The senior attorney who handled my divorce several years ago added Anique Drouin to my case to help with a recent child support issue. This saved me money and introduced me to a female attorney who I trust and admire.
Anique was professional, worked as quickly as possible, and gave excellent advice. Even better, she was "real," focusing not just on legal and financial ramifications, but also on how any given action might influence the ongoing relationship with my ex-spouse. At every turn, I knew her primary interests were achieving justice and ensuring that my children receive proper care and support.
Anique was diligent in finding and interpreting the facts of my case. She brainstormed with me about creative options for reaching an agreement. She even observed body language (of both a judge and my ex-spouse) and factored that information into our approach to reaching a resolution.
Should the need arise, I will turn to Anique again in the future. I recommend her highly.
Anique is a tough lawyer. She stood up to the craziness of my former spouse without waivering. She gave me the opportunity to work on aspects of my paperwork to save my retainer, which helps with a kid in college. She is very responsive via email and phone. She answers all questions based on current practices in DuPage Cook. That was helpful since I live in Cook County.
I did have any disagreements or problems with her. She spoke to my former spouses attorney and negoitated a fair settlement. She really looked out for my best interest, and I felt confident with her representing me. She never went against my wishes, and she understood my emotional state as I worked to end my marriage. Her advice was valuable and saved me time and money.
Her paralegals were also very helpful and nice. My divorce was final in five months, which eliminated stress from my life. She was respectful of my family issues and worked around my schedule. I would hire her again if I ever needed a family lawyer.
Mrs. Drouin was my attorney for my divorce. I had been married for 10 years and it ended up being a little complicated. Anique did an excellent job, is extremely hard working, and always made me feel that she was looking out for my best interests.
Anique is a very hardworking and knowledgeable and competitive attorney. She has always answered my questions with great patience and concern and is a very friendly person to interact with. I wish her good luck and success.
My experience with Anique was unique. I felt comfortable about taliking to her about anything regarding my divorce, visitation etc. I could feel that she felt my pain of what I was going through, yet when I was unraveling she would help me to focus on the issue or issues at hand. She is very professional and detailed. Her personality puts you at ease even though you are going through a difficult time. She helped me to understand as to what was important to fight for and what things I needed to accept and "let go".
When going through difficult times you need to feel normal and that everything is going to be okay. I guess this is what I liked about Anique the most is that she has this infectious laugh that would relieve the tension and make me feel good about life and my future. I would highly recommend her in the future if I have the opportunity presents itself.
Anique handled my divorce case as a consummate attorney. She was very conscientious, extremely knowledgeable, and punctual filing court papers and attending court proceedings. She kept me well informed of all developments throughout the divorce process by means of meetings, phone calls, emails, and letters. Anique is a true credit to her profession.
