Welcome to Metz, Gilmore & Vaclavek, LLC
People often consult an attorney to solve a problem or seek advice, and it can be a confusing, stressful, frustrating, and even frightening time. It is during these trying experiences our firm is more than an office or a place to conduct business. 
We are an integral part of the community and a trusted resource for people in need of clarity, objectivity, and professional advice and assistance. We appreciate how intimidating the legal system can appear to people who do not work within it every day, and we provide the best legal representation possible in order to remove some of that stress and worry from our clients’ lives.

Would not recommend
I was charged over 300 dollars just for Carl Metz to look into seeing if my probate case was something he was able to handle in Mchenry county. Since have heard nothing from him, and then received a bill for over 300 dollars weeks later. Would not recomend
