Mr. Joshua P. Haid is one of the founding members of the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group and is now the managing Partner. He co-founded the original firm in 2009 firm after being approached by a lawyer who believed there was a need for a law firm focused on the rights of women and mothers undergoing a divorce. She, herself a corporate lawyer, had just completed and underwent the stress and frustration of a divorce, and believed there was a need for a law firm that was fair and aggressive when necessary, but most of all, honest and straightforward with all their clients about the entire process. With her help, Mr. Haid set up the first law firm in Chicago to focus on Women’s and Mothers’ rights, which has now grown to three offices in Chicago’s Downtown-Loop, Lake Forest, Lisle.  After merging with co-partner James Teich in 2014, he has oversaw the transition of the firm into one of Chicago’s fastest growing law firms dedicated solely to practice of family law.

Mr. Haid has vast knowledge EXPERIENCE

Mr. Haid has extensive experience litigating complicated divorce and custody cases throughout Illinois, including many cases with multi-jurisdictional parties (e.g. Parties in different states or different countries), and high net worth estates.  He has been recognized in Super Lawyers publication in both 2017 and 2018 as a Rising Star (honoring those exhibiting excellence in practice of law and only received by 2.5% of lawyers in Illinois), serves on the NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) Illinois Board of Directors, and has taught multiple CLEs (continuing legal education) seminars to other lawyers, including, how to litigate against and properly represent parties with mental health issues.  He has also worked on many divorces involving the LGBTQ community.  Indeed, he filed Illinois’ first same-sex divorce and has been working with members of the LGBTQ to ensure equal rights in divorce and custody cases ever since.

In addition, Mr. Haid manages many complex cases where the mental health of a party or a minor child is a primary issue in the case. Indeed, his passion for working with the mental health community as a NAMI board member provides him a unique insight into the complexities experienced by families going through not divorce and custody litigation, but that involving mental health issues as well.

Mr. Haid graduated with honors EDUCATION

Mr. Haid is a graduate of DePaul University, cum laude, with a B.A. and went onto receive his Juris Doctor From Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. He is a member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Chicago Bar Association, and the Illinois State Bar Association.
