"During this COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to provide collaborative family law services for divorce, post-decree, pre and postnuptial, and parentage matters. All negotiations are done outside of the court process and we are able to have these collaborative settlement meetings virtually, through audio/video meeting technology. This allows us to abide by the Federal and State guidelines for "social distancing" while continuing to move your case to full and final resolution. In addition, courts in the Chicago metropolitan area are now operating through a combination of in-person and virtual court proceedings, depending on the county. After a few months of delays, we are now able to move court cases forward. Of course, as always, we continue to provide free initial consultations, which can be performed virtually using audio/video technology. We look forward to serving you soon." -- Lawrence Manassa

Our approach is holistic and collaborative. While handling the legal issues of your divorce with proven excellence, we also encourage our clients to participate in individual counseling and workshops to help equip them for both the divorce process and life after divorce.

The attorneys at Manassa Law P.C. are truly different. While nationally awarded for our legal work in litigation, collaborative divorce and mediation, most of our attorneys also have bachelor’s degrees in psychology and are well equipped to understand the impact of divorce on your life.

We understand that divorce affects all areas of your life, and that is why we work collaboratively with counselors, divorce coaches, and financial planners to build a supportive team of professionals to help support you through your divorce.
