Negotiated Settlement Agreements

When it comes to divorce, the best way to avoid a trial is to prepare for one. At Lake Toback DiDomenico in Chicago, our attorneys begin each case in a litigation stance. We are known for our aggressive advocacy, unflinching determination and strong record of results. Our reputation as trial lawyers means that we are often able to negotiate favorable settlement agreements without the necessity of a trial.

The stakes in divorce can be extremely high. The outcome can have a significant impact on your parental rights and financial security. A negotiated settlement can remove the risk and uncertainty of a trial. Judges have considerable discretion in areas such as marital property division and parental rights. Negotiations take the outcome of your case out of the judge’s hands and puts it where it belongs: in the hands of two parties and their legal representatives.

Our attorneys negotiate with a firm resolve to leverage the most favorable settlement agreements. When it is necessary to fight for the protection of your rights and interests at trial, we have top trial attorneys who can provide the strong advocacy you require. We also represent clients in alternative dispute resolution techniques such as mediation and arbitration.
