I needed to find an attorney to negotiate a settlement of my outstanding child arrears judgement. The judgement was an amount that I would never be able to pay. When I had my first consultation with Modupe I could tell that she was a caring advocate who could negotiate a settlement that would be acceptable to all parties involved. She is a very well spoken, knowledgeable and assertive lawyer. Her approach was pragmatic and efficient. She kept me informed on a timely basis by phone or email.
She is very methodical and detailed in her billing of her time. And I found that her sevices were very reasonably priced. But most importantly, I was extremely pleased with the results . Her efforts resulted in a settlement significanlty less than the original judgement amount. I am eternally grateful to her.
I will always be her staunchest advocate!

I highly recommend Attorney Sobo, her knowledge of the legal process as well as her ability to apply the law remains A-1. Attorney Sobo's responsiveness was prompt and very thorough. Attorney Sobo's communication was always precise and to the point. The legal expertise of Attorney Sobo was a far greater value than what attorney Sobo's fees were for the services provided.

I am still ecstatic about the way Attorney Modupe Sobo worked on my behalf! Attorney Modupe Sobo represented me in a complicated civil case that took over 2 years to resolve - but it was resolved in amy favor. While representing me, she was aggressive, insightful, and unwavering in her advocacy on my part. She always stood up to the Assistant State's Attorneys and was expert in her knowledge of the law. Before meeting Attorney Sobo, I tried to find a lawyer on my own - without consulting anyone. I met with several other attorneys who didn't feel the case could be resolved in my favor, were negative in their attitude about my need to go to court, and lacked the passion, I as a client, want to see/feel from my legal representative. I talked to several close friends who are lawyers, but not in civil/domestic cases, and they recommended I go see Attorney Sobo. From my initial meeting and throughout the numerous court hearings, Attorney Sobo was always there, supportive and positive in her advocacy on my behalf. She saved me over $70,000.
So, without any reservation, I would recommend her to anyone, seeking expert, professional, passionate, and caring legal representation or counsel in any type of domestic or civil case. In my opinion, you will be hard-pressed to find a better (or even equal) legal advocate in the Chicago.

Modupe Sobo law firm took up my case for me and fought very hard to help me resolve my messy divorce and child custody fight in a timely manner. She was very aggressive against my opponent and was very knowledgeable about the law . Modupe Sobo firm ensured that I was not cheated and she saved me a lot of court expenses and money, despite picking up my case at a late and damaged stage because my first attorney Mr. Axelrod (who I fired) had really messed up the case and i had a judge who was biased and angry towards me but My second lawyer Ms. Modupe Sobo was able to salvage the case for me and got me a pretty good settlement. she was very good followed the letter of the law despite facing a hostile judge, i got good custodial rights for my daughter. Excellent lawyer I recommend her any day to everyone.

Modupe took a significant cash retainer from a litigant with no financial resources and on public aid thru no fault of their own. Modupe did not have to pay filing fees or an appearance fee as that was already prepaid by litigant. Modupe agreed to handle the case for support and property concerns with one page certified petitions already on file. There was already a hearing scheduled that Modupe agreed to with me, the Court and the other party. Modupe then filed a petition for fees and then withdrew from the case. I had to stand trial by myself. The retainer could of been used compensate a legal aid lawyer for at least 20 hours of legal administration or to use for the basic necessities of life. if you think this is slanderous, look up case [case number removed] at the Cook County Court Clerk's office website. I question this attorney's fiduciary obligation, integrity and trustworthiness. Just another self-serving bad apple. Modupe's actions or lack thereof caused unnecessary financial losses and unnecessary delay. Needless to say, it has weakened my trust, faith and confidence in our legal system and of the conduct allowed by a licensed lawyer.

She was very effective and able to get the job done, in a timely manner. She let me know what to expect and was able to break down the whole process. She did not lie about cost was an attorney I was really able to rely on.

I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. She represented me in a divorce after a 29 yr marriage with children and property. She was sensitive, knowledgeable and fair. Even my ex felt she represented me well.
What could have been a very unpleasant experience was handled professionally from beginning to end. I even appreciated her administrative support staff for clear communication and excellent follow through.
I have recommended Modupe Sobo to others and they always call back surprised to be treated so well.
The services were reasonably priced so when I remarried three years ago, Attorney Sobo prepared my prenuptual agreement.
The fact that she is a woman is such a plus to me. I feel she understood my point of view but I can't help remembering that my former husband respected they way she handled my case.
