I'M POSTING THIS TO ANYONE CONSIDERING HIRING LAWYER CHRISTOPHER J HARDING: i just completed a child custody modification case in illinois successfully! atty harding allowed me to telephone him on at least "3" occasions during my case & provided guidance & free advice without any compensation!! (it's no joke) i strongly recommend anyone in need of professional, respectful, knowledgeable, experienced representation to speak with atty chris harding.

After many consultations with attorneys, I hired Chris to represent my child and me in an incredibly challenging custody matter. Chris is above and beyond professional, trustworthy, dedicated and honest. Chris and his assistant are always extremely responsive. For once, I finally feel legally protected. From day one, Chris has had our best interests at heart and always clearly communicates my options and his recommendations. Chris is a good man, a great lawyer and I would 100% recommend him. Attorneys like Chris are few and far between.

I emailed Mr. Harding about an issue that I needed advice on. He responded the same day within hours and provided me with all the information that I was seeking. He threw legal terms out but explained each one so I could understand. He gave me a step by step process on what needed to be done. Hopefully I don't need to hire a lawyer after speaking to him but if I do he will be my first choice.

My wife and I have had some very unhappy experiences with family law attorneys in the past. When my 16 yr old came to me and said she wanted to live with me I knew we were in for a very long hard battle and the dreaded search for an attorney. We came across Chris and set up an initial consult. From the very beginning he made us feel very at ease about the situation and was very sensitive to my daughters feelings, concerns and her need to know (or not know) certain things. The very first thing he said was he wanted to call the mother and see how the case was going to progress, judging by her response. We were a little worried what that might start but we trusted in him so he called and immediately found out it was going to be a fight.
Chris immediately went to work and never slowed down. He started filing request, sending emails and making phone calls. He made sure to let us know what was going on every step of the way. Chris always found time to answer any question or concern that we had. In the end (which only took 11 days) we got everything we wanted. My daughter is in her new school and her new home she seems so much happier. We get to see her smiling face everyday and couldn't be happier.
In the future I know if I ever need anything legal Christopher Harding will be my first phone call. He has been amazing through all of this and we couldn't have done it without him. Thank you so very much!

Extremely fast in responding to any questions or issues I had. Kept me very informed on all options and routes that were available to me. Was straight forward with me on the positive and negative aspects of my case. Really payed attention and was very in touch with what I hoped to achieve. Willing to fight tooth and nail for me! Great guy, great attorney. Thanks Chris

Chris was a fantastic attorney. He responded quickly and thoroughly to any questions and concerns I had. He took the time to know and understand my case on an individual basis even though it was not a big situation and he had other cases he was handling simultaneously. I felt like I received the best treatment from him at every turn. He was also very HONEST and does not take advantage of clients financially. I would give him my highest recommendation and will return to him again if I have any more legal needs. What a refreshing experience this was!!!

Although I did not retain Mr. Harding due to my own circumstances in Family Court now, I have found him to be the most diligent & helpful. Not only did he give good advice, but also directed me to some helpful places to research online to help my current case. Made me feel like I was already a client.

I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. He has respect for all parties involved. Anytime I had a question he was always there to answer. I could go into the office at any time and they knew me by name and face. He knows his work. He told me what the outcome was going to be and he was never wrong. Chris Harding is a GREAT attorney. Thank you for all of your help and everything that you have done.

Mr. Harding is an excellent attorney that I would highly recommend! He spent a lot of time on my case, and kept me informed of all new events, even though he had other cases to work on at the same time. He did a wonderful job of handling the opposing party and keeping things on track. He was great at keeping me focused on the end result and helped me put things into perspective. He was friendly and calm even when I was not, but knew when it was time to not be nice. He fought hard for me in court and was my voice during a very stressful time. In the end, I got everything I wanted and them some. I had 2 other attorneys and spoke to several others before hiring Mr. Harding, and they all told me that what I was asking for was not even possible. Yet, Mr. Harding and his hard work proved them all wrong! He is an excellent attorney to have on your side and I will use him again for any future problems that may arise.
