When you are facing a divorce, the need for a skilled family law attorney is a given. But often, economic and tax issues surrounding dissolution of a marriage also demand financial expertise. Dividing property not only has a tax impact, but the settlement you make will affect you for years to come. If children are involved, both settlement and issues of child custody, child support and visitation add to the realm of knowledge your attorney must have to achieve the best possible results to secure your future.

Among a select few Chicago law firms with expertise in business valuation and forensic accounting, Levin & Brend offer a broad spectrum of legal and financial services related to matrimonial law.

Our attorneys handle cases associated with all aspects of family law – divorce, spousal support, tax aspects, alimony, child support, child custody and visitation. When complicated custody and visitation issues arise in a contested divorce, the court regularly appoints our attorneys as the child's representative.

With more than 80 years of combined experience, our attorneys and professional staff blend skills in matrimonial law, business valuations, forensic accounting and tax law. Our attorneys, who are also accountants, are prepared to address both the legalities of dissolving a marriage and the economic ramifications a couple faces, when their finances are complex.

At Levin & Brend we are uniquely prepared to investigate and evaluate the value of assets in divorce cases, including stock portfolios, mutual funds, pension plans, 401Ks, real estate, closely held businesses, mortgages and loans. Our attorneys also handle business transactions and document changes brought about by divorce. In addition, certification as fraud examiners and business appraisers enable us to provide further dimension to the expertise we offer our clients.

When you need multi-faceted expertise to resolve your family law issues, you will find trusted legal counsel, accounting know-how and commitment to child advocacy under one roof.
