Attorney Profile

Josephine Norton is an accomplished attorney serving Chicago families at the Law Offices of Jonathan Merel, P.C. She started her work with the law office as a clerk while completing her law degree and then became an associate attorney after she was admitted to the Illinois State Bar Association in 2017.

Ms. Norton first completed her undergraduate studies in sociology and psychology at DePaul University. However, after a year, she decided she could better serve families as their legal advocate. She then returned to school and completed her law degree in 2017 at the Chicago-Kent College of Law. During her studies, she completed certificate courses in litigation and alternative dispute resolution. She was also a top student and earned her place on the dean's list.

While in school, Ms. Norton first worked as a law clerk in the family law division of The Law Offices of Chicago-Kent. Her time at the in-house legal clinic gave her the opportunity to work directly with family law clients for the first time. This intensified her passion for serving families in Illinois.

When not helping families find amicable and unique solutions to family law matters, Ms. Norton spends time with her own family. She also enjoys exploring the Windy City and its surrounding areas.
