“It has taken me places I usually don’t go in dissolution proceedings, but most importantly, you both, I think, have witnessed some really excellent lawyering in here. These two gentlemen came up with some really out-of-the-box ideas to get this dispute resolved for the two of you. I know where you guys–how you guys got here and I know it was a tough road and I know it was hard for both of you because things didn’t go the way you planned. That is obvious. But it took a long time, but I think the way this thing was resolved was really, really bright, good lawyering, so I congratulate the lawyers for this, too.”
Associate Judge, DuPage County
