Clark & Steiner, Ltd.
Attorneys At Law

(847) 604-8300

In 2012, Mary J. Clark and Valerie I. Steiner established the law firm of Clark & Steiner, Ltd., which is focused exclusively on matrimonial and family law in Lake, Cook, and McHenry Counties. Prior to establishing Clark & Steiner, Ms. Clark and Ms. Steiner worked at one of the largest family law firms in the country – Ms. Clark was the only female equity partner. Ms. Clark and Ms. Steiner chose to leave the large firm environment to form Clark & Steiner, as a boutique practice to better serve the individual needs of each client. The quality of our analysis, advocacy and work product rivals what is expected of big firms.  At the same time, we provide the personalized service of small firms.


At Clark & Steiner, our ability to develop a partnership with our clients distinguishes us from other law firms and allows us to develop the most effective strategies for each client’s individual situation. Communication is a core principle at Clark & Steiner and decisions are made with our clients after we ensure our clients' understanding of their legal options and possible outcomes. At Clark & Steiner, our clients have direct access to the attorneys who represent them; unlike in larger firms where clients are often shuffled between several attorneys.

Clark & Steiner’s attorneys aggressively advocate, litigate and negotiate on behalf of their clients’ interests and draw from their vast experience and depth of knowledge to achieve their clients’ desired results. We are compassionate with our clients and sensitive to the delicacy of the issues our clients face under these difficult circumstances. Our method of practice has proven to be exceedingly successful. As a testament to the confidence our clients have in our practice, Clark & Steiner’s clientele is primarily comprised of referrals from former clients and colleagues. We also have received referrals from clients of our opposing counsel. We take pride in the high level of service our firm provides to our clients and look forward to continuing our success on your behalf.
