I retained Marc in May 2014 after appearing in a Lake County traffic court for what I thought was a regular speeding violation. Instead I was told by the judge that I faced up to 6 months in jail, $1500 in fines and a guaranteed Class B misdemeanor (not just a traffic violation) on my record if I was convicted. This is because a relatively new state law makes speeding over 31 mph a Class B misdemeanor and does not allow the judge to use discretion in determining the sentence.
Marc was highly recommended to me by a friend who said Marc was the perfect lawyer for the job –experienced, knowledgeable, and effective. And he proved to be all that and more. Prior to opening his own law firm, Marc worked in a Lake County prosecutor’s office so he knew the people and the process on the opposing side and had plenty of experience in court. It was apparent that Marc was still well received and respected by the County officers. He is confident and smart, but honest and respectful. Even though this was a state traffic violation and my 2nd speeding ticket in less than 12 months, Marc was able to negotiate with the state to a reduced speeding violation and I received only 4 months supervision and a small fine. Marc’s fee was very reasonable and he was responsive, kept me informed and answered all my questions. I have previously worked with other lawyers and Marc is by far a standout. There were others in court that same day charged with the same offense and none of them did as well as we did. I highly recommend Marc without reservation!
I come from a small town and going to a big city was overwhelming. I was in desperate need of a lawyer, and by the grace of God, he pointed me in the right direction. Marc made me feel like family, he listened, he cared, he assured me
that he would do everything he could to help me during my custody hearing. And that's exactly what he did. We finished winners. He is an excellent lawyer, and from the experience I've had with Mark, I recommend him 100%.
Marc worked very diligently and did a thorough job for my case. I needed work done, specifically, for a cease and desist letter. With Marc's background and experience, I felt he was able to uncover all the necessary details to provide the best service possible.
Mr. Bangser is very professional, yet personable. He stays in close contact with his client and pays attention to details. Way he retains the knowledge of the case and communicates with his clients differentiates him from other lawyers I worked with. He is attentive, aggressive and decisive. He displays high level of confidence while being very realistic. I observed Mr. Bangser in court and was impressed by level of “emotional intelligence” he applies when working with the judge or other attorneys.
Mr. Bangser admits that his hands-on experience as family law practitioner is relatively fresh, yet I would have no hesitance in recommending Mr. Bangser to my friends shall they need legal assistance. Mr. Bangser knows how to leverage his professional partners and how to use his solid courtroom experience to the best benefit of his client.
Couldn't have asked for a better answer to my prayers. I'm from a small town in Tennessee and I needed a lawyer from Illinois, and it just so happened that I found exactly who I needed. Marc Bangser is a great lawyer, but not just that. He is very devoted to his job, makes a person feel so welcome and at home, and will do everything he can to help you get through a rough time. He got the job done, and at the end of the day.....we were winners. I am very grateful and lucky to have met an intelligent and wonderful lawyer like him. And I want to say thank you to another person that helped too and her name is Emily. Thank you Emily, you all were awesome. If you're in Oak Brook, IL and need a lawyer, call Marc Bangser or Emily, they will get the job done.
I had the pleasure of working with Marc during his time at the State's Attorney's office. During that time, he was my go-to guy for legal questions. He has always been very hard working and dedicated. When he moved on to the Bennett Law Firm to practice family law I knew he would do great. Being my go-to guy in the past, I contacted Marc for a family related matter. Needless to say, he didn't let me down! Again, he was very hard working and his dedication got my case settled fast! Marc returned my phone calls and emails almost immediately. He is very eager to help people and has always been a very compassionate person. I would highly recommend contacting Marc for any of your family law needs. Thanks again Marc!!
