They are definitely the best at what they do
Their expertise on family law is impeccable. I would not think twice about having her firm on my side in any battle. She is a fierce litigator with a calming influence. But trust me, she will battle for you if she has to .. I don't believe there is a better firm in Chicago to represent you.. Thanks again Tanya. I really appreciate all your help. ...... Thanks again, you brought a certain confidence to my side I don't believe I would have had.
Finding legal services is challenging
Finding legal services is challenging for first timers without connections, but Tanya made it easy. She brings a people-focused approach to an industry that sorely needs it. When I called other lawyers before Tanya, I felt nervous that they were focused on the money. But Tanya was 1) slightly less expensive than the others and 2) more upfront about her charges. She even noted that if she spent a little more time than initially discussed, she wouldn't nickel and dime me on paying for small amounts of extra time. That was quite refreshing and the first time I'd heard it from an attorney! Professionally, she was friendly, easy to reach, and happy to talk me through things every step of the way. It was fantastic to find someone who was trustworthy and kind (not the first adjectives that roll off the tongue when talking about lawyers). Net - A+ experience and strongly recommend for people who have limited experience with the law/lawyers (or anyone else for that matter).
Very detail oriented
Tanya is very detail oriented and puts a tremendous amount of effort in her work. She was always available to answer questions and was willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. I would recommend Tanya for anyone in need of a good attorney.
As Tanya's opposing counsel, she was thorough and diligent in representing her client's interests.
Strong Client Advocate
Strong Client Advocate and Translator of Legalese. Tanya helps her clients break through the clutter of legal jargon and contingencies by explaining what is happening in logical, plain wording. I could tell throughout my experience working with her that she was passionate about protecting my interests and was always ready to inform me of the risks of any decisions I was making. She was greatly helpful in ironing out an agreement that met everyone’s needs – which is what we all hope for with challenging legal situations.
Smart and detail oriented
Smart and detail-oriented. She will put in the time required to get the best possible outcome. Tanya was always available to answer questions and kept me informed every step of the way. She gave excellent advice and was able to deliver satisfactory results. She is very thorough and detail-oriented.

ConsultationS – In Person, Zoom, or phone
As a female Chicago divorce attorney, I am often asked if I represent both men and women. Yes, I am proud to represent both men and women. The most important attributes in a family law attorney are honesty, really listening, knowledge and experience, caring about the client’s goals, and putting the client’s interests before the attorney’s interests.
Some attorneys bulldoze over their client’s reasonable requests and goals. Perhaps it is due ego or a lack of compassion on the part of some attorneys. I am very mindful and respectful that it is the client’s life, finances and children that are at issue in the case. I help my clients thrive.

ALIMONY & MAINTENANCE
In Chicago divorce cases, courts may award maintenance (formerly known as “alimony”) to a spouse who has insufficient income to cover his or her reasonable and necessary expenses. Learn about the 14 factors that influence maintenance amount and duration.
Property division in a divorce requires determining marital versus non-marital property. All property must be classified before a divorce can be finalized.
The allocation of parental responsibilities is the legal phrase in Illinois for child custody and visitation.
Child support is the amount of money that a non-custodial parent must pay the custodial parent to cover expenses for his or her minor child. Child support covers basic needs such as food, clothing and housing, and well as costs for extracurricular activities, transportation, medical expenses, private school and day care.
A lot of dads today are very involved in caring for their children. When the parents are unmarried, Illinois law presumes that the mother has sole allocation of parental responsibilities (“child custody”). Unmarried fathers need a court order to overcome the presumption that the mother of the child has sole custody.

High-net-worth divorces may have more options available than a “typical” divorce. The Witt Law Firm frequently represents parties in high-net-worth divorces in Chicago. There are unique aspects to high-net-worth divorces.
Cryptocurrency has been the fastest growing asset class since Bitcoin was created in 2009. For some parties to a Chicago divorce, tracing and valuing digital assets may be necessary in pursuing a fair settlement.
