I am a divorce attorney with a very strong financial background as a CPA with a LLM which is a Master of Tax Law degree. I am Partner at the firm Harrison & Held, LLP and our offices in downtown Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. I am consistently recognized as one of the best family lawyers in Illinois by my peers and have been named as an Illinois Super Lawyer and recognized by the Leading Lawyers Network every year since 2009. I am proud to have been selected by my peers for inclusion in the 21st Edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the practice area of Family Law. I am a Fellow in the prestigious American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, which is a select national group of attorneys acknowledged as prominent family law practitioners. According to the Martindale-Hubbell® Lawyer Rating System, I have received the highest rating, which denotes “adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities.” My training in divorce includes traditional, collaborative and mediation divorce. My philosophy is that no two cases and no two clients are alike - “one size does not fit all” so each case is approached differently. I help my clients make smart decisions at very difficult and vulnerable times. I am proud of the excellent reviews that I regularly receive from my clients and am known to combine my passion, compassion and advocacy to obtain winning results in and out of the courtroom.
