Attorney Profile

Focusing her practice exclusively on family law, Nichole M. Waltz is a partner at Waltz, Palmer & Dawson, LLC. Located in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, she serves clients throughout Cook, DuPage, Lake, Kane and McHenry counties, and other parts of the greater Chicago metropolitan area. A large part of her caseload consists of divorce matters, and in that regard, Ms. Waltz helps her clients who are dealing with such related issues as the equitable division of marital assets and debts, spousal and child support, and child custody and visitation. Trained in both mediation and collaborative divorce law, she often encourages her clients to reach an accord on these matters through the use of those alternative dispute resolution methods. In addition to her matrimonial practice, Ms. Waltz regularly prepares and reviews prenuptial and postmarital agreements as well.

Admitted to practice before all Illinois state courts, Ms. Waltz is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The quality of her work both in and out of the courtroom as well as her high degree of ethics has earned her a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. In addition, the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys included Ms. Waltz in 2015 in its annual list of the 10 Best Attorneys Under 40, and she was named by the American Society of Legal Advocates as one of the Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 in that same year.

Majoring in philosophy and political science, Ms. Waltz attended The University of Iowa and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1998. Her legal education came at DePaul University College of Law in Chicago, and she was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2001. Ms. Waltz has been with her current firm since 2008.
