About

Margaret Zuleger

"It’s satisfying to give people good advice and support so that they might have the best possible outcome in their case.

 

I believe it is important to try to respectfully end a marriage or relationship without letting the legal system destroy the family emotionally or financially."

Ms. Zuleger has been a licensed attorney in Illinois since 1992, and currently devotes her practice exclusively to Family Law, with an emphasis on Collaborative Divorce.
