Mr. Chiero provided me with more useful information in thirty minutes than my prior counsel provided to me in eighteen months. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and fair with his fees. Mr. Chiero's advanced skill in the courtroom resulted in an unexpected award of sole custody of my child to me. In addition to protecting me and my daughter in the courtroom, Mr. Chiero also gave me comfort and peace of mind with his calm demeanor and soothing voice. My daughter still refers to Mr. Chiero as her hero.
Michael Chiero made the miserable experience of divorce, even worse for me. He never had time for me or my calls and did not seem to care about my case at all. He ended up quitting on me after getting me what my new lawyer has called a "mind-boggling" awful settlement agreement. I am now stuck with new legal bills to undo what Michael Chiero did. He treated me badly because I didn't have as much money as his other clients. Even though I paid him the same rate. So disappointed in the service I received from Michael Chiero. Definitely would not recommend him.
I would highly recommend Michael Chiero. His professionalism is remarkable with placing the upmost focus on his clients needs. He was very knowledgeable in matters of Law with what I perceived as a photographic memory of Illinois marriage and family law from his early days of education. At no point did he ever have to "I'll get back to you" with any questions i had. I never got the run around nor had to wait for questions to be answered. This gave me the upmost confidence that he could handle any situation as it arose in my case "on the fly" and without a second thought. His first goal and number one priority was to protect me and he showed this by always staying one step ahead of all potential situations that could bring harm to my case. He was pleasant to work with and always showed the upmost professional curiosities thru the entire process. He is a straight shooter and has little patiences for drama or nonsense that so often occurs in divorce cases. He is not afraid to take action when it is needed or stand up when opposing council would step out of line. He made the entire process seem simple and easy. I listened and followed his direction and my case was handled by him exactly as planned with reaching each goal to 100% satisfaction. This is the first attorney i can honesty say i have worked with that practices law based on his principals and belief in justice rather than money. His priorities in his profession make him stand out and above so many of his peers and this is rare to find these days. I would highly recommend him without hesitation.
