I have counseled clients in over a hundred divorce, paternity, child custody and child support cases, including trials and contested hearings. I gained my divorce experience at a large divorce firm in downtown Chicago, representing business owners, professionals, and high income/high net worth individuals.
I graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in finance, which makes me different than almost all other divorce attorneys because I understands complicated financial matters. Most divorce attorneys will not understand business valuations, close corporations, unique investment structures, and retirement assets. I understand tax returns, income statements, balance sheets, and business appraisals that leave most family law attorneys confused.
I moved to Illinois in 2011 to raise a family of my own. As a father and husband, I understand how important it is for a parent to have a close relationship with his or her children, and how a divorce can and will change ever aspect of a person's life.

Mark Schondorf is a fine divorce lawyer, who is passionate about his work, and represents his client's interests well. I was recently an opposing counsel to Mark on a difficult case. Mark combined a tough '"no nonsense" approach to the litigation while maintaining a high degree of professionalism throughout the course of the litigation..
