Eric Frobish is a Partner Attorney at our firm. He was born in Pontiac, IL, raised first in Livingston County, and then in Grundy County on his family's farm, where he learned a wide variety of skills, as well as the value of hard work and independence. This background has helped him immeasurably in his law practice, both in relating to and understanding his clients and their circumstances, and also in regard to demanding nature of family law work.
Eric graduated from Gardner-South Wilmington High School and attended college at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, where he studied in the General Engineering program with a minor in Economics and graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Agricultural Economics. He was a member of Phi Chapter of Sigma Pi fraternity at the University of Illinois, where he became President after one semester in the fraternity and helped oversee a period of major growth, development and success of the chapter. He subsequently spent over ten years on his fraternity's Alumni Board of Directors, where he helped manage and oversee fundraising for and the purchase of the undergraduate chapter's current house in Urbana, IL.
While attending law school at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago from 1993-1996, Eric worked as an intern at the LaSalle County, IL States Attorney's Office and at the Legal Aid Bureau in Chicago. After graduation, began his law career as an Assistant State's Attorney in Livingston County, IL from 1996-1999, where he handled felony, misdemeanor, traffic and civil matters, and where he developed his comfort and poise in the courtroom. Prior to his time at Cortina, Mueller & Frobish, P.C., Eric had his own general solo practice from 1999-2001 at the Law Office of Eric P. Frobish in Dwight, IL. Here, he first began handling family law cases and found that he was uniquely well-suited to and successful in that particular area of law.
Eric has been with our firm at Cortina, Mueller & Frobish, P.C. since 2001, and has been a partner since 2009. During his time with this office, he has handled, and continues to handle, all the firm's family law work, as this is his main area of focus. In addition to family law cases, he has also handled a variety of others over the years, such probate/wills/powers of attorney, guardianships, real estate, criminal/traffic, and more.
Eric is also a Certified Guardian Ad Litem in the State of Illinois, and is frequently appointed by the courts to investigate, report and testify on cases such as child custody and visitation disputes, guardianships, removal cases, and other matters involving minor children and disabled adults. In addition to this, he is also a Family Law Mediator and certified in the Twelfth and Thirteenth Judicial Circuits, which cover Will, Grundy, LaSalle and Bureau counties in Illinois.
Some of the types of cases that Eric handles include:
Eric resides in Morris with his wife of nearly 20 years and his three children. He is a long-time member of several fraternal/service organizations, including the Knights of Columbus - where he is a 4th Degree member - and the Lions Club. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, hunting, camping and working in his yard and gardens. He is very pleased to be able to work as a family law attorney in the area where he grew up and has lived nearly all of his life, and with the people in the area communities.
