Partner
When any of us are emotional, we often run into walls. I want my clients to find or construct a door in that wall so they can walk through it and build a happy future.

Muller Davis, who passed away on October 10, 2017, inspired us to be our best. He shared his encyclopedic knowledge of family law when he completed the first edition of Illinois Practice of Family Law in 1994, and encouraged our partners to join him as the content of annual editions grew for more than 3,000 pages. By example, he set the gold standard for our practice. He taught us how to fiercely guard our clients' privacy when they revealed their innermost confidences and how to be kind to everyone we encounter.
