Best Law Firm in Illinois
Words alone cannot adequately express my profound gratitude for Jennifer Snyder and Gal Pissetzky. If you find yourself in need of legal representation, there is no need to consider alternatives; Jennifer and Gal exemplify premier legal counsel who promptly and effectively resolve situations. From the outset, I discerned that they were the perfect match for both me and my family. Jennifer exuded kindness, compassion, and unwavering availability, always ready to lend an ear or offer invaluable insights, regardless of the hour. Similarly, Gal consistently provided invaluable assistance, offering constant solutions to address any challenge with remarkable intelligence. Both Jennifer and Gal remained accessible, never exhibiting any reluctance to answer my calls, and consistently demonstrating a willingness to fully engage with the situation at hand. Despite the daunting nature of my circumstances, they provided constant reassurance, offering insightful analyses that infused positivity and meaning into the situation. Through their assertiveness and unwavering dedication to their clients, Gal and Jennifer swiftly uncovered crucial information that would have otherwise remained inaccessible, ultimately resolving all lingering issues. It was due to their aggressiveness and willingness to extend time to help, that the situation had defused so quickly. Their proactive communication was truly invaluable; Jennifer and Gal provided regular updates on the progress made and took the initiative to check in on my well-being, fostering a sense of relaxation and peace of mind. Not even people I know demonstrated the same level of genuine care and dedication to me as Jennifer and Gal. They are worth every investment and more, with any praise falling short of capturing their true worth. I wish to extend my deepest and most sincere appreciation to Gal Pissetzky, Jennifer Snyder, and the Pissetzky Law firm as an entity. They epitomize the pinnacle of legal expertise in the Midwest, consistently delivering results regardless of the challenges at hand.

The best lawyer in town
Guided me through a complex situation. She listened to me and answered every question I asked. Jennifer was available on weekends to answer my questions, was patient, totally understood my anxiety about the legal process and explained exactly what I could expect. I recommend her to anyone who needs a top notch attorney.

Best of the Best
Jennifer is a true representation of the a phenomenal lawyer. She took over our DCFS case after waiting 3 long years for trial and was aggressive and assertive with the getting us to the finish line in which she did and all charges were DROPPED. I would hire her for her services anytime. She is knowledgeable and has a passion for fighting for her clients. She ensured we understood each step of the process and were kept abreast of the proceedings. Words cannot express how grateful we were to have her take the lead in our case.

The best Attorney out there.
First and foremost, I want to thank this wonderful amazing Attorney Jennifer Snyder who has taken my case. Over the approximately last 2 1/2 years I have the pleasure to be represented by Jennifer. Never was there a point at anytime that I felt a need to question her judgement as to the direction of my case. I was given, in my opinion, the best possible representation, counsel and direction. I was always informed as to the progression and position of my case in a timely manner. Jennifer thank you for doing what God has sent you to do, great job. Ultimately my case was settled agreeably in my favor. WE WON YOU WON. In closing I want to extend my thanks to Jennifer for handling my case professionally and with the utmost integrity. I highly recommend this young lady to handle your case, your mom's or whoever is looking for the best attorney out there. Again thank you Jennifer.

Righteous settlement
As the treating physician of an individual that was the subject of multiple injuries sustained during his police custody, Ms. Snyder was recommended to my patient to handle his case. Her vast experience with the Lake County Judicial system was evident in her representation and reflected in the settlement.
