PEORIA, PEKIN AND CENTRAL ILLINOIS FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY

Tamara MeisterMeet Attorney Tamara Meister

From the experiences of friends and family, I know divorce can be an involved process and a difficult time for everyone involved. My aim is to be a strong advocate for those who need a voice within the context of divorce proceedings. I share Susan and Kelly's dedication to our clients, and share their passion in helping individuals deal with the financial and emotional effects of divorce. I also share their policy of working toward minimizing roadblocks, and aggressively and thoroughly advocating our clients' positions in the courtroom.

Prior to joining the firm, I worked for a large Chicago firm in civil litigation, for an international corporation in transactional and real estate issues, and as an assistant state's attorney in Tazewell County, where I prosecuted misdemeanors. I strive each day to provide representation which is efficient, effective and compassionate.
