  • (1888PressRelease) August 06, 2016 - Chicago, Illinois :  Chicago Divorce Attorney Michael C. Craven has been recently named the new Treasurer for The Lilac Tree, an organization whose mission is to provide education, support and access to women contemplating divorce or at any stage of divorce process.  The Lilac Tree has been a resource and safe haven for those facing divorce and separation in Illinois since 1990. The passionate Staff, Board, Volunteers, Committees and Referral Panel members are dedicated to providing better futures for those going through a very difficult time in their lives.   

    Michael began his involvement with The Lilac Tree by volunteering over 10 years ago and soon thereafter was invited to be a speaker at different workshops. More recently, Michael was asked to moderate "Divorce University™" in November 2015 which is a one-day conference, covering the legal, financial and emotional aspects of divorce in Illinois, held bi-annually. The Fall 2016 Divorce University™ will be their 35th anniversary.

    After displaying his commitment to the organization he was honored to be asked to join the Board of Directors and with his financial background as a CPA, LLM and in addition to being a family and divorce lawyer, has now accepted the position of Treasurer. "Over the last decade or so it has a pleasure to volunteer and now serve on the Board of Directors at such a worthwhile organization that makes a difference to so many people," Craven said. "I am proud to be part of such an organization that provides better futures for those going through a divorce or separation". The Executive Director Lorraine Murphy added, "Michael has been a wonderful volunteer to The Lilac Tree and we can always count on him to step forward and help with whatever task is needed. He is 100% committed and a true asset to this organization". 

    Michael believes people going through a divorce are looking for someone who can provide both the emotional support needed as well as listen and understand their point of view. When his clients describe him they use words such as "calm", "empathetic" and "trustworthy" which he believes helps them feel at ease and make smart decisions.  To learn more about Craven and his family law practice visit his website.  Michael's office is located in Chicago with suburban locations serving clients throughout the greater Chicago area.
