Chicago Family Law & Divorce Attorneys
Going through a divorce is more than just a saying: 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 Law Offices 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 Law Offices 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.

What our Clients are Saying
"This past fall, I filed for divorce. My husband and I were in a situation where neither of us really needed a lawyer to sort things out, so I decided to file pro se. I was concerned about making a mistake in the paperwork and delaying the final separation, so I called Sterling Law. Attorney Festerling agreed to work w/me on a "consult only" basis, meaning she would answer my questions and review my documents, charging only for the time spent on those things. There would be no big legal fees incurred for her presence in court or for her time in filling out documents that I was capable of handling myself. She was kind and helpful, and our case went through without a hitch. The overall outlay was very reasonable. I was very happy with the help I received and felt confident going to the court date, knowing all our ducks were in a row. It was as good as an experience like this can be."Beth E.
