Estate Planning

When you have worked hard in life to earn what you have, you want to make sure that the property you have built up goes to the right people when you are no longer here to enjoy it personally. We can help you use tools like wills and trusts to name your future beneficiaries and establish a distribution plan. Of equal importance, we can design powers of attorney and advance directives that spell out your wishes clearly so that you can take control of your future needs now.

Divorce & Family Law

Our attorneys understand the emotional impact of family law issues like divorce and child custody proceedings. We will strive to take on as much of the case as we can so that you can spend your time focusing on what is really important in your life. We represent Illinois residents involved with family law proceedings, including divorce, child custody, child support needs, and parentage actions.


Regardless of the legal issues you need to address, we will provide you with the fast, effective response you are looking for. We will help you understand the best steps to take to resolve your concerns as quickly and efficiently as possible.
