Just a few of the main assets of our law firm are:

  • Communication: We will return all phone calls and emails promptly, and consult with you frequently to make sure you understand each step of your legal proceeding. We will send you a monthly, itemized statement of account so you are always informed about costs.
  • Positive reputation in the legal community: Perhaps the best illustration of our abilities is our reputation among our colleagues. A large number of our clients are referred to us by other attorneys and judges. Lois Kulinsky is a court-approved guardian ad litem in Cook and Lake counties and has been included in Who’s Who in American Law. From 2015 through present, she was named one of the 10 Best Family Law Attorneys for Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys.

  • Cost-effectiveness: We offer reasonable rates and work as a team to maximize every dollar. New clients are welcome to a free, half-hour initial consultation. After payment of a retainer, fees can be paid on an installment plan. Credit cards are accepted.

Our lawyers also believe strongly in educating everyone, not just our clients, about important legal matters. Even if you do not become one of our clients, we encourage you to read our articles and FAQs.
