I hired Brad for a landlord\tenant issue. I must admit during my initial consultation with Brad I was kind of put off by his use of foul language and demeanor. But I thought that maybe he could be just the type of individual I need to address my issues with my landlord. There is a saying "go with your gut" , however I didn't and hired Brad anyway. He required many meetings, that were kind of pointless and a waste of time. I was asked by Brad to label pictures, upload this and that, type a list of damages and the original costs of items. Brad would request meetings in person or via phone to discuss pointless things such as budgeting, how I could probably afford more rent than I am paying now, or how I should eat out less or take lunch to work. How does this pertain to my case??? He even tried to give relationship advice.... What this had to do with my issues ... I don't know. When it came to Brad actually contacting my landlord, to what I can see on his client portal, there were two letters sent and three emails. I questioned Brad in terms of the lack of aggressive representation (this is what I was promised) he then referred to his flat fee and how he did so much more work than what I actually paid for. He also wasted my time once more and scheduled a meeting with me to tell me I couldn't afford his fees for continued representation, and I didn't provide him with " enough pictures " to prove my case. He totally bypassed my rights as a tenant in the state of Illinois. If you look on his website, he states that he doesn't care if the client needs to speak to him frequently etc.. in my case I didn't need all his useless meetings or "reverse psychology games" I needed him to follow through, which he clearly had no intention on doing. To add insult to injury, he offered another legal service to my family at a flat fee " reduced " rate. Which was still far overpriced by the way. I requested copies of all the other "work" he did on my case and I am waiting to see the results. I definitely was not satisfied with Brad's services and would not use him again.

Family law is messy and often unpleasant. Brad is not only highly professional but also understanding of the complexities inherent in family matters. I highly recommend Brad both for his professionalism and his compassionate approach to resolving matters.

I highly recommend Bradley L Schencker. He is an excellent representative of legal professionalism and is committed to what is best for the client while being cognizant of the law and legal system. Brad represented me in a family law case. He was my second lawyer after it became painfully aware to me that my first lawyer did not give a damn about what was best for my child. I found Brad through Yelp and after meeting with him for the initial free consultation I knew he would do everything he could to help me. I hired him and never looked back. He is responsive, responsible, positive, professional and was always available to communicate with me when I wasn't sure on something. Brad took control of a negative situation and turned it into a positive one for my child and me. Going through any type of legal situation is extremely stressful, and Brad helped calm my nerves while correctly assuring me that I would be happy. I was skeptical at first but I can honestly say I could not be more pleased with the outcome of my case. I trust him and will not hesitant to call him in the future if I am ever in need of a lawyer again.

Brad represented me in my divorce. He understood both the law, but also the emotional component of a divorce. He was respectful and focused on protecting not only my needs but the needs of my children. He was available for questions and because of his flat fee policy, I was never afraid to call or email him or his team with questions.

I have contacted Mr Schenker to help with my son's divorce. I had prior experience with family attorneys, and, more often than not, their ‘can-do attitude’ does not go past the first meeting.
This was not the case with Brad Schenker. He clearly explained what can be done, what he will do, and what we should expect. And that is exactly how it was. Always clear, always to the point. Outstanding work ethic. Always responsive and on time with necessary communications. His flat billing has saved us tons of money, too. Strongly recommend.

Brad was able to help my family with important estate planning and completed this in a very timely manner. He explains the legal terms well and was able to bring in humor and fun to a serious and dry topic. I would recommend him for your legal help.

I am so happy that I used Brad as my attorney! Brad was able to help me with a personal situation and was get the outcome I needed. Throughout the whole time Brad kept me informed with the case and was always easy to reach. The fee that Brad charged was reasonable and there was no games with needing more money. I would recommend Brad to all my family and friends and will definetly use him again if another legal matter arises!

Brad is the kind of lawyer I always want on MY side! He kept me informed of exactly what was going on with my case, was available to answer any questions I had, gave thorough explanations of each step in the process, and really fought for what I wanted. And I really loved that he brought his office to me- wherever and whenever I wanted! I never expected to have such a positive experience with a lawyer, so I'm very glad I found Law To You.
