5.0 stars 16 totalReview Marilyn Longwell
When Marilyn represented me in my divorce, I really appreciated her careful and thoughtful approach to the specifics of my case. She listened carefully to what I wanted and gave great advice, based both on her understanding of the law, what it would permit and on her assessment of what would be the best possible outcome for me and my child. She was also great at helping me keep my cool during some difficult moments with my spouse, keeping me on track with what was really important to me in the big picture. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Marilyn Longwell is a very knowledgeable ffamily lawyer. Marilyn is thorough and upfront with her communications. I believe Marilyn is a straight shooter and if she believes you have a chance of winning she will win. I was skeptical with my custody battles at times not having any legal background but with the halp of Marilyn and her staff I have won my custody case and am a very happy father of two little giirls. I would recommend Marilyn Longwell to everybody that is need of an excellent family lawyer. Without Marilyn and her staff, I would not be a happy father.

I was very satisfied with Marilyn’s representation of me in a difficult family law
suit, which she handled very effectively. Judges and opposing counsel
displayed a lot of respect for her. In my estimation, that respect was very well
deserved – and such respect also seemed to increase her effectiveness in court.
I hope that I will never again need a family law attorney to represent me in court – but if I do,
I plan to call Marilyn.

Through out the duration of my trial, Mrs. Longwell maintain a professional attitude, very skillful in her application of the law. She not only knew and upheld the laws pertaining to my case, but she maintain the spirit of the law. What made Mrs. Longwell so different from the other attorneys, she displayed a genuine and warm disposition. All of those qualities played an important part in making our case successful as well as minimizing the sting of such an sensitive case. Although I will probably spend the rest of my life in her debt, it was truly worth it. She has an wonderful staff that compliments her. Mrs. Longwell helped restored the dignity that had been taken away from me not only as a mother but also a woman. I never really expressed to her the depth of my appreciation, words cannot express
how I truly feel. If you ever have an opportunity to work with Mrs.Long well, you will also discover a true GEM.

It may seem like a small thing to ask of a highly rated attorney like Marilyn, but I was incensed. When my car was illegally parked by a theater valet service in Chicago, I was issued a costly parking ticket and sought redress from the theater personnel and their contract valet service. Both businesses were unresponsive to my repeated verbal and written requests to address this problem, much less pay the costly fine that they incurred (which, by the way, kept increasing as time went by with the ticket unpaid). I'm sure these business owners assumed I would eventually just eat the cost...after all, I was one individual against two businesses and what chance did I stand? After months of frustration trying to deal with them on my own, I became very annoyed with the consumer brush off. I could have paid the ticket, but there was a principle involved and I chose to fight back against these irresponsible businesses, hoping that if I was successful, they might think twice about their parking policy and about stiffing the next guy. It was then that I contacted Marilyn Longwell for legal advice and assistance. Throughout the process, she was personable, professional, and patient. She understood the position I was in and the principle behind it and became my ally. She was knowledgeable and persistent in her efforts to resolve this issue on my behalf, ultimately achieving a positive outcome for me in a short period of time. In addition to the fact that I am delighted with the service she provided, I have great satisfaction knowing that the two businesses involved did not get away with stiffing this consumer. Thank you, Marilyn!

Marilyn provided excellent representation for me. She is knowledgeable about the law and the court system, and guided me in a sensitive and sensible manner. In a divorce, emotions can run high and Marilyn remained steady and logical which helped me keep calm and focused. Marilyn is responsive, and as a person who also represents children (as well as divorce litigants) she is especially attuned to the needs of children in divorce. She will think through all of the aspects of your cases - even matters you hadn't considered. On a personal note, she is a genuinely interesting person who is well-traveled, well-read, and who has a great sense of humor. Trust her- she's terrific!

This a very friendly, efficient, professional firm. They took very good care of my case and I am very satisfied with the outcome. If you're in need of a family lawyer I would definitely recommend Marilyn Longwell. Their guidance was valuable and they helped me undestand the process while going through the entire case.

I found Mrs. Longwell via Avvo. She is professional, honest, thorough and compassionate Lawyer.
I hired her to deal with my divorce. Even thou English is not my first language, she always made sure I understood all about the case. Every meeting was very fruitful . She guided me through this process, giving clear indications of what was needed to make this case successful. From the first meeting I felt welcomed and secure. She has a strong personality and the same time she is kind. I will go back to her if I ever need a Lawyer.

I have had ongoing issues regarding my children due to my divorce 10 years ago, and Marilyn has consistently been there on the side of fairness and what is best for the children, as well as supporting my needs as a client. She has consistently given fair and measured advice, and so has helped me navigate the difficult waters of ongoing litigation. I have and will continue to recommend Marilyn to anyone who needs a good lawyer.
