Summary

Daniel J. Kollias' combination of experience in the real world and in the courtroom sets him apart from other attorneys. He represents clients with the goal of finding practical solutions to complex problems. Prior to starting his firm, Dan successfully owned and managed a restaurant and bar in Elmhurst for a few years before returning to the practice of law. He understands business from the perspectives of both the entrepreneur and the advocate.

Dan is at home both in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. Dan gained extensive in-court experience as a prosecutor in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. While there, he prosecuted countless juvenile abuse and neglect cases, and briefed and argued cases in the Appellate Court. Since 2003, he has been in private practice, focusing on family law, business planning, and estate planning.

In the field of family law, he has represented thousands of clients in cases involving divorce, allocation of parental rights, relocation, support, maintenance, business valuation, and complex property division. Dan is also well-versed in the various unique family issues which arise when one or both parties are military servicemembers, whether on active duty or in the reserves. Dan is also certified as a guardian ad litem. He is often appointed to investigate and report to the court regarding the best interests of the children in contested cases.

In the field of business planning, Dan advises clients regarding business structure, organization, succession planning, operating agreements, purchase, and sale. In the field of estate planning, Dan counsels clients on how to ensure that they and their loved ones are provided for in the event of incapacity or death, and how to minimize the effects of the estate tax. He prepares wills, trusts, and powers of attorney.
