Dean S. Dussias stands apart from other family lawyers. Noted for taking a careful, discreet approach to cases that might otherwise prove contentious, he says, “My singular focus for clients is to get them out of the divorce process and help them move forward. Prolonged litigation does not result in a more positive outcome.” Dussias and his firm have represented entrepreneurs, executives, and other prominent clients in high profile and financially complex divorce cases in Illinois for more than 30 years, and now stand poised to expand their practice to Florida and California. “We work with our clients to develop a pragmatic, business-minded plan that’s drama free. Sometimes I have to explain to clients, early on, why it’s so important to make every effort to keep the animosity at a minimum. Ultimately, I’m saving them money with that approach, but, even more important, it’s about protecting their children from the process,” Dussias explains. “People often aren’t able to think past the current moment, when things feel so intense, to how things might be in the future. I tell them that the minute the lawyers leave, they’re going to be left to figure out the rest—birthday parties, graduations, college, parents’ weekends, weddings and all of that.”
