Scott P. Kramer


Practicing family law exclusively, Scott prides himself on guiding each client through their legal issue in manner that is tailored to their individual situation.  That personalized guidance begins at the outset of the case, as Scott ensures that each client selects the most appropriate process for their circumstances.  With years of experience in all three main processes – Litigation, Mediation, and Collaborative – Scott can ensure that your venue suits your desired solution.  Ultimately, Scott’s goal is to achieve his clients’ goals in the most effective and efficient manner.

Every year since 2014, Scott has been selected by Super Lawyers Magazine as an Illinois Rising Star.  Focusing on family law, Scott has successfully represented clients across a diverse spectrum of complex family issues such as parenting time, asset allocation, custody/decisionmaking authority, child support, and maintenance.  When the stakes are high and confidentiality is critical, Scott often navigates clients through out-of-court processes such as Collaborative or Mediation.  When litigation is necessary, Scott’s trial and appellate court experience provide his clients with the advocacy required to move forward during an otherwise challenging time.  Adept at both in and out of court solutions, Scott successfully completed both the National Family Law Institute’s rigorous Trial Advocacy Training Program as well as the Collaborative Skills Training Program.
