Very poor
Poor communication and guidance. Exceptionally poor. Was not fought for. Felt alone during entire process. Paperwork incorrect including typos. Absolutely unacceptable. Should have hired someone else but that would have been unaffordable at that point.

The Law office of Riley N. Oncken is disgusting and deplorable at best.
Members of the Law office of Riley N Oncken sit on the board of directors of Safe Passage a domestic violence organization in Dekalb, IL meanwhile its attorneys will represent abusive partners for the right cost. This is a for-profit law firm with no true concern for abused children,individuals and families. It is very alarming for a law firm to be affiliated with a domestic violence shelter and then support and represent domestic violence and child abuse perpetrators.

Doesn't care about client
I was appointed Riley thru the courts. He did not return phone calls. He did not take anytime to help me move forward with a DCFS case. He only talked to me one consultation and then on the court dates. I had a problem with A subsidiary of DCFS (Luthern Social Service Ins) not moving forward to get me into the appts LSSI wanted me to do. He continued case month after month not contacting Social Services to move forward. Had too many cases appointed to him by the court. I was told he could spend more time on my case and get it finished if I paid cash. He shows up for the court doing the minimum. He wasted a year of my young children's lives dragging out unnecessary continuations.
