    Attorney Profile

    A partner at the Law Offices of Jonathan Merel, P.C., David Zwaska focuses his practice exclusively on family law matters. From his firm’s offices in Chicago, he represents clients in the greater metropolitan area and throughout the state of Illinois.

    Mr. Zwaska attended Santa Clara University as an undergraduate, where he majored in philosophy and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2004. Some years later, he decided to pursue a legal education, and he enrolled at DePaul University College of Law. 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.

    After graduating with his Juris Doctor in 2012, Mr. Zwaska was associated with area law firms until joining his current firm in March 2020. A sizable portion of his practice involves his representation of people whose marriages have come to an end and who thus have to deal with such issues as parenting time, spousal and child support, and the division of marital assets and financial obligations. He uses his extensive courtroom experience on their behalf in the event that negotiations have broken down and litigation has become necessary.

    In addition to his matrimonial practice, Mr. Zwaska has helped clients whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who now are seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing support and parenting orders. 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.
