Top qualities: Trustworthy, Knowledgeable, Focused

I highly recommend Ross Levey as a Divorce Attorney. I knew for several years before I filed that I wanted to get a divorce. I used this time to educate myself on the process and interview divorce attorneys. Ross clearly stood out. First of all he listened to my concerns and needs. I found him to be trustworthy, knowledgeable and very easy to work with. During this emotional time he kept me focused in order to make rational and not emotional decisions. He went to battle for me when needed and because of this I came out financially ahead. I am very pleased with my choice. Angela B, former client

West, Inc. Hires Yavitz As Its Illinois Family Law Expert

West, Inc., a division of Thomson Reuters, in October 2012, was looking for an Illinois family law expert to help them develop a new product that consisted of about 200 automated legal forms that were specific to Illinois family law and that would be assembled by answering a series of questions to guide the user through the forms. Information would only be entered once and then reused throughout the rest of the forms in a case.

West chose Mr. Yavitz as its Illinois family law expert, and over the next three months he worked closely with the Westlaw attorneys in developing the forms to be used. These Illinois family law forms are now available through Westlaw.
