William A. McSurley

Junior Associate


William A. McSurley is a junior associate at Badesch Abramovitch, where he dedicates his career to making divorce and custody litigation expeditious for clients and safe for children. His work ethic and vigor as a Chicago family lawyer are invaluable qualities in this often contested area of law.

William graduated at the top of his class, summa cum laude, with his bachelor’s degree and Highest Honors from the University of Illinois, Chicago. While at the University of Illinois, William was awarded a scholarship for pre-law students and was selected for induction in Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest and most esteemed academic honor society.

William then went on to graduate from the University of Illinois College of Law, magna cum laude, with his Juris Doctorate degree. While in law school, William was selected by faculty to be a mentor for law students at the university’s Family Advocacy Clinic, and he was voted President of the Family Law Society. He also won a prestigious internship with the U.S. Department of Justice and interned with judges of the family law division of the Circuit Court of Will County, Illinois and the Juvenile Court of Denver, Colorado. These internships have given William unique insight into the factors that come into play in the judicial decision-making process, a definite advantage when it comes to contested custody, divorce, or other family law matters.
