We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

About Family Law Attorney Palatine:

Your Legal Journey

Family law covers a lot of ground from divorce to child custody each with its own set of challenges and emotional tolls. Our Palatine family lawyers are well versed in these issues and take a holistic approach to each case with compassion and understanding.

Divorce and Separation: Divorce brings about big life changes and uncertainty, especially when it involves complex asset division or child-related issues. A divorce lawyer is essential in navigating these complexities to ensure all legal procedures are properly followed. Here’s how we can help:

  • Asset Protection: Fear of losing big assets is a common fear in divorces, especially high asset cases. We work to protect your investments and properties you brought into the marriage with, so you get a fair share.
  • Child Custody and Parenting Time: Your children are a priority. Our lawyers will work to get custody arrangements that are in the best interest of your children and maximize your parenting time. This delicate balance requires not just legal knowledge but a deep understanding of your family’s unique needs. In cases of a child custody dispute, choosing an experienced legal team is crucial to ensure every decision made is in the best interest of your children and their future.

Success Story: Client Focused: Meet Sarah, a Palatine mom of two who was facing the possibility of losing primary custody to her ex-husband. Sarah was overwhelmed, worried about the impact on her children and their future. We stepped in to mediate, using collaborative law techniques to address the concerns of both parents. Through mediation, we not only preserved Sarah’s custody rights but also improved the co-parenting relationship, reducing future conflict and providing stability for the children.

Post-Divorce Modifications: Life doesn’t stop after a divorce decree is entered. Changes in jobs, relocation, or changes in a child’s needs may require changes to custody or support orders. We help clients:

  • Request changes to reflect new circumstances.
  • Enforce existing orders to ensure ongoing compliance.
  • Discontinue orders when they are no longer serving their purpose.

Areas We Cover:

  • Alimony and spousal support
  • Asset and debt division
  • Child support and custody
  • Parental rights and responsibilities
  • Modifications and enforcement of orders

Mediation and Conflict Resolution: We believe in the power of mediation to resolve disputes quickly. By creating a collaborative atmosphere we often help clients find common ground on issues like spousal support and property division that might otherwise turn into lengthy court battles.

Whether you’re facing a family law challenge from the uncertainty of a contested divorce to post-divorce modifications, our Palatine family law attorneys are here to help. We want to minimize stress for you and your children and get you the representation you need to get the best result.
