    • I do not recommend Berton Ring.
    • I hired Berton 1-3 years ago.
    • Berton handled my Landlord / Tenant matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Ring charges unreasonable fees. This has been determined by the trial court. Though the decision was later reversed, we can see the problems in the description of the case. Cite the case description "The order then lists 15 specific dated entries that the trial court characterized as “[s]ome of the offending entries.”   These include:  (1) 1.5 hours to review a police report;  (2) 1.5 hours to prepare and file a special process service motion;  (3) 3 hours to prepare a client letter;  (4) 2.5 hours to prepare for prove up, when 1.3 hours were spent 14 days prior;  and (5) 1.25 hours to review counterclaim answer, when four days prior contained that charge.". Now, I guess it is for you to judge whether these charges are reasonable, and whether he is in the case for himself.

    • I do not recommend Berton Ring.
    • I hired Berton 1-3 years ago.
    • Berton handled my Landlord / Tenant matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I spent many many days in court. Ring kept promising how much money he would "win" for me. At the end, I received very little as his "expert legal fees" took most of the settlement.
    He is in it for himself. No regard for the client.
    I didn't know ahead of time that he had disciplinary issues with the state of Illinois. I should have checked beforehand. Never again.

      Lawyer Comment:

      If this client would provide some additional information, including their name and case number, I could certainly provide a comment concerning his/her case and the specifics that are publicly available. I am not allowed to provide or comment with any confidential information as such may violate the attorney code of professional conduct. Some competing attorneys in my business are known to provide negative information about attorneys to reduce their chances of referrals.

    Mr. Ring made my lawsuit so easy and always kept me informed of everything that was going on. I only had to do in to the office 3 times, once for the consultation, once to sign the paperwork, and lastly to pick up my check. My case in all probably lasted less than 6 months. He made it so easy to for me to understand what was going on. If there was any change in the status he personally call me or email me. He is a very good listener, and really was patient with me. He answered every question of mine. I would HIGHLY recommended Mr. Ring, you would not be disappointed with him at all.
