About Matthew

Matthew Carroll strives to help clients find an equitable solution that allows couples a path to resolving their divorce and areas of conflict without the cost of drawn-out litigation. Matthew has witnessed how a mutually acceptable agreement can serve as a foundation for clients to de-couple and establish themselves as an individual once again. As a father, he helps ensure that his clients consider their children’s needs first and foremost throughout the Mediation process.

Matthew has completed certified specialized education at Northwestern University, School of Professional Studies in Civil Mediation, Divorce Mediation, and Advanced Negotiation. He has also completed the Domestic Relations Mediation Training required by the Indiana Supreme Court to be an approved Domestic Relations Mediator in the State of Indiana. Matthew is a certified Mediator with the Center for Conflict Resolution in Chicago, Illinois, where he mediates civil mediations both at Cook County Municipal Court Houses as well as at the Center for Conflict Resolution.

Before becoming a Mediator, Matthew was a professional opera singer with the Lyric Opera of Chicago for 15 years. While at Lyric, he successfully negotiated multiple contracts between the performing arts union and the administration of the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Matthew still sings when he performs the National Anthem for the Chicago Bulls.
