I recently hired Bill to represent me in a very complicated and messy contested probate situation that involved not only a financial estate but also the guardianship of a disabled parent. This matter evolved into a guardianship/custody situation over an infant that ended up going to trial. Bill's preparation and actions in court were great. Even courtroom regulars like social workers, CASA, a DCFS investigator, and other lawyers commented on how well Bill Hotopp handled the case, despite .

I also hired Bill to go after some individuals and companies who illegally and/or unethically financially exploited my disabled mother for large sums of money. One person has already gone to jail and was convicted on felony charges as a result. Other individuals and companies are now in the process of making amends. We can't get all the money back, but we are starting to see some results.

Prior to all this I have hired Bill Hotopp to handle numerous personal and business matters. All of them have resulted in successful outcomes, most did not go to trial. As a Lawyer Bill is knowledgeable, methodical, thorough and has a passion for helping his clients.

I have worked with dozens attorneys in my business and consulting career. Whenever it is my own money going to pay for a lawyer, and I have a choice, I have hired Bill Hotopp.

For me Bill has successfully handled the following sort of cases:

Family (Divorce, custody, etc.)
Business
Probate
Trust

Bill stands out among attorneys as he is genuinely more concerned about achieving a good outcome for his clients rather than racking up bilable hours.
