Amil Alkass helped me get custody of my 3 children from an abusive and narcissistic ex. He was professional in court and updated me on what was going on with my case. easy to talk to and very personable. I would recommend.

Amil Alkass is wonderful.
Mr. Alkass took my Case pro-bono after meeting with him. I am so grateful for all that he has done for me and my children. I was scared and worried but having Mr. Alkass as my lawyer made it so so so much better. He’s smart, knows the law, and i think he know everyone in court. My case was in rolling meadows. I’m so happy and thank him so much for taking my case and getting my support

Mr. Alkass is an excellent lawyer!!!! He made a process that was scary so much easier. He told me what i should expect and it turned out true. He is really masterful in front of the judge. My husband’s lawyer was a liar and obnoxious Mr. Alkass handled him effortlessly. i will admit he’s not cheap but comoared to other lawyers i spoke with he’s worth every cent.

I hired Amil Alkass because I was being investigated by DCFS. He took on DCFS immediately and challenged them on their methods and their violations of my rights!!! Because of him, my investigation was terminated and the case was closed after 3 months of a nightmare with them. I hired him and 8 days later it was over. HE IS AN AMAZING LAWYER. I hope I never need him again but I know I can trust him with protecting me and my family.

Great divorce lawyer
Met with Amil Alkass last month for my divorce case. I was referred to him by a family friend of mine because I was told he was just a wonderful and smart attorney. I feel so comfortable knowing I am being protected and my rights will not be pounded on by my evil soon to be ex. Working with Mr. Alkass has been just wonderful. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE.

Knowledgeable, Trustworthy, and Reliable
I fully endorse Amil Alkass as a divorce lawyer. He is knowledgeable and pragmatic in his approach to resolving my divorce case. My wife had a bulldog of a lawyer and he tamed her. No regrets hiring Amil Alkass and Lavelle Law as my guy!!!!

Great lawyer
Mr. Amil Alkass was hired to finish up a divorce I had for over two years which my first lawyer never finished. I am now divorced and could not be any happier. I highly recommend Mr. Alkass!!!!!

Good lawyer!
Excellent lawyer. Hired Amil Alkass to represent me on a divorce case. My spouse and her lawyer kept trying to take my kids away from me. Mr. Alkass got me visitation right away even though my wife would not let me see my kids for over 9 months. We finished the case and he got me shared custody. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

Great lawyer and a great guy!
I would highly recommend Amil Alkass. Very experienced, knowledgable, and assertive. I know many people do not like lawyers, but he's the exception. An excellent person to work with. He is so personable and seems to know everyone in court, even my judge! Very happy with what he's done for me.

Excellent Divorce Lawyer.
I hired Amil Alkass for my child support case. He got me a great result with my case. His knowledge of the law and his court style is excellent. I have and will continue to recommend him.

I recommend Amil Alkass
Referred to Amil Alkass from a friend of mine who used his firm for her will. I used him to review my di orce settlement. Great attorney--he is both really personable and professional.

Overall a Great Attorney
Amil Alkass represented me on a pro bono basis after my first attorney withdrew because I could no longer afford to pay him to finish up my divorce and custody. Before meeting and hiring Mr. Alkass, I only had a two hours of vistiation with my son because my first lawyer failed to do anything to change that even though I always asked for that order to be changed. After hiring Mr. Alkass, I now see my son about 45% percent of the time and because of that i pay no child support!!! He did a great job closing out my custody case and my divorce, I could not be any happier. Without him, I would have ended up seeing my son maybe a day a week and still would not have finished with the divorce case. He is a great lawyer! Thank you, Mr. Alkass!

Very VERY knowledgeable.
Met with Amil Alkass for a consultation and hired him for an ongoing divorce. He is extremely knowledgable and answered my questions without sugar coating them or blowing smoke like some of the other attorneys I consulted with. He was honest nd straightforward and what he told to expect happened that way in court. He has the experience to handle cases from start to finish. He is great and so down to earth, a really likable man. I would hire him for any other legal work and would most definitely refer him to EVERYONE I know!!!!!!!!

Helped me close out my case.
I had a previous lawyer that was not moving my case along. He would have status after status with no progress. I fired my previous lawyer and retained Amil Alkass of Lavelle Law. Mr. Alkass sat with me for an 1+ hours at the initial meeting and discussed what my concerns were and what problems I was having with my first attorney and what issues needed to be resolved. Mr. Alkass, within 6 weeks, was able to set a trial date, negotiate a settlement with my wife, and concluded the case! Great to work with because he doesn't talk down to you. He approaches a divorce with a goal of settling the case rather than wasting money away on fees.

Great lawyer
I found him by searching for local lawyers . Mr. Alkass handled a divorce case for me. Great work, responsive, and easy to work with.

Great lawyer
Very great at what he does. Very compassionate and knowledgeable and very responsive. Divorce is a bad time but he seemed to make it less painful. thanks, Amil!!! ,

Hire Him
Let me first say that Mr. Amil Alkass is a professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate lawyer. He understands how emotional and stressful a divorce can be and guided me through my experience; he explained it "like having a death of a close family member; the emotions are all the same" He was RIGHT!! Whenever I had a question or needed advice about any issue, I would ask and he would respond in a way that explained things without over complicating the matter. Unfortunately, a divorce was not a place I wanted to be at this stage of my life, but working with Mr. Alkass made it a positive experience. My Husband was intent on dragging the case out and really had no reason to make it a quickie divorce. Amil explained my options for moving the case along and we eventually finalized the case with my husband really just walking out of the house. I hope to never divorced ever again, but working with Amil made it a bit more tolerable. I met with 2 other lawyers before I hired Amil Alkass' firm, and the first lawyer seemed to only discuss the retainer and nother else, the second lawyer, although nice, seemed to busy to return my calls to even schedule the time to meet with me for my consultation! If you need a divorce lawyer, hire Mr. Alkass!
