Niles Divorce Lawyer
Experienced Family Law Attorney
When you start your career as a Legal Aid attorney, you learn a few important lessons early on:
- Treat every client with the same high standards of legal care and service
- Have compassion and respect
At the Law Offices of Janice L. Berman, we haven’t forgotten those lessons. We are a general practice law firm with an emphasis on family law. We provide families and individuals in Chicago, Illinois, and surrounding suburbs with experienced, quality legal services delivered with compassion and respect.
We offer a flat fee for an uncontested divorce. When couples agree, this can be a quick and cost-effective option. We facilitate the process and advise clients about the short- and long-term consequences of their decisions.
Cook County Child Custody & Support Lawyer
Janice Berman is a Niles family attorney who works with both men and women who have any type of family law issue, from pre decree proceedings to post decree changes including, but not limited to, child custody, support, maintenance, paternity, property division, and all areas of divorce. From a prenuptial agreement to a post-divorce modification, we handle every aspect of family law. Many of our family law clients have related issues, such as a real estate closing or estate planning, and we handle those as well. Moreover, we encourage our clients to contact us regarding any legal matter they are faced with and even if it is a matter we do not handle, we will make every effort to locate an attorney or provider that can assist them.
Our clients range from CEOs of major corporations to those barely existing at a poverty level income and everyone in between. Our clients vary because we do not take a cookie-cutter approach to divorce and treat each client as an individual with unique circumstances, needs and goals.
“Litigation costs money. If we can make a divorce as painless and smooth as possible, everyone benefits.” — Attorney Janice Berman
