About Our Firm


Wheaton Based but Nationally Available

The Law Firm of Erin N. Birt, P.C. has been based in Wheaton for over 14 years and we serve legal clients primarily in DuPage, Kane, Will, and Cook County while serving many other counties as well virtually. We also provide virtual mediation services nationwide to address the increase in relocations and interstate custody issues.

Our Team's Experience & Background

Our attorney has over 20 years of experience in divorce, family law, mediation and mental health services; our paralegal has over 15 years experience in accounting and paralegal services; and our assistant has a paralegal degree and many years of experience in contract drafting and customer services. Our legal team's unique backgrounds in mental health services, accounting, and customer service enables us to provide our clients with high end concierge legal and mediation services so our clients thrive post divorce or separation. Not only will we handle your family law case or mediation case, we will put you in touch with the best professionals in the industry for child specialties, financial planning, and divorce support.

We get up every morning to help people through extremely difficult emotional, financial, and legal issues. We love to hear how our clients are thriving after divorce as many still rely on us and the professionals we connected them with that helped them through their divorce or parenting issue. 

The Firm's Objectives & Goals

Our firm provides a supportive and respectful environment where parties can openly discuss their wants, needs, and expectations throughout the legal process.

The firm's objectives are:

  • Promote and educate interested parties about the alternatives to courtroom litigation;
  • Enable and empower each client to negotiate and create resolutions to family matters that consider and address their particular relationship, unique family, special family traditions, assets and liabilities, and hopes for the future;
  • Commit to restorative divorce services to guide our clients to a place of peace and resolution.

Convenient Location and Several Payment Options

Our offices are conveniently located in Wheaton, Illinois next to the DuPage County Judicial Center and DuPage County Divorce Courthouse. Click here to find additional information about our location and how to easily find us.

We understand budgeting for a family law case is difficult.  For the convenience of our clients, we accept all major credit cards for the personal financing of your case, checks and cash should you wish to pay upfront for your legal or mediation services, and for those that seek to pay for services over time, we accept payment plans via ClientCredit + Affirm.
