DEDICATED DIVORCE ATTORNEY TO HELP YOU FIND THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. CALL FOR A FREE CONSULTATION.

The most gratifying part of practicing matrimonial law is to be able to give guidance and help people through one of, if not the most, difficult times of their lives.  My goal in most cases is to help clients resolve their issues in an amicable manner to a positive resolution, as the majority of cases do not proceed to trial.  However, there are certain cases that cannot be settled for a multitude of reasons.  As such, I am always prepared to litigate the issues.  I maintain the mindset of a litigator while always being open to discussing settlement.  Being prepared to take the case to trial, often times, will result in a more favorable result through settlement.  I started my legal career practicing in a wide variety of areas of law, ranging from criminal law to real estate transactions to all areas of civil litigation.  I now practice exclusively in the area of matrimonial law.  My prior experience in other areas of law has been invaluable for my practice, as the practice of matrimonial law overlaps with so many other areas of law and requires knowledge of these other areas of law.  When I am not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, and playing basketball.  I was born and raised in the Chicago area, where I currently reside with my wife and three children.

Post-Decree Matter
Mr. Hudzik handled post-decree issues that arose in my divorce case. He was professional, courteous, extremely knowledgeable regarding the issues in the case, and, in my opinion, went above and beyond to settle the case to my satisfaction, which he ultimately did. I already have and will continue to recommend his services to anyone.

Excellent representation
Michael was excellent in his representation. He communicated everything, worked hard to reach a resolution outside of litigation but wasn’t afraid to take the case to trial in order to resolve it. I was very happy with him and although I hope to never need his legal representation again, if I do, I know he’ll do a wonderful job. He was a pleasure to work with and I have the utmost respect for him as a person and as an attorney.

Great advocate, honest attorney
I retained Mike Hudzik last year & my only regret is not have doing it sooner. I’m very grateful for the support & guidance he provided during his time on the case, he was very insightful & would have answers to questions I haven’t even thought of asking yet. His guidance, advocacy, honesty, & reassuring nature makes him a great attorney. He helps rationalize a situation, offers great solutions to mediate a situation, & is one of the most kind & genuine attorneys out there. I never felt my issues went unheard or that my case wasn’t a priority, he was always there to answer questions or address my concerns immediately. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Hudzik to anyone seeking a family law attorney, thank you for everything!

Knowledge, systematic and experienced
I have been a client of Michael Hudzik. What I like about him and his approach towards the case is that he is very knowledge about the laws and gives the client the option to choose from what best suits for the client. Michael's approach has been more systematic and towards the benefit of the client. He makes sure that his client is aware of what benefits/loss will incur to his client based on which route they take to move the case forward. I highly recommend him.

Mike was a lifesaver in a difficult time!
Mike Hudzik was kind, professional and quick at winning my custody case for me! He is not "out for money" as most attorneys are, he is there to help and guide through an already difficult situation. I am SO thankful I chose Mike to represent me! I highly recommend him!

Great Experience all around
Dear Readers, It is my pleasure to share my experience with Michael Hudzik as my lawyer. I started working with Michael Hudzik at the end of August 2022, after reading his reviews on Avvo. Michael Hudzik offered honest guidance in making the process as speedy and uncumbersome as possible. I wanted the divorce to be as amicable as possible. Michael made the divorce paperwork easy to read and understandable as possible. Also, impressive was his communication skills. I was never left wondering if he received a text message or an email. As we partnered together to get the job done, he continued to guide and advise me as necessary. Within approximately 6 weeks, my husband and me were divorced.

Outstanding legal work
Michael Hudzik is the best lawyer I have ever hired. I was on a verge of losing until I fired my lawyer and hired Michael instead. He swooped in at the last minute and revived our case. He is sharp, trustworthy, communicative, and most importantly he put in the work to make sure we presented the absolute strongest arguments possible. I would recommend Michael Hudzik to anyone, he is an exceptional attorney.
