Divorce


By Your Side During a Difficult Time

Family strife is never pleasant. When arguments and disputes arise as to whether a marriage should endure, what the future will look like, and how parent-child relationships will evolve, it is almost always emotionally, psychologically, and financially taxing.

If you and your family are going through the difficult transition of divorce, facing all of the emotionally charged and financially complex matters that can be a part of that process, you need compassionate counsel and experienced guidance. You need to have all of your questions answered, your concerns addressed, and your peace of mind restored.

You need to know that you are not alone during this challenging time.

Divorce Involves Intense Emotions But Requires Clear Thinking

As an experienced Chicago divorce attorney, I understand the unique dynamics involved when a family is moving in separate directions. Divorce is not a business transaction or an abstraction, and it’s not just a lawsuit; it is a process that involves real people with real emotions. Ensuring that those emotions do not obscure clear thinking about the issues, or stand in the way of a positive resolution, is one of my key objectives as your lawyer.

While I will zealously protect the rights of my clients and the well-being of any children involved, I also seek to resolve disputes in a manner that reduces acrimony rather than adds to it. In addition to representing clients in divorce proceedings, I also have significant experience as a certified divorce and relationship mediator; experience that promotes the practical, problem-solving approach that serves my clients well.

I provide compassionate and assertive representation in all matters relating to divorce and separation, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support
  • Visitation and Parenting Time
  • Pet custody and care
  • Parental Relocation
  • Property Valuation and Distribution
  • Annulments
