Family Law


Divorce impacts every individual in a unique and personal way.  We welcome and encourage you to speak with the Chicago family law attorneys here at Beermann in a discrete, confidential consultation. In reviewing and discussing your expectations and goals, as well as what your rights and obligations may be in divorce, we seek to work with each client to select the right path for you and your family.  Whether it is a litigated divorce or a collaborative approach, the first step is to wholly understand the multitude of options available to you. 

Every family’s circumstances are different going into a divorce, so it is imperative to have a clear understanding of what to expect from a family law attorney in what can seem like an overwhelming and confusing process.

As in any relationship, having good communication and feeling comfortable with your attorney is critical.  Almost every client has a multitude of questions and there will be a degree of uncertainty going into the process, so having clarity in what to expect and how as a team, we plan to help you achieve your goals is the most important first step. Our objective is that you leave the initial consultation feeling empowered in having gained knowledge of this process and hopeful as you move forward with the next phase of your life.

Each experienced Chicago family law attorney at Beermann is highly-regarded by judges and fellow Chicago family law attorneys and comprises one of the largest matrimonial law firms in both Chicago and Illinois.
