How We Help Clients
About Sterling Hughes, LLC
Going through a divorce is more than just a saying, and our Chicago divorce lawyers understand it's a difficult process that can take a toll on both your physical and emotional health.
With multiple locations throughout Illinois, our goal at Sterling Hughes is to ease your anxiety by taking care of the legal details of your divorce, child custody or other family law cases. Our team of family lawyers wants to make you a priority and every person in our friendly Chicago office is dedicated to putting you and your family first.
Our aim of reducing the stress facing our clients is reflected in our unique flat-rate pricing system. The last thing you need during a difficult time is the added worry of an unknown attorney bill and hidden fees at the end of it. We don't charge hourly, which means that no matter how drawn out or complex your case becomes the price you pay never changes.
Included in your fee is all communication, research, travel, and time that our lawyers spend working with you. Our goal is to be proud of our work and provide the best possible outcome for our clients, not to nickel-and-dime the people who put their trust in us.
Unlike many law offices, which offer a little of this and a little of that, at Sterling Hughes we practice exclusively in family law. Our team is made up of experienced divorce lawyers, Collaborative Law practitioners and trained mediators with over 60 years of combined experience. And all of our attorneys combine their varied backgrounds and know-how by sharing information daily to work towards a common goal for the benefit of our clients.
We also make use of an excellent network of professionals who could be the difference between winning and losing a case. Our network includes social workers, court officials, appraisers, and therapists that share our passion for finding what is fair in the law.
Communication is an important key to our success in building trust with each client we work with. We will take care of you and walk you through every step of the process. Our daily updates and strategy sharing will relieve you any extra weight you carry as the case evolves. We realize that this may be one of the toughest times of your life, and we are here to help guide you through it.
