Lake County Divorce Litigation Lawyer

While the most effective way to divorce is usually through mediation or another approach to a settlement agreement, there are cases in which spouses simply cannot work together. If you and your spouse simply cannot reach an agreement on one or more aspects of your divorce, litigation may be the best option.

My name is Tom Gurewitz. I have four decades of experience guiding individuals in Waukegan and Lake County through contested divorces. I know what it takes to present a compelling case in court that supports your best interests.

Protecting Your Children When It Matters Most

For many people in Illinois, child custody is the most contentious issue in a divorce. Your relationship with your child is important. As your lawyer, I will do everything in my power to fight for a custody agreement that is fair, in the best interests of your children, and allows you to maintain your relationship with your children.

Fighting For Fair Property Division

When you and your spouse have complex or substantial assets, the importance of working with an experienced attorney cannot be understated. With 40 years of experience, I know what goes into handling the most complicated division of property, including:

  • 401(k)s, pensions and other retirement accounts
  • Business valuation
  • Stocks and other investments
  • Marital residence
