Mr. Zwaska attended Santa Clara University as an undergraduate, where he majored in philosophy and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2004.

While he was there, Mr. Zwaska interned at Chicago Volunteer Legal Services, and he served a clerkship with a judge on the Domestic Relations Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County, which further sparked his interest in family law.

His other family law experience has included the representation of victims of domestic violence in their quest for protective orders, and he has worked on cases involving paternity disputes and establishment. He has been admitted to practice in Illinois since 2012, and he has received a “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo.
