Theresa is honored to receive an appointment to the Family Law Section Council of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA). Comprised of judges and experienced family law attorneys, this committee provides valuable input on legislation, provides continuing education, and generally supports the Council’s mission:
“To encourage and support a high level of professional and ethical commitment and expertise among those who practice family law in all its substantive branches; to remain sensitive to the changing needs and mores of families and individual family members in our society; to respond through reasoned efforts directed toward the appropriate branch of government, and bar and/ or the public; and to accomplish understanding of the law as it exists and is applied, or change of that law, where it is needed.”
This committee was instrumental in the passage of the recent Illinois Collaborative Process Act. Many view her appointment to be an indication of growing acceptance of non-adversarial divorce processes.
