Great Experience
Linda is amazing! The home buying process can be very stressful during the best of times, that stress is exacerbated during a pandemic. As a first time homeowner I had many questions, concerns and fears, Linda answered all of my questions in a timely manner, she was patient and knowledgeable. Linda made my home buying experience a positive one.

Linda was great. She thoroughly explained the whole process. Anytime I left her a message she always got back to me the same day. She answered all my questions, and made the whole process as easy as possible. I would definitely use her services again. I highly recommend her.

Linda and associates went above and beyond with my short sale
After having our condo in Elk Grove for sale for nearly 2 years, we all but gave up and were at our wits end. I'd passed Linda's office a million times and, on a whim, thought I'd stop in and ask what my options were for getting rid of the condo. She was very friendly and quickly explained that a short sale should be possible and how to get started. That evening I emailed her my info and she and her team got to work. The process is very lengthy and drawn out by the bank and HOA, but Linda kept me (and my real estate agent) well informed and was quick to respond with any questions we had. In the end, Linda and her team were able to get the short sale approved and we didn't have to pay the nearly 25 thousand dollar deficit! We couldn't be happier and would definitely recommend Linda and her associates for their legal advice and expertise.

Wonderful Lawyer
Linda Bal was our real estate lawyer for our recent home sale. She did an excellent job representing us at the closing and helping us gather all the necessary documents. She handled several last minute negotiations with our buyer and with her expert guidance helped us to close and collect our funds in record time. Our daughter also used Linda on her real estate closing earlier this year with the same excellent results. We were lucky to have her for our attorney and highly recommend her to others.

Rock Star!
Linda is a terrific lawyer. She is a pleasure to work with. Extremely organized and in control. We used Linda for a real estate closing. When the buyer tried to walk at the last minute, Linda calmly laid out our options and gave us good advice on the best path forward. She gave us frequent status updates on our closing and was available after hours. We will definitely use Linda again for our next purchase.

Fantastic Attorney
Linda is caring, understanding and passionate about being a Lawyer. She made a very, very difficult situation for me, which seemed impossible, easy to overcome with her dedication, knowledge and . From day one, she was non judgemental and jumped right in to help me. She is trustworthy and is just an Angel sent to help me along the process of selling and buying a home. I can't say enough great things about her and I did not only gain a Lawyer, I gained a friend. She has your back!! Thank you Linda for everything. You Rock!!

Assiduous Attorney
My partner and I retained Attorney Linda Bal to manage the closing of our commercial property. Based on personalities, lethargic communication, and other variables, the sale of our property was far from average. Linda Bal did an outstanding job at keeping our best interests at the forefront of her decision making and actions. Linda's advice and due diligence mitigated all of our concerns, and worries. I highly recommend Linda Bal for any Real Estate transaction that you are faced with.

BEST REAL ESTATE LAWYER!!!!
The VERY BEST REAL ESTATE LAWYER!!! I was recommended to Mrs. Linda Bal by a family friend who is a very good and experienced Real Estate Agent. I purchased the home I was renting, directly from the seller no Realtor involved. This was a lot of work but Linda along with my Lender made this experience wonderful!! To me and my family she was Mother Theresa, to the seller's attorney she was like a Shark from the TV show "shark tank"! I loved it!! She will honestly try to get you every dime that you deserve, will be on your side from start to end!! Extremely professional! I can’t say anything about the 1st comment left, everyone is afforded their opinion but I didn’t see any of this with Mrs. Linda Bal. Her staff was amazing and always answered all of my questions or concerns quickly and thoroughly. Always readily available. At closing I met her for the first time in person, the rest of the time was via email and phone. This is the 2nd property I have purchased, I can say that I have never had anyone work so hard for me or take the time to explain everything so carefully for me with anything!!! The work she does is just amazing!! SHE IS NOW our family’s attorney for All Real-estate matters and for IRS TAXES. Her husband and her also do taxes, husband worked for the IRS previously, both of them make a powerhouse team that will work for you to get every dollar that you worked hard for! YOU WILL NOT REGRET getting her as your RealEstate Attorney! MILITARY Friendly!!!

