    Stay away from this one

    I had her for a few months in my divorce procedure. She sent me a bill of $5000 without any serious work done. She would not answer your phone and let you keep leaving message. Then, she charged hundreds of dollars just for listening to my message. She charged me for two court appearances. I was shocked to find out that she did not even show up at the court as just one of her assistant dropped by. After a few months, she already charged me over $15000. My issues are not solved at all. I had to find another attorney. Stay away from this money pit!

    Beware women from domestic abuse

    Eva Tameling held onto important information that my family were in a abusive home. Knowing we were destitute and my then husband had control of all the finances, she never requested financial help for us or a order of protection against my then husband because it would mean her "meal-ticket'. We were lucky to get out alive, and in the end I had to claim bankrupt against her nearly $50,000 bill when I'm only making $30.000 a year as head of the household.

    If I had started with Eva Tameling, my custody battle would have turned out differently, I am sure!

    Eva Tameling was my second attorney that I used during my custody battle for my 14 yr. old daughter. I am certain, that, if I had Eva from the beginning, things would have turned out in my favor. However, my first attorney convinced me that I needed to enter an Agreed Order in this matter, unless I could pay him the balance that I owed him (6,500.00) and give him a retainer of $10,000.00-$15,000.00.
    I felt backed into a corner with no other options. Previously, this first attorney was not returning my calls, emails,or text messages. I was trying to get counsel from him for weeks before my case came up for a status hearing. He kept telling me that I needed to hammer out an Agreed Order with my ex-husband(whom I couldn't come to any agreement with him). That day in court was the worst day of my life because I agreed to give up my child with no time to process what was going into that order.
    I went to see Eva Tameling to see if there was some way to get out of the Agreed Order and start over again. She was beyond wonderful and helpful in every way. She always returned my calls and emails. She sent me copies of what happened at every hearing. The weekend before we were going to have our hearing, she called me and discussed things with me. She also asked if I could meet with her on Sunday to strategize. Who ever consults with their client on a Sunday? She was the best attorney I have ever worked with.
    When if comes to the custody of our children, we need a dedicated, knowledgeable and compassionate attorney. Eva Tameling is worth every penny of her fee, in gold!

    She’s knowledgeable, fair and produces results - well worth the cost!

    I worked with several attorneys on my divorce, but nothing was ever resolved until I hired Eva. Prior to hiring Eva I had Lawyers that were both less expensive than her and one that was more expensive than her, but none could accomplish the results that she produced.
    Once I secured Eva's services, in less than a year she had a settlement and CASE CLOSED! With prior attorneys I was just billable hours and it seems like I was constantly going back to court for status hearings even though they had accomplished nothing. Not so with Eva, she gets things done! In my opinion there are lawyers who charge more and those who charge less, but none who could produce results like her! And As for her billing practices, I think it is money well spent! Her office staff is a pleasure to work with and just as effective as her; together they get things done! I wish I'd have gone to her before wasting money on the other attorneys.

    She’s knowledgeable, fair and can produce results!

    Stay Away!!!!!!!!

    Eva Tameling overcharges clients. I was very displeased with her office and service. Watch out for her- she will bill for you for EVERYTHING you can imagine!

    She is a smart woman, but is very expensive and will take advantage of you for your money rather than quickly resolving your legal issue.

    Hinsdale Father

    Now divorced, dealing with post-decree issues of many sorts, I have struggled with a good number of attorneys that literally "go through the motions" dragging out the case in hopes of a settlement. Eva is anything but one of them. She is clear minded and very hard working. She understood my case in the course of a week-end (prior to engagement!) and laid out a strategy that worked. She understands the family law court system, what works, what doesn't work and affectively applied the law in a way that had the other side assigning within 3 weeks for a settlement of a case other attorneys made no progress with in 2 1/2 years.

    Most importantly, this accomplishment was achieved with good old fashioned hard work, and ethics of the highest level--not by bullying or unreasonable tactics. These same ethical standards apply to her billing practices as well.

    I highly recommend Eva Tameling if you are ready for a hard working, intelligent lawyer that as honest with her fees as she is in handling your case.

    STAY AWAY!

    If you want to be overbilled and not know what is going on with your attorney, I have the person for you - Eva Tameling. She bills in 15 minute increments, even if you are only on the phone with her for 2 minutes. Oh, wait, talk to her twice in 15 minutes? Yes, get hit for 2 discussions. How about an attorney who says you need to stress your visitation rights and advises you to call the police; then stops returning your calls after the police threaten to arrest you for criminal trespass when you are waiting peacefully in your ex's drive way to pick up your kids?

    I spent over $40,000 on my divorce then had to go back to court a couple years later and was whacked with another $20,000 bill after she know I was near bankruptcy anyway.

    How can you trust anyone who schedules a trial date, then 3 weeks before asks the court to change the date because she is going to be on vacation?

    I could go on and on, but you I think you get the idea.

    Oh, and I am sure this won't get posted because it is too "defamatory"; and yes I read the agreement, and have documentation to back it up!
