Excellent representation
When Glenn represented me, he was very courteous and fair to me. I really appreciate his patience and wisdom throughout the negotiations and settlement, especially when I was ready to give up. Glenn did a great job and the matter would not have ended successfully without him! I highly recommend him!

Represented my spouse for a collection of back wages
My spouse is a shy person who allowed her employer to take advantage of her big heart. He fell months and months behind over a year's time. We hired Glenn after interviewing a few other attorneys. It took about 3 years of sporadic payments.deception and broken promises by the employer together with actual lawsuit to bring the matter to a close. It took great patience and resolve to deal with an employer who tried everything in the book to escape paying the back wages. We found Glenn to be forthright, honest and communicated on a regular basis as necessary.

I selected Mr. Gaffney because I previously saw him put a client's best interest ahead of his own financial gain. I knew he would only advise me to continue a lawsuit if there was a good chance of success. He is smart, efficient, professional, honest, effective and very approachable. He used his time economically. He is an outstanding writer and was able to take my narrative and put it into a persuasive document which was ultimately successful. I highly recommend him.

Represented my case in a complete and professional manner.
Glenn Gaffney worked with my ERISA issue in what seemed like an endless amount of paperwork and issues. He took care of all of them, and always represented himself in a professional and respectable manner.

Very Good Attorney
Mr. Gaffney did a very good job with my case. He was extremely professional and went beyond the call of duty representing my case. I'm very satisfied with the outcome of my case and I would recommend his services in the future. Thanks again for all your help!

Highly Recommended
Mr. Gaffney is simply the best. It's comforting to have someone of this caliber working on your behalf. He is listed as a "Super Lawyer" for good reason on both a professional and personal level. He represented me on an employment matter.

HORRIBLE ATTORNEY. Extremely inadequate representation and ignorance of important facts in our case.
Inadequate in every way. Horrible communication. Did not file extremely important documents for arbitration. Did not return phone calls. Very poor representation of client in front of arbitration panel. Glenn R. Gaffney failed to review paperwork and mount a case during discovery. He is the worst attorney I've ever done business with. He is never reachable and the attorney who referred us to him told me that he is not good at returning phone calls. He was an embarassment to my family because he was obviously the worst attorney in the room. He did not care about our case and it showed in the filings. He billed us for time he did not work on our case and inflated his billing dramatically. His billing was dishonest. Please let my misfortune be your warning. My family replaced him before our trial date, but his lack of filing important documents really hurt us in court. I plan to file a formal complaint with the Illinois Bar.
