Evanston Divorce Lawyer

Proudly Serving the Evanston Community

Stern Perkoski Mendez is a boutique divorce and family law firm located in downtown Evanston. We are proud to serve not only Evanston, but also Chicago and its northern suburbs. The great thing about working in Evanston is the sense of community. Our friends, family and colleagues live in Evanston, own local businesses, and have graduated from Evanston Township High School or Northwestern University. Since we understand the concerns of Evanston families, we can provide you the legal representation you should expect from your Evanston divorce lawyer.

Our Philosophy

We understand how difficult the start of a family law case can be. No one plans on retaining a divorce attorney to handle their personal matters. Clients often are sad, confused, angry, or just eager to wrap everything up as quickly as possible. There’s a lot of information available online, but it’s hard to figure out what matters and what doesn’t.

As your divorce lawyer, our job is simple: we provide guidance and answers. We tailor our legal representation to meet your needs, so you can be sure you are getting just the right amount of legal assistance. If your case is amicable, we’ll discuss the benefits of mediation and out-of-court negotiation. If your case is headed to court, we’ll let you know early on and explain all of your options—as well as our strategy for obtaining the best possible outcome. During times of uncertainty, it’s important that we empower our clients, too.

What Makes Us Different?

The short answer is plenty. Our goal is to make the legal process transparent for our clients, and clearly communicate each step of the way.  We don’t like surprises, so we don’t like surprising our clients large bills or extra litigation. That’s not the way family law should be practiced and that’s not the way we practice.  We take the time to learn our client’s top priorities, then help create the best personalized plan for them and their family.  It’s what you deserve from your Evanston divorce lawyer.
