Posted by Gina Colaluca | Dec 05, 2017 | 0 Comments

Recently, Gina and Laura celebrated a victory at the Illinois Supreme Court with respect to an attorney fee issue that affects family law attorneys in the State of Illinois. Prior to the Illinois Supreme Court decision issued on Gina and Laura's case, In re the Marriage of Goesel, it was very unclear when and how family law attorneys could be required to tender funds to pay the other party's attorney, in a process called disgorgement.
