Untangling the Web of Property Division Laws in Schaumburg

With the help of Attorney Nina of Sterling Lawyers in Schaumburg, Illinois, Emma was able to make sense of the bureaucracy and protect her rights and interests during her property division case in Cook County.
As a veterinarian with her own successful small animal clinic in Schaumburg, Emma devoted long hours to caring for pets in her community.

Emma’s clinic employed several vet techs, receptionists and kennel assistants. She took pride in being able to provide jobs to hard working individuals in the community. Outside of work, Emma was a busy single mom to her 13-year-old daughter. Managing her daughter’s busy school and extracurricular schedules on top of running her veterinary practice kept Emma on her toes.
