About the Law Office of Elizabeth Lidd Factor, P.C.

Our History

Elizabeth Lidd Factor had been practicing family law for nearly twenty years when she established the Law Office of Elizabeth Lidd Factor, P.C. in 2005. She had gained a wealth of family law experience while working at other private firms and as a Cook County Administrative Hearing Officer for child support matters, and believed it was time to offer the benefit of those experiences to her own clients. As the head of her own firm, Elizabeth knew she would have the freedom to personalize her approach to each client's case and devote as much time to each client as she felt they needed. Conveniently located in La Grange, the firm serves clients in Cook, DuPage, and Will Counties.

Our Practice Philosophy

Personalized Attention

At the Law Office of Elizabeth Lidd Factor, P.C., our priority is to give you the best experience possible as you go through major life transitions. Although we have handled hundreds of cases over the years, we see every case, and every client, as unique. We don't believe in a “cookie-cutter” approach to family law. We take the time to listen to you, to understand your needs, and explain how Illinois law applies to your specific circumstances. We'll discuss your options with you, along with their likely outcomes, so that you'll be in control of the decisions that affect your life.

Some firms advertise that they practice family law, but do so little of it that they don't keep on top of changes in the law, putting their clients at risk. Other firms accept so many family law cases that they can't give them the attention they deserve. We deliberately manage our caseload so that we are current with legal developments, and have the time and resources to offer each client our best work.


When you're going through a divorce or other family law matter, you're certain to have a lot of questions and concerns. We know nothing is more frustrating than needing answers and not being able to get them. We respond quickly to your calls and e-mails, usually within 24 hours. We're proactive when it comes to keeping you informed, because we understand that not knowing what to expect or what's going on in your case can be a huge source of anxiety.

Cost-Effectiveness and Efficiency

We're not the least expensive family law firm in the Chicago area, but we offer our clients great value. Value means more than cost--it means getting the best service for what you are paying. Decades of experience allow us to help you achieve the best outcome for your family, and give you the support you need, in a cost-effective way. We know that for most people going through a divorce, the cost of the process is a concern. We make decisions together with you, bearing in mind not only your goals but your resources, so you won't have unpleasant surprises when you look at your bill.

Compassionate, Strong, Effective Advocacy

When going through a personal legal crisis, many people think they need an “aggressive” attorney to effectively fight for them. In reality, an aggressive approach inflames hostility, which leads to more fighting and a higher legal bill. At the Law Office of Elizabeth Lidd Factor, P.C., our focus isn't on being aggressive, it's on your satisfaction. That means helping you feel good about the outcome of your case, preserving your resources, and minimizing your stress. Our primary goal is for you to have the life you envision for you and your family after our work together is finished.
