Personal and professional team that went above and beyond.
I did some research and met with a couple of other attorneys before I found David del Re and Associates. I was seeking relocation and primary physical allocation for my son I had from a previous relationship. We were never married, and we had been primarily structuring a custody schedule on our own without court intervention. We split our parenting time quite equally, but my husband was being relocated for work out of state. I was told by one lawyer that I had no chance of succeeding, and another that didn't give me the attention I felt I needed to feel comfortable moving forward. When I met with David for our initial consultation, I left his office feeling like I had found what I was looking for in an attorney. An honest, down to earth, no nonsense attorney with integrity. I moved forward, with a very restrictive timeline, approximately three months between filing for relocation and allocation, to the date we had to leave Illinois. My sons father fought us very hard, and his lawyer ultimately used whatever gutless tactics she could to portray me as an unfit mother. David and Kat (another AMAZING attorney in his office) and their team took my emails, frantic calls, and answered them quickly, and not to mention kept me calm through one of the hardest things I have ever gone through. We ultimately did end up going through a hearing, which resulted in an agreement, but only because our judge urged us to because he was going to grant me the relocation. But regardless, it was the professionalism and character that my attorneys conveyed through their work that got us that far. If anyone asked me to refer them to an attorney I wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend their office. And while David was an absolute hard hitting lawyer, Kat Allen was my go to contact that kept me in the loop and was always capable of speaking to me on my level and extended empathy for the circumstances. They beyond saved my life, because without their services I can't say what position my family would be in now. My sons father and I still maintain a close relationship, and a liberal parenting and visitation schedule, because that is what was important and that is what we have dedicated ourselves to doing. I'm forever grateful I found David del Re and Associates.
