    • I recommend Christopher Kennedy.
    • I hired Christopher more than 3 years ago.
    • Christopher handled my Civil Rights matter.

    i enjoyed working with Chris. He took his time in answering and explaining the answers to my question and he never acted as if I was wasting his time or my case was of no interest to him. He treated me with dignity and respect throughout the entire process. Kept me well informed on the case status and just overall a nice respectable person. I would recommend him in a heart beat.

    Chris represented our construction company in a lawsuit regarding a contract dispute. He has good knowledge of construction related matters and worked quickly during the discovery process. I thought he did a good job during questioning in the deposition process and trial. We won the case, although spent a lot of money defending ourselves. The later part was not Chris's fault. His attorney fees are very reasonable and fair. He does not nickel and dime clients for phone calls and emails. I would highly recommend Chris because he is genuine, a straight shooter and a knowledgeable lawyer. You do not get the aloof or arrogant attitude from Chris that a lot of attorneys personify.

    Chris and Lisa and everyone have been great. Chris is my 3rd lawyer for this case and I am finally getting results. It appears everything will be finalized soon to my satisfaction.

    • I recommend Christopher Kennedy.
    • I hired Christopher more than 3 years ago.
    • Christopher handled my Business matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I have worked with Chris Kennedy and his firm for six years, on both corporate issues (lawsuits, collecton issues, review of documents and writting of documents) as well as personal matters (real estate closings, wills, trust and others). I have always found Chris to be responsive to my immediate needs. He has the ability to explain the law to us in very basic terms so that we are able to understand what the issues are.
    We were involved in an out of state lawsuit that dragged on for several years. Chris worked with us here in Illinois to understand issues, as well as helping us hire local lawyers to handle the lawsuit.
    We continue to use Chris on a monthly basis after 6 years.

    Chris did a very nice job handling our case - it was an unusual issue and he took the time to research the situation thoroughly in order to take the best approach. He was very accessible and kept us up to speed as the case evolved. He was also very upfront and clear about the possible outcomes and I felt he was always working with our best interest in mind.

    • Christopher handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I've engaged Chris for a few different matters in recent years. He was always prompt in response, effective in his work, and also efficient. Efficiency translated into reasonable billing, which is important when working with professionals, I feel. I worked with Chris in several different matters, but the block below only allowed me to choose one. I only mention this to note that he's surprisingly 'wide spectrum' when it comes to both business and civil matters.
