Chicago Family Law Attorneys

Nottage and Ward, LLP

Rational. Progressive. On Your Side.

Many law firms take a "Walmart" approach to their practice, taking cases of all kinds, from personal injury to divorce to bankruptcy and beyond. At Nottage and Ward, LLP, we take an entirely different approach. For over a quarter century, we have devoted our entire practice solely to family law. It is our belief that by focusing on the legal arena we are most passionate about, we can best serve the needs of our clients. Our attorneys have chosen to concentrate on family law because it deals with matters of the heart, including civil unions, adoption, allocation of parental responsibilities, divorce, and more. Clients are often in a vulnerable place when they seek us out, and we use our compassion and legal knowledge to assure them that they are in good, competent hands. Nottage and Ward, LLP, is a large enough firm to service all your family law needs, but small enough to maintain an intimate and personal relationship with you.

For quality legal representation in all areas of family law, call (312) 332-2915 for an in-depth consultation. We practice in Cook, DuPage, Lake, and McHenry County.

Winning Your Trust

Before we win a case, we win the client's trust. We begin by shifting loyalties from the spouse to us. The old roles of the relationship no longer apply. It's a new game and the rules of engagement require battle-tested tactics and an exit strategy.

How we can help


These two attorneys, who finish each other's sentences, laugh at each

5 Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for

Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for in a very complicated, emotional matter. She has continuously looked out for my best interest and the best interest of my son. She is always prompt in getting back to me and in keeping me well informed about my case.
