Attorney Profile

Since graduating with a Juris Doctor from DePaul University College of Law in 1993, Ross S. Levey has committed himself to the practice of matrimonial and family law. As a partner with Yavitz & Levey, LLP, he represents clients in Cook County and Lake County, Illinois, in matters such as premarital agreements, contested and uncontested divorces, allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time, paternity, post-divorce modification and enforcement, and all other aspects of matrimonial law.

As an experienced attorney, Mr. Levey has written extensively about his practice area, publishing works for LexisNexis, the Illinios Bar Journal, the Illinois State Bar Association Family Law Section Newsletter, and the American Bar Association. He has also lectured about divorce and related topics for groups that include the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the Illinois State Bar Association, the Illinois Institute of Continuing Legal Education and for the charitable organization, The Lilac Tree.

Mr. Levey was admitted to practice law in Illinois in 1993 and takes his job to advocate for clients seriously. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and previously served as the Chair of the Illinois State Bar Association's Family Law Section Council. These organizations give him the ability to network with other attorneys and develop new strategies for effective representation. Mr. Levey understands that this is often a difficult time for people, and he is dedicated to helping them find a solution that works for their particular situation. He has helped people from all backgrounds, including those who have been married for just a short time, and those who are pouring over decades of accumulated assets trying to resolve a property division dispute. He has extensive experience with cases involving complex financial strategies, business valuations and tax issues.

In 1990, Mr. Levey graduated with honors and a Bachelor of Science in business administration from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
