Beth McCormack Recharge

The Recharge | Shifting the Approach to Family Law

She has been nominated as a “Top 50 Women Super Lawyer”, ”Top 100 Super Lawyer”, and Crain’s Chicago media named her “Most Influential Woman Lawyer.”

Compassionate and empathetic are not words one would typically use to describe a Family Law Attorney, but Beth McCormack is exactly that!

She is an equity partner at Beerman LLP, practicing family law, litigation, mediation, and collaborative law.

Her practice is founded on compassion and empathy, and she recognizes her responsibility to be aware of each person’s needs to seek the most appropriate solution for them. Approaching it as problem-solving and collaborating, helps families remain in control of their futures.

Her work in the Alternative Dispute Resolution area has demonstrated that attorneys can really help people think about their goals and negotiate from that platform rather than one where there’s only winning and losing. She has softened the litigation approach, remembering that these are families and they remain families after divorce. She has also shifted the mindset for women, advocating for her clients to seek support and strength from professionals or their tribe in financial empowerment and mental health concerns.

“So every case I have, I recommend a therapist or a coach. A therapist helps you kind of unpack what brought you here and a coach helps you go forward. Sometimes people need both.I also send every client to someone Like you to help empower them financially because all too often, it’s very stereotypical, but all too often women are scared of money.” – Beth McCormack
