About me

Skillful settlement obtained where possible, shrewd litigation where necessary. Specialized experience against highest levels of competition & competence. Consistently & effectively tackled cases others thought hopeless, confronted attorneys others found too intimidating. 


SKILLS RELEVANT TO FINANCIAL ASPECTS OF DIVORCE


By way of educational and professional background, I have extensive knowledge of accounting, valuation, statistics, taxation, econometrics and economics. Skill set enables superior asset/liability allocation, discovery of hidden income/assets, support payment litigation, etc.  Examples of specific contexts include litigation involving:



  • Appraisal of Residential and Commercial Real Estate 

  • Valuation of Closely Held Companies

  • Forensic Accounting and/or Tracing 

  • Analysis of Diverse, Complex and/or Prodigious Classes of Assets/Liabilities

  • Arguments Regarding Upward/Downward Deviation from Guideline Support

  • Determination of True and Actual Income 


REPRESENTATIVE CLIENTS


I have represented and opposed a diverse group of professionals including:



  • Senior Corporate Executives (including CEOs, CFOs, Presidents and Directors) 

  • Entrepreneurs & Owners of Closely Held Entities

  • Medical Doctors (surgeons, specialists and general practitioners) & Nurses

  • Psychologists & Therapists

  • Commodity Traders & Stockbrokers

  • Aerospace, Nuclear & Software Engineers

  • I.T. Professionals 

  • Educators & Administrators

  • Newscasters 

  • Attorneys

  • Police Detectives 


Equally importantly, I take great pride in representing homemakers who sacrifice their career opportunities for the sake of the children, their spouse and the upkeep of the marital residence.

  • Joshua Gene Rohrscheib

    I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Kazmar several years ago. He was an exceptional mentor and taught me many practical aspects of practicing law. He is an aggressive, creative problem solver, with a true love of the law. If you want an aggressive, creative divorce lawyer in the Chicagoland area, call Kazmar. I'd also recommend reading his contributions on Avvo for sound practical advice.
