Our Mission Statement

  • We are a divorce law firm that gets it.
  • We recognize that divorce often takes too long and costs too much, and we are doing something about it. We focus on keeping our clients’ divorces simple, affordable, and out of court.
  • We stand in the forefront of the settlement approach to divorce, and we encourage our colleagues to join us. This is what we value, it is who we are, and it is where we remain headed.

We make quick settlements a priority.

We practice law differently. We use a fresh approach – a pain saving approach.

70 years of combined legal experience counts much more than it costs 

Welcome to our website. The information provided is honest, accurate and as straight-forward as we could make it. We hope you will find it to be beneficial.

We welcome hearing from you and we invite your questions. There is no obligation. No one will ever know that we spoke or what we discussed. Everything you say is privileged, confidential, and completely classified. We do not maintain a mailing list and will not contact you unless you ask us to.

Family Law Attorneys

Why should you believe that two strangers (especially when they are divorce lawyers) would go out of their way to charge you less?

The answer is simple:

It is good for business, that’s why. What helps you helps us.

Our client referrals more than make up for the smaller fees. Our clients love the non-court approach, and we love having happy clients.


Calling us is easy. Ask for Richard or Kari (Oak Brook 630-928-0600), or email us at jk@illinoislegal.com or kc@illinoislegal.com.

If we are in court or in a meeting when you call, one of us will personally get back to you as quickly as possible. We are extremely discreet with callbacks and reply emails. Just leave your name and a secure email address or personal cell phone number.

Richard and Kari are staunch advocates of the non-court approach to divorce, and are also active and seasoned litigators with over 70 years of combined trial experience in the Illinois divorce courts of Cook, DuPage, and Will counties.
