While The Gitlin Law Firm’s main office is in Woodstock, we regularly handle cases in Lake County. The court house for Lake County is located in Waukegan, IL. The divorce courts are on the main building side of the courthouse. Prior to Covid-19, lawyers had to appear in court for routine court appearances. Currently, Lake County and the collar counties all provide our motion calls to be handled remotely and in Lake County this is done through Zoom.
