Kelly listened very well took the time to understand exactly what I needed. She was extremely supportive and passionate for my case. I couldn't have asked for someone better. She knew what I wanted before I did. Thank you, Kelly!!!!
Attorney Giraudo was a companionate and a strong attorney for my battle to get full custody of my two young boys. Mrs. Giraudo had all her bases covered and spent many of hours on the phone with me addressing my concerns throughout the duration of my trial. Thank you very much for all you did for my family! If you are looking for a firm that does everything in their power to “Win” your case then these ladies are worth checking out, they are hardworking, companionate and trustworthy.
We have worked with Kelly numerous times over the last several years to modify existing child support/custody orders. Kelly is professional, knowledgeable & quick to respond to any inquiries or questions. She is very effective in courtroom proceedings and has consistently been able to obtain favorable outcomes for us. Kelly is always prepared and looking out for our best interests while also being fair and ethical. At every critical turning point, Kelly has been able to provide advice & options to move us in the right direction. Kelly is not only an excellent attorney, but she is an ally and advocate for you & your case.
Kelly Giraudo is an exceptional lawyer. Kelly was able to remembered every detail of the case when offering her advice or opinion so that I never felt trivialized. I felt understood, and because of that, I felt well represented on both a personal and professional level. She did not waste a moment of my time; she was always to the point and focused. Knowing the law is what is expected, and Kelly definitely knew the implications of the law at every negotiating point. I never found her to be too busy to answer a call or an email, and whatever I disclosed to her was kept completely confidential and added to her resources for the case as a whole. She kept things moving and I felt that my case had the best possible outcome. I cannot say enough about her professionally and personally. If you want an attorney who will keep everything about you in mind when you engage her services, you will not disappointed. Truly, she is exceptional.
I am very pleased to have had an opportunity to have Kelly as my lawyer. My divorce took over 3 months before being finalized (which was due to my ex) and Kelly was supportive throughout the entire process. Kelly was determined to get my divorced finalized regardless of any obstacles we ran into. She is hard working, knowledgable, and fair about the divorce laws in Illinois. She is also very easy to talk to, and extremely understanding. She was willing to answer any question I had at anytime. I felt comfortable with emailing her questions (and yes I had a lot) during the entire process. She also responded to all of my questions and kept me informed of all the details. I could not have been more pleased!
Integrity and Honesty are two very important core values of what I was looking for in an attorney. The future of my children are my highest priority. An attorney with weak morals and a lack of integrity could ultimately affect that outcome of my children's safety and future. Kelly Giraudo has the highest regards for integrity and will be upfront with you with an educated and honest opinion when dealing with your case. No two cases are alike but all have a starting point that may be much different from the outcome. Expect that you will hear the best case scenario as well as a point blank worst case scenario with no hidden agendas. Kelly has always been punctual in returning my calls, has provided me with answers and directions I needed to move forwards, and been upfront with me about what my perceptions were and what was simply reality. Bad information from friends who though they were helping, as well as what the internet had to offer proved to be very different from what the law read and what previous case studies outcomes showed. Kelly and her legal staff provided me with those answers that I was needing to hear and represented me and my family with respect and sensitivity in my cases. You will not be disappointed with what service she will provide you and your family in your case. She has had a positive outcome in all three of my court cases. Thank you.
Attorney Giraudo was incredibly strong and caring during a difficult domestic violence/ child custody/ divorce case. Kelly pushed for supervised visitation to ensure that my children were protected. As a mother, she understood my feelings of keeping my kids safe. She also was swift to advise me to make challenging decisions and present both sides with knowledge, professionalism and experience. In the end, I was able to stay in the marital residence and keep the equity in my home. The children slowly transitioned to visitation with the other parent and were able to keep a sense of "normal" during a traumatic situation. Most recently, I hired Attorney Giraudo to represent me in a child support case. I know that she has every intention to fight for the child support that is rightfully owed to my children. Due to my positive experience, I have referred her services to another family member. Hiring Kelly was the best move that I made to insure the greatest outcome for myself and my children.
