Stephen W. Vertucci

As one of the partners at The Harris Law Firm, Attorney Stephen W. Vertucci is an example of the diversity and experience that make up The Harris Family Law team. Having grown up in an Italian and Hispanic family in the suburbs of Chicago, Mr. Vertucci worked in his family’s restaurant and went on to honorably serve in the United States Navy during the first Gulf war in the 1990’s. Following his graduation from the University of Illinois and Chicago-Kent College of Law, Mr. Vertucci has been a felony prosecutor, certified mediator, and trial attorney before joining The Harris Law Firm in 2007.

Licensed to practice law in Illinois, Arizona and Colorado, Mr. Vertucci employs all of his past experience in his work with clients and their loved ones. He possesses a deep understanding of the emotional needs of families in difficult legal situations, and he fights to protect them from emotional harm while working on their behalf. He mediates cases to provide the best chance at cooperative solutions, but possesses necessary litigation skills should they become necessary. Mr. Vertucci earns his client’s trust by providing straight forward legal advice so clients have a clear understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their case so they can make informed decisions about how to proceed.
