Skilled Negotiators

At the Law Offices of Jonathan Merel, P.C., our lawyers believe that the best result in any family law matter is achieved through a negotiated settlement if possible. Though divorce, custody, and other family law proceedings are often adversarial in nature, we recognize that the parties must continue to engage each other long after the case is complete, especially if custody and/or support issues are involved.

Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who understand how to achieve and prepare negotiated settlements dealing with complex financial, property, custody, visitation, and support issues.

Our goal is to enable you to:

  • Move forward with your life
  • Carry on respectful interactions with your family
  • Avoid future litigation costs

Unafraid of the Courtroom

While settlement is always the preferred result in any family law proceeding, litigation is often a reality. The attorneys at our firm are impassioned and knowledgeable litigators, always prepared to fight in court to obtain favorable results for our clients.

We promote a cost-effective approach to litigation and are keenly aware of the value of each dollar to our clients. Therefore, we approach each step in the litigation process with a clear goal in mind and only utilize the courts when necessary.


We look forward to helping you achieve your goals. Call us at (312) 487-2795 to get started.
