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.
Services Nottage and Ward, LLP, Provides
Our seasoned Chicago legal team services clients in the following areas:
- Stepparent adoption
- Divorce (all facets)
- Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
- Post-decree modifications and enforcement

Matters of family law can be wrought with emotion and a very trying time for all involved. Having skilled legal representation can give you the peace of mind you need to make the right decisions regarding your family’s future.
Our clients walk through the doors knowing their lives are about to change. All they know is this is the beginning.
But there is so much they don't understand. Especially how it will end.
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.
These two attorneys, who finish each other's sentences, laugh at each
other's jokes, and have a reputation for toughness and team-lawyering,
have built a dynamic divorce practice in less than three years.
