Practice areas
  1. Family
    Attorney Guimond-Quigley has been a compassionate and committed family lawyer in Illinois since 2008. When it comes to your most prized possession, your family, you'll want her by your side. Stop worrying, call her today.

  2. Divorce and separation
    The divorce process can be emotionally and financially overwhelming for the parties involved. Many issues can arise during a divorce including: property division, child support, maintenance, bankruptcy, and more.

  3. Estate planning
    You have worked hard at building a life – we make sure the people and things most important to you are protected in case of your disability or death.

  4. Probate
    Administration services when a loved one dies to ensure the estate is wound up pursuant to the decedent’s estate plan or, if no plan existed, pursuant to the default laws that exist in Illinois.

  5. Child custody
    There are four main areas of parental decision-making responsibilities that must be allocated in any divorce or parentage matter involving children: education, health, religion and extracurricular activities.

  6. Child support
    Child support in Illinois recently changed to an “income shares” model which takes into account both parties’ income and actual child-rearing costs. Determination of support can be complex, which is why you should talk to a lawyer.

  7. Domestic violence
    An order of protection is a court order that protects victims of domestic violence from their abuser. Abuse takes many forms and it is important for victims to know their rights with regard to any and all potential legal remedies provided by the law.

  8. Real estate
    Attorney Guimond-Quigley is experienced with Illinois real estate law and is capable of assisting you with real estate legal inquiries.

  9. Marriage and prenuptials
    Pre-nuptial agreements and post-nuptial agreements allow parties to a marriage to work out their financial issues before a divorce is ever filed.

Jennifer is the owner and managing attorney at the Law Office of Jennifer Guimond-Quigley, currently in its tenth year of operation. She realized early on in law school that she had a passion for both family law and estate planning. After gaining experience in these two areas both during and after law school through several small firm positions, Jennifer decided to start her own firm. With her solo practice, Jennifer loves having the freedom to collaborate with her clients to achieve the best results possible without the constraints common to practicing with larger firms.

Jennifer has an extensive background in business and accounting, which has been invaluable in her legal practice. She spent years working as an accountant, and that experience has been imperative in counseling her clients about the financial and tax impact of their decisions and agreements. Jennifer’s comfort level with numbers allows her to easily explain their complexities in a relatable way to her clientele.

Jennifer resides in Chicago with her husband and children. When she’s not practicing law, she enjoys spending time with family, cooking and donating her time to various charitable organizations.

Estate Planning
We recently set up a trust for our family with Jennifer. She was able to assist us with some very specific terms we desired and also made other recommendations that we didn't think of but included as well. We will definitely recommend her.

Responsive, affordable and effective.
I hired Jennifer to protect my interests in the matter of my inheritance. Jennifer protected my interests. Jennifer understood that I was concerned and anxious, and provided me not only excellent legal advice and representation, but also moral support throughout this protracted ordeal. Jennifer is compassionate and highly competent. I will retain her for future work, including creating my own will and trust. I am glad I found Jennifer, and that I hired her to protect my interests.

Excellent service and guidance
I worked with Jennifer to create a will, medical will and transfer on deed of my property. She made the whole process very simple, had quick turnaround times and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I would recommend her to anyone seeking solid expertise and pleasant, fast service.

We did a trust with her. She explained everything very clearly. Returned our phone calls quickly and never rushed us off the phone with our questions.

Knowledgeable and Thorough
Jennifer drafted an estate plan for my husband and me. We had a unique family issue with a particular asset which required some attention. Jennifer was very thorough in her in counseling, research and drafting with respect to this issue. She was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. We are very pleased with the result.

Wonderful experience
We were dreading getting our legal affairs in order after our kids were born. Who wants to think about death when you are still on a baby high but we knew it had to be done. We found Jennifer through NPN and knew she was the lawyer for us after our first conversation- she is very friendly, knowledgeable and patient (we needed some nudging to get our butts in gear after we started). She took what can be a very overwhelming process and made it less daunting which is a huge task if you ask me. She was always easy to reach and responsive and answered all our questions. She even researched the legal requirements for North Carolina after we decided to move-during the middle of estate planning process. I will be recommending her to all of our friends.

Highly Recommended Estate Planning Lawyer
Jennifer is very professional, yet extremely personable. When having to schedule our meetings she was very flexible in both time and location, which made it very accomodating on us and our newborn daughter. In terms of experience, she is very knowledgeable and provided thorough explanations of the complicated law lingo included in the documents she prepared for us. She followed up promptly on any quieres we had and was very easy to work with. We would highly recommend her services.

I recently used Jennifer's assistance in closing on a condo in the Chicago area. She was professional and prompt in dealing with both me, the real estate agents and the condo association president. I highly recommend Jennifer for this type of work.
