Eva Matela Kogut


Eva Kogut practices exclusively in the area of family law, including but not limited to, prenuptial agreements, post-nuptial agreements, child support matters, child custody, parenting time/visitation, property division, domestic violence, post-divorce issues such as enforcement and modifications and complex litigation.

With a commitment to helping her clients achieve the best possible results in their personal circumstances, Eva addresses how each client’s unique family challenges may be resolved and what each path may look like by educating her clients on the different approaches available. She helps them understand the benefits, risks, and costs of each approach to best meet their unique needs.

Many of Eva’s clients prefer to stay out of court, and she believes that the collaborative process is a good alternative to the traditional divorce process. Applying her litigation experience, supported by on-going education, she sees a consistent pattern: a less painful settlement process truly helps clients move forward in a way they chose and not in an arrangement imposed upon them by an impartial judge.

As a trained mediator, Eva believes that mediation can be an effective process for resolving divorce and family law issues in a manner that allows clients to maintain control over the process. Additionally, she handles process consultations, designed for those who are considering divorce via mediation.

Eva began her career in the demanding and litigious area of personal injury law. She was instrumental in helping clients negotiate settlements while becoming well versed in the areas of personal injury and medical malpractice.

Eva speaks fluent Polish, serving Chicago’s extensive Polish-speaking community in addressing all their family law issues.


Eva was recognized by Chicago Daily Law Bulletin on their 2022 Top Women in Law list for her commitment to the advancement of women in the legal field and improving the divorce experience of her clients. The award honors the most inspiring women in Chicago’s legal industry who emphasize mentorship of other women in the field and are successful in the legal community.

Beginning in 2018, Eva has been selected annually by her peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America list in the areas of family law, mediation and collaborative law. She is also named the 2021 Chicago Lawyer of the Year in Collaborative Law: Family Law and Family Law: Mediation.

Eva is proud to have been named to the Illinois Super Lawyers list since 2017 and the Illinois Leading Lawyer list since 2014. These distinguished lists are reserved for fewer than five percent of the lawyers in Illinois and recognize those who have attained a high degree of recognition and professional achievement. She was also featured on the 2023 and 2024 Super Lawyers Illinois Top 50 Women list.

In 2015, Eva was also recognized by the Chicago Law Bulletin for the “40 Under Forty: 40 Illinois Attorneys Under 40 to Watch.” Each year, the publication evaluates hundreds of peer nominations from the Illinois legal community to identify the most talented and well-respected attorneys working in the industry.
