One of my best friends referred me to Becky and it was the best thing that could have happened to me. I just had the worst lawyer experience before I met Becky. I will never switch lawyers again. She is professional, brilliant, and extremely skillful. She was so patient with me as I had many questions and concerns about the whole process. She knows exactly how to get justice when someone is owed money or has been wrongly accused. She is fair and honest. I actually felt a little sorry for my ex-husband as his lawyer never stood a chance against my lawyer. She worked with me as I struggled financially throughout the process due to the delay with COVID. It has been a real pleasure to have her as my lawyer and I owe my wins and justice to her because she really fought hard for me and my two daughters. I always highly recommend her to everyone who needs a lawyer as she made a substantial difference in my life and my daughters’ life. I truly don’t know how I would have gotten through all of this without her expertise and compassion.

I have hired Becky on multiple cases involving difficult post divorce situations. Becky has strong knowledge of the laws governing divorce parents rights. She knows the judges at rolling meadows court house. Becky is very personable, communicates very clearly, and most importantly I can trust her with my representation. Becky is very responsive when you reach out to her. As much as I hated the court process is also as much as I enjoyed working with Becky.

Moved my slow case to her, during consultation, after asking if she would fight for me. The majority of the work was done by previous attorney whom started to drag his feet. Heard from both attorneys how it was a simple case and shouldn't take long", as it continued to drag on with accumulating cost. She made no advancement, if anything added insult to injury as she had charged for meeting with adversarial lawyer, during discovery, to educate him on bank statements since he didn't "understand". She reversed the charge for that meeting but soaked me enough in other charges for work which advanced my case no further than the previous lawyer. Divorce lawyers are very good at seeing how much monies you have and how far they can drag it out separating you from your funds and the courts do not care. I do not recommend her. Shameful

By a long shot Becky did an outstanding job handling my case. Was extremely reasonable, professional & responsive. Also an expert in the new divorce laws that went into effect in 2019.

I highly recommend Becky if you are going through a separation/divorce. She responded to all my questions, emails, phone calls immediately and would always follow-up and get my questions answered. As my case got a little stressful, she remained calm and did all the "homework" she had to do to make sure I was taken care of. She reads through all the documents that are given and is always prepared- many lawyers DO NOT do that and are not prepared. She makes a very stressful situation a lot less stressful!

I interviewed four different attorneys to handle my divorce case. After I met with Becky I knew I wanted her to see me through my case. From that first meeting Becky gave me a sense of her knowledge and willingness to handle any situation. With each meeting Becky was straight forward, but understanding at the same time. She kept to the matters that needed discussion, which kept me at a highly emotional time on track. She took time to explain everything to me. We discussed many different options for the ultimate outcome of my case. I now feel after finalizing, that it was the best outcome possible for me.
Becky was very respectful of my financial situation and did everything in her power to keep the costs down. I appreciated this so much.
I have had a few legal questions following the closure of my case. Becky has promptly and very thoroughly answered each one of them.
I highly recommend Becky Zeilenga to anyone in need of legal guidance.

We have worked with Becky for almost 3 years. She has exuded professionalism, attention to detail and a caring “bedside manor” from the very first phonecall until our case was settled.
We had a very dufficult case, but Becky explained every step and prepared us for possible outcomes and all consequences.
From initial consult, preparing for trial and eventually negioating an agreement she delevered at all stages.
Pricing and costs were clear and reasonable.
Bottom line Becky Zeilenga is a caring, responsive and can be tough when needed family law attorney.
I recommend her without reservation.

Divorce is insanely difficult for most of us and my divorce was no different. My marriage of 15 years ended and had a number of somewhat complicated aspects...contentious spouse, non-working spouse, somewhat complicated assets, and an aggressive attorney on the other side. Becky maneuvered, in every instance, with skill and thoughtfulness and in a way that was also very personal and personable. I hear complaints about divorce attorneys all of the time and I met a good number of very bad divorce attorneys with no scruples or ethics. Unfortunately, it is more common than one could ever imagine with divorce attorneys. It is relatively rare to find such a personable and skillful divorce attorney that has your best interests at heart while also being an effective and efficient attorney. Becky is one of those attorneys. She will work to advance your standing in a divorce, however, like all legal matters, it is just natural that you can't get everything you want. Most importantly though, Becky is a fair minded and dedicated attorney that will work closely with you to achieve the best scenario that can be achieved. She will not over promise you or instigate you into unnecessary actions or charges. She will guide you to the best possible solution and work to achieve the best possible solution. When attorneys are not straight with you and when they do whatever you want, they garner more fees. Becky does not operate that way. She is pragmatic and even when I didn't want to hear the reality at certain intervals and when I wanted to litigate more and more, she was always the voice of reason and very pragmatic. The law is actually kind of straightforward, and maybe not always logical as far as my prism is concerned, however, Becky knows the law really well and can maneuver to your best solution and with an efficiency that will keep the costs as minimal as they can be. Trust me when I tell you that there are far too many divorce attorneys that simply want to see both parties fight endlessly. Unfortunately, the law is plain enough to understand that fighting between two parties only ends up benefiting the attorneys. If you are reading this review, good luck in your divorce process as it is not typically an easy process. Just keep your head about you and I can only hope that you are smart enough and lucky enough to have an attorney like Becky in your employ.

I met Becky on a Saturday morning in her office and hired her on the spot! After using numerous attorneys in the past (total of 4) who all failed to accomplish anything and made things worse, I finally felt confident that this could be the year that things turned around for us. Up to this point my daughter had already spoken to a Judge in chambers when just a young teen, and although there were some changes to non-custodial parental visits and child support it wasn't the best scenario for my child. After explaining the entire overwhelming story to Becky, we had a court date that coming Monday (meaning she had to get all these documents and case ready over the weekend) we appeared in court where a different Judge requested my daughter be present and met with her in chambers (now 16 years old) with both attorneys present. It was the best day of our lives! Becky has a really wonderful professional demeanor, great relationship with other attorneys and Judges and this was the turning point for my daughter. After many stressful years (total of 17) in court, we finally won and the Judge ruled in our favor. My daughter was finally able to focus on her school work, applying to colleges and finally have a life free of court houses, speaking to multiple Judges and GAL's. I am able to say, without disclosing too much about our case, that visitation was now not only diminished but also supervised which was a huge sigh of relief. I owe this to Becky, had we met Becky years ago we wouldn't have to be in court for 17 years! In a few weeks Becky gave us our life back! I credit her extensive knowledge in family law (and talks you off the ledge if you feel you are close to losing it), her great relationship with Judges, Attorneys and GAL's and her calm, confident, truly caring demeanor. Becky gives you her all, she is always prepared, has all her paperwork, notes, documentations in order, is extremely organized and truly does an outstanding job of representing her clients. Finally, something that is important to me and that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE about Becky is that she is quick to call or email you back immediately (I sent her numerous emails and never once did I not get a reply), and this is comforting when you have last minute questions or concerns before a court appearance. She is truly a sincere, caring, honest individual. She will not sugar coat anything nor tell you what you want to hear. You will get HONESTY and what to expect at all times so there are no surprises. Again, had I met Becky years ago I would have alot more money in the bank because this case would have been resolved years ago and without spending a fortune on other attorneys who did zero for me. I wholeheartedly, 100% recommend Becky Zeilenga. You can't be in better hands and I truly mean that.
