Very Thorough Attorney
I retained Demitrus for a copyright infringment violation matter. I found Demitrus to be detailed-oriented, compassionate, and thorough in her approach to resolving my issue. She is also very approachable just in case you need to ask her questions about your case. I give her my highest recommendation.

Client
Ive met Attorney evans once and was sold at a trade conference, we had a long discussion about international business in Africa. At the time I was launching my company getting acquainted with a new market. Even though I was premature in my process she was still able to send advice and introduce me to contacts that have been helpful. Also one of her introductions was to a former client who had alot of great things to share about attorney Evans.

Attorney Demitrus Evans worked on my petition to the Illinois Supreme Court. The petition was detailed and all of the necessary case laws were included to back up my petition. All work was completed on time with no problems.

Efficient
I needed some information on creating a Series LLC to start my business. After speaking to Demitrus briefly on a Sunday she suggested that I call her firm and leave a message regarding my needs. The very next day Monday, I received an email detailing the information that I requested. The following day Tuesday I received a follow up call to make sure that I had the information and to answer any questions that I may have had. Now that's efficient. Everything was handled quickly, timely and in a professional manner. This is just a small indication of the level of excellent service that you can expect to receive from TEIL Firms. I highly recommend them. Reginald

Fighter with Honesty, Integrity and Diligence
After being in my home for only 19 months 2 huge corporations receiving $M(s)/yr in government funding pledged to make my home more energy efficient and have turned my newly acquired efficient home into an ongoing fixer upper nightmare. After being lied to repeatedly by these corporations about repairs to the awful damages incurred by them; I sought legal counsel from Attorney Demitrus Evans in January 2015 and during our initial interview I had no doubt that her representation was exactly what I had been looking for. I am confident because of her in-depth knowledge and charismatic delivery as she presents my case, guilelessly and with complete empathy. She enters the courtroom with a clear view of the dynamics of client cases. She and her team are awesome fighters; and, they believe wholeheartedly that their clients deserve ultimate representation and respect. I am not looking forward to another legal battle after this; but, if I should have one, Attorney Evans will be the first number I will call. Hoorah for you Attorney Evans. I hope that, in victory you rejoice always throughout your career. Thank you for believing in me and never waivering.

Excellent!
I was looking for some advice on a contract matter and Demitrus Evans was not only one of the first to respond, she gave me the most thorough and thoughtful reply. She went above and beyond in her consult and gave me the clearest advice. Much more than anyone else I spoke to. Going forward, I will not only use her but would recommend her to anyone seeking a truly expert and personal opinion.

Good Business Legal Services
I want you to know that I received my corporate books and I’ve completed my business plan. It’s so nice to know that I have the correct legal structure, and I’m thankful to my TEIL family for the work and encouragement.

Efficacy and Professionalism
Employing the services of Atty. Demitrus Evans was the best investment of resources to handle a complicated traffic case that involved two counties. Atty. Evans provided sound counsel, represented me very well in court and the outcome was favorable. The office staff members were also professional with follow-up and returned calls and provided overall good client services.
