| Practice Description: |
A practitioner in the area of family law for nearly three decades, Dean Dussias has built his reputation by representing entrepreneurs, executives and other prominent clients in high profile and financially complicated cases with a careful, discreet approach that solves problems and mitigates risks.
With a focus on providing the highest degree of professionalism and excellence in the area of family law, Dean helps clients and their families navigate this difficult and emotional area of the law with dignity, compassion and privacy. This means helping clients negotiate when possible, but also being prepared to litigate when necessary.
Because his goal is to solve disputes in a rational and cost-effective manner ensuring privacy among his clients, Dean often recommends alternatives to costly court proceedings, such as mediation and collaborative divorces.
An accomplished speaker and author, Dean gives lectures and writes articles for legal publications about the latest developments in family law. He has been a faculty member and lecturer at the Illinois Institute of Continuing Legal Education (IICLE) and often appears in the media talking about divorce related topics. He is a member in good standing with the Chicago Bar Association (CBA), the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) and the American Bar Association (ABA).
Dean quickly established a reputation as a top resource for high-net-worth individuals, garnering awards and honors for his work. He is regularly recognized as one of the Chicago area's leading family law attorneys. His honors include selection as one of Illinois' "Super Lawyers," "Leading Lawyers," and "Best Lawyers in America." Dean also has an AV (which is the highest rating) by Martindale-Hubbell. He was selected in 2002 as one of "40 under 40 attorneys to watch in Illinois." He is fluent in the Greek language and is a member and director of the Hellenic Bar Association (HBA).
