Amy Handler Kasallis
Attorney Amy Handler Kasallis founded the Law Office of Amy Handler Kasallis in 2006 to serve families with unique needs.

She has served as the committee chair for the Trusts & Estates Committee for Lake County Bar Association. She is also a frequent presenter on the topics of adult disabled guardianship, guardianship alternatives, and special needs planning for both parents' groups and her fellow attorneys.
