Lawrence S. Manassa, (Partner), is a remarkably competent divorce lawyer with 23 years of divorce litigation experience. He has a verified record of winning over hundreds of trials. Even so, Lawrence knows that litigation is not frequently in his client’s best interest, and is also adept at collaborative law, negotiation, and mediation. Lawrence is a past Assistant State’s Attorney in Cook County and is on a particularly select list of Court authorized Child Representatives in both Cook and McHenry County, Illinois.
As a divorced father, he understands the stress of divorce or separation first hand and strives to prepare his divorcing clients for a healthy life after their divorce case. Lawrence is also fully committed to his clients and his local community. He volunteered his legal expertise and time for 7 years at Illinois’ biggest divorce care group and has generously donated his time and legal advice to serve the underprivileged at Administer Justice and Between Friends. Lawrence was also one of the founding lawyers for Willow Creek Community Church’s legal aid ministry.
