My husband needed a lawyer to handle his custody/support issues with his ex who just LOVES to sue us. Every attorney he'd found sounded great and said all the right things and then folded like a cheap suit in front of our very stern judge.
We felt like we hit the jackpot after our consultation with Angela. She is like a live version of Judge Judy; ever tough and to the point. She actually told us to handle our first matter pro se (represent ourselves) because she would feel "icky" taking our money for something so simple. YES - I just said I found a lawyer who refused money!
She is dogged and tenacious in her negotiations and you can bet she'll keep your bottom line in the forefront of her mind during those conversations and take no quarter. She was the only attorney I've met that made me feel 100% confident. She loves her job, she loves the law and she loves to win. I cannot say enough positive things about her. WELL worth any price she charges.
Ms Henderson appeared to be a great lawyer at the beginning, but she & her staff became very slow in their follow up & returning calls, her staff is terrible about follow through. I had to contact my ex husbands work to find out the right person to send child support papers as Ms. Henderson's firm couldn't get the paperwork done. It took me one phone call to his HR dept, a number her firm had available to them. Then when the divorce was final I didn't even get a copy of the divorce papers, I had to go back to the records office and pay $15. Ms Henderson was not prepared on court days. Then when it came time to go back to court to amend child support as agreed after on year , she wanted to charge me more money again, after telling me that including this stipulation in the divorce papers that the ex would incur charges, if we ever had to go back to court. She and her firm continually change their story about charges I owed, When I asked for supporting documents she threathened me and said to pay or she would charge me more. She and her firm are unprofessional and cannot be trusted.
She was helpful and saved me money by explaining the law to me in a way I understood.
ANGELA BY FAR HAS BEEN MY BEST ADVOCATE WITH MY DIVORCE AND CHILD CUSTODY BATTLE THAT HAS LASTED 10 YEARS. SHE KNOWS EVERY PERSON THAT MATTERS ON THE 2cd - 4 tH FLOORS IN WILL COUNTY. MY LAWYER always in that county. Craig Mikalayunas
Angela Henderson is the epitome of what every attorney and mediator should strive to be. She is dedicated to her clients and her cases. She diligently follows not only every aspect of the court process, but she also becomes involved in personally representing the best interests of every client who walks through her door. As a guardian ad litem, she works hard to ensure the best interests of children are not lost in the courtroom shuffle. As a mediator, she settles disputes with respect, confidentiality, neutrality and diligence. She supported me every step of the way in my case and really worked hard to ensure that my needs and interests were met, all the while maintaining her professionalism. My case had the outcome I was looking for, that was really in the best interests of all involved, and I really do not think I could have had the success I had without Angela Henderson representing me. Most every court case is horrible, but Angela really worked hard to ensure it was a smooth process. She had respect for me, for the other attorneys and for the court in general. She treated me like a person and not just like a client and I really felt she cared about my case. If I ever have any other court issues I need taken care of, I would only hire Angela Henderson because she is the best of what an attorney should be.
