Attorney Profile

An associate at the Law Offices of Martin A. Delaney III, Ltd., Helena Trachtenberg focuses her practice exclusively on family law matters. Working out of the firm's offices in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, she provides astute representation to clients throughout Cook County and other parts of the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Ms. Trachtenberg, who is fluent in both English and Russian and admitted to practice before all Illinois and Florida state courts, has received an "Excellent" peer review rating through Avvo for both her successful track record and for the ethical manner in which she handles what are often emotional cases. She has also been named to The National Advocates: Top 40 Under 40.

Ms. Trachtenberg's practice is largely centered on representing people whose marriages are coming to an end and who face such divorce-related issues as alimony and child support, the division of complex marital assets and debts, and parental responsibilities and parenting time. A forceful courtroom advocate for her clients when necessary, she also helps many of them attempt to reach accord on some of these matters through the negotiation of settlement agreements. Ms. Trachtenberg has also been named a guardian ad litem for children who are involved in contentious custody proceedings, and she has appeared before the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services on behalf of children who have been abused or neglected.

Ms. Trachtenberg, a native of Minsk, Belarus, attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and received a bachelor's degree in international trade policy and development in 2007. Her legal education came at the University of Miami School of Law, and she served an internship with the 11th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida before being awarded her law degree in 2010.
