Less than a year after graduating from Law school, Modupe Sobo, began working for herself as a solo practitioner, specializing in the area of Family Law. She therefore handles divorces, both contested and uncontested, Paternity, child support, visitation and custody. "I enjoy helping people get through what is often, one of the most stressful time in their lives. There is nothing more rewarding to me than having a client say a heartfelt Thank You".

Modupe is a Certified Arbitrator with the Mandatory Cook County Arbitration program, where she hears and decides civil disputes. She is also a Hearing Panel Member for the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, where she presides over attorney disciplinary proceedings.  In addition, Modupe Sobo is a Certified Mediator, having trained with the Center for Conflict Resolution.

Modupe is a firm believer in the mantra "To whom much is given, much is expected." She volunteers at her church once a month, thereby providing legal advice and representation to people who are less fortunate.
