About Us

The Law Office of Dean S. Dussias is one of Chicagoland’s premier matrimonial and family law practices.

Our law firm’s goal is to provide the highest degree of professionalism and excellence in the area of family law. Our lawyers are skilled at handling financially complicated cases in a discrete and confidential manner.

We are problem solvers dedicated to helping our clients and their families navigate this difficult and emotional area of the law with dignity, compassion and privacy. Our lawyers are committed to helping clients negotiate when possible but are also prepared to litigate when necessary.

Some cases have to be litigated but going to trial should be a last resort. Our clients appreciate that we often recommend alternatives to costly court proceedings such as mediation and collaborative divorces. Our goal is to solve disputes in a rational and cost effective manner without dragging anyone through the mud.
