I had been married for 30 years. and all of sudden my husband asked me for a divorce. I was in total shock and dismay to say the least. I was given Joe O'Brien's name, from a friend of a friend. He is an attorney with Roberts and Associates, P.C. From the moment I walked into Joseph O'Brien's Office I was made to feel relaxed and comfortable. He listened sincerely to my situation. He then proceeded to explain all of my options. He then outlined what the laws, conditions, and what steps we would be going through in order to finalize my divorce. And all of this was explained to me in very simple terms that I could understand. I was then told to take some time to digest it all. before I made a decision to retain Robert and associates P.C. Which at this point in time I had already decided that Joseph P. O'Brien was the lawyer that I wanted to represent me, during my divorce. I was given a business card which contained the company # his direct office #, and he handwrote his cell phone # on the card as well. And was told if I had any questions, or concerns that I could call him at anytime. And trust me I was freaking out a couple of times and took him up on it. Any time that, I emailed or called the office, I had a response from either Joe himself, or his wonderful Paralegal Kylene Loop. super expeditiously usually within an hour or 2. I really wanted closure to this chapter in my life and Joe, went above and beyond, to make this happen. Including corresponding with me up until 9 o'clock the night before my final court date, and back at it, at 6 am the morning of my court date, Just to get the last minute amendments that I threw at him. With his diligence and commitment we were able to get everything completed so I could close this chapter in my life, once and for all. If he hadn't followed through, it could very well have been weeks and weeks, if not a couple of months to get this finalized. I do not wish for anyone to have to go through a divorce. But if you do, I would 110% recommend Joseph Pierce O'Brien at the law offices of Roberts and Associates P.C. located in Wheaton Illinois.
No one wants to face the divorce and always hesitant when choosing an attorney.
My friend recommended Joe, and from the beginning til the end, Joe made the whole process less painful and very easy. Joe really listens to his client and above all he will respond to you within 5-10 minutes after sending emails or phone calls. He is very honest and really cares about his client and all I can say is thank you.
I hired Joe to handle my divorce after my first attorney turned out to be pompous, unresponsive, and overly generous with his bills.
My ex-husband has a very high conflict personality. The divorce was very simple with only custody, the sale of our marital residence, and child support at issue. The custody agreement wasn't too terrible, but the financial settlement turned out to be a nightmare. In the end, mine turned out to be a 16 month and $110k divorce.
Throughout the process, Joe was always available via phone, email, or text. He was very straightforward with his advice, and never steered me wrong when advising me about our settlement. My ex-husband's attorney was horrible to deal with, but Joe was still able to work with her on a settlement with only two hours to spare before our trial.
Joe didn't bill me for all of our correspondence. And the billable hours he spent working on my case were more than fair. If anything, he under billed me. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a divorce attorney who is responsive, fair, and has no ego.
My case was messy and complicated. Joe dedicated a lot of time to my case and was always available when I needed him. He really listened to my concerns and took the time to explain the process and events so I was constantly informed. I truly felt like I was made a priority. Joe was compassionate and understanding but still a pit bull in the courtroom. I have recommended him to a few of my associates and will continue to do so. Outstanding job Joe!!!!!
Joe was extremely helpful and responsive when he worked on my legal issues pertaining to custody judgement and support. He always kept me informed via email and phone and was conscious about the hours he billed on my work. I would highly recommend Joe for anyone looking for Family Law help in the DuPage & Cook county area.
This lawyer and his firm fight for their clients like no other! They have the best communication skills and are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. SO glad he is helping me protect my children and get my life back on track.
Joe was recommended to my husband and I by a friend. She raved about his performance on her husband's case. I trusted her and hired him. WOW, Joe was not only an outstanding atterney but he was nurturing to my husband and I with care to alleviate our stress concerning our case. He gave us sthreght. No matter what happened, I KNEW HE WOULD FIGHT!! Well, he did what needed to be done and we won our battle. I highly recommend Joe, not only for his ability but more for his character. Ruth Babb
I am a client of Joe O'Brien. From the moment I first spoke with him I had a feeling he was a results man and I was correct.
He has been very professional and led me through the process of what to expect in a way that was understandable.
Joe also let me make the final decisions without me feeling like I "had" to make them his way or someone else's way. That was much appreciated.
My case goes back quite a few years and I have already seems results in a few
Months. Thank you Joe!
Again, if you're looking for a great family attorney, Joes your man!!!!
Joe was a pleasure to work with. He treated me as if he was a long time friend- he was considerate, always available for questions or concerns, compassionate, as well as knowledgeable with the legal system. He was constantly in touch with me, whether it was via email or by phone. Working with Joe was stress free and he assisted in making the divorce process a smooth one.
My mom, who had previously used the practice, was the one who had recommended Joe to me. I had believed I was only going to hire Joe to write up a custody agreement for my child's father to sign and be done - quick and easy. Almost 10 months later, I was exhausted and out of patience but Joe was a rock throughout my entire experience.
Joe was always available via phone or email. He responded to any questions or requests almost immediately and thoroughly. Any and all questions were answered fully and honestly. He did not give me false hope or try to sell me on something that was not in my and my daughter's best interest. He listened and never made me feel rushed or like I was wasting his time. He constantly held himself to a higher standard and acted in a professional manner at all times. He came to court fully prepared and if I was not needed at court he filled me in on what had happened (probably) the second he walked out the door.
The opposing counsel was difficult, to say the least, but Joe kept his cool at all times. He is truly a good person and only wants the best for his clients. This could have been a miserable time for me and Joe actually made the first year of my daughter's life an amazing experience. I was able to keep my peace of mind and my daughter and I ended up getting more than what we asked for in the original paperwork - written up almost a year ago. I cannot thank Joe enough and would strongly recommend him!
