Debra helped me to negotiate a Post-Nuptial agreement. My husband and I have an unconventional situation. Debra is very intelligent, savvy, and enormously helpful. She drafted an excellent and fair agreement, while also looking out for my rights. Debra is very experienced and professional, yet she is able to cut through issues and offer an honest appraisal of a dynamic that effects short and long term life decisions. Great attorney!

Debra recently represented me in my divorce. Her experience was evident and helped me acheive a fair settlement in a difficult, unprecedented case. She was always fair, upstanding and willing to go the extra mile to resolve whatever issues came about. Her years of experience were a definite plus in analyzing the options and arriving at practical solutions for complex issues. I would highly recommend Debra!

I had the pleasure of first meeting Debra when I worked with her on a custody matter. I was blown away by her superior knowledge and extreme professionalism. After working with Debra, I have had the honor of becoming her friend and I have come to value her as a mentor. She is compassionate with her clients while being a zealous advocate for them. I cannot endorse this lawyer enough.

Ms. Braselton is considered to be one of the finest family law attorneys in DuPage County and is well known for her exemplary skills in the family law arena. Ms. Braselton has the reputation for being highly ethical and honest, and she brings civility to the family law profession. She does not engage in needless litigation, but rather chooses to resolve her cases efficiently and effectively. I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Braselton in numerous contested and collaborative law cases in her capacity as the opposing counsel over the past several years. Collaborative law is a process that allows the parties to facilitate their own divorce settlement. Ms. Braselton is known as being an outstanding member in the collaborative law community.
