In my 29-year law career I have come to understand that there are two ways to approach the practice of law: as a warrior or as a healer. I first strive to heal my client's situation if at all possible, and if not, to aggressively represent my client's interests at trial.
As an experienced Chicago Family Law Lawyer, I have practiced law in Illinois since 1986 and in Wisconsin since 1992. I am a former assistant state's attorney in Lake County, Illinois and am licensed to practice in the federal courts in the Northeast District of Illinois. I have also been a licensed Illinois arbitrator for 24 years.
I am an experienced litigator in family law, including dissolution of marriage, custody, child support and visitation enforcement. I believe that my experience has taught me to evaluate a case fairly and impartially, allowing to advise my client of the strengths and weaknesses of their cases.
