Willie Mack, Ph.D.,CDFA, AAMS

I provide the client and attorney with data that show the financial effect of any given proposed divorce settlement. I interview clients in order to collect verifiable financial data, help develop a workable budget, and determine the costs of their children’s education.

My professional background includes that of divorce mediator, divorce financial planner, and certified divorce financial analyst, and educator (http://www.mackfinancialeducator.com/about.html).

ADR Experience

I participated in hundreds of conflict resolution conferences that included disputes among the school personnel and parents, among family members about the education of their children, and between divorcing spouses.


Mediation addresses many fears; I focus on helping couples to reach equitable agreements. My approach reduces many fears because it is transparent, less costly, and less time-consuming than litigation. I focus on the impact made on children.


My degrees include: the Ph.D. and B.A.,the University of Illinois at Chicago; M.Ed.,Loyola University; M.P.A., Roosevelt University. My academic certificates include the Certificate of Advanced Study, the University of Chicago and Reading Supervision, the University of Illinois at Chicago.
