Anna’s practice focuses on family law, elder law, estate planning, and probate/trust matters.  In the area of family law she represents clients with a broad range of legal issues, to include divorce and legal separation, maintenance, child support, physical placement and custody issues, property division and complex division issues including retirement and business assets, paternity actions, grandparent visitation, same-sex litigation matters, litigation cases involving never-married parties, elder law divorce matters, and pre and post-nuptial marital property agreements.

She is well versed in elder law matters; most especially in legal situations involving guardianships, conservatorships, elder abuse issues and family law matters that involve parties with long-term care needs or public benefits considerations.

Anna also guides clients through estate planning issues involving wills, trusts and powers of attorney.  Additionally, she has represented clients in probate and trust administration matters, as well as probate and trust litigation cases.


Anna’s client base is diverse, and they come from many walks of life.  While a first year law student at DePaul University College of Law in Chicago, Anna capitalized on her social work background and began volunteering at the Chicago Legal Clinic, a non-profit organization that provides legal services to clients who are not eligible for no cost legal aid services, but who do not have the resources to pay for private counsel.  She was subsequently awarded a Public Interest Law Initiative fellowship and continued to provide legal services to an underserved population of clients at the Clinic through the remainder of her law school career.  She was hired by the Clinic as an attorney upon her graduation from DePaul.  While employed at the Clinic, she represented clients in various types of family law matters, matters involving domestic violence issues and at disability hearings before administrative law judges of the Social Security Administration.  Upon transitioning to private practice in the Chicago area, Anna continued to represent individual clients in various family law matters, as well as individual and business clients in commercial litigation cases.

Upon her relocation to Wisconsin in 2009, Anna continued to represent clients in a variety of family law matters, and she expanded her practice to include the representation of individuals and corporate fiduciaries in probate and trust administration and litigation matters, estate planning and elder law matters.  As a dually licensed attorney, Anna has assisted Illinois attorneys and clients with Wisconsin legal matters and has assisted Wisconsin attorneys and clients with matters that require expertise in Illinois law.
