“Chicago Divorce Lawyers near me?”
You may find it helpful to call me at 

When I represent a client, I work to maximize that person’s ‘Freedom of Action,’ so that they have choices and are not pressured into giving away their rights, their money, or time with their children unnecessarily.

Since you’ve found my website, it’s likely you are experiencing fear and uncertainty.  The sense that everything important to you is being threatened.  
Your head’s on fire with thoughts, emotions and a overriding feeling of dread.  It seems that every word you say or write, and every action you take, could affect your future and that of your children and your assets and finances.
Call me, and I’ll set up a same-day Zoom meeting with you.  I call this an ‘Analysis,’ where I meet with you, answer all of your questions and come up with a possible plan of action.  I focus on how you can navigate to a successful outcome in the complex family-law system.  
I don’t have time for a sales pitch — I don’t use the valuable time in an Analysis to promote myself.  
Of course, you want an attorney to place your goals and interests, and those of your children, above all other business concerns.  Ethically, that is the lawyer’s duty
“Kevin Johnson came into my case replacing another attorney I had originally and was remarkable on the way he represented me and the manner in which he navigated me through this process. His work was truly commendable. Kevin was extremely knowledgeable in all areas of family law and was more than adequately prepared. He kept me informed on every aspect of this case and made himself available to meet throughout the prep work leading up to the hearing. I was exceptionally pleased with the outcome and more so by the high level of professionalism, performance and respect everyone in the courtroom had for Kevin. He is an outstanding attorney and his work was well worth the time and money invested in him. If I ever have another problem where we need legal services, Kevin will be on the ONLY person I call for representation. Thanks again for all you did on this case.”
“I’m so happyyyy! 😊
“Glad that I had someone with integrity in my corner!”
“Hi Kevin,
I received  the refund check for overpaid fees.
Thank you for being such a pillar of support during such a crazy time for me.  I appreciate everything you’ve done and apologize for your wait on the fees due.
Keep up your good works!
Thanks  again”

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!
