Legal issues involving family matters are often some of the most difficult to solve on your own. If you are going through a divorce, child custody dispute, or another legal concern involving family law, having a skilled lawyer on your side is essential.

Family Law Attorney Serving Naperville, Aurora, Downers Grove, and the Surrounding Areas

Effectively handling family law concerns takes a precise combination of assertiveness, empathy, and tact. Not only is Illinois family law constantly changing, family law issues often involve sensitive subject matter that hits close to home. This is why it is important to work with an attorney who has the legal experience necessary to bring a compelling claim as well as the compassion to handle the situation appropriately.

As a general rule, I typically try to avoid litigation and solve family law concerns outside of the courtroom. This reduces the stress on both parties. However, I am fully aware that some cases require litigation. Whatever it takes, protecting my client's best interests and the best interests of his or her children is my top priority.
