Practice areas

I was born in Wisconsin and have lived in Chicago since the 1970s.

I graduated the University of Wisconsin and then I worked in the area of child abuse for eight years for the department of Children and Family Services before I decided to go to law school.

I worked as an attorney for the Legal Aid bureau in Chicago, doing divorce and providing services for an underserviced population from 1990 to 1995.

In 1995, Marta and I decided to open up our own practice. Since that time, Marta and I have had the practice. We now have an office at 161 N. Clark, #4700 in Chicago and an office at 1000 Lake Street, Oak Park, Illinois.

I am also certified as a Mediator and am on the Mediator List for Judges to refer cases to.

Caring Lawyer
Linda was my divorce attorney, she cared for me and the kids well being. She took the appropriate steps to ensure me that she will do her best and be fair to me and the kids with my x-wife. With Linda's experience, I followed her advice all through the divorce, knowing I was the more stable parent, I hired a lawyer for the kids and she suggested having a psychological testing for myself and x-wife. After 26 months of being patient and following Linda's advice, I did receive sole custody of my three children and very fair divorce agreement with my x-wife. I would recommend Linda to anyone.

Kind & Respectful during my divorce
Linda is a vey warm and listened to my concerns at all times. She respected my personal information and made the process of divorce less stressful. She was reasonably with fees/charges and was always available through email.

A Reserved Fighter
Linda was both calm when required, and forceful as needed. She was great at guiding me through the difficult ocean of custody issues. She assisted in tailoring a plan that was impenetrable. I will certainly reach back out to her if the need arises. Lastly, a big thank you to Linda for preserving my relationship with my children...
