A graduate of the Yale Law School, Dina Warner is a highly experienced attorney and litigator who advises clients in all areas of family and matrimonial law. Ms. Warner regularly works on matters involving complex estate plans, closely held family businesses, sophisticated corporate structures, executive compensation, appeals, and prenuptial agreements.

Prior to joining Berger Schatz in 2003, Ms. Warner practiced as a securities litigator for one of the world’s most well-regarded business law firms and as in-house counsel for a premiere global financial services company.  As a result of her unique background, Ms. Warner is able to leverage her deep knowledge base, honed over years of experience in commercial litigation, for the benefit of her clients. 

As a direct result of her litigation experience, Ms. Warner also understands that her clients can benefit from the flexibility, creativity and privacy that is provided in various forms of alternate dispute resolution.  Over the course of her 15 years with Berger Schatz LLP, Ms. Warner has developed a thriving mediation and collaborative law practice where she combines her superior strategic and financial acumen with a commitment to finding innovative and quantitatively oriented solutions for clients.

Yet, Ms. Warner understands that the alternative dispute resolution mechanisms of mediation and collaborative law are not appropriate for every case. Where litigation is advisable, Ms. Warner also provides invaluable strategic oversight, direction and guidance for her clients. Working closely with other experienced litigators at Berger Schatz, Ms. Warner has led teams to some of the firm’s most significant trial and appellate court successes throughout the state.

Ms. Warner is a Fellow of the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

Ms. Warner has been continually named to the Illinois Super Lawyers list since 2012 and recognized in the Leading Lawyers network since 2009.
