When searching for a lawyer to represent them in a divorce proceeding, many people are concerned about finding an attorney who will aggressively push for their best interests. My experience has shown that negotiation skills are infinitely more valuable in a legal representative than aggression.
From the office of Jerald A. Kessler, Attorney and Mediator, in Libertyville, Illinois, I understand that effective representation is not synonymous with mindless aggression. In fact, divorce cases are resolved more efficiently and cost-effectively through mediation and negotiation than they are through aggressive litigation.
Some divorce issues are ongoing. Unfortunately, resolving divorce issues does not guarantee they will remain settled. My mediation training is equally effective in resolving issues regarding enforcement of court orders, changes to child support, custody or visitation, or other post-divorce needs.

A Lake County Child Custody Lawyer Who Takes A Child-First Approach
I provide guidance to clients interested in making the divorce process work for them rather than against them. My professional mediation services help families resolve the full spectrum of issues that must be addressed in divorce, including:
- Property division
- Debt allocation
- Child custody disputes
- Child support
- Parenting plans
- Cohabitation agreements
- Same-sex partners
My objective is to develop solutions that both parties can agree to, thus preventing the need to go to trial. In accomplishing that, you keep control over the decisions that are made rather than leave them in the hands of a family court judge.
