Attorney Profile

From her position as partner with the Weiss-Kunz & Oliver, LLC, law firm (which has offices in Elmhurst, Chicago and Park Ridge, Illinois), attorney Amanda M. Oliver thoughtfully and agressively serves the needs and interests of families whose matters involve the following:

·       Family law and divorce, including child custody (allocation of parenting time and responsibilities) and support, estate valuations and property division, spousal support, and other related matters

·       Adoptions

·       Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

·       Appeals

·       Modifications and enforcements

·       Paternity and parentage

·       Collaborative law and mediation

·       Same-sex marriage dissolution

Throughout the course of her more than 12 years practicing law, Ms. Oliver has earned high marks from both her clients and peers alike. In 2016 and 2019, she received the 10 Best Client Satisfaction Award from the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, and in 2013, Chicago Magazine voted her as one of the area's Top Women Attorneys. She also received recognition as a Top 40 under 40 attorney from The National Advocates in 2015.

Don't let Ms. Oliver's agressive litigation style prevent you from recognizing her as the thoughtful and skilled mediator that she is.  In an atmosphere of law that is shifting to a more mediation-focused approach to resolution, Ms. Oliver is ahead of the game. She has an ability to navigate fair and lasting settlements that save time, money and family relationships in even the most acrimonious cases. 

Ms. Oliver also serves as guardian ad litem for minor children caught in the throes of divorce or who need a child representative due to parental incompetence. In all cases, she is a compassionate and caring legal advocate who aggressively pursues the most favorable outcomes possible on behalf of her clients.

A 2003 graduate of Millikin University with a Bachelor of Arts in political science/prelaw, Ms. Oliver attended The John Marshall Law School, where she obtained her Juris Doctor in 2006. The Illinois State Bar Association admitted her to practice the following year, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

A leader in her field, Ms. Oliver has published articles and conducted lectures and seminars on a variety of family law topics. Fully committed to her practice, she maintains active memberships with the Illinois State Bar Association, The Chicago Bar Association and the Lake County Bar Association. She also serves on the National Basketball Retired Players Association's Advisory Board.