Wills in a Living Trust
My wife and I met Attorney Linda Bal after she was referred to us by a good friend. My wife and I needed wills and a trust. I had been familiar with wills that my sister and father -in- law had shown me and both suggested that I use their attorneys. We met Linda in her office and she explained to us what was needed to make a "Living Trust". We were both amazed that a Living Trust contained not only our wills, but other documents that were necessary when either my wife or I are incapacitated or die. We had many questions about the documents in the "Living Trust". Linda answered all our questions in a way that we could understand the answer. She did not use legalese terms. She fully explained the legal terms in all the documents. We received the original documents from her. We also received an Estate Organizer Book. This book contained copies of all our original documents. This book also contained instructions and information for our children when it is needed by them. Linda Bal is a very pleasant and knowledgeable person. I would recommend her to any one that needs a will or a "Living Trust".

A great attorney and a sweet person!
Attorney Linda Bal helped me get a fresh start with my Bankruptcy. She explained how the bankruptcy worked and guided me through the entire process. After the bankruptcy was over and my mortgage debt was discharged, Attorney Bal and I talked about the benefits of a short sale and how a short sale worked. Once we had an offer, she gave me many updates so I knew where we were in the process and even got me the paperwork ahead of time so I did not have to be at the closing. Attorney Bal was very helpful, especially a year after my bankruptcy and short sale. She assisted me regarding tax forms from the mortgage company and other important information for my taxes. I would highly recommend Attorney Linda Bal as a Bankruptcy and Short Sale Attorney.

Linda truly has earned my trust-
I hired Linda two years ago to represent me in my bankruptcy case. I interviewed with another firm that is very well known and publically advertised prior to interviewing with her. I found Linda to be much more personal and sympathetic to my situation . That was very important to me. In addition to that, she was very knowledgeable and her fees were far below the widely advertised competition. I chose to go with Linda for obvious reasons. She did not prove my intuition to be wrong. I would highly recommend Linda and her expertise to anyone.

Appreciative and Helpful Experience
Linda helped negotiate the short sale of home in late 2014. It was a long 14 month process but she stuck with us and got it done. Thanks Linda!

A Great Lawyer who sets High Standards for Integrity, Ethics, and Professionalism
I have had the opportunity to work with many lawyers in my lifetime but none better than Linda Bal. She is knowledgeable, informative, understanding, and takes a professional interest in your legal matter. Linda and her excellent staff kept me informed every step of the way through my legal proceedings. She was thorough in accessing my financial situation and offered great advice going forward in the future. Linda has restored my faith that a lawyer with integrity and ethics still exists. You are truly the best at what you do Linda. Thank you again for being my legal advocate and giving me a new lease on life. You are a miracle worker.

Great Lawyer, Great Help, Great Integrity
Linda Bal was one of most competent, knowledgeable lawyers with whom I have dealt. Our real estate transaction was complicated by the fact that there were 3 sellers. All from different parts of the country with little knowledge of the Chicago area or real estate practices, laws, and procedures. Further we were under tight time constraints and often we didn't all agree. Her patience and suggestions were invaluable. As this transaction took place long distance for us we needed someone with integrity and trustworthiness. She was excellent. She knows her stuff inside out. She was perfect for our situation.

Respectful, Knowledgeable, Very Patient
In July 2013 I needed a lawyer quickly and Linda was actually recommended to me thru my union. Linda made me feel at ease, she was very patient as she listened to my situation, listened to my questions and concerns. When my case required some court appearances on short notice, she was there. She negotiated a settlement for me and last week I contacted her as my settlement is coming to the end and once again she has been very patient, respectful and providing great legal advice. I definitely would recommend her.

Thank you Linda
Linda was extremely helpful to me in a time where I needed a compitent , and knowledgable attorney. She is both of these things. I came to her on a very short notice, as my case was pressinhg, and Linda got my case filed, and scheduled in time to avoid even further issues. I highly recommend Linda to anyone that needs a Lawyer to explain & manage their situation before it becomes a much larger issue .
