Mr. John Brennock worked with me to determine the best route i should go on my case. I couldn't be more happy with his results. Not only was John knowledgeable about my situation, but everything was handled properly and quickly. My case was dismissed, and given the circumstances of my case, I didn't break the bank for costs. John didn't ask for an outrageous amount of money, and got the job done. I am very thankful and satisfied with everything that john has done for me. I look forward to having John Brennock on my side if any future issuses arise where i need to hire a lawyer.

My wife and I got to know John through his father, Mike, who is a long-established Chicago attorney. Mike had helped us with a few real estate closings. We later hired John to help us with some legal issues related to our commercial rental property. John reviewed the lease, detailed our options, and represented us in court. We were able to get satisfaction on some back payments that the tenant owed. John Brennock is a smart and professional young attorney. He is thorough and spends as much time as needed to get to know the case and understand the legal issues in depth. He is responsive, swift to return calls or emails. We strongly recommend John as an attorney who is competent, generous, and has strong convictions.

Attorney Brennock provided me with excellent consultation/guidance in a real estate matter. He was prompt, thorough, responsive, and extremely helpful. He helped me to understand my options and was extremely responsive. I would highly recommend him.

I live out of state and needed the assistance of attorneys to help our family. Our mother was living in Illinois, in ill health, and eventually passed. We were originally referred to Michael Brennock to help us with real estate issues. Later we were referred to John Brennock for lease and related estate issues. Both Michael and John were very professional and of great help to us during these difficult transitions. I would highly recommend them both!

When I was looking for an attorney to handle an eviction I wanted someone that was in court every day and knew landlord-tenant law not only in theory but in practice. I found that in John.
He has an encyclopedic-like knowledge of landlord-tenant law and is quick to respond with his (always thorough) thoughts on subject. He has represented me in two court cases and with a handful of lease matters and I don't think I could have been represented any better.
My only trepidation in recommending him is that he won't be available next time I need him!

Yes, I would recommend Attorney Brennock for all your estate planning. He is very knowledgeable about the subject matter, if he is not certain about something he does not mind seeking information that will benefit you from other sources.

I highly recommend Attorney John Brennock for any legal matters. After seeking monetary resolve in a small claims case for more than one year, John Brennock almost immediately helped provide resolution to the ongoing dispute. Within hours of contacting John Brennock he had provided me with insight into my rights as a consumer, details of what I could expect and immediate steps to resolution. On my behalf he then helped work through a resolution quickly to provide me with full money I was owed within just a short time frame.
He helped in more ways than I could have ever asked. I would highly recommend John time and again to anyone in need of an attentive and responsive attorney and would 100% seek out John on any legal matter that I may come across at any point in the future. Overall, words can speak to the help and insight Attorney John Brennock provided.

Concerning my case, John kept be very informed. Phoning and updating me even after closing hours. I lost my job, so he lowered his fee. He's very knowledgeable and intelligent . He always let me know my options and was always polite. Yes, I would recommend him in a second. He handled my case as if it was his own.

I'd recently moved to Chicago with my wife and 2yr old and seeked the help of a RENOWNED apartment finders locally. We explained our requirements very clearly, that safety is our concern due the 2yr old and my wife in school. They seemed great at the beginning pretended to be amazing listeners and they placed in a property, and highly recommended the same as well. Only to know in the next weeks that was a horrible community with a pretty high crime rate. When we spoke to the property manager he changed his tone right away and kept saying. You signed a lease you can't just walk away. It's safe place and hung up in a very arrogant voice. We even offered 3months rent upfront but they wouldn't budge.
We'd seeked the help of John through my boss' family member. John clearly understood what went wrong and reviewed my lease and spotted legal compliance issues and also too many modifications to the landlord/tenant docs. He drafted a letter the same day and asked us to deliver the same in person and move out of the property ASAP. Which we did right away. The apartment finder agency threatened us in the beginning as to complete the lease or pay the entire leases rent upfront, didn't even speak a word after that till date. They silently disappeared without a word. John followed up with us on every status and kept advising us on every move very professionally.
Specially right after a cross country move, new job etc. this was the last thing we needed to be stressed about and it was getting onto us. HUGE thanks to John for helping us here! Highly recommend to folks who're stuck like us.

John was exactly who my partner and I needed to help with a tenant problem. We didn't have a clue as to what our rights were as landlords. He went to court with us and guided us through the legal process professionally. John was very efficient and prompt in getting our problems solved. We have recommended him to others.

John is very responsive and knows very well about tenant rights. I talked to him over the phone about my dispute with landlord then he asked me to email him my lease. Five minutes later, he called me and told me that I could terminate the lease early without any penalty. During my first visit to his office, he showed me the problems in the lease in details and explained to me what I could do. He drafted a letter to the landlord on my behalf and the dispute was settled immediately. Highly recommend John to anyone who needs a lawyer .

Mr. Brennock was a god sent, and definitely made me feel comfortable and at ease with my legal woes. He was very reliable and knew exactly what he was doing, and also worked within my budget. I really appreciate the dedication and effort he put into my case, and I would recommend him to anyone, especially people who have never had any legal issues before, he not only was very knowledgeable, but he also took the time to educate me so I would know what was going on at all times. Check out his website; http://brennocklaw.com/

At very short notice and without previously working with John, John talked me through over the phone, the different circumstances my lease could potentially be terminated without incurring financial penalties for breaking the lease.
Within the same morning of me forwarding the actual lease to John, he was able to determine a condition under which my lease could be terminated, drafted the the termination letter on my behalf and later the same day, get agreement from my landlord's lawyers that I could legally terminate the lease.
I was in situation where I had no choice but to terminate the lease and prior to talking to John, it appeared that I was going to be stuck with a large financial penalty for terminating the lease. However, John was able to find the remotest of reasons why I could legally terminate the lease without incurring any financial penalties
John was personable, knowledgeable, attentive and very responsive to my situation and requests

After noticing some ambiguous clauses and inaccurate statements on a residential lease agreement, I sought the legal services of John E. Brennock and he did not disappoint. He was very quick to respond to all of my phone calls and emails, and was easily accessible even on weekends! Because my case was of a time-sensitive nature, Mr. Brennock quickly reviewed the lease agreement, and drafted a detailed letter to the property manager immediately upon notification. The letter not only contained all the concerns that I had with the agreement, but it also specified numerous irregularities within the agreement that were inconsistent with the law that only a lawyer would notice, and proposed changes that needed to be made in order to have a more accurate and fair agreement. Not only am I completely satisfied with Mr. Brennock's services, but he also came at a more affordable cost than any other real estate lawyer I could find in the Chicagoland area. I therefore highly recommend the counsel of Mr. Brennock, and would eagerly seek his services should any other legal issues arise in the future.
