How Can Our Team Help?

Divorce and the personal struggles surrounding family law in Peoria IL can be challenging for anyone to handle alone. Thus, Rochford and Associates works diligently to provide you with the legal support you need. When you employ the services of our family lawyers, you can expect:

  • Asset Separation – An attorney will help divorcing spouses manage the division of their assets. This includes personal property, bank accounts, debt, real estate, etc. We ensure those we represent are fairly treated and that all assets are accounted for.
  • Custody and Visitation Negotiation – Rochford and Associates always looks out for the best interests of your children. We will first assist couples in agreeing to child custody and visitation rights. However, if an agreement can’t be met, we can represent a parent arguing their case for sole custody or otherwise.

  • Juvenile Court Representation – If children get in trouble with the law, even they need proper representation. For matters involving juvenile laws, our attorneys can help protect your child’s rights and fight for their side of a case in juvenile court.

Trusted in Illinois for Over 35 Years

“The Jim Rochford & Associates law firm was extremely helpful in resolving a very difficult and sensitive situation in a federal lawsuit against a school. Tim Cushing served as the lead attorney, and worked closely with Jim Rochford. Attorney Nick Rochford also provided very valuable counsel. On a personal level, they were responsive and easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. They were also patient, always available to answer questions, and provided objective legal advice that I knew I could trust. Their attention to detail and knowledge of laws are unsurpassed. In addition, the firm has highly professional and helpful support staff, including Deb Rochford and Mary Thomas, and a network of specialized experts that they collaborate with to provide comprehensive legal solutions. After working with this law firm, I strongly recommend them to anyone needing an extremely responsive law firm that will work tirelessly to protect their clients’ interests. They are highly respected in the legal community, and I would trust them with any legal situation – personal or business.”

Appreciative Client

“Could not have asked for a better experience! Both the attorneys and staff were extremely professional in the handling of my case. They represented me on my worker’s compensation case that was from a summer job in another state. They helped me get a great settlement and it did not take very long either. I would highly recommend Jim Rochford as an attorney for anyone. One thing that stood out about him was I truly believe he always had my best interest at heart.”

Allie Caruso

“I am somewhat late in writing this but team Rochford went above and beyond my expectations while assisting me with my fathers estate after his passing. We unfortunately had a squatter in his home during covid which we were able to successfully remove with the assistance of Tim Cushing’s letters and the PCPD. They really made us feel like family and at no point did I ever feel they were seeking to take advantage of the situation for profit. I would gladly give 6 stars!”


“I have dealt with this attorney for years and they always take care of me and my family. I highly recommend this company for all injury cases. They go above and beyond. 5 stars.”

“Tim Cushing is an incredible family law attorney. He has worked effortlessly for my children. Jim Rochford and his lovely wife, Deb, have been supportive and are as invested in my children as I am. Even the paralegal, Mary, puts her heart and soul into everything. I cannot stress to you how amazing this Law Firm has been to my little family. If you are in need of an attorney, don’t hesitate to give them a call. They specialize in many different aspects of the law and will put you with an attorney who is a great fit!”
