I worked with Ilana to represent me during a child custody case for my teenage son with an ASD. Initially, I hired another firm that she so happen to work for and she was the initial attorney assigned to my case. She then left the firm and started her own practice. I was reluctant to follow her because , at the time, I was confident with the attorney that was assigned to my case after her departure. Approximately a year later, I felt the issues I was having with my previous representation was hindering my case greatly and after reading the other clients reviews or my previous representation on this site of, I was convinced it was time to move on. Ilana was on the first of my list. I did reach out to other attorneys but I felt most confident with her. Since day one, she represented my case with a level of professionalism that you only get from someone who truly enjoys what they do, She responded to urged matters as time permitted and non-urgent patters in a reasonable time frame. Above all, I felt a sense of comfort knowing that I had a well educated and sharp minded person in my corner that is not worried about asking hard hitting relevant questions or making sharp, yet respectful, responses. I have no doubt that she will have a long and successful career in the legal field.
Ilana, the words 'thank you' are still not enough for what you've done for my son and I. Our outcome would not have not been the same without you in our corner. Sitting next to you in trial while you spoke with the witness gave me a sense of encouragement that words can't describe. And like it or not, Ilana, you're on my son's and I holiday greeting card list. :)
If you are dealing with a civil matter then reach out to Ilana. My custody case was literally one of the most important activities in my life. Prepping for the case took me years because I wanted to make sure bit of evidence I had was as close to perfect as possible. To be closer to my son and have the rights that I needed to protect him overshadowed practically every aspect of my life and to put that trust in her is the highest compliment I can offer.
I highly recommend Ilana in all your divorce/child custody issues. Ilana is a young professional who worked on my case with untiring effort,she stayed on top of my case ,kept me informed of legal proceedings at all times. Ilana replied my emails almost instantly,she is very easy to reach and returned every call I made to her. Wait,her price? You can't beat that... Thank you Ilana for your great help in such stressful and sometimes heartbreaking moments! You are the best attorney,ever!
Ilana was professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. She was always very open with communication, she made sure that I was kept up to date with the preceedings. She was always very detail oriented, and ensured that everything was doen in a timely manner
Ilana Tanner is a smart, conscientious attorney who takes the time to get to know her clients. She represented my daughter in a CPS case which was very stressful for our entire family but her balanced objectivity and sincere interest in the well being of my daughter helped us get through this very difficult time successfully. I would highly recommend her.
Ilana was the first attorney I had ever worked with and she made everything that I had to resolve with my custody case so easy and simple. She has amazing follow through and took the time to go over all of the questions and concerns I had regarding my case. She's knowlegeable and personable and I will never use anyone else.
Thank you Ilana for taking something so stressfull completely off my plate and getting it done. You are simply the best!
I really enjoyed working with Ilana, I was new to this entire process and she really made things as simple as possible. Cut and dry and what my clear options were. I emailed her several times a day because of questions I had about everything or things that confused me. I would get a response back the same day or the next. Even after my case was taken care of, I had a question and she still got back to me quickly to clear some things up for me.
I highly recommend Ilana to everyone. I referred one friend already and she loved working with her as well. I could not ask for a better attorney in the face of such an intense custody battle. Ilana inspires so much confidence in her clients. Ilana always responds to my emails, text and phone calls as soon as she can.
Ilana is very compassionate in helping others. She not only helped with my case, but my sister's as well. We are more than pleased and couldn't be happier with the service she provided us. Ilana was extremely informative in letting us know what was going on every step of the way. I wouldn't suggest anyone else when it comes to Family Law. Thank you again!!!!
Ilana is very compassionate to help her clients get what they deserve. I wouldn't recommend anyone else for representation for you and your family. She has forever helped change our family's life.
Ilana's title is " Lets get through this together" and as a long standing client of hers, I must emphasize the fact that she lives up to that statement.
I have been in a 2 year long custody dispute that has had some really strange things happen and Ilana has been present for almost a year of that case. Ilana was not only professional but extremely dedicated to me, my case and my family. In fact, Ilana gave my daughter a little red stuffed bird to help my daughter get through all this.
As a lawyer, Ilana is very clear and honest, even when I didn't want to hear what she had to say, so be ready (and grateful) for that. Since she is representing you, she will tell you exactly what you are doing wrong and why. She will also help enforce what you are doing right and she teach you how to handle the case even after it is over.
If your case hits a road block she can't see a way through, she will spend hours trying to find a person, company or even a personal friend who can see how to navigate in the situation. I have had 2 other lawyers on this case before I met her, and both them were adequate, but Ilana went above and beyond. I am partially biased since I spent almost an entire year working on things with her, but I can say from a client's stand point that she is the type of lawyer you want.
You want someone who shows you your mistakes... so that you don't keep making them in the long run.
You want someone who shows you how to work with the results of your case after you have left the court room.
You want someone who sees you as a person, family and individual so they can represent you properly.
You want someone who explains things to you, no matter how many times you need it repeated, so that you don't feel intimidated with the legal system.
You also want someone who is going to cut right to the heart of the matter and get it done . This is important both financially and emotionally... no matter what your situation is. The legal system is emotionally taxing and the sooner it is solved the better off you will be. It's also important for your finances. Legal issues are expensive, that fact is unavoidable. Ilana will not beat around the bush with your issues causing you to lose your deposit in mistakes or unnecessary legal steps that never solve the problem at hand. She keeps you informed, asks your ideas on things and is completely transparent... she explains why you need to take the steps you do in order to finish your case. I have never encountered a lawyer who was like that. I am still completely satisfied by the service I got from her.
I wish her all the best . My family loves her and my daughter still hangs tight to the little red bird.
Thank you Ilana.
