About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

As an attorney, I have a strong desire to provide quality legal service in all areas of family and domestic relations law. Throughout my years of practice I have acquired valuable knowledge and experience in property division, spousal support, child support, allocation of parental responsibility (formerly known as custody) determination and conflict resolution which has provided me with the foundation for strong legal advocacy. As a result, I fight for my client’s satisfaction with a firm but fair emphasis on positive resolution in and out of the courtroom. With moral principles as my foundation, I guide my clients through all stages of their legal proceedings, while being mindful of the financial and emotional impact that may occur.

 

Prior to joining Kollias & Giese, P.C., I worked with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, Juvenile Delinquency and Child Protection Division at the Juvenile Justice Bureau, the Office of the Public Guardian and then as an Associate Attorney for a Chicago based Family Law Firm. I am also a member of Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA), Chicago Bar Association (CBA), and the DuPage County Bar Association (DCBA). Please contact me to schedule a free in person or telephone consultation.

Highly recommend
If you need a family-child support attorney that will work hard to make sure you have a excellent judgement and get you visitation rights. Ian is the number 1 attorney in my opinion. Listened and worked with me through out the whole process and i feel like i did not lose one court hearing. Great great attorney. I really recommend him.

Fantastic would highly recommend
Mr. Conner recently helped me through a divorce and I could not have asked for better representation. I have used a handful of attorneys in the past and Ian was 100% better than all of them combined. He listened to me and heard what I said and attended to it. Ian showed me the utmost respect by putting a value on my input where most attorneys would ordinarily blow off. He went far above my expectations and went above and beyond his duties by working very hard when push came to shove. I just can’t say enough nice things about him. I highly recommend Mr. Conner.

My lawyer for life !!
Mr. Conner is fantastic. Operates with integrity, is efficient, clear, very knowledgeable, and is genuine. Take it from me as I have had my share of lawyers (4 previous that I let go and about 10 that I have interviewed). Mr. Conner is by far the best and will remain my go-to for any of my post divorce needs. Very responsive - and available during emergency (Covid related) and I could not be happier. Honestly feel very lucky to have good representation and a good working relationship with a legal professional such as Ian. Highly recommend you give his office a call to speak with him for any needs you may have.
