Leah Trachtman is an experienced Chicago attorney who has practiced family law since 2005. Leah is passionate about family law because it allows her to help individuals,  children and families on a personal level.

Leah understands the anxiety and financial concerns that accompany divorce and other  family law litigation. She understands that your divorce is more than simply a matter of  dividing assets — it is a critical decision with a tremendous impact on your life, as well as those around you. Just like every family is unique, no two cases are the same. Leah will work with you to create a plan and strategy tailored to your personal circumstances.

You can trust Leah’s extensive litigation background representing individuals in all aspects of family law matters, including child custody and visitation, removal, child support, spousal support, property division, characterization of property, complex financial matters, and pre and post nuptial agreements.

Leah is able to use her knowledge and experience to negotiate and litigate your family law matters. She strives to work cooperatively with the opposing party and counsel to resolve issues outside the courtroom. However, when settlement is not possible she is experienced at aggressively and persistently advocating for her clients in court.

When you work with Leah you have the benefit of working with an experienced attorney who is appropriately aggressive and gives you and your case the personalized attention needed to achieve the best outcome possible.
