Angela Buttitta joined Birnbaum, Haddon, Gelfman & Arnoux, LLC in 2013 as a partner in the law firm’s main office in Chicago. In 2014, she opened a new branch office of the firm located in DuPage County. For more than 10 years, Angela has focused on family law and other related areas of law.

She has received two honors for being among the top Illinois lawyers age 40 and under. Chicago Magazine and Illinois Super Lawyers named her a Rising Star, a designation reserved for only 2.5 percent of all Illinois lawyers. Leading Lawyers, a division of Law Bulletin Publishing Company, named Angela to its 2015 inaugural list of Emerging Lawyers. That honor is limited to less than 2 percent of the state’s lawyers. The American Institute of Family Law Attorneys has also named Angela to its exclusive 2016 list of the “10 Best” Attorneys for Illinois for Client Satisfaction in the practice area of family law.

In addition to classic divorce litigation dealing with financial matters, Angela actively represents clients in child custody disputes and paternity cases. She also assists both buyers and sellers in real estate closings and transactions. She is a licensed Illinois Real Estate Managing Broker.

As an alternative to litigation and to facilitate amicable resolutions, Angela frequently counsels clients in the pursuit of premarital, postnuptial, joint custody and divorce settlement agreements.

She is qualified to handle a variety of difficult matters and relishes unique cases that require an innovative strategy and a bold approach. She seeks to find a positive resolution to any dilemma and works aggressively on behalf of her clients. Currently she practices family law and real estate law in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, Will and McHenry counties.

Angela hails from a family of attorneys, including a sister and brother who actively practice in Illinois. In the words of her brother, Dominic, Angela takes pride in resolving matters completely – a “closer” in both business and in life.
