Tiffany is first rate! She took very good care of me throughout my complex divorce. My former spouse is a military man based abroad, who was adamant about not getting divorced, even though he hasn't seen me or our daughter for the better part of ten years. Once I was finally able to serve him papers (he was visiting the US very briefly), from that point forward he was completely unreasonable about the amount of money he wanted. I had been paying the mortgage by myself those ten years, plus putting my daughter through school, and yet he wanted half the value of the house and half of my pension, without giving me anything!
I'm very happy to say that by the end of the whole process, I was able to pay him a much more affordable amount, and keep the house for myself and my daughter, and also keep my pension. How did things work out so well? All thanks to Tiffany. From the very beginning, she was completely resolute about researching the case law to see where I could win on various disputed points. She was a powerful and dogged negotiator on my behalf, pushing my ex to respond to offers quickly and helping me avoid all the emotional baggage that he was trying to throw at me. She was direct and to the point in discussing the case with my ex's attorney, and she made sure that this very complicated case could get resolved as quickly as possible. Tiffany has always been professional and accessible to any of my queries.
If you are going through a tough divorce and want someone who will listen and really fight for your side, you should go with Tiffany.
I arrived to Tiffany after communication with numerous attorneys in the Chicagoland area, she was by far the best and I knew if from the first conversation we had. I had a tight timeline to get on my case and she was on it immediately with quick response and advice. She gets down to the facts and understands the law but more importantly helps you understand the law as well. Her confidence and professionalism really made the difference in my case. She helps you to understand your options and why you should or should not do something in your case and the reasons why. She is to the point as well and this helps when you are on the fence about something. She always kept me in the loop regarding what was happening and always made time to talk with me even if it was something minor, even after my case was closed when some issues came up she got on the phone with me to discuss them. She is also very down to earth and has a sense of humor as well, so that makes it a little less painful for you giving the fact that you're working with her for likely an unpleasant reason. At some point I may need to go back and revisit my case and she will definitely be the person I go to. I highly recommend her for anyone going through a child custody case, divorce or family law in general.
Tiffany Hughes was instrumental during my divorce process and continues to be now even two years after the fact. Her counsel has an immeasurable value. She consistently goes above and beyond the call in providing thorough information and prompt responses to any of my questions or situations. I feel I can contact Tiffany with any question regarding my legal issues and she happily responds, no matter what the issue. She always explains things to me so that I can easily understand how it relates to my specific decree and rights/responsibilities outlined in said decree. Her advice has been crucial during difficult legal issues regarding my ex-husband and how things are spelled out in our decree. She is a true professional and also a very relatable lawyer that really understands my needs and helps educate her clients to get them the best possible outcome. She remains a trusted resource that I go to for follow-up questions pertaining to my specific decree or any other issues that surface since my divorce was final. Anyone would be lucky to have her representing them.
i Highly recommend Tiffany Hughes as she is the best Lawyer in Cook County. She is highly motivated and loves her job. She is very competent and honest. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the obvious she knows how to deal with very difficult opposing counsel and their clients. She is very thorough and gets to the truth of every matter she handles. I thank Tiffany from the bottom of my heart for all that she has done. I have never heard a judge compliment a lawyer for her phenomenal job on a very complex case. And she did a phenomenal job!!
Tiffany is one of a kind; she is intelligent, articulate, extremely approachable, kind, caring, and very invested in her cases. I hired her to work on my case involving child support/custody modification, and she has truly been a gem (a rarity, especially in a place like Chicago). She really listens to her clients and acts in their best interest; she tells it like it is, but will always consider her clients' feelings/wants when making decisions. She has been the best thing to happen to me in regards to my case, and although it isn't quite over yet, I am one thousand percent satisfied with her advise, guidance, and performance. She is truly one of a kind... and best of all, if you ever need to speak to her, she will personally answer the phone and dedicate her time and undivided attention to you, even during weekends! What attorney does that? She is simply amazing, I cannot say how very happy I am to have found her, lucky me! If any other situations were ever to arise in the future, she is definitely my attorney of choice! Thanks Tiffany!
