Behind Illinois Divorce Resource

Divorce is one of the most stressful events in an individual or family’s life.  As a Chicago area divorce lawyer, I understand the emotional strain a divorce can cause, and my job is to help reduce your stress by putting my divorce law experience and skill to work for you.

Shana L. Vitek – Partner, Beermann LLP

 
Shana L. Vitek is a partner at the law firm Beermann LLP, one of the largest and most well-
respected divorce and family law firms in Illinois. She has exclusively practiced family law since 2003, representing clients in divorce, child custody disputes, premarital agreements and post-divorce matters. She is a member of the firm’s Family Law Sports and Entertainment Division, where she has gained extensive experience working on high profile cases with excellent results. Ms. Vitek has repeatedly been selected for inclusion on the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, a designation reserved for only 2.5% of the lawyers in Illinois, and in 2013 was named one of the “Top 40 Illinois Attorneys Under 40 to Watch” by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.
 
Although not a stranger to the courtroom, Ms. Vitek strongly believes that even the toughest divorce cases are best resolved by the parties through amicable settlement negotiations that preserve the integrity of the family through this difficult process. She is proud of the fact that many of her clients never even step foot into a courtroom until the day they finalize their divorce.
 
Ms. Vitek is also a Fellow of the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois, which encourages
parties to take control of the divorce process and make decisions that are in the best interest of the family as opposed to spending substantial time, money and experiencing significant stress in court. She has received a Certificate of Professional Achievement in Family and Divorce Mediation Training from DePaul University.
 
Shana lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband Eric, their daughter, their son, and two dogs.  She created this website to help those contemplating a divorce gain hope and empowerment through knowledge of the process and providing resources to transition forward into a new phase of their life.

Shana has a rating of 10.0 on the Avvo.com attorney website. To see reviews from some of Ms. Vitek’s former clients, Click Here.

I strongly believe that division of a family is not synonymous with destruction of a family, and court should always be a last resort.”  –Shana L. Vitek
