Kristie began her legal career as a judicial law clerk in Cook County in the Commercial Calendar of the Law Division before diving into the practice of law with an established small law firm in Lake County focusing on all aspects of domestic relations and family law. Kristie gained valuable litigation experience dividing both large and small marital estates, sifting through complex financial matters and compensation packages while also helping to resolve both complex and routine custody/parenting decision matters for her clients and their children. After nearly ten years with the firm, Kristie formed the Law Office of Kristie C. Fingerhut in 2014 in order to better serve the needs of her clients and family on her own. In 2018, Kristie and Jessica combined forces to establish FW Family Law Group LLC in order to continue to increase the level of service that they can each provide to their clients across Northern Illinois.
Kristie is frequently appointed by the court to act as a mediator for parties going through divorces or parenting disputes and she is also appointed by the court to represent children in complex family cases. This contribution gives her the enhanced ability to assist her clients that she represents as they go through the same processes. Her own personal experiences being raised in a divorced family as well as her attention to detail and compassion for her clients make her an effective advocate in whom her clients trust to represent their interests before the court in a firm, but practical way.
