Steve Lake

Attorney, divorce and family law

Steve Lake knows what to do when good love goes bad.

For 30 years, the senior partner at Lake Toback in Chicago has represented a long list of celebrity clients — professional athletes and media stars and their spouses — in divorce and family law cases.

He’s been featured as a legal expert on CNN, NBC, MSNBC, FOX, and Good Morning America. And he’s written two books: “Hearts & Dollars: How to Beat the High Cost of Fall In and Out of Love,” and “Rematch: Winning Legal Battles with Your Ex.”

Currently, Lake lives in Chicago’s River North neighborhood with his wife Jana, and their dog, Bacon.
