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.

I'm so thankful that I found Jennifer and her awesome team to help me with my divorce! It was incredibly stressful and scary to go through this process, especially with two little ones, but she has given me the support and confidence that I need. She is extremely intelligent, level-headed, supportive, and reasonable! I was anxious in the beginning thinking that I would have to go to court, but she gave me the peace of mind that I needed to get thru it and not be anxious. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through this difficult process. I…
She is a nice lawyer. She helped me to fix my passport issue among other things, including family problems.
Initially, I'd thought to navigate through troubled waters on my own in the divorce process due to the cost. I hadn't before needed representation in any court case, and, not being familiar with the costs involved in having a lawyer, I was worried about moving forward with one. My fear was the expense. I felt comfortable with Jennifer Ward from the moment I first spoke with her - contacting her to set up a consultation costs you nothing. In the end, the retainer and fees spent to end my case on a high note were worth every penny. They sent…
As with most family law issues emotions were running very high and I needed legal help with my divorce and to reach my goals for parenting time with my children.

Jennifer Ward and the lawyers at WARD FAMILY LAW were the perfect attorneys for me in a very complex and challenging child custody case. This was an intensely painful, frustrating and contentious relationship with the father throughout the months it took to resolve parenting time. Jennifer was patient, affirming, honest, realistic, and available at every turn. She explained the various court actions and helped me balance the risks and benefits of each move. Her advice was right on. After countless court dates, I got more than I could have ever imagined or dreamed of. Words can't express the gratitude I…
Jennifer Ward of WARD FAMILY LAW made me feel safe and comfortable, but most importantly heard. Her whole legal team was professional and communicated well. Fast responding when I had questions... I feel like they really understood my concerns and backed me up and that felt good! I would recommend her to anyone looking for support through the divorce process.
I typically do not do reviews but after my experience interviewing lawyer after lawyer, I felt compelled to share my experience. So many offer a “free consultation” but don’t be fooled. Often this is just to get you in their office and start charging. I was referred to Jennifer by a friend and didn’t go right away. When I felt like I had exhausted all my options I called Jennifer for her free initial consultation - which was actually free - she took the time to listen to all the facts of my case, my concerns, what outcome I was…
Highly recommended. I know Jennifer Ward personally and professionally - she has an apt ability to provide meaningful insight and clarity into complex issues. I have and will continue to recommend her services to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Jennifer was very helpful, professional and gave me very sound advice. The process was quick because she filed everything in a timely manner. I'm very happy with how she represented me.
Working with Jennifer was a smooth and seamless process. I was most impressed with her negotiation skills, attention to detail, and knowledge of the law. I highly recommend WARD FAMILY LAW to anyone looking for a skilled attorney.
