About Kathleen

Learn Kathleen’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Divorce and separation

  2. Family
    The majority of my practice involves divorce, parentage, maintenance, child support, allocation of parental responsibility (formerly called child custody), parenting time & related matters. Practicing in DuPage, Kane, Will, Kendall and Cook Counties.

  3. Child custody

  4. Child support

  5. Mediation
    Many family law matters can be resolved by way of mediation. The process allows the parties to maintain control of the decisions that are right for their family, save a great deal on attorney's fees, and reach the best solution for all involved.

  6. Uncontested divorce

  7. Adoption
    We provide services for all types of adoption, foreign, domestic, related and unrelated. Helping to build families through adoption is one of the great joys of my work.

  8. Alimony

  9. Bankruptcy and debt
    The stress of overwhelming debt can have a negative impact on a person's overall quality of life. While Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may not be the answer for each person's situation, it may be the key to open your way to financial freedom.

  10. Marriage and prenuptials

Thank God for Katie!!
I felt as though I was already at a disadvantage being male in DuPage and seeking as much time as possible with my daughter. My ex wanted to fight over every little thing possible. After 6.5 years and several lawyers later, by the grace of God, I found Katie. Katie turned the entire case around and it was resolved in 18 months. Katie diligently reviewed the case file and had my ex figured out. She always responded to my calls and emails in a very timely manner. She was well prepared for all of our hearings. My case was a mess filled with drama and I don't know what I would have done without Katie. Thank you for everything! As of today, I have a 50/50 spilt with my daughters mom. I would highly recommend her for any and all aspects of a divorce or parentage case.

Highly qualified
Katie Kenny was a member of a firm of which I was a partner. We were always pleased with her work and demeanor. In addition, after I retired, we retained Katie for a large civil case in which we were involved. Katie has always been punctual, respectful, very thoughtful in sorting out issues, calm, insightful in her analysis, thorough and professional. I recommend Kate Kenny without reservation.

All-Around Outstanding!
A few years ago, I had recently moved to DuPage County and was in desperate need of a new family attorney. After a bad experience with a previous lawyer, I was set on hiring an attorney I could trust. My family member knew Katie Kenny years ago, so we gave her office a call... and to our surprise (and delight), Katie answered the phone herself and invited us in for a meeting right away! From the moment I first walked into her office, I felt immediately comfortable with Ms. Kenny. She is respectful, kind, empathetic, personable, and dedicated in every way. Katie confidently provides outstanding service, communication, and representation. Her presence in the courtroom is unmatched by any other attorney I have observed, and most importantly, Katie went above and beyond in assuring I was well informed and comfortable throughout the entire process.
