About the Law Office of Elizabeth Butler   

   Choosing a lawyer to represent you in a legal matter is about finding an attorney knowledgeable in the area of your needs whose litigation style you feel most comfortable representing your needs.  My initial hour-long consultation is free.  During that time we discuss your needs, the likely progression of your case, and the ideal outcome.  This consultation is also a time in which you will get a sense of my litigation style and determine whether the partnership we will forge moving forward is best for you.  
    I practice in all areas of Juvenile Law:  IL DCFS Administrative Appeals (Indicated Findings and Licensing Issues), Defending Parents Against Allegations of Abuse or Neglect in Circuit Court Proceedings, Defending Children against Delinquency Allegations, and Appeals of Termination of Parental Rights, Findings of Delinquency, and Domestic Relations related appeals.
