Mr. Gilbert was the only atty who replied of the 5 I inquired of about accepting a $17K collection case on a contingency basis. He only works on them on an hourly basis.

Colin has always been able to explain my legal issues in terms I can relate to and understand. This has been critical in determining the course of action we have taken both legally and financially.

I've used Colin for a number of legal matters. He's closed every property purchase I've made in Illinois. I've discussed business structure, employee contracts vs independent contractor contracts, and confidentiality agreements. He's been extremely responsive and is always trying to look out for my best interest even when it means he might make a few dollars less. He's graciously given me liability advice (unsolicited) regarding my Non-profit organization. As a young physician who runs a conglomerate of companies I've tested Colin's character and knowledge across the board of attorneys I consult with, not just around Chicago but the country, and his character and willingness to do the extra to ensure you are satisfied sets him apart like no other. He will be a staple in my legal team and my primary council for the rest of our lives.

Having known Colin since we started law school years ago, he is an honest, intelligent and decent man and a great lawyer. He has shown himself over the years to be a person you can trust and rely on, and conducts himself in both a friendly and professional manner. Any client would be in good hands with Colin representing them.
