I am an attorney that practices family law at Law Office of Tiffany M. Hughes. I also have a strong background in criminal law and international human rights.
I have previously worked at Consumer Law Group as a family law attorney, where I handled both divorce and parentage cases.
My previous work in the field of criminal law was at the Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) and the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority. I have worked on civil rights cases at the Law Offices of Richard Dvorak, as well as the Law Offices of Kenneth Flaxman.
I received an advanced LL.M. in Public International Law with a specialization in International Criminal Law from Leiden University in August 2014. I have published several works related to international criminal law and international human rights in the past four years.
