DANYA A. GRUNYK

PARTNER

Danya A. Grunyk believes that for most families, the process of litigation is destructive, expensive and not always necessary. After litigating cases for almost 30 years, Danya is committed to alternative methods of resolving disputes for individuals and families going through divorce or other family transitions. Alternative methods such as the Collaborative or Cooperative Law Process or mediation offer the benefit of allowing clients to structure the process and the outcome based on their family’s issues and needs while maintaining privacy, dignity and control. For clients who prefer traditional litigation or have legal issues that warrant litigation, the firm continues to provide litigation services. Prior to practicing law, Danya was in the corporate world for more than 10 years, and that experience enables her to bring a broader base of experience to her practice, to finances and to family law issues.

Danya received her law degree from Seton Hall University School of Law in 1987; her M.B.A. from the University of Detroit in 1981 and undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan in 1977. She is an Adjunct Professor at John Marshall Law School in Chicago teaching Family Law and related courses, presents monthly case law updates to local Illinois Family Law Attorneys, has presented and taught at various legal seminars and was certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a specialist in matrimonial law (1999-2006). Danya is a Certified Collaborative Law Professional (Fellow, Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois), a Certified Divorce Mediator (Rutgers University), a Certified Matrimonial Attorney (New Jersey Supreme Court), and an Approved Guardian ad Litem/Child Representative. Danya is also a member of the Center for International Legal Studies and a visiting professor at various law schools throughout Eastern Europe.

Danya is a member of the Du Page County Bar Association, the Chicago Bar Association, the Will County Bar Association, the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and other professional groups.
