    • I recommend Sean Mccumber.
    • I hired Sean 1-6 months ago.
    • Sean handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Sean helped me when we were looking for quick representation. He fit us into his schedule right away, although he was in and out of court appointments, was responsive and very thorough. He made sure I understood every aspect of what I was going through in an efficient manner. Would definitely recommend.

    • I recommend Sean Mccumber.
    • I hired Sean 6-12 months ago.
    • Sean handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    Sean has helped me with post-decree issues for the past four years. He ALWAYS responds to me within 24 hours, is able to keep me focused during conversations, uses his time and resources efficiently, and is clear and honest with me about potential outcomes. Sean tells it like it is and if you need guidance, he is always there to offer it. He fought for me on issues that I didn't realize were issues and let me know when there were bigger battles to be fought. Sean is honest with his time and billing and you are always provided with detailed statements. Sean referred me to professionals for my children who were hand-picked, appropriate, and helpful. I cannot recommend him enough to deal with divorce, post-decree, and guardian ad litem issues, particularly involving teenagers.

    • I recommend Sean Mccumber.
    • I hired Sean more than 3 years ago.
    • Sean handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    All divorces are stressful, difficult and full of the potential to get explosively bitter. From the very first meeting with Sean, he worked diligently to stay positive, focus on the legal requirements, and to "do the right thing." Sean's advice was excellent, his knowledge of process was great, and his ability to generate long-term strategy was invaluable.

    3 years after my divorce went final, everything Sean said would come true has: I am happier, healthier, my relationship with my children is better than ever, and we all made it through the divorce successfully.

    It's easy for divorces to be nasty, expensive and difficult. Sean's strengths help to ensure that your divorce doesn't NEED to be so tough.

    I absolutely recommend Sean to anyone going through a divorce.

    • I hired Sean 1-3 years ago.
    • Sean handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Sean is a impeccable lawyer. He is very quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls, he knows what he is talking about and gives great advice. Sean handled my case for about a year after my first lawyer steered me in the wrong direction. Without Sean my case would not be closed today. I recommend Sean to anyone who is looking for a top notch lawyer who cares about his clients and the outcome of the case. Sean truly is on his clients side and is not the type of lawyer who drags out cases just to make money off his clients. He gets the job done! If I ever need a family law lawyer again Sean is the one I'll be using.

    Sean used my time (and retainer) very well. We were well-prepared for settlement conferences. Issues were addressed clearly and comprehensively.

    He was quick to respond to questions. I always felt like my case was moving at a speed based on my readiness. I never felt rushed. But I felt like when things needed to be addressed quickly, they were.

    Sean was sensitive to the emotional toll that the divorce took on me and my family. His approach helped us to defuse some of the loaded emotional areas of the custodial, financial and logistical issues. This helped my ex and I work towards agreements that we could live with.

    Sean's fees were clearly spelled out. Billing statements were timely. And I feel that I was provided a premium level of service for the modest price I paid.

    Sean is clearly very well respected in Dupage county. He was responsive to all my requests and did a great job explaining next steps etc. He was honest and realistic about what he could and could not deliver as it related to my case.

    My case involved a messy custody battle and Sean did a great job of keeping my children's best interests first. It was a difficult ordeal and Sean was very empathetic and understanding.

    Sean is a bulldog and gets things done with a no nonsense approach. Sean is always one step ahead of opposing counsel.
