Tami has worked her entire legal career helping high net-worth professionals and their spouses navigate complex family law matters. The individual attention she provides clients ensures their specific concerns are considered and addressed while developing a plan for their financial futures.
Working with clients to identify and prioritize their financial and parenting issues and goals is a crucial step in each case for Tami, and a constant work in progress. She understands that each client comes to her with different needs, goals and priorities, and if there are children involved, their best interests come before all other considerations.
Tami has extensive experience addressing and demystifying executive compensation benefits and contracts, as well as dealing with valuations and cash flow issues of closely held businesses. She truly enjoys helping clients develop and assess their positions on financial issues by taking complex financial data and creating realistic models of potential outcomes so clients can assess their options as a whole and make the best decisions for their futures.
While a skilled litigator, Tami prefers to resolve cases outside of the courtroom, when appropriate, so clients can actively participate in and direct their own settlements through mediation or other alternative dispute methods. Her extensive training in mediation and the collaborative model help settle, even in the midst of litigation, the most difficult issues.
Tami has been with the firm since 2004 after working opposite of Audrey on a case when she was a law student at Chicago-Kent College of Law’s family law clinic. She joined the firm as an associate upon graduating from Kent in 2005 and was promoted to partner in 2012. She received her B.A. from Purdue University in 1996.
Prior to attending law school, Tami was the Director of Special Events for a radio station group in Indianapolis, Indiana, and subsequently worked as an assistant publicist at a Los Angeles entertainment public relations firm. Even though Tami was originally lured to the legal field to work in entertainment law, she found her versatility and background especially suited for helping individual people through an extraordinarily difficult time in their life.
