McHenry County Illinois Family and Probate Laywer
Call Us To Discuss Your Case (815) 444-9791
Anytime you have to contact your attorney is a critical time, especially when it comes to family issues. Good communication between you and your attorney is essential. I serve my clients with the utmost courtesy and respect, listening to their concerns. I use my almost twenty years of legal experience and knowledge of different client outcomes to design solutions suited to each client’s individual needs. I am accessible to my clients, responding promptly to their telephone calls and e-mail and taking the time to meet with all clients personally.
I focus on legal issues that affect the family, any kind of family, be it traditional, same sex, or step-family. I represent parents, children, spouses, adult and minor children, disabled adult, executors and beneficiaries in McHenry County, Illinois.
In order to further serve our clients, I offer different types of representation. We can discuss which type of representation suits you, your situation, and your budget.
Traditional Type (Full Representation)
I file my appearance, prepare all of the documentation, responses, correspondence, and attend all court dates for everything that is at issue.
Limited Scope Representation
I do the above for only certain issues. For example, you wish to represent yourself on the visitation issues but wish for me to represent you on the child support issue.
I review and advise you on documents and options, help you prepare for hearings, but I do not file an appearance or go to court for you. With this option, you pay an hourly rate.
