Courtney Rodman is a critical problem solver with the skills to identify and advocate for the best possible solution for her clients. She enjoys working with people, and her favorite part of her job is applying her knowledge of the law to make life better for clients and their families. 

She handles various matters in family law, including drafting complex settlement agreements and allocations of parental responsibility as well as analyzing business records and corporate documents. 

Courtney attended Chicago-Kent College of Law on a full tuition scholarship as an Honors Scholar. While in law school, Courtney clerked at DWK researching, drafting pleadings and memoranda for use in family law proceedings, and writing and entering orders. In addition to her clerkship, she served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Judge Pamela Loza in the Cook County Circuit Court, where she gained hands-on experience drafting orders for pro-se litigants in parentage cases. 

As a law student, she also participated in Family Law Society, served as the President of Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, and was the Vice President of Corporate Law Society. She became an attorney with DWK immediately upon passing the Illinois bar exam. 

Courtney regularly volunteers at animal shelters to serve her community.

“I chose to practice family law because I want a career in which I can help people. In family law, I have a chance to help people navigate some of the most difficult times in their lives and advocate for their futures.”
