Whether you are in the midst of a divorce or a criminal proceeding for driving under the influence, we are equipped to assist you in protecting your rights and your best interests.

Our lawyers recognize that a negotiated solution is almost always preferable to a contentious, expensive trial. We are skilled negotiators who know how to get results, and we offer creative solutions to even the most complex legal matters. In some cases, however, negotiating may not be enough. When this happens, our attorneys have the knowledge and skills to litigate on your behalf in the courtroom. With more than 80 years of combined legal experience, we are prepared to offer the trusted guidance you need and the personal attention you deserve.

Our lawyers can help you with:

  • Many other divorce concerns


According to many mental health professionals, a divorce is one of the most stressful life events that a person can experience. Some studies even suggest that only the death of a spouse or child is more stressful than a divorce. At Goostree Law Group, our attorneys understand the sensitive nature of such cases, and we know that the process itself can be taxing.

Our lawyers know that it takes hard work, dedication, and time to resolve the issues related to your divorce. We also know that time is money. With that in mind, we will work hard on your behalf to resolve your divorce-related issues as quickly as possible without compromising your rights.


In addition to divorce, there are many other issues that are resolved in the Illinois family court system. Our lawyers are equipped to handle them all. For more than 15 years, our firm has been providing top-quality family law representation to clients in and around DuPage County. With this much experience, there is a good chance that we have handled a case similar to yours before, and we are able to put our knowledge to work in obtaining the best possible outcome for your situation.

The family lawyers at Goostree Law Group handle a full range of family law concerns including domestic violence concerns, prenuptial agreements, civil unions, paternity, and legal separations. No matter what type of issue you are dealing with, we will assist you in exploring your available options and making the best decisions for yourself and your loved ones.



Goostree Law Group also offers quality criminal defense services to clients throughout the region. Our lawyers understand that a criminal conviction can change your life forever. Depending on the nature and the severity of the charges against you, you may be facing prison time, costly fines, and other serious penalties. A conviction will also remain a part of your permanent record, possibly making it harder for you to get a job, find housing, or access educational opportunities.

Whether you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI), drug possession, domestic battery, or theft, our skilled attorneys have the knowledge and experience to help you protect your rights. Our firm will negotiate with prosecutors when appropriate to reduce or eliminate the charges against you, but we are not afraid to go to trial if necessary. Contact us today so that we can get started on your case right away.

Goostree Law Group represented me for my divorce. I did not have any children but had a longer marriage and needed maintenance from my husband and there were retirement benefits and other assets to be divided. Tricia Goostree and her staff were excellent at responding to my questions and keeping me updated on information about my case. Usually my questions were answered the same day, either by phone or email. All were professional and kind during a difficult time. I have referred several friends to Tricia's office. Definitely recommend Goostree for any family law issues.

Goostree Law, Tricia Goostree is smart, dedicated, runs an efficient team of employees who make a difference. Paulette was a blessing to be able to speak with, she understands how you feel, having had a similar experience and she always has time to up lift you!! They will fight for you and bring your divorce to a much quicker end. After 3.5 years I'd spent quite a lot in attorneys fees, but I may still be legally married, had I not made the decision I wish I'd made in the beginning! Good luck, it will get better breath!

Tricia Goostree was a fantastic counsel throughout a difficult post divorce custody situation. She made herself available as needed throughout the process and provided outstanding advice and prep before each mediation session. Her advice and suggestions were realistic, reasonable, and continually focused on what was best for my kids. She helped guide me through the mediation process to a successful conclusion that avoided the cost and conflict related to a court room custody battle. I would use Tricia Goostree as my lawyer again in the future without any hesitation

Jeff handled my divorce case which was a contentious one. He gave me honest guidance and was always attentive to my concerns and understanding of my stance. He was very clear on how things would be handled and always followed up to emails, court dates, etc. very quickly. The office staff was alwways pleasant. As most divorces are stressful on all involved, I always felt a sense of calm after speaking to Jeff when emotions were high

Tricia Goostree was my attorney for my divorce and some issues with my ex-husband after my divorce was final. Although I did not have a very difficult case, she was always willing to help and answered all of my questions quickly. She was mindful of my financial situation and did her best to keep cossts down. Her office staff are really nice and professional. I have recommended her and will continue to do so.