I was not happy with my current lawyer's performance and decided to switch to Tiffany. It was a hard decision but well worth it. Tiffany tells it like she sees it, which was hard for me to hear sometimes, but needed to be said. She always knew the details of my case and fought for me every step of the way. I was completely happy with the outcome of the trial and believe it would not have ended up this way with my first lawyer. She knows the law, and was always upfront with me. She even looked at ways that could save us time and money. Not to mention, that she looked at what was best for our children. With Tiffany as my lawyer, I didnt feel like just a case like I had felt before. I have already recommended a friend to her and will continue to do so.
I had an extremely high conflict case with an ex who was adamant about making things as difficult as possible. I had previous attorneys tell me that in 10 years of practicing law, they'd never seen someone as manipulative as my ex. I was beginning to think no one could help me, but Tiffany was amazing. Not only does she know the law, but she knows people, and knows how to ask the right questions to get the right information. She is extremely intelligent as well as compassionate, and is truly interested in helping her clients resolve their cases and not just running up billable hours. While I wouldn't wish a family law case on anyone, if you find yourself in need of a family law attorney, run, don't walk, to see Tiffany.
I found Tiffany Hughes through AVVO and hope that my recommendation will help others who may be in search of a domestic violence lawyer, Orders of Protection and/or divorce. I was accused of a crime that I did not commit by my wife who was angry at me and wanted to retaliate against me to take me away from our kids. The first couple of lawyers I spoke to made light of the situation, encouraging me to agree to a mutual restraining order, I didnt want that. I turned to Tiffany hoping that a female lawyer might have more empathy, and that is definitely what I found. It was of the utmost importance that I had a lawyer who truly believed in me and who I am as a person, understanding that I would rather pay the money for defense all they way through trial if necessary versus pleading out to just make it go away. Tiffany got that and supported me 100%.
Tiffany believed in me and worked so hard for me. She immersed herself in my case, keeping me updated at least weekly if not more often. She prepped me for trial, and I knew what to expect. This case was not the typical case, with her having to deal with all the craziness from the people who had made the allegations against me. She handled it brilliantly, with her reactions likely helping lead to the dismissal of the order of protection.
This was one of the hardest periods of my life and I would not have wanted to have handled it without Tiffany by my side. She is ethical, hard working, motivated, passionate about her job and her clients, and tough, all while maintaining a sense of humor. I loved that she made me laugh at times when I might have wanted to cry. Thanks to her, I stuck to my guns and we got through the hearing on the order of protection and now she is helping me with my divorce. Hire her. You won't regret it!
I hired Tiffany for a domestic violence case a few months ago. My wife had me kicked out of my own home and was trying to take away my kids. She got a temporary restraining order without even telling me and I was locked out of my house when the police knocked on my door. Gina went to the hearing with me and we had a trial that lasted the whole day. At the end, the judge denied my wife's restraining order. Gina got me 50-50 custody of the kids. I am very grateful that she was there for me. I highly recommend Tiffany for any issues with Orders of Protection that you may have.
My number one goal was to stay out of court if at all possible and with Tiffany this became possible even when there were several times it seemed impossible - she kept listening to all my suggestions on how to get the other person involved and willing to try to settle. In several ways I am not sure that you would call my case typical probably far from it. All that matters to me is that I did not have to go to court very often and when I did Tiffany would cover it so I never had to take off time from work. It was a peace of mind for me and Tiffany made it so much easier for me to get through this process.
Tiffany is absolutely amazing, she is a lawyer that is honest , compassionate about people. She is more concerned with family staying whole and healthy as possible in a difficult time than at getting even with the other spouse. She truly listens and understands the emotions that go along with divorce. She is upfront and honest about how she perceives the circumstances, even when she knows that this will be the hardest talk to have with her client that she cares about so much.
She ultimately leaves the decision up to the client. THANK YOU Tiffany for all your support and quick responses to all my questions and concerns.
