Erica Minchella has been defending me in several very complicated real estate litigations over the last 5 years, and she has won EVERY SINGLE CASE! She has fought aggressively for me since day one, always thinking of my best interests and future. She is extremely knowledgeable in Illinois law.
I cannot recommend Erica Minchella highly enough. She is one of the few attorneys I have ever encountered who does her job to help others. Her fees are fair and her sense of empathy for her clients is unmatched. Erica Minchella is not only an amazing attorney, she is also an amazing person. She is one in a million and my attorney for life!
After, other attorneys we hired had failed us, through their lack of knowledge and erroneous errors. Erica stepped in, and created a defense that gave us an opportunity at justice. She is a tireless advocate for consumer rights and an expert in her field.
Large attorney firms hired by Wall Street Banks, did not intimidate her…she has a knowledge, and a conviction in defending her clients, that means business.
But the greatest impression that Erica left on me was that of Authenticity. She is a great lawyer, but an even greater person. I am grateful for the respect and kindness that she showed us, in a very vulnerable time.
She was very accessible and open-minded about any input we might have. She answered our questions professionally and ethically; I was never made to feel that I was wasting her time. She was very sensitive to our circumstances, and billed us in a fair manner.

Erica is professional, responsive, thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate, non-judgmental, honest, and more. This was the hardest decision we had to make and she helped us make an informed choice. It was a long road and she was there every step of the way. We couldn't have gotten through this ordeal without her.

I couldn't write a more glowing recommendation for Erica. Working with her was the best experience I've ever had with a lawyer. She was fair, trustworthy and pleasant. She handled my business quickly and successfully. There were no hassles or mishaps along the way. I'm now consider myself a client of hers and expect to be for the long run.

Erica is not only an outstanding lawyer, she has that extra quality that is missing in many others...she has a heart and is caring. She truly wants and will do the absolute best for her clients. She will not only go up and above but that extra 10 miles or more for her clients. Knowledgealbe, resourceful and will not stop until her clients needs are met. We cannot say enough good things about her and she is the only lawyer we totally trust and will consult and use for any and all of our needs.

Erica did a wonderful job representing me on the buy side of a commercial real estate closing. She went above and beyond through out the process and explained everything in full detail.

Erica is a top attorney that always puts the needs of her clients ahead of her own.
All you need to do is spend a few minutes talking to her on the phone or in person and you will understand what I'm saying.
Erica genuinely cares deeply for her clients and works with them to get the best outcome as possible.
I highly recommend her for anyone that is going through a real estate hardship in Chicago's North Shore.

I found Erica by searching on the Internet for distressed property attorneys. I was purchasing a home that was on the verge of foreclosure; two other home purchases were conventional sales and I wanted someone who worked more exclusively dealing with property liens. At the time, I entered a contract on a home, but was lead astray by the listing agent. Erica did a great job picking up the pieces, but I did not end up accepting the final counter offer. I entered a new contract a month later for a short sale with two liens. The process deteriorated somewhere on the sellers side. I was asked for more money, accepted, but no closing date emerged. Erica early on recommended I cancel the contract, but I really wanted that home. Months later, people on the sellers-side quit and the process needed to begin all over again. They ended up hiring Erica to represent the sellers. I was not concerned about the dual agency at all, but I canceled that contract suspecting at least 2 months before closing. I ended up closing on a home 6 weeks later with Erica representing me. Her rates were extremely fair for all the work she did for 3 contracts she worked on and 2 other homes she provided advice, and especially for the quality of expertise. She also provided me with recommendations for a property tax attorney, inspector, and broker; all did great work. All in all, Erica turned some daunting aspects of buying in this distressed property market into a tolerable experience. I am happy to have found her.

Erica was my attorney during a year-long short sale process. This was a tough situation and the guidelines were uncertain and changing, yet she always stayed on top of them and let me know how the process was progressing. She really went the extra mile to make my home purchase a great one! She is very professional, knowledgeable, and will fight to make sure her clients are taken care of.
