Evan Compton, Divorce & Family Law Attorney

Evan Compton is a partner at Stern Perkoski Mendez.

Evan discovered family law through his interest in adoption. His passion for legal research and family law has made him a fierce and thorough advocate. Due to his experience and training, Evan is able to sympathetically and carefully guide families through their domestic relations matters.

Evan’s focus in every case is seeking a resolution that best suits the needs of his clients—and ensuring that each client is given every bit of attention that their case deserves.

Despite working throughout his law school education, Evan found time to give back to the community through the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, where he assisted in the investigation of child abuse and child welfare cases. Evan also was also an extern with the Chicago Legal Clinic’s Domestic Relation Division.
