Marie has received 6 peer endorsements
I have known Marie Fahnert for several years and she has always maintained a high standard of integrity and ethics. She treats every client with equal respect and importance that not only serves her clients well but reflects positively on family practice law and lawyers in general. I personally see her growing in an upward and positive direction in the near future from not only the goodwill she is building in her community but the excellent work she has done. As an attorney, I have worked with her and found her easy to work with and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend her either to potential clients or to other fellow attorneys.
Marie's energy, experience, and education (Northwestern grad) make her an excellent lawyer. She's conscientious and thorough in everything she does. I strongly recommend her and often use her as a knowledge resource myself.
I endorse this lawyer's work. She and I have co-counseled on several cases, and she has done a great job of advocating for clients, in a variety of contexts, and she seems to get very good results for the great majority of them. She communicates effectively, both in writing and orally. She also genuinely cares about her clients, shows compassion for what they are going through, and establishes strong relationships with them. She is highly intelligent, and also possesses "street smarts". She is concerned about ethical issues, and always wants to be fair. I have the impression that her clients are very happy with her representation. I have referred potential clients to her, and will continue doing so.
I endorse this lawyer's work. Marie is a very diligent and thoughtful attorney who is not afraid to go the extra mile for her clients. She is very "tech" savy and uses this to her advantage in her cases. She is also willing to consult with other resources and attorneys so as to provide her clients the best representation possible.
Marie is kind, intelligent, hardworking, open-minded and honest. She combines empathy for clients and their complicated situations with persuasive courtroom argument, careful negotiations, and dedication to legal research and writing. I recently worked with her as co-counsel in a complex interstate-custody case where her written motion (on a question of law) led to a favorable decision by the Illinois Supreme Court.
Marie's Blog, "Just Divorce", shows a wisdom beyond her years. It is funny, moving, elegant and educational, all at the same time. If I needed a divorce attorney in Chicago, I would certainly hire her.
