Our Practice

Practicing law with transparency and clear communication is a core part of who we are. By understanding each of our clients’ unique needs, we can provide a tailored approach to their cases. We want the best possible results for you and your family, so we will explore all possible options—from attorney-assisted mediation and negotiated settlements to litigation—to find a strategy that you can feel confident with.

During the case, we do our best to be accessible at all times. We know that things can change quickly during a case, as new information commonly surfaces during the legal process. That means we continuously review our strategy with our clients and adjust it as needed. We like to think of this as common sense. It’s a shame that common sense isn’t more common.

Why Stern Perkoski Mendez?

The short answer is: client engagement. We listen to our clients’ needs and care about what their lives will be like after the divorce. It’s easy to get caught up in emotions of a family law case, but the reality is that the financial and emotional costs of over-litigation can leave clients in a worse place than when they started. As our clients’ advocates, we believe a good outcome also means a good life at the end of the case.  We believe it’s what you should look for in your Lake Forest divorce lawyer.

“Nancy’s confident demeanor was very important in the early stages of my separation. She patiently explained my rights, allowing me to make my decisions with a clear frame of mind.”
