About this firm

James Palmisano and the Palmisano Law Group help individuals and families in Chicago and neighboring communities throughout Cook County and Will County in the areas of divorce and family law. From simple separation or marital settlement agreements to complex business valuations and complicated custody disputes, our lawyers have the skills and experience, based on decades of legal practice, to find an efficient, effective solution to our clients' legal needs.

It is not just diligence and attention to detail that sets the Palmisano Law Group apart from other law firms, it is also our willingness to go the extra mile to get the best result for our clients. While we readily attempt to settle our client's disputes amicably, whenever it is appropriate, we are also ready, willing and able to engage in trial and appellate litigation when that is what it takes to achieve success.

It is our goal to provide superior legal services to each client, by keeping each client fully informed of the status of their case, and provide each client with full knowledge of the laws applicable to their case and the legal alternatives available to them.

We understand the unique challenges surrounding complex family law cases and we utilize systems and procedures to develop the facts of each case to enable us to support and present legal arguments on behalf of each client in a persuasive and proficient manner, often leading to a successful outcome of the issues presented.

Whether you are facing a divorce, legal separation or a paternity action that could also involve child custody issues or numerous other issues that affect families, the lawyers at Palmisano Law Group are dedicated to achieving the best possible results for you.

At Palmisano Law Group we offer prospective clients a free hour (sixty minute) consultation. In this consultation, you will get a chance to talk with an attorney about family law issues you face. We will ask questions about your situation and help you understand what you can expect if you choose to work with us.

    I am blessed to have him as my attorney. He is my 4th lawyer. The others have left me feeling abandoned, and broke with minimal results. Mr. Palmisano has great integrity and values. I witnessed him work hard to get a good result. He is aggressive and will not give up. I have seen the impossible become possible. Miracles do happen!

    Mr. Palmisano helped me and my children immensely. I had an extremely difficult case but Mr. Palmisano took it on and made sure that my children and I were taken care of. He is wonderful with kids and really cares about their welfare during a very tough situation. I could always reach him when I needed to, he always returned my phone calls and he explained the process so I understood step by step what was going to happen next. Even after my case was over, I still called him for advice!

    I was represented by another attorney prior to meeting Mr. Palmissano. After we had a consultation, I immediately retained his services as I knew he was an expert on family law. Despite my unique case he knew EVERY aspect of the law. Mr. Palmissano is amazing. He takes the time to talk to me, very fair about billing(despite his expertise),and knows family law inside and out! He has protected my daughter and me. Thanks Jim, I am eternally grateful for you. He is not only a lawyer but a gentleman.

    My case was a straight forward divorce. I was told the cost should not exceed $2.5k and it was $6k and still not resolved. Jennifer Hoffman was my attorney and she was inexperienced and it showed.
