Hands-on & personable—highly recommend!
Jessica recently helped me with a prenuptial agreement ahead of my upcoming wedding and guided me seamlessly throughout the entire process. Jessica did a great job at breaking down the legal terminology in a way I could understand while being attentive to my needs. I highly recommend working with Jessica if you're looking for a hands-on, personable lawyer.

A True Hero
Jessica Wiener and her law firm handled this difficult child custody case every step of the way, with both professionalism and compassion. Without the excellent advisement and knowledge of Ms. Wiener, I know that I would not have had the successful outcome that I did. When my son was born my world changed forever! My son means absolutely everything to me, and the thought that I could have lost him over false accusations would have left me heartbroken and devastated. Jessica helped me through the hardest time of my life, her hard work and encouragement gave me the hope and confidence I needed to be a positive influence in my sons life, during this extremely difficult process. Words cannot begin to describe how thankful I am to have had her on my side. Thank you again for absolutely everything Jessica Highly recommend!

Just what I needed!
Getting divorced is never easy, getting divorced during the COVID pandemic makes it that much harder. Jessica was there for me every step of the way. She helped me navigate and work through not only my emotions, but detailed every step of this process for me. She answered my (daily) messages :), talked me down when I needed it, explained to me that I needed to examine not only the here and now, but the future. That was EXACTLY what I needed. She was always professional, always showed she cared, and helped me get on the other side of the divorce process with dignity. Thank you Jessica!

Helps you have faith in the process
My divorce from my ex was acrimonious, lengthy and not without drama. Jessica kept me grounded in reality and was with me every step of the way. She was my advocate in and out of the courtroom, going the extra mile on numerous occasions, even preparing and filing an emergency petition on my behalf over a holiday weekend. She earned my trust at a time when I had very little to give and validated my concerns when my ex was making crazy demands. Jessica has a firm grasp of family law and builds relationships to ultimately reach positive outcomes. I highly recommend her.

Amazing Attorney
I met Jessica at a seminar at the Westin and after talking to her for a few minutes I knew she was exactly the person I needed in my corner as my case was turning from being amicable to becoming very hostile. She was able to take over my case very quickly and provide me with support and guidance that I didn't even know was possible. She takes time to listen and be there every step of the way, she is able to take emotions away and make you understand the facts. Jessica is not only extremely knowledgable of the law but makes this horrible process very painless because of her compassion and advice. If you are looking for a fighter who actually cares about you, is very quick to respond to any concerns you have then look no further. Jessica, unlike many other attorneys wants to be there for you and is extremely fair.

The Tiger You Need In Your Corner
Jessica was recommended to me when my wife filed for divorce and threatened to take full custody of my son. From our first meeting, she was able to describe the process and prepare me for the obstacles which were going to be thrown our way. She has done an incredible job representing me and helping me get what I cherish most in life; time with my son. I feel so comfortable having Jessica in my corner, knowing she wont let anyone push her (or me) around. Jessica has done a wonderful job of dodging darts thrown by opposing counsel, as well as managing me as a client. If I have to get divorced again (and I sure hope I don't), Jessica would be my first and last phone call.

Excellent Attorney
When I started my divorce process, I had no idea what to expect. I was referred to Jessica by a friend. Jessica made made me feel right away that she was ready to stand by me and help get my divorce finished quickly, but also tried to be fair for both myself and the ex husband. She was informative and clear with her answers. She was patient and intuitive with questions that I didn't know to ask. She did so with integrity and professionalism which isn't always standard in her industry. Jessica displayed impeccable attention to detail and she provided outstanding service even after our case was closed. I truly felt I was more than "just another case". She was available whenever I needed, to help me through my challenging time. Thank you for your assistance Jessica!

Amidst crisis decisions, Jessica was ready to go! She was thinking ahead and long term when I couldn't see the forest for the trees. She helped me to separate the emotions and reality of what was happening. Jessica was sure to comb through details and decide what was most important for my son and I. Grateful she was my navigator on the divorce journey.

When the best is needed
I met Jessica many years ago when she was the opposing counsel on one of my matters. Since that case I have referred many clients to her because I can depend upon her taking care of them to the best of her abilities. She is professional, smart, tough and clever. Just what a client needs when the client is in a tough fight. I would not hesitate to refer her to any of my clients. In fact, in her area of expertise, she has been my first choice.

Greatest Show I’ve Ever Seen
My name is Adam Blair. I’m a single father and professional musician. I’ve toured the world,written national commercial spots,had songs in Billboard Charts ,opened for The President and I would/did trade every bit of that in to be with my son. Since he was pretty much born I have taken the most direct care of him than anyone,yet almost 2 years ago he was taken from me . To say I was devastated,lost or incapable of comprehension would all be massive understatements . I needed a champion to fight for my family. On the suggestion of a friend I called Jessica L Weiner. When I met with her she spoke my language as a single mom herself. She wasn’t taken back my appreance or my job,she just saw I was a good father. Her poise was that of a Star . She had an amazing charm to her that could be felt tables away. A few days later she walked into court and with in seconds owned the room. I felt like I was at concert ! She instantly connected with the judge and child rep. She followed it with quips and jibes. Then ended it with sincerity and endearing banter. I thought to myself “WHAT A SHOW!!” I KNEW in those moments I made the right choice for my son and I . Through the hardest period of my Jessica gave me assurance. Through heartbreak Jessica gave me hope. Through utter pain Jessica gave me knowledge to make tomorrow better . But best of all Jessica gave me my son back! Please take a moment to fully digest that statement because every day for the rest of my life I have to and then I have to know who made that happen. That warm feeling I get in my chest when I see my son smile is because of the efforts and passion of Jessica! Jessica I pray to god you read this because I’m so proud and honored to have watched you in your element and beyond grateful for the results ..... my son. The English language has failed me because the words I use cannot possible express my feelings so I’m left with merely “thank you”. Your biggest fan, Adam

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I worked closely with Jessica on a matter involving one of our mutual clients who was going through a divorce. I represented that client in a personal injury matter. Jessica handled the divorce case with the highest degree of professionalism. She knows all the applicable law and is up-to-date on current cases and issues being decided by courts throughout Illinois. Jessica is also a compassionate person who understands how to work with and comfort clients going through a difficult time. Jessica is a strong advocate for her clients. She is respected by the attorneys she works with (and against). I highly recommend Jessica Weiner."
