Arlington Heights Divorce Lawyer Dedicated To Our Clients’ Success

Buffalo Grove Law Offices understands that at the center of any family law matter is a family. We are committed to helping families struggling with divorce and other emotional family law issues to resolve their disagreements and move forward with their lives.

There is life after divorce. We help clients prepare for that future. With experience and veteran perspective, we help families arrive at individualized outcomes to help them continue to thrive through the future, even if the dynamics and relationships have changed. This includes working to ensure that the future is financially and emotionally supported for both you and your children. We advocate for the children from start to finish, ensuring that their worlds are impacted as minimally as possible.

Our firm often assists clients in avoiding the uncertainty and expense of a courtroom battle by negotiating favorable out-of-court solutions through mediation and arbitration. However, if the other side is unwilling to agree to a fair settlement, our principal attorney, Angela E. Peters, is a veteran trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience successfully defending our clients’ interests at trial.
