Summary

Experience, integrity and flexibility form the backbone of my client oriented practice in Cook and DuPage Counties. My twelve years of negotiating, mediating, trials and appeals, inform my opinion of your case, and from our initial consultation onward, you always receive an honest assessment of the likely outcome. I strive for innovative solutions to your issues, minimizing expense and grief, strategizing to let you retain control over the results, while always being ready to "go all the way". Throughout, I will always be accessible to you and bill you fairly, tailoring payment options to your circumstances. About Me: I am an experienced Chicagoland area family law mediator and litigator and immigration law practitioner. I pride myself on my professionalism and availability to my clients, who can always contact me directly. I maximize use of technology to save you time and money. I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Psychology and Political Science, and completed my Juris Doctor degree at the DePaul University College of Law in 2000. Since then, I have been practicing law, handling many negotiations, litigating intensive family law cases, as well as representing immigration clients. I have twelve years experience in civil litigation, mainly in areas of family law and domestic violence, and related areas in Cook, DuPage and Kane Counties in Illinois. For over six years, I have practiced immigration law, representing individual and business clients locally in DuPage and Cook Counties, throughout Illinois and world-wide. I have been mediating conflicts for over a decade. I mediate out of my offices in DuPage and Chicago, but also have by appointment location in Lincoln Park and Lincoln Square in Chicago; near O'Hare International Airport in Chicago; Skokie; Deerfield; Lake Forest; and Schaumburg. I have represented clients in contested divorce and related litigation, including dissolution of civil union; fa
