Candace Pietschmann Attorney and Mediator
The Law Office of Candace Pietschmann was established in 1992, in downtown Cary, Illinois, a far northwest suburb of Chicago. I graduated from John Marshall Law School and obtained my mediation training from the Divorce Mediation Institute. My collaborative divorce training was from The Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois.
Description of Practice
My practice includes uncontested divorces with agreements in place, divorce mediation, and Collaborative Law. I focus on respectful, dignified methods to resolve the issues involved when dissolving a marriage. I help people "get there from here" in terms of transitioning to single, separated lives. My focus is also very much on any children and parenting issues.
I worked for another law firm for three years after I graduated from law school and then started my own practice. My basic mediation training was with The Divorce Mediation Institute in 1990. I have been mediating and attending intermediate and advanced training in mediation ever since. In 2002 when Collaborative Divorce came to Illinois, I signed up for the first training in this state, and began practicing Collaborative Law. I also have continuing intermediate and advanced training in Collaborative Law.
Cases that I have mediated include complex asset distribution, custody, parenting,support, maintenance, liability and same sex issues. My experience in divorce mediation is very comprehensive.
I am currently a practice group leader and chair of the practice group leaders committee for the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois. I am a former director of Mediation Council of Illinois, and a current member of Mediation Council of Illinois and Mediate.com.
