"Experience is important in a family law case. No one wants to go to court not knowing what to expect. I have good working relationships with most of the attorneys who handle family law cases in DuPage, Will and Kane counties, which aids in the negotiating of settlements and can help keep the process civil. I am also familiar with many of the local judges, and I can use that familiarity to anticipate how they might rule in your case." — Terry Fawell
