Barrington divorce attorney Lawrence ManassaLawrence Manassa, (Partner), is a highly skilled litigator with 29 years of trial experience.  He has a proven record of success through hundreds of trials.  Still, Lawrence understands that litigation is not always in his client’s best interest, and is also proficient at collaborative law and mediation.  Lawrence is a former Assistant State’s Attorney in Cook County and is on a very select list of Court approved Child Representative in both Cook and McHenry County.

As a divorced father, he understands the trauma of divorce first hand and strives to help prepare his divorcing clients for life after their divorce.  Lawrence is also committed to his clients and his community.  He volunteered his time for 7 years at Illinois’ largest divorce care group, has donated his time to help the underprivileged at Administer Justice, Between Friends, and recently founded as a resource for those struggling with Christian faith-based family law and divorce issues. Lawrence was also one of the founding attorneys for Willow Creek Community Church’s legal aid ministry.
