Mrs. Raddatz is simply amazing. First, she took my case half way through and with everything in shambles. She kept me updated and was willing to answer all of my questions promptly. Opposing counsel was for lack of a better word, "difficult", but she handled him with grace and professionalism. If you are a father who truly loves his children, Mrs. Raddatz will fight to the end for you. I am happy to say that in the couple months that i had hired Mrs. Raddatz, she had accomplished what my previous lawyer could not accomplish in almost a year, and at far less of a cost. I really didn't think this outcome would have been possible, but thanks to Mrs. Raddatz, I now see my children on a very regular basis and settled on a child support cost that was very reasonable. The stresses of going to court every month has been dissolved, I have a reasonable schedule with my children, and I am assured to have a competent lawyer in my corner should the need ever arise again. Once again if you are a father who loves his children, Mrs. Raddatz will fight for your rights as a father. She always has the best interest of your children. God bless you Mrs. Raddatz.

Peggy is an excellent and very thorough attorney who looks at every possible angle of a case. I found her knowledge of the law and courtroom capabilities to be outstanding. It is very comforting to have an attorney whom you can trust during what are typically difficult personal issues. I have recommended her to many friends and family...there is no one better than Peggy to handle your divorce proceedings.

I have referred several friends and family members to Ms. Raddatz due to her extensive knowledge in her specific area of the law. She has helped them get through very difficult times and has always acted in the best interest of her clients. I will continue to recommend her to anyone who is seeking a good family lawyer.

I have known Peggy my entire life. When my marriage of 20 years ended, I turned to her. Peggy is compassionate and competent and knows how to get the job done. I have sent many of my colleagues to Peggy to help get them through the difficult times in their life.

Wow! We are so lucky we learned about Peggy Raddatz! She is an amazing attorney. She goes above and beyond. She is not only knowledgeable, but can answer our questions in laymen terms. She really cares about her clients. She is very professional. I do not wish to discuss our case online, but I can say that she did us proud. We have met a few lawyers in our time -- she is outstanding! We will contact her again in the future if we need her services or need her help getting us to a lawyer in a different field. I highly recommend this lawyer.

Peggy was recommended to me by another farther several years ago. As a father of three children a divorce, raised so many concerns, about my children’s, finances, quality of life, etc.
Peggy was passionate about protecting mine and my children’s interests she was always ready to inform me of the risks of any decisions I was making. My divorce was finalized near end of 2003 after three year ordeal; I was impressed with the results she was able to obtain for my children and myself in this matter. Thank you, Peggy!
After several years of calm, my “X” want to contest the agreed upon, college expenses. I knew who to call, Peggy.
Peggy is a top notch attorney - extremely knowledgeable in Illinois Family Law, personable, reliable, and has a wonderful staff. Peggy was very understanding and supportive when dealing with the stress and emotional roller coaster of a divorce, child custody, and financial settlements.
I would strongly recommend Peggy to anyone going through a separation or divorce.

Peggy is a wonderful lawyer. She is an incredibly intelligent woman who is understanding, kind, forthright, and an expert in her field. Her council during our case was superb. She makes you feel like you are her only client. I would recommend Peggy to anyone. She is definitely in a class by herself. Peggy is professional, reliable, and also has a wonderful staff. She always got back to us in a very timely manner when we had questions along the way. She was very reassuring and always willing to explain various steps of the process. Peggy is extremely organized, prompt, and driven. You will be hard pressed to find another lawyer with her work ethic, determination, experience, and character. Peggy is exceptional.

I used Peggy several years ago for my divorce and custody issues, and is currently revamping my child support. As a single father, I was impessed with her compassion and understanding of my fears and concerns. She is a knowledgable attorney that will fight for your rights and keep you calm during trying times. She listens to your concerns and offers immediate action and advice. She is always available to answer any and all questions. I highly recommend her!

In both knowledge and execution, I found Ms. Raddatz to be head and shoulders above the other family law lawyers I've worked with over the years.
I required a lot of advice regarding child support and arrangements for payments and visitation, and she was there for me.
Not only was her legal advice always spot-on, she kept in the loop during the process, always took my calls or returned them promptly. She went the extra mile.

Peggy has handled two divorces for me over the years. The first was a simple one, the second was a four year stressful ordeal. Peggy kept me informed and calm and stressed to be patient, as there is a method to the madness. In the end, it came out how I wanted and she saved me 10's of thousands of dollars. I can't thank her enough. I would, and have recommended her to many people. And for you fathers out there who think you need those specialized, expensive "father's rights" attorneys, think again. She's better than all of them!
