Adeline is an attorney licensed in both Colorado and Illinois, practicing exclusively in family law. Adeline counsels her clients on numerous aspects of divorce and child-related proceedings, including parenting time, support, property division and financial issues related to divorce, both pre- and post-decree. Both as a law clerk and as an attorney, Adeline has worked on many cases involving the representation of children, parent coordination, child and family investigations, allocation of parenting time and parental responsibilities, dissipation claims, high net-worth divorces, property division and establishing paternity, among other family law issues.
While Adeline appreciates the need for litigation in some matters, she realizes that families benefit greatly from settlement and promotes alternative dispute resolution processes, such as mediation. Adeline helps her clients focus on the big picture and customizes her approach to every client’s individual needs, as there is no “one size fits all” in family law. In addition to advocating inside and outside of the court room, Adeline also prides herself on helping her clients through their emotional grieving process.
Adeline’s legal acumen was recognized by the University of Illinois-Chicago John Marshall School of Law, where she graduated cum laude with certificates in Alternative Dispute Resolution and Trial Advocacy.
During law school, Adeline gained invaluable family law experience as a judicial extern with the Honorable Regina Scannicchio in the Cook County Domestic Relations Division. Adeline’s experience working directly with a domestic relations judge provided her unique insight into how to prepare for and present a family law case. She later became a law clerk at one of Chicago’s premiere family law firms, serving clients in complex divorce and family law matters.
Adeline is a Colorado native, graduating from Colorado State University. Adeline’s passion for family law and child welfare began even prior to law school, when she worked with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) at the Harmony House, supervising court-ordered visits between children and non-custodial adults in their lives. Working at Harmony House provided Adeline with a unique skill-set that she has incorporated into her family law practice. Adeline’s work is also deeply influenced by her own experience as a child of divorce; her compassion and insight in this regard is highly valuable to her clients.
