Knowledgeable and honest
I consulted with Jeremy Spitzer on post decree matters. He came highly recommended and the recommendation didn’t disappoint. He was very knowledgeable, set realistic expectations, and was upfront and honest (which is very hard to come by). He gave me a direction and sound advice which aided in the upcoming proceedings. I am very thankful for his advice; it served well. The office is located in a great location in Waukegan near the courthouse and his paralegal is very easy to work with. I’m very happy I was referred to by Mr. Pritzer.

Beyond thankful!
There are not enough words to describe how amazing Jeremy Spitzer is. He is beyond knowledgeable, extremely easy to work with, and very patient. He made me feel as ease and confident that he was truly looking out for the best interests of myself and my children in a very difficult custody battle. He is very detailed in explaining everything to me and responded quickly to my emails and phone calls. He made me feel as if I was his only client he was working for. He is an amazing advocate, extremely aggressive for fighting for what is right for his clients and doesn't hold back any punches. Custody cases are rarely easy to deal with, but when things looked grim, he gave hope. I owe much to him and could never thank him enough. He truly has been a Godsend for myself and my children!

Power of Attorney and Real Estate Closing
We utilized Jeremy Spitzer on two occasions, once for a Power of Attorney and then for a Real Estate Closing. Both times Mr. Spitzer was very professional in preparing the necessary documents and in representing us at our closing. Everything was completed on a timely and professional basis. We would highly recommend Mr. Spitzer to anyone looking for legal representation.

The first time I met with Jeremy he explained very clearly how he would handle my case. He explained how the law works and what I could expect to be the end result. He displays patience, which was very helpful when things were dragging out longer than I wanted. He treated me with under standing. He did his job, got to the point, and did not drag things out just to increase my bill. Overall I would refer him to anyone who wanted a good fair Attorney to handle their case.

He did a fantastic job!
Before being referred to Jeremy Spitzer, I met with countless attorneys within the Lake County area. I was told an obscene price and timeline for my divorce from everyone else, and was just about ready to hire one of the insensitive lawyers that were trying to take advantage of my situation. Then I met with Mr. Spitzer and his team, and I finally felt at ease. He finalized my divorce for half the price and time as every other attorney had quoted. I could not be happier with the results, and I would gladly recommend him to anyone.
