Tanya Witt, Chicago Divorce Attorney
Boutique Firm Service.
Big Firm Experience.

Magna Cum Laude

Class of 1994

Experienced. Effective. Innovative.

I earned my law degree from Harvard Law School in 1994.  As a double Ivy League graduate, I attained my undergraduate degree magna cum laude (“with great honor”) from the University of Pennsylvania in 1991.

My clients have included CEOs, physicians, attorneys, entrepreneurs, and a retired NFL player. I have provided strategic consulting on a multi-billion dollar divorce and have successfully handled various international family law matters involving parties or assets in Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Peru, and Scotland.

For my select group of clients, I strive to be the best Chicago divorce lawyer. My firm’s practice is exclusively focused on family law: divorce, including high net worth divorces, parental responsibilities, parenting time, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements.  I represent both men and women, and, together with each client, we develop and execute a strong legal strategy tailored to each client’s goals and circumstances. I am a strong advocate in court for my clients.  For those seeking to resolve their matters outside of court, I offer mediation services and collaborative divorce.
