    Christine was wonderful to work with when I had to file Ch 7. She is very responsive and knowledgeable about the laws and procedures pertaining to filing and what to do afterwards to get yourself back on track again. I would certainly recommend her services and assistance if you need a Bankruptcy attorney.

    Christine Thurston, The attorney you should not pass on!
    Christine Thurston is a very professional,knowledgable yet personable attorney that put me at ease during our first conversation. It seems she works no matter the time of day or night and got back to me immediately! Never left me hanging or refused my calls! I couldn't be happier with her and would,and will, refer her without reservation! I've dealt with lawyers before and Christine was a pleasure to work with through the whole experience! I can honestly say,thanks to her I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel! Thank you Christine for your tireless efforts and unwavering dedication to your clients!

    Tough Cookie
    Christine resuced me from a disaster. I filed my own Chapter 13 but completely messed everything up. But I was given Christine's information from a law clerk at the Cook County Circuit Court. Christine saw me immediately abd reviewed my case. Within minutes of hiring her my case turned around and she got me on track. Christine is always available and extremely helpful. I have referred her to others in need. I felt she was a angel in disguise. I highly recommend Christine. If your looking for a lawyer who can fight for you then look no further Christine is your lawyer.

    A Million Thanks!!!
    The entire experience was (given the situation) very pleasant. Christine balanced professionalism and knowledge with a personal approach that immediately made me feel that I had made the right choice. She very swiftly got me out of a bad situation and smiled the entire time. I can't say enough good things about her and my experience. If it weren't for her, I can't imagine the mess I'd be in.

  • Lavina J. Sep 28, 2016
    I am more than satisfied with Christine, I cannot say enough good things about her. From our first consultation, I felt a huge sense of relief, and that I could stop worrying constantly. She was always truthful about the process, and I never felt like she was trying to pressure me or sell me something like other attorneys. Every aspect from beginning to end was top-notch customer service. She gives you her cell number and is always in contact. Ms. Thurston is a very kind and knowledgable individual, she really does care about her clients. She gave me a peace of mind, and I am very thankful for her. I have referred other people to her as well and they have all raved about her too.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My typical process is to first have a phone call with the potential client. In that call, I will ask questions about the person's financial situation to determine if bankruptcy is the right option for them. If they do qualify and it's a good course of action for them, I will inform them of the process and what they would need to gather in order to file. I then set up a date and time for them to come into the office.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have my Juris Doctorate in Law and also am licensed to practice law in Illinois, New Jersey and New York.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with people from all different walks of life who have one thing in common- they have fallen on hard times. Bankruptcy gives people a fresh start so they can take back their lives.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Hire someone that only practices bankruptcy. That person is going to know the law inside and out. Someone who practices multiple areas of law will probably not have the same amount of experience dealing with the issues that arise.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Does this person seem like they care about my situation? Does this person seem to want to help me? Do they act patient and willing to explain the process? Do they answer all the questions I have? Are they knowledgeable?
