  3. Family

    20 years

The first divorce I handled was my own.  I personally understand the emotional turmoil associated with a family law case.  By making the process as easy as possible reduces my clients' level of stress and anxiety.


2000-2005.  While attending Southern Illinois University School of Law, I worked for two local law firms and conducted mediations for the SIU Alternative Dispute Resolution Clinic.  I began my legal career in Ogle County working for a former Ogle County State's attorney in a general practice firm.  Although involved in many different types of law, the majority of my practice was family law.

2005-2007. I created the civil practice for a high volume criminal firm in Rockford.  I saw the need for the firm to assist criminal clients with Orders of Protection as well as their divorce, paternity, and custody cases.  Many clients needed their child support reduced.  Some clients needed to execute a power of attorney or a will while their criminal cases were pending.  This role gave me invaluable insight in the attorney-client relationship and the value of meeting clients' needs.


I opened my own law firm to focus on the needs of clients.  Because a family law case strains an individual both mentally and monetarily, every clients needs to have effect representation at a reasonable rate. 

GOAL: resolved every case as cost-effective and quickly as possible while pursuing the client's objectives

UNDERSTANDNG THE CASE.  Explaining each state, each document, and each court appearance, I take the confusion out of a family law case.  When a client understands what is being said in court and in the pleadings, clients are able to actively participate in the case.  The process shouldn't be a mystery.  With me as your attorney, you will understand the process, the paperwork, and the court proceedings.  


FAMILY LAW.  I limit my practice to family law cases.  There are many attorneys who practice family law but few practice only family law.  If you have a family law case, you need an attorney, such as myself, who solely practices family law.  Limiting my practice allows me to be familiar with the vast nuances of each accept involved in the practice of family law: custody, visitation, child support, maintenance, retirement accounts, real property, personal property, debt allocation, college expenses, etc.

JUDGES.  Knowing the judge is key to representing clients effectively.  If you do 
not regularly appear before a judge it is difficult to advise clients about that 
judge.   Learning the idiosyncrasies of a judge is just as important as knowing 
how that judge interprets the law.  To be cognizant of the family law judges I limits my practice to Boone and Winnebago counties.

COUNTIES. Every county is part of a Judicial Circuit.  Each circuit has its own 
local court rules that apply only to the counties in the circuit.  In addition to the 
Illinois Supreme Court Rules and the statutes, attorneys must know the local 
court rules.  These rules vary widely between circuits.  The 17th Judicial Circuit 
does not have any rules about contempt petitions whereas the 15th Judicial 
Circuit has extensive rules.  Failure to know the local court rules can have 
expensive consequences for clients.  I limit my family law practice to the two counties of the 17th Judicial Circuit: Boone and Winnebago.

Sweet, sensitive and truly caring attorney
I loved having Angela represent me. She worked very hard for my cause and was very reasonable fee wise almost too good. She is very easy to talk to and made court seem a lot less intimidating. I have severe anxiety and she always made me feel relaxed and confident. Thank you Angela for all your hard work

I retained Angela for my divorce proceeding. This was the best call I could have made. Angela is attentive, and tells you the truth, even if it is not what you particularly want to hear. She legitimately cares about her clients. I had what could have been a very complicated divorce. Angela crafted a settlement that was in my best interest and one that was approved quickly by the court, which saved me time and legal fees. She is about results, not in meaningless and endless battles that in the end accomplish nothing. I highly recommend her and would strongly suggest retaining her quickly before your ex finds out she is out there. I was very, very glad she was representing me and not sitting at the other table .

Great lawyer
Angela has been my lawyer now for over 8 years. I highly recommend her expertise and experience. She's very focused on her job and what needs to be done. She's always informative about what might or will happen. Very pleasant and easy to converse with. I am very happy to have retained her throughtout the years. She's helped me with two divorces. A DUI case that was plead down to reckless driving. She's currently helping me on another matter.

Poor follow up
We hired Angela for a semi complicated child custody case. She was extremely knowledgeable and offered great advice. At our first court apparance she was professional and helped calmed our nerves. However when it was time to schedule our next court case, Angela disappeared. We spent several monthd trying to reach her by phone, email and certified mail. We ended up hiring a new attorney to complete our case and Angela did refunded the rest of our retainer. If you are in a hurry to move your case along or like prompt communication Angela might not be the best fit for you, however she is knowledgeable in her field. I think she would greatly benefit from a office secratary because ignoring clients is beyond horrible practice.

Too busy to care
This lawyer is TOO busy to be a lawyer who cares. With her band, jewerly she has not done a thing for my case in over 2 months Even after about ten emails several phone calls and a certifyed letter sent. I have never gotten a bill in almost two years.
Response from Angela Lund-Logan December 26, 2013
I am perplexed by Mr. Wine's review. I do not know the exact date this review was posted as "almost two years ago" is all that is given. Two years ago from today is 12/26/11. Subsequent to this review, Mr. Wine asked me to continue handling his case and even apologized for his behavior. It was much, much later that I saw this scathing review. I feel I must address the inaccuracies and missing details from this review. The only reason I was still representing Mr. Wine at the time of this review was due to his refusal to allow the Judgment (order granting the divorce) to be signed by the Judge. The divorce hearing had occurred on June 7, 2011 and all of the issues resolved except for entry of the Judgment. Mr. Wine had received a bill prior to this review. I do not know why he would complain about not getting a bill as he wasn't making payments towards my services. Due to very unusual circumstances, my services were to be paid from the cash Mr. Wine was to receive as part of the divorce.
