Katy Mickelson, J.D., is a partner in the Divorce and Family Law Group at Beermann LLP. Having spent her entire family law career at Beermann, Ms. Mickelson tailors each case to her client’s individual needs, whether it is dissolution of marriage proceedings (pre- and post-decree), paternity matters, prenuptial agreements or actions involving domestic violence. Ms. Mickelson believes that each family is different and she treats every case as another opportunity to help individuals transition to a new chapter in their lives that promotes financial and emotional dignity. Her ability to listen and “hear” her clients is one of her biggest strengths.
Ms. Mickelson’s trial and courtroom experience is extensive, however when costly litigation can be avoided, she will draw on her experience as a certified mediator to settle cases efficiently and expeditiously. Ms. Mickelson is known for her practical approach to problem solving, understanding that the family and its individual members continue to exist and thrive long after family law matters are resolved. It is this understanding that has enabled Ms. Mickelson to help her clients maneuver through the family law system and feel like their lives are still intact.
She is competent, direct, and works with a team of skilled people who keep me connected with my case. I would recommend Kathy and Beermann LLP to anybody in my situation. (Except anybody who wish to take me to court.)
I’m very early in my case, but Ms. Mickelson is proving herself a consummate professional. She is also personable, grounded, and easy to speak with.
I provide consultations to my client either by phone or at my office in downtown Chicago or Bannockburn. Consultations usually last one hour. I provide information about the process and my experience and approach. I also interview the client to ensure it is a mutual good fit.
