Bradford & Gordon, LLC, an elite law firm focusing exclusively on divorce, matrimonial, and family law, is pleased to announce the opening of its newest office location in Elmhurst.

Since opening the doors of its first office in downtown Chicago, Bradford & Gordon has seen tremendous growth in both Cook County and DuPage County.

The new Elmhurst office will provide a convenient location for the practice's suburban clients, as well as create opportunities for additional growth in DuPage, Will, McHenry and Kane counties.

"Elmhurst has a wonderful small-town character in which neighbors care about neighbors and personal connections matter. That is exactly the kind of relationship Bradford & Gordon strives to create with our clients -- one in which the client is treated like a person, not a transaction," said Derek Bradford, founding partner of Bradford & Gordon and an Elmhurst resident. "Elmhurst's close-knit community, along with its thriving business environment, makes it an ideal fit for our practice."

The new office of Bradford & Gordon, LLC will be led by Derek Bradford, who is recognized in the Chicago area as an experienced and innovative advocate in all areas of family law. Bradford has successfully litigated cases involving valuations of closely-held corporations, complex financial issues including tax issues, maintenance, paternity, child support, custody, and visitation issues. In addition to his experience in matrimonial law, he worked as a tax consultant prior to beginning his legal career and he frequently utilizes his background in tax law to assist clients with divorce planning. In 2012, Bradford was recognized by the Chicago Lawyer Magazine as one of the top "40 Under 40" attorneys working in Illinois and is a frequent lecturer with the Illinois Institute of Continuing Legal Education as part of the Family Law education programs as well as lectures for the Chicago Bar Association. Perhaps most importantly, Bradford approaches each case with equal parts legal acumen and compassion, helping his clients to understand their options during what is often a very traumatic time in their lives.

"As a resident of DuPage County, I look forward to providing compassionate, skilled legal guidance to the people of this community," Bradford said. "Divorce can be an incredibly difficult process, but I believe that we can help our clients through it most effectively when we serve them as both caring neighbors and as knowledgeable, experienced litigators."

Bradford & Gordon, LLC's newest office is located at 340 W. Butterfield Road, Suite 2A, Elmhurst, IL 60126.

The firm also has an office in downtown Chicago at 30 N. LaSalle St., Suite 3100, IL 60602.
