Family Law Legal Representation With Personal Advocacy

The Right Firm For Your Family Law Case

A divorce or custody case is often more complex than it appears on the surface. In most cases, either of these matters may require you to address a host of other legal issues. That’s why you need more than a divorce lawyer. You need a family law attorney.

At Gauthier Family Law, we are a full-service law firm guiding you throughout your family law proceedings. We devote our practice to Illinois family law, and attorney Michael Gauthier has been awarded and recognized by various legal associations for his advocacy and ethics.

We handle family law the right way. Call 847-816-7781 for a free initial consultation.
