Family Law With A Focus On Your Specific Needs
We guide clients through the legal complexities and emotional challenges associated with divorce.

Every Client Receives Personalized Representation

Divorce means different things to different people. For some, it is a highly emotional process that comes unexpectedly. For others, it is the legal step that must be taken to move forward. No matter how you approach the matter, working with an understanding attorney can make all the difference.

At The Law Offices of Van A. Schwab, we provide honest, experienced representation to clients in Chicago and across Illinois who have challenging family law concerns. Attorney Van A. Schwab has been handling family law cases for more than four decades. That experience is invaluable when resolving critical issues, such as child custody and the division of marital assets.
