After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in legal and ethical philosophy from Loyola University Chicago in 1996, Ms. Eckert began her legal career as a paralegal.

As an attorney, Ms. Eckert is a consummate professional who fights hard for the rights and entitlements of her clients.

As a staunch advocate for families with special needs children, Ms. Eckert is passionate about ensuring these families have access to the support they need. While still in law school, she completed an externship with the Juvenile Court's Division of Child Abuse and Neglect, and also served as a research assistant to the Family Law Department. In 2008, she founded Attorneys for Children, a firm that represents children who have special needs as a result of accidents, injuries or developmental delays.
