Certified Mediators – Over 50 Years of Family Law Experience
Michael Strauss and Gary Schlesinger are both certified as mediators, and are also family law court approved mediators. Mediation allows clients the opportunity to resolve their disputes in a less adversarial process where solutions are negotiated and agreed upon, rather than imposed or ordered by a judge. If mediation is unavailable or unsuccessful, our firm represents clients in family law litigation. We vigorously represent the best interests of children, parents, and spouses in complex custody and divorce cases.
As a student and scholar of family law topics, Mr. Schlesinger teaches and speaks at various schools and Continuing Legal Education seminars. He teaches at and attends numerous events, seminars, and conferences each year held by local, state, and national bar associates. He has testified before the Illinois legislature regarding various family law matters and is often sought out by other attorneys for answers to difficult or unique family law questions.
We have earned the respect of both judges and lawyers. Both of us are frequently appointed by judges in Lake County to represent children in contested and difficult child custody cases. As child’s representatives we protect the rights of children in family law cases. Each of us has been appointed as a guardian ad litem to protect children in adoption proceedings. Mr. Schlesinger has also been asked by judges to help write local court rules dealing with various administrative matters relating to family law practice in Lake County, Illinois.
