    Nancy is more than an excellent lawyer. She is a massive contributor to the legal community as a whole. As former president of the Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, she was invaluable. She is also dedicated to CLE and to educating many generations of family attorneys. On a personal level, she was pivotal to my early development and education as a lawyer. Additionally, she is a caring, thoughtful and energetic child's representative.
