The Family Law Firm That Puts You First

Biography

After graduating with honors from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana with Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater, Stacy became a professional actress and toured the country with a musical theater troupe.  Stacy later returned to Chicago to attend law school with a Family Law Fellowship at DePaul University, where she received her Juris Doctor in 2004. She has since practiced in and around Chicagoland exclusively in the area of family law and has handled a large number of contested and uncontested matters including complex, high net-worth divorces involving the classification and valuation of marital and non-marital assets, custody and visitation disputes, orders of protection and restraining orders, and paternity matters. Stacy received a certificate in Divorce Mediation from Northwestern University and expended her practice to serve as a mediator in all types of family law cases. Stacy encourages her clients to explore this method of conflict resolution to empower the individual by becoming more involved in determining the outcome of his or her case. Stacy has been repeatedly recognized as an Emerging Lawyer by Leading Lawyers and named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine. She currently serves on the DePaul University Family Law Advisory Board, is frequently asked to share her expertise with professional groups, and continues to pursue her love of performing through her participation in the Chicago Bar Association’s annual Bar Show.
