5.0 stars 5 totalReview Lyn Conniff
Lyn Conniff represented me in my collaborative divorce process. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to my case. On top of that, she is a lovely person to work with. She has cares about clients and has a great sense of humor. I recommend her highly!
I am very pleased to have had Lyn represent me in negotiating a very involved divorce, covering four minor children and their counsel, two pensions and two QDROs, two 401k plans, and the differing tax consequences in valuing various assets. She was invaluable in creating a solution to convey a house with an existing mortgage cleanly, so that the kids could remain in the school district and the neighborhood, while protecting my interest in ensuring that the mortgage and home equity loans were replaced, and paid off, as soon as practicable. Lyn is very informed as to Illinois law, as well as to the norms and guidelines of the court system in Cook County. She is compassionate, and was a great help in finding a superb counselor for the children. Lyn is a phenomenal resource, and was instrumental in illuminating a path forward for my family in many ways, including of course legal, but also financial and even emotional. I find her to be open minded, real-world oriented, and motivated to find fair and workable outcomes. I recommend her unequivocally and without reservation.
I knew after the first few minutes of meeting her that Lyn Conniff was the right attorney to represent me in my divorce. The financial aspects of my divorce were complicated and I knew that I needed an attorney who had deep experience and strong analytical skills. Not only did Lyn quickly understand the complexities of the financial issues, she explained them to me in a way I could understand. Lyn is collaborative in her approach but she is not afraid to advocate for a position. She can be tough when necessary but she is also very empathetic and authentic.
I have friends who have described their divorce process as being unnecessarily protracted and out of their control. When you are going through a divorce, you already feel like your life is out of control! The last thing you need is an attorney that doesn’t communicate and wastes time and money on unnecessary paperwork and negotiation. That is the opposite of my experience with Lyn. I highly recommend Lyn for her integrity, her breadth of experience and her commitment to attaining a positive outcome for her clients.

I recently went through a divorce that I did not want to happen. I was heartbroken and not thinking clearly through the process and foolishly chose to let my soon-to-be ex-husband and his attorney handle all the details. Unfortunately, I took the word of these two people who clearly did not have what was best for me or my daughter in mind when crafting the marital settlement agreement. Then, just a couple of weeks before going to court, I was told through a casual acquaintance about a new Illinois law regarding maintenance guidelines. I immediately searched for more information online and found an article on the Conniff Law website regarding this new law. I wasted no time and made an appointment with Lyn Conniff to discuss my situation. Lyn went to work immediately to save me from making a huge mistake. I highly recommend Lyn Conniff and her amazing associates to handle all matters of divorce and child custody. I went from being completely alone in the divorce process to having a whole group of competent and understanding attorneys in my corner. The divorce moved quickly and within 4 months everything was complete. I couldn't be happier with my choice to hire Lyn and so grateful that I did.

Having just made it through a 10-month long divorce process, with Lyn Conniff as my attorney, I can wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone interested in a positive, collaborative approach to getting divorced. Lyn was always professional, organized, prepared, and friendly to work with--in fact, she has a great sense of humor which I found to be quite helpful as we worked through all the stages of the divorce, some of which can get fairly tedious and grinding, let's just say.
