Chicago Divorce Lawyer - Kevin R. Johnson

Let’s meet on Zoom for an ‘analysis’ – a confidential discussion of your facts, your rights, your obligations, and how Illinois law provides you with options and alternatives.
205 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 810
Chicago, Illinois  60601
“Chicago Divorce Lawyers near me?”
You may find it helpful to call me at

So you’ve got some trouble, and you’re looking for a divorce attorney, or “a family law attorney,” as we like to call it.  It’s also possible you’re in a conflict about children, their custody and care, and there’s no marriage involved at all.
I would like to talk with you, if you live in Cook County, Illinois, or if your children are here, the other parent is here, or there’s already a court case started here in Cook County.
I start by meeting with you on Zoom, and conducting what I call an “analysis” of your situation.
I charge $50 for that hour-long meeting (not the $300 per hour I usually charge) and there’s no obligation beyond that.  You are under no obligation to hire me or ever talk to me again. everything I tell you, everything you tell me, is 100% confidential (unless you tell me you’re about to hurt yourself, another adult, or a child.) Let’s explore together the details of your situation, with my only motivation being to help if I can.
Wouldn’t you like to have a confidential talk with somebody you can trust?
By now, I’ve seen just about every situation in family law.  Nothing you tell me is going to shock me, and I may be able to find a creative solution you hadn’t thought of.   
Some areas I deal with are:
  • Divorce (any genders)
  • Child Custody and Visitation (‘Allocation’ and ‘Parenting Time.’)
  • Paternity and DNA Testing
  • Child Support – Collection and Defense
  • Contested child Adoption
  • Contested child Guardianship
  • Stopping and Preventing Abuse
  • Fighting Parental Alienation, Visitation Denial, Reluctance
  • Multi-State Custody Disputes  (UCCJEA issues)
  • Multi-Generational Custody Disputes  (Family feuds)
  • Fighting Against Long-Distance Moves of Children
  • Returning Children From Other States
  • Defending Against Psychological Warfare  (unfortunately, all too common)
  • Fighting ‘Contempt-of-Court’ Charges
In the video below, I explain how money is wasted on poorly-worded, vague paragraphs and phrases in Divorce, Custody and Parenting-Time Judgments when “the wheels come off” a year or so later.
Beward of some commonly-used paragraphs that sound good, but can make the parenting-time schedule useless or ‘illusory’ — not enforceable when you really need it!
Aggressive, passionate representation, guided by:
  • Over 25  years of experience 
  • Up-to-Date Lexis Advance© Legal Research
  • Honesty as a Spiritual Principle
Most attorneys don’t like to give out their cell numbers. However, I don’t hide behind protective staff people or behind a voicemail menu. My cell number is 312-493-4241.  You call, I answer.
