Your Chicago Family Law and Estate Planning Lawyers

Proudly Serving the LGBTQ Community for More Than 35 Years

At Jill M. Metz & Associates, we believe that caring and dedicated attorneys can make a positive difference in the life of their clients and their community. More than 35 years ago, attorney Jill M. Metz founded our firm with a strong resolve to serve her local community and act as an advocate for people whose rights and interests were inadequately protected.

Today, our firm is on the cutting-edge of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights. We have experience working with the courts, working to change laws and handling a broad spectrum of legal matters that affect the rights of the LGBTQ community.

Helping Clients Avoid Legal Entanglements

Much of the work that we do is designed to help our clients avoid legal problems that can occur in the absence of proper legal planning. Proactive services at the beginning of an endeavor or a relationship are important.

Business owners should give careful consideration to the type of business entity they choose when incorporating. Same-sex couples can benefit significantly from estate planning, prenuptial agreements and well-crafted legal instruments that define the rights of parties involved in an adoption.

Dispute Resolution

Even with the best of planning, legal disputes may arise that require the attention of a knowledgeable attorney. We are well known in the community for our solution-oriented approach to legal issues such as divorce, custody and visitation disputes, business and real estate disputes, probate disputes and other complex legal matters. Our attorneys are experienced at resolving disputes through negotiation, mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods. However, when disputes may not be effectively resolved through negotiation, mediation and other alternate dispute resolution measures, we have the litigation experience to vigorously protect our clients' rights in the courtroom.
