Thus, Grayzeck Law Group, P.C. was created.

While Michelle has a strong, reputable and amicable relationship with opposing counsels and judges within the legal community, she will not hesitate to vigorously litigate on her client’s behalf when necessary. Michelle is a strategic, fierce, and yet compassionate, advocate with experience in both amicably resolving, as well as fiercely litigating complex matters.  Michelle is also is fluent in polish and has several years of experience advocating for an ethnically diverse client base. 

Many cases require Michelle to assist her clients through emotionally difficult times by utilizing her skills as an advocate, counselor and negotiator. She is devoted to treating a client’s needs as her number-one priority and approaches every case with the utmost seriousness and diligence.  Client satisfaction is her ultimate goal - let her experience and methods speak for themselves.

Saved me.
Michelle's excellent representation of me in my latest case deserves a review. In all areas, what separates professionals from each other is from another is knowledge, confidence, and a fierce passion for what one does. Throughout my case, Michelle demonstrated the utmost excellence. Prior to hiring Michelle, my case was handled by two other attorneys and firms, and had been ongoing for almost two years in a battle that made me feel as if I was on the losing end. Faced with frustrating child support laws and newly changed custody law I had lost all hope. After my neighbor, a prior client of Michelle's recommended Michelle I thought it couldn't hurt to at least see what she had to say. It was the best decision I ever made for me, my children, and my family. After my first consult I felt nothing but confidence. Nothing was sugar coated and nothing was promised what she didn't know she could deliver. Throughout the entire process she was direct, honest and upfront about the direction and strength of my case. Unlike my prior attorneys, I never felt as though she was trying to sell me something or promised something she could not deliver. After almost two years of litigation, Michelle came in like a pitbull- compassionate, strong, and loyal and whipped the other side into shape in less than 3 months. In the end I was able to get an outcome nobody else was able to deliver and luckily she saved me and my family. She is the first attorney I recommend to anyone. Luckily her expertise extends to multiple disciplines and as a result I have used Michelle with the sale of my marital home and estate planning since.

Strong Client Advocate
Having Michelle represent me in my divorce made a bad situation into a great experience. She is dedicated to make sure that her clients obtain the best legal advise paired with the best representation in court as possible. When it comes to an experienced straight forward litigator she's the best pick. Her ability to settle cases in her client's favor is amazing. I definitely recommend Michelle to handle your family law matters.
