5.0 stars 9 totalReview Shana Vitek
I am a litigation partner in a national law firm, so I am a fairly sophisticated consumer of legal services. I can say without reservation that Shana is an excellent matrimonial attorney. She previously represented me in my divorce and more recently in my ex-wife's motion to increase child support and raise a cap on support that was negotiated in the marital settlement agreement. Shana successfully handled the matter in a highly competent and cost-effective manner. Her knowledge of the law in the jurisdiction and specific experience before this particular judge proved to be invaluable. In sum, I was highly satisfied with the outstanding quality of the legal representation that I received, and I would highly recommend Shana for any divorce or post-decree matter in Chicago or the surrounding counties.

Shana has been supporting me for many years through what should have been a simple divorce - it became increasingly dragged out (through no one's fault but the respondent), and Shana has been wonderful through it all. I assumed all attorneys know what they are doing, know the law well - based on the encounters I have had over the last 5 years, I know how fortunate I am to have found and hired Shana. She knows her stuff, she knows when to push and just when to lay off a little. She has more patience than I do, which certainly helped me out when I needed to put things into perspective! Shana is a wonderful attorney, and a good person as well.

Ms. Vitek has handled several high profile referrals from my office. She has also done a prenuptial agreement and helped me work through an extremely difficult custody case of my own. She is the consummate professional who always takes the time to listen patiently and calm down what can be very difficult and volatile situations. Unlike some other high profile firms she doesn’t make promises she can’t keep and above all she never loses her cool. When she needs to be tough she rises to the occasion without difficulty.

Shanna L. Vitek represented my interests in divorce proceedings in 2004 and its followup to ensure the provisions of the divorce decree were met. For more than a decade, Shana has offered sound counsel and effective strategies that informed me of my rights/options and engaged me in the process of securing successful judgements to address resistance to court-ordered maintenance payments.
Her expertise in family law matters is notable. Her persistence and compassion in working toward positive client-focused solutions is unmatched. Shana Vitek epitomizes the value the legal profession places on client representation and advocacy. Without reservation, I recommend her to those who can benefit from her commitment to family practice in the law.

Ms. Vitek has been amazing during a very difficult time for myself and two children. She understood my concerns and headed off the most difficult of situations. I felt truly protected from a very hostile situation and opposing consul that continued to attack at every turn. Without hesitation I would recommend her as she is competent, thorough and understands the client on many levels.

Shana Vitek made me feel comfortable in the inherently uncomfortable situaiton of divorce/legal annulment . She explained all of my options thoroughly with the utmost respect for my well-being throughout the entire process. She is extremely knowledgeable and can navigate the intricacies of family law with ease and dignity on behalf of her clients. I cannot imagine feeling more comfortable working with any other lawyer for such a personal matter.
