I am very pleased to have had Lyn represent me in negotiating a very involved divorce, covering four minor children and their counsel, two pensions and two QDROs, two 401k plans, and the differing tax consequences in valuing various assets. She was invaluable in creating a solution to convey a house with an existing mortgage cleanly, so that the kids could remain in the school district and the neighborhood, while protecting my interest in ensuring that the mortgage and home equity loans were replaced, and paid off, as soon as practicable. Lyn is very informed as to Illinois law, as well as to the norms and guidelines of the court system in Cook County. She is compassionate, and was a great help in finding a superb counselor for the children. Lyn is a phenomenal resource, and was instrumental in illuminating a path forward for my family in many ways, including of course legal, but also financial and even emotional. I find her to be open minded, real-world oriented, and motivated to find fair and workable outcomes. I recommend her unequivocally and without reservation.

Lyn Conniff represented me in my collaborative divorce process. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to my case. On top of that, she is a lovely person to work with. She has cares about clients and has a great sense of humor. I recommend her highly!

Lyn and I have worked together as opposing counsel on many collaborative divorce cases, and for drafting of premarital agreements. Lyn is smart, efficient, creative, and effective. She is knowledgeable on the law but uses common sense to help solve family problems fairly outside the court system. I endorse Lyn’s family focused approach.
