Mary Taradash grew up in the ethnic neighborhoods of Chicago, speaking Spanish and Lithuanian as well as English. After completing college, Mary worked for the State of Illinois Office of Education as Ombudsman, investigating and mediating education-related issues throughout the state. She completed graduate studies in communications and organizational psychology and thereafter worked in planning and evaluation for the Illinois Law Enforcement and the Dangerous Drugs Commissions in Chicago. However, it was her drive to make a difference for people that compelled Mary to enter law school.
After more than 25 years of focus on family law throughout the metropolitan Chicago area, Mary now concentrates her practice in social security disability appeals and workman’s compensation. She views her current efforts as a natural extension of family practice, where the issues often included the impact of injuries, disability and financial distress.
Mary and her husband and law partner, Randy, call McHenry County home and established their practice 33 years ago to serve northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. They have two grown children and are both committed to quality in the practice of law, social justice and making a difference to the community, its people and the environment.
