CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake family law attorney Karen M. Lavin, of The Law Offices of KML Associates PC, has been selected as one of the Top 100 family lawyers in Illinois for 2014.
Chosen by the American Society of Legal Advocates, the honor is the culmination of independent, national research selecting less than 1.5 percent of eligible attorneys. Emphasis is placed on legal credentials with proven commitment to community engagement, leadership and the highest professional standards.
“I am humbled and honored to be recognized in this fashion,” Lavin said. “It’s nice to know after 32 years in the profession that I’ve not only earned every gray hair on my head, but also the respect of my colleagues.”
Lavin has more than 30 years of legal experience, and her practice areas include family law, divorce, property division, custody and support, same-sex couples, order of protection, estate planning and probate.
She graduated with high honors from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a degree in women’s studies, and she went on to Chicago Kent College of Law, graduating with honors.
