I have been licensed in Illinois since 1974, practicing in the Cook County State's Attorney's office for 3 years (1974 - 1977); My family lived on Long Island, New York for several years, so I also became licensed in New York in 1981 and worked for several years in the Queens District Attorney's Office (1985-1986); we returned to Illinois in 1986 and I worked in the Lake County State's Attorney's office from 1987 to 1991.
I have been in private practice since 1991. My practice is a general practice -handling adoptions primarily, residential real estate closings, probate, guardianship (both disabled adults and minors), juvenile matters, preparation of wills and trusts. I am also an experienced criminal defense attorney and will accept clients with felony or criminal cases, including DUI and traffic violations.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. I've known Bridget for over 20 years, going back to my days as a Lake County Public Defender. Bridget was a felony assistant in the Lake County State's attorney's office at that time. She is intelligent, experienced, compassionate and even tempered, key qualities for a practitioner in family law. I highly recommend Bridget, without any reservation whatsoever.
