I have had Lynn involved with several cases. She's not the most communicative attorney I've had but that's partly because she knows what she's doing. Once she has enough information to move forward, she knows the process and has been pretty much right on with the expected outcome. Hopefully I won't need another attorney for court related issues but if I do, she'll be the first call. Reasonable rates for the level of service she provides. In one instance, 1/2 of what another attorney wanted who was only willing to work a deal rather than go to trial.

Hi contacted her a week ago and gave her many details of the issue that has been going on a few years. But a recent matter has come about directly related. She offered to go to the Des Plaines Police Dept. as they have been harassing me with no proof of anything I am doing. As I am not doing anything. She had me text her the front and back of my credit card. She charged $350. She did not obtain any information at all! She sent me only texts saying that there are no arrest warrant for me. I already knew this since I have not been arrested and no reason to be. She kept texting me to lay low and just let it go. So strange as I asked her to find out what the Des Plaines police need from me. They have been at my door twice in 2 months. I was not home but neighbor and mother heard them banging on doors and windows and calling my name. I called them to find out and was told to stop emailing. How can u email the police? She said they said nothing about emails. I'm thinking did u ask though why I was told that. She texts me to let it go. I don't even think she went to the police. Yet no mention of my $350 and no info. I'm disputing it with my bank. No service provided. Waste of my time also.

I'm shocked ! After consulting with 12 different Attorneys with 12 different excuses. I contacted
Lynn Palac who not only agreed to review the issue without a charge but subsequently proceeded to address the situation for a minimal charge but the astonishing part , WHEN MS. PALAC TELLS YOU SHE WILL CALL SHE DOES. THERE IS NO WONDERING WHATS GOING ON YOU ARE KEPT INFORMED.
Calls, emails, all returned in a timely manner. Not unusual to get a status update after business hours. Highly Recommend without any doubt.
Cash, Check, Credit card
