I won't get into details, but I was picked up for a domestic issue. Lynn was super professional and attentive to my needs. She seemed to know everyone at the courthouse and they were all very respectful and polite to her. She was able to help me out a great deal over the last year. Thanks Lynn.

I contacted her due to the fact that the Des Plaines police had been to my door knocking very loud two separate days in two months. I had been issued a $500 ticket awhile ago and I was charged with a misdemeanor and the case was dismissed. The ticket was for littering. Being harassed by the des plaines police most likely do to a neighbor problem. I asked her to please talk to the police for me and find out specifically what they want because it is not known. She said it would be $350 and she would oh there. Per her request I faxed her the front and back of my bank card. She texted me only the next day saying that she was told it was a neighbor dispute and she thinks I should lay low. I wasn't doing anything as that was the whole point. I needed the specific info to further the case of my family being harassed. She offered nothing. I asked questions and she only would respond by text saying to lay low. I asked if she would call this one persons name I had at the police dept as this he may provide more info and she first said she would then didn't and stopped responding. I only spoke to her the one time via phone. If she didn't understand she should have asked better questions before taking my $350. Really shady to just text next day as she knew she didn't offer anything but she refused to give any portion of my money back.

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.

I worked with Lynn for over 10 years when she was an Assistant Cook County Stateâ€™s Attorney. She was a brilliant hard-nosed prosecutor with and razor-sharp intellect and an easy-going manner. Lynn has a phenomenal knowledge of the law and has excellent court presence. If I were in trouble I would want Lynn to represent me.

Lynn Palac has represented me on two separate occasions, and I have been in touch with her regarding other issues as well. I was referred to her by a previous client who spoke highly of her. Both cases she handled were regarding traffic related issues. She was extremely helpful, willing to put in her time, and professional in the courtroom. She always got back to me in a timely manner and was not just looking for money from me. She is in the process of working on my home closing as well, and has kept me well informed along the way.
