Michael L. Lodermeier says he pursued a career in law because he loves helping people. “In family and matrimonial law, people come to us at possibly the lowest part of their lives,” says Lodermeier, who has been successfully practicing family and divorce law for more than 20 years. “Clients many times feel lost and do not have anyone to turn to for support. I am honored to be that light in those dark times.” With an expertise in divorce, paternity, custody, child support, and asset discovery, Lodermeier has skillfully and efficiently conducted numerous trials, depositions, and hearings. His diverse client base ranges from high net-worth individuals to clients with more modest means. “I treat each client with the same dedication to success,” explains Lodermeier, who has been named an Illinois Super Lawyer since 2008. “I take the time to listen to my clients to better understand their fears, concerns and goals.” It’s the talent for listening that he says has driven him from the beginning, recalling advice he received as a law student while sitting next to a business consultant on an airplane. “She said to return every phone call within 24 hours, and you will never have a shortage of clients,” he adds. “It seemed like simple advice and simple advice to follow, but it sends the message to the client that I care, and I respect their time. I believe it has had a significant impact on the success of my practice.”
