oak-park-illinoisOak Park IL, located immediately west of Chicago, is known around the world as the home of illustrious American novelist and short-story writer Ernest Hemingway, Prairie School architect Frank Lloyd Wright and Tarzan-creator Edgar Rice Burroughs. Our law office, which is known for effectively pursuing cooperative, out-of-court divorce settlements, serves a wide area of Chicago’s western suburbs, including Oak Park.

We are trained, experienced, and certified divorce mediators, trained collaborative law practitioners, and are very active in the development of cooperative divorce law, which is Illinois’ newest settlement alternative to divorce court. Cooperative divorce law often combines the best of both divorce mediation and collaborative law.
