Mokena Child Custody Family Law Lawyer


I did not always want to be a lawyer. My family is comprised of teachers and professors, so I followed in those footsteps.

But soon after having my first child I was dragged through the courts in a highly contentious custody matter. Years of filings and appearances in courts in two different states caused me to understand that no lawyer could advocate on my behalf like I could.

So I went to law school on a part-time basis. My family law professor was the Honorable Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, someone I admire deeply. Most students took family law classes because the area of law is something that could be tested on a Bar Exam. I took it because it was my life. And because of my extensive background in design and technology, I also excelled in evidence class. My goal was to absorb as much as I could so I could protect myself and my child.

I am now an attorney who can understand your family law case because I have been there. I have experienced it. Plus, because of my expertise in graphics, I can help prepare and present digital evidence to support your cause.

A friend says I have more degrees than a thermometer. I tell people I love to learn. Let me use my knowledge to help you.
