Joshua Haid is a preeminent attorney in the field of family law and one of Chicago’s top champions for women’s rights. With nearly fifteen years of experience, Mr. Haid is a founding member and managing partner of Women's Divorce & Family Law Group by Haid and Teich, LLP, where he handles complex divorce and custody cases throughout Illinois, and sometimes, internationally.
A graduate of Georgetown University School of Law, Mr. Haid co-founded Women's Divorce & Family Law Group after being approached by a former lawyer who believed there was a need for a law firm focused on the rights of women and mothers undergoing a divorce. A corporate lawyer herself who had just experienced the stress and frustration of a divorce, she believed there needed to be a firm that was fair, aggressive when necessary, and most of all, honest and straightforward with all their clients about the entire process.
With her help, Mr. Haid set up the first law firm in Chicago to focus on women’s and mothers’ rights, which has now grown to three offices in Chicago’s downtown-loop, Lake Forest, and Lisle. As the first law firm in the Chicagoland area of its kind, Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group is highly attuned to the unique needs and challenges confronting women going through the divorce process. Since its founding, the firm has been recognized by Super Lawyers® in both 2016 and 2017 and named a 10 Best Family Law Firm by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys™. Most recently, they were featured in O, The Oprah Magazine (May 2017 edition) and Elle Magazine.
Today, Mr. Haid is widely regarded as a thought-leader in family law. He has lectured on the topics of divorce and custody and is credited with filing Illinois’ first-ever same-sex divorce. During his years practicing, he has appeared on numerous TV and radio programs to discuss trends in family law.
