A Knowledgeable Divorce, DUI and Estate Planning Lawyer In DuPage County

If a legal concern involves your family, your financial security, your freedom or all of these, it matters to me. I am Monika Blacha, an attorney practicing in Illinois since 1999 who will treat you with care and respect as we help you achieve your most vital family-related personal and financial goals.  I can also help you achieve the best possible outcome if you ever find yourself facing criminal charges, such as a DUI.

Every working day, I apply an outstanding education and extensive experience in negotiations, mediation and high-stakes litigation to resolve my clients' legal issues as favorably as possible. My clear mission is to provide the utmost in personally attentive, results-focused counsel in matters of divorce and family law, estate planning/probate, and criminal law.

Complex Case Experience • An Approachable, Highly Responsive Attorney

As a partner in the Chicago office of a large, prestigious firm for many years, I refined the skills needed to handle extremely complex matters effectively. While practicing primarily in complex commercial litigation, I was selected for inclusion in Illinois Super Lawyers Rising Stars for 2010. You can turn to my firm, Blacha Law Office for focused guidance and assertive protection of your interests if you are, for example:

  • Facing divorce and all that entails in terms of difficult decisions impacting children, property and your personal future
  • Confronting another challenging family law issue such as a change in circumstances that calls for a post-decree modification of child support, alimony, custody or visitation
  • In need of comprehensive estate planning counsel, whether you have basic assets and straightforward goals or substantial wealth and sophisticated objectives
  • Charged with a violation of the criminal code, including DUI, Driver's License Suspension, Domestic Battery and more

I am a certified family law mediator available to serve in that capacity or put my proven dispute resolution abilities to work as a dedicated advocate for you. I strive to achieve affordable, nonadversarial resolution whenever possible but always stand ready for litigation if that is the necessary path. Similarly, I am able to negotiate from a position of strengh out of court with the prosecutor's office, or fight vigorously should your case go to trial.

Call me today to start helping you stand up for your rights and get what you want from our legal system.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
