Attorney Don Pesce

Don Pesce received his Juris Doctorate from the IIT/Chicago-Kent College of Law in 2005. After being admitted to the Illinois Bar in 2005 and the Florida Bar in 2006, Don decided to dedicate his legal career to divorce and family law. As such, Don has been practicing in the divorce and family law arena, with an emphasis in DuPage County, for the entirety of his legal career. 

Don is a passionate and enthusiastic problem solver who loves the intellectual challenges of family law from the initial consultation to the final agreement or judicial ruling. As an experienced divorce and family law attorney, Don handles every type of case from the simple agreement to the most intricate and delicate situations with precision, persistence and care.

Don takes pride in his ability to communicate with clients. Don gives clients one-on-one attention every step of the way. He thoroughly explains the legal process from the first action to the last. Don always makes it his goal to specifically tailor an individualized strategy for his clients in order to attain a favorable outcome. This includes considering the calculation of cost-benefit analysis in every case, carefully taking into account his clients' wishes and finances simultaneously. Don has valuable experience working with clients in every financial situation, including the protection of multi-million dollar estates.

The ultimate intellectual challenge in family law is in the courtroom, which Don lives for and where he thrives. The three keys to courtroom success are preparation, preparation, and preparation. In every case, Don analyzes the facts and applies the law thoroughly in preparation for presentment to the Court before he ever steps foot from his office. At the Courthouse, his constant presence and honest, hard-working approach has earned him a reputation, amongst his peers and the judiciary, for credibility that serves his clients well.

As a result of Don’s devotion to divorce and family law, he has completed the advanced training to represent children and is Court-approved in DuPage County to serve as a Guardian ad Litem, child's representative or attorney for the child as the Court may consider appropriate. In addition, Don is also Court-approved in DuPage County to serve a Mediator to resolve custody and visitation matters.
