Before moving into private practice, I was a Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney. As a prosecutor, I successfully upheld convictions of murder, home invasion, and burglary. I spent also two years in the Juvenile Division where I worked closely with the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS), the Office of the Public Guardian, and the Public Defender to find permanent solutions for Illinois families involved in suspected child abuse, neglect, and/or dependency.
In addition to my professional experience, I have a unique insight into the hardships of family law because I once sat on the other side of the attorney-client table when I had to go to court in order to gain custody of my son. This personal experience allows me to understand the feelings of my clients experience. I understand what it is like to be scared, and I do my best to help clients through these most difficult times.
