Steve Wasko. Absolutely the one and only person who was involved in our 5 year divorce that was impartial, compassionate, fair and able to diffuse the most difficult of situations. My ex and I both agree he was the one person who got to the core of our issues holding up progress and helped us navigate them efficiently and always with our children's best interest first and foremost. How often do you hear someone say they were extremely happy with an attorney? How often do you hear two people who spent 5 years getting divorced through an imperfect system agree on something? Steve took our very challenging case and simplified it. He was firm but fair always. I can't say enough about how much we appreciate his involvement in getting our lives to a place where we could all move on. Our family is in a better place than we could have hoped for because of Steve and his expertise. I recommend him without hesitation.

Steve Wasko represented me in my recent divorce, and it was a very positive experience. From explaining the law to me, helping me understand my position vs. my ex's, and what a "fair" approach would be, Steve was solid from start to finish. He particularly excelled the day of the filing, when last minute negotiations were happening and we wanted to file despite my ex and opposing counsel dragging their feet. Steve held firm on our core positions, and negotiated fairly on various points in efforts to cross the goal line. He maneuvered the court system to get our actions filed. He's very quick with numbers and has a knack for getting things done. I'd recommend him to any friends who need divorce or domestic legal services.

I highly recommend Attorney Steve Wasko! The outcome of my divorce and representation from Steve exceeded my expectations. Steve is professional, aggressive, fast-thinking, and trustworthy. Throughout my divorce, I always felt that Steve had me and my children's best interest at heart. His attention to detail and responsive gave me piece of mind during such a difficult time. He promptly returned my phone calls and emails and worked hard for a positive resolution of my case. Thank you Steve!

I used Steve for my very simple divorce. He was great in court and the judge heard our case first. That was in June, since then I have called him at least 50 times. He nor his office has not returned a call. The only thing I have received was another bill. I have had some very serious issues with my x regarding my children and custody and the police have been involved. I left messages and text and spoke with the girl in the office...still no reply from Steve. This has been very disappointing and aggravating considering my children custody could be on the line and I have already pId him $3600. If you decided to go with him I suggest you make sure he has time for you or your case will make him enough money.

He appeared to be very diligent with preparation while accumulating fees. One recommendation about a meeting requiring three lawyers for two hours was in my opinion an expensive waste of time and money that did not produce any result. The disappointing part was at the crescendo when he was from my perspective ineffective in front of the judge. Seems to just be going through the motions (I could say this about the judge as well). And then after much prodding he provided the weakest invoice I have ever seen. No detail just a lump amount with out any accounting that swallowed 98% of the retainer.

Having Steve as my lawyer, I actually felt like I wasn't even represented. He was very unprofessional! My Ex-wife got almost everything, I got all the bills and the shaft!!!!
Never use this attorney!

Steve is Honest, Very straight to the point, on time, trustworthy, and most important is fair. Many lawyers will tell you that he or she can get you this or that and keep taking money to try. Steve will cut right to the chase and tell you this is all you will get by law. He will not try to take you or anyone else to the cleaners. When you speak to him he talks with authority. He is relentless in his works. He will not lead you down the wrong path and will be straight with you. My divorce was going on for years then my ex-wifes cousin referred me to him and after this I was done in 6 months. No games, just results. I would recommend him to anyone who would need his services. You are in good hands with him. Guaranteed!!!!

At the time I met Steve by referral from another attorney, I absolutely had no trust for man. After the first meeting with him, I knew he was "different". After several years of legal counsel from him, I was speechless at his work ethic, his knowledge of the laws governing family and finally, his caring about me, his client! I am HIGHLY RECOMMENDING Attorney Steve Wasko. In fact, I personally think he should be a Cook County Judge in family court....a reality show would be in order too! Thanks Steve!

Steven Wasko is a lawyer who commands respect in his demeanor and knowledge of family law. His honesty is beyond reproach even when you would rather have a sugar-coating on the facts. I say this because divorce is emotional, difficult and the issues concerning children and property are a heavy load. When divorce is the only real option as in my case, Mr. Wasko makes the process as painless as possible. What I especially admired about him is that he constantly respects your time with him. He works collaboratively for the best interest of your family.
