When you need a family law attorney, you need a problem solver, a peacemaker, and a fierce fighter all in one. It’s not enough to settle for someone who practices family law on the side. Your family deserves a trusted and knowledgable family law attorney in Chicago.
If you’ve never hired a family law attorney before, how can you tell who’s the for you? First, look for lawyers with the right experience, connections, and knowledge for your case. Then, be sure to book consultation appointments to choose the right lawyer for you.
Naturally, one of the first things clients consider when hiring an attorney is whether or not the lawyer has experience. This is especially true when important decisions are on the line, which is often the case in family law. It’s important not just to consider someone’s legal experience, but how much time they have spent in family law specifically.
As the name suggests, the attorneys at WARD FAMILY LAW, LLC, focus solely on this area of the law. We bring decades of family law experience into every mediation, negotiation, and court session. Because we have seen it all, we know our ways around some of the most challenging family law issues.
If you were headed into surgery, wouldn’t you want the surgeon that all the medical professionals in the area would pick? Apply that same logic when you look for an experienced and skilled family law attorney in Chicago. Lawyers with deep ties in the community and respect from their peers have often earned that place by winning cases just like yours.
At WARD FAMILY LAW, LLC, our attorneys are pillars within the legal community and broader Chicago community. For example, Jennifer R.

Family law is a broad area of law with many sub-specialties underneath it. While a family law attorney is qualified to handle anything under this umbrella, it’s important to consider hiring an attorney with specific expertise in the types of cases that apply to your situation. At WARD FAMILY LAW, LLC, we specialize in many areas of family law, including several types of divorce, child custody, prenuptial agreements, and domestic abuse cases.
While your attorney’s experience, connections, and knowledge are all vital to the success of your case, they are not the only factors that matter. It’s important for you and your lawyer to get along so that you can trust your attorney and the advice they give you. This mutual trust gives you the confidence you need to make important legal decisions.

Jennifer is a strategic thinker with a remarkable ability to anticipate and address potential challenges. Her attention to detail and thorough preparation were evident in every aspect of my paternity case. This meticulous approach translated into a successful resolution of establishing the father-child relationship and financial responsibility that comes with that. I felt well-represented both inside and outside the zoom courtroom.
I was referred to the firm for their expertise in handling complex business divisions during divorce proceedings. As someone entangled in a high-stakes divorce involving substantial business assets, I can attest to their unparalleled skill, strategic acumen, and unwavering commitment to securing the best possible outcome for their clients. From the business valuation to the creative distribution, thank you.
If you own a business or an interest in a business or stock options (or anything of real value related to a business) then you need to make sure that your divorce attorney knows what they’re doing. My first attorney had no idea and so I had to start over finding the right team that had extensive family law and divorce experience that I needed in Chicago. Their deep understanding of corporate structures, financial statements, and tax implications showcased a level of competence that instilled confidence throughout the entire process. They collaborated seamlessly with financial experts, forensic accountants, and other…
The firm’s negotiation skills were instrumental in reaching a favorable settlement that protected my financial interests while mitigating the emotional toll often associated with divorce proceedings. Enough said. Ward family law has the best team of experienced lawyers to get you what you want and deserve.
For anyone facing the challenging intersection of divorce and complex business matters, I wholeheartedly recommend Jennifer and Emily as legal eagles who goes above and beyond to safeguard their clients' interests.
Just as their law firm philosophy stated, Jennifer and Emily consistently maintained an open line of communication, promptly responding to my emails and keeping me informed at every step of the legal divorce process. This transparent approach not only fostered trust but also allowed me to actively participate in my case, making informed decisions with confidence.
What truly sets them apart from the other matrimonial lawyers is their keen attention to detail. They approached our unique situation with a meticulous eye, taking the time to understand our needs and concerns in getting married. The resulting prenuptial agreement felt tailor-made, a testament to that clear commitment to delivering personalized legal solutions.
My entire marriage was reactive. The proactive approach proposed by Jennifer alleviated any apprehensions I had, fostering trust in her team’s family law expertise and being able to understand her client’s needs. In the courtroom, the senior legal associate, Emily, demonstrated a command of legal strategy woven in with facts unique to my situation. The case was settled, but not without some court battles to get us there. Thank you for the fight when I needed it and the negotiation of settlement when it was time.
Zoom courtroom presence is odd, to say the least. Somehow, Emily was able to show herself as both assertive and composed in a zoom setting, instilling confidence that my interests were being fiercely defended. Divorce isn’t fun, but I can tell you it’s nice to have the right people on your side during the process. Ward family law did that for me.
I recently had the privilege of working with Jennifer - she has to be one of the most outstanding legal professionals in Chicago. I don’t write reviews often, but I am compelled to share my experience with others seeking top-notch representation during a divorce. I was referred to her - she is renowned for her expertise and dedication to families, which proved her to be an invaluable ally during a challenging period in my life that had me at risk of losing my kids. She demonstrated a profound understanding of the intricacies of divorce law. Her comprehensive knowledge of the…
