Thank you for visiting my site.  First of all, I want you, my potential clients, to know that I am dedicated to serving clients as effectively as possible.  I strive to live up to the core values of my firm: dignity, humility, and transparency.  I know that adoption and family law issues are deeply personal and highly emotional.  Therefore, I maintain the utmost confidentiality from the initial consultation onward.  I am a problem solver, empathetic listener, and trusted advocate.  I know what it takes to earn my clients' trust and to keep it.   


As an adoption and family law attorney, I am there for my clients to help them build, or rebuild, life as they know it.  In adoption cases, I walk through the process with my clients, and provide new direction when the unexpected happens.  In representing biological parents, I seek to provide legal knowledge, peace of mind, and reassurance as they make life-altering decisions.  In divorce or other family law issues, I always want what is best for my clients and their children, and I focus on the things that matter most, like stability, nurture, and financial support.  Don't let my soft side fool you though.  While I believe it's typically best to settle family matters outside of court, when it's necessary to go to bat for my clients, I am prepared to litigate firmly and strategically to fight for what is right under the law.   

Lastly, but absolutely not least, I am a wife, and a mother of two young boys.  I care deeply about my family and I understand and acknowledge how important my clients' families are to them.  My love of children is what inspired me to pursue a law career and advocate for them.  Therefore, I stay abreast of the laws on Adoption and Family Law in Illinois, and I advise my clients accordingly.  Simply put, I treat my clients as I would want to be treated by my attorney, and I believe that's what sets my firm apart.

Life is beautiful and wonderful, but sometimes busy, chaotic and messy.  When you need an adoption or family law attorney in your life, please give me a call at 630-717-2772.

Very truly yours, 

Christina Martell
