Extremely caring and professional! Reese was very attentive to my needs. I have spoken to multiple attorneys about my case, which was quite complex. She was the only one that seemed to have constructive advice and spent time taking me through my options and answering my questions. Her staff was also excellent, and I always felt welcome and important. Very highly recommended!!! -Nigel



Legally ending a marriage is a process that takes time, and there are many important steps that you will need to navigate. We can help you file or respond to a divorce petition and gather the information and documents you will need throughout the process. We will also help you decide on the most appropriate divorce resolution method depending on whether you are expecting an amicable or contested divorce. Throughout the divorce process, we will represent you in negotiations or litigation to help you achieve your desired outcomes regarding property division and child custody.

Child Custody

Child Custody

Illinois custody laws have recently changed to reflect a preference for arrangements in which parents share important parental responsibilities. Even with these changes, it is important that you have a plan for protecting your children’s interests and managing co-parenting duties with your former spouse. We can help you negotiate a parenting agreement or resolve your custody dispute through litigation.

Parenting Time

Parenting Time

For many parents, protecting quality time with their children is an important priority during the divorce process. We will help you work toward a parenting plan and schedule that fits your lifestyle and your children’s routines, and allows you to maintain a strong relationship with your kids. We also help with related details like plans for transportation, exchanges, and sharing holidays.

Division of Assets and Debts

You and your spouse will need to fairly divide all of your marital assets and debts as part of your divorce resolution. This can include a wide range of properties and assets like your home, bank accounts, investments, retirement savings, businesses, and other valuable items, as well as loan obligations and credit card debt. We can help you understand your options for achieving a fair share of the marital estate through negotiation with your spouse or litigation in court.

Estate Planning

Estate planning provides many benefits for your remaining years and the future of your family, and it is something you can start at any stage of your life. We can work with you to draft a will and establish trusts to manage your assets and pass them on to your loved ones and other beneficiaries. We can also help you set up powers of attorney for your property and health care, ensuring that someone you trust has the authority to make decisions in your name when you are unable to do so yourself.
