Introduction: The two things I hear most from former clients, is that they like how patient I am and how I am able to communicate the law without making things too simple or too complex. My clients hire me to get them through a difficult time in their life. I always give them the time to listen to them and make sure I understand how I can serve them in the best way. And I always make sure they understand their options under the law.

By far the best Family lawyer I’ve had the pleasure of working with and actually helping me. My strong recommendation is to stay away from the “Top” firms. Those with vanity water bottles - they don’t care about you nor your children, they drive a wedge between you and your spouse and pro-long the process as much as possible. Be aware of false promises. Demand to be bcc’d on all correspondence with opposing counsel and insist they DO NOT act on your behalf without consent. I’d go as far as demanding NO phone calls, because they do this on purpose to avoid any paper trails. Jeffrey - is ethical and genuinely cares. 99% of family lawyers couldn’t care less. Show up at each court date and make sure to hold these guys accountable. Trust but verify! Jeffrey actually cares and gives pragmatic advice. FYI another red flag - any attorney (who let’s not forget is your employee and HAS to act on your behalf / best interest) that won’t give you their Cell number doesn’t value you. They don’t even trust you to give you their number and you pay this person and “trust them” to do what’s in your and your children’s best interest. I DONT think so. It’s your livelihood at stake and relationship with your children. While to the court you are a literal docket number and to your counsel your a means to destroy a family to align their pockets and move up the ranks. Jeffrey IS NOT like any of these typical unethical lawyers the greater Chicago area - trust me! Best decision I’ve made in a very long time. I just wish I had met him earlier.

If you are in an unfortunate situation and looking for an attorney look no further. Jeff represented me on a divorce case. Not only is he the best lawyer I have ever spoken to he is extremely genuine and will go the extra mile to talk to you. Jeffrey gets results. His calm demeanor, knowledge, expertise and willingness to help is second to none. I called Jeff on a Sunday and he did not waste one second getting to work. Very reasonable priced. Honestly stop your search and call this guy. His response time is outstanding. From the bottom of my heart Thank You Jeff for all you have done!

Jeffrey has been the biggest help and really felt like my advocate during this process. I'd give him 10 stars if I could. He was flexible, patient, informative, and never made me feel less than because of the circumstances. You cannot ask for better legal assistance.

Look no more. Jeffrey is as professional as he is nice. He turned a nightmaee into a very easy process. He is interested in his clients and listens to your needs. He is easy to reach andtook care of all the paperwork. The judge was a pain (to say the least) but his professionalism and knowledge of the matter made my divorce a simple and easy situation to handle. Best of all he is much more affordale than any other lawer i contacted. He dealt with everything in person, not through some secretary. I re ommend him all heartedly. 5 stars is not enough! Thank you Jeffrey

I had the pleasure of Jeffrey representing me and he made sure it was a smooth process - despite it being contested by the other party. Jeffrey was informative, thorough and always pushed to get what I wanted. He is responsive when it counts, his calm demeanor helped me to remain even-keeled in intense moments and he advised me when I needed him every step of the way. Jeffrey is second to none and goes above and beyond to get the job done - with most times a positive outcome as the result. I will always turn to him moving forward for my legal needs when necessary. All in all Jeffrey is awesome. Reliable, knowledgeable, patient, flexible when needed and an all around great guy/attorney. I will always be grateful for his services.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    All attorneys have to complete 30 hours of education every two years to keep their license. That's the minimum--I go way beyond that. I usually attend a full-day continuing education seminar every 1 or 2 months. No lawyer has seen it all or done it all. There is always something more to learn and practice areas that every lawyer could be more knowledgeable about.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    You need to be comfortable with the attorney you hire. Comfortable with their personality, how clean or messy their office is, how they do business and their knowledge level and experience. You need meet them face to face and they should be able to answer basic questions about your case in a way that you understand without using jargon or confusing you. Finallys, remember that the best attorneys never need to pressure potential clients into hiring them.
