Learn from my mistakes. I was married for 19 years, while I focused on being a good mom, my xhusbands focus was alcohol. Finally I had enough..I didn't have much money becuz my x was sneaky and thoughtless. Money was gone, hidden who knows...but I took the little I had s hired an attorney. She didn't really know the revised divorce laws and my x hired a very experienced attorney from the city. So after s year of basically fees with no results, she handed me off to her sister, this is where it gets interesting. After dealing with her sister and having her sister represent me in a pre-trial I began to have some doubts. I googled her, to my shock and horror she was practicing with a suspended license. I fired her immediately and found another attorney who happily took my money. He really did nothing to move things along, argued with me trying to accept a deal that was not equitable on my behalf. One day I called my x to confirm something and my x casually mentions that he spoke to my attorney over the phone. Again, horrfied and confused snd eight weeks from trial I had to find someone else. It was not an issue if money anymore, I needed someone dedicated, organized and determined. I interviewed Dan Kollias and knew he was the one. Dan had a huge mess to clean up and filter throught almost two years of paperwork. He came in on weekends, responded to every email, every call, kept me apprised as to what was going on. The piece of mind was priceless. I knew he would get the job done and he did. It's finally over, after almost two years and lots of bs I am happily divorced and happy with my settlement. Don't cheap out on your attorney, you need someone sharp, dedicated, result orientated, familiar with the new laws, not intimidated by other counsel and most importsnt ... is on your side!
Hire Dan Kollias

Dan is an excellent attorney. He let me know everything he could do for my case and made sure he was always a step ahead. He was very honest and always kept me in the loop of what was going on in my case. As a father in DuPage county he helped me get the primary residential custody of my son and recieve child support. He is very knowledgeable of the law. When the time came he had no problem fighting for me.

Let me start off by saying, I dont have a lot of money. I did not flinch when i got my final bill, due to the professional manner that Daniel handled my case. My case was a long case and had a lot of ups and downs. He held my hand the whole way thru. He responded to everything fast! There are emotional times in divorce, where you want to blow up on your attorney, Daniel took it all. He understands when there are children involved emotions run hot! He always put my mind at ease and explained everything. At first I was really upset with never getting good news. Then I figured out lawyers are like doctors. When they tell you that you have 3 months to live, then you never die you are happy! Well that was my case... I was always dying, but then I felt alive as I walked out of the court room!
I can also say this. As I went through a couple trials, I clearly saw how prepared Daniel was! He had everything prepared, typed out, a copy for me, and everything bullet pointed. At first I thought nothing of it until I saw my exs attorney fumbling thru books and paperwork in the process of the trials. Also as i watched other trials to mentally prepare for my own, I later appreciated Daniels attention to detail.
Bottom line is, I would highly recommend Daniel!

I found Dan Kollias during an internet search for a divorce lawyer. He and his staff were very professional and thorough during my divorce process. Dan is very knowledgeable of divorce law and always made sure I understood the reality of the law and how it would effect me. I liked the fact that Dan, with his years of experience, would tell me what was possible and what was not possible regarding my case and that really impressed me. Dan was very proactive when preparing my case. He asked for information that felt would help my case. To me, that demonstrated his knowledge and experience from his years of representing clients. From a financial viewpoint, I never felt that Dan overcharged me or provided any services that were not warranted.
Dan also has an excellent staff working for him. I could call anytime during business hours and speak with his assistant who was professional and friendly and made sure my questions were answered or forwarded to Dan. If I did have a question that only Dan could answer, he would get back to me with an answer within 24 hours or as soon as he could get the answer.
I highly recommend Dan Kollias if you are in need of a divorce lawyer.

Dan did a wonderful job representing and ultimately winning my case. He was very professional, compassionate and a great communicator. I have struggled for years with my ex changing amount of child support, paying what he felt like or not paying at all. Dan stepped in during a very difficult time and helped me define more precise requirements we would ask the court to hold my ex to. They ended up settling out of court with us because our case was so strong. A big and important victory for my family. I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone needing a divorce or family law attorney and will use him again in the future if needed.

Dan is smart and was very creative in crafting solutions to my legal problem, which centered around my business and my planning for my children to take over the business in the future. He was very patient with me. He always answered my questions. He was very good in explaining the ins and outs of what he was going to do for me. And he always followed through. I would recommend him to anyone needing a thorough, conscientious, and honest lawyer.

Dan knows divorce law, but he had little to no interest in my divorce case. He barely worked on it and I ended up feeling I paid a lot of money only to get it filed. I found an attorney that cared and got my case completed. Was very disappointed.

Dan is very professional and concise in his work ethic. I have had Dan as my attorney for just under a year and I have been completely satisfied with the results he’s provided. He is professional in manner, provided the best logical advice, and has fulfilled everything each and every recommendation. Dan has provided legal counsel in the regard what was in the best interest for myself and my situation. I have heard a few stories which cases weren’t settled promptly. Lastly Dan holds a compassion for his role, in the regard that he provided the defense I needed for my situation. He didn’t offer any outrageous promise and not fulfill. I really could tell he was going to bat for me during my case. I am completely satisfied with the way Dan handled my case and would recommend Dan to anyone that I know in need of a family attorney.

I hired Dan Kollias after my previous lawyer was unable to move my divorce along in an efficient, beneficial manner. Before retaining him, I explained the situation and what I expected. Dan clearly spelled out to me his intended next steps, and how he would approach the situation. After retaining him, Dan immediately followed through on those steps as promised. He did a great job of filtering out the non-important issues and kept his actions working towards finalizing the divorce and obtaining the terms that were in my best interest. As a father being threatened with loss of custody and basic parenting rights, Dan gave me the confidence to stand firm on the things I needed without the worry of losing those rights. Dan was consistently very responsive with both phone calls and emails. He did a great job of summarizing to me where everything stood at every phase of the process. Dan is very knowledgable, and made it a priority to make sure I understood things clearly. I would absolutely recommend him as a divorce lawyer.

Mr. Kollias was very helpful with my case. He genuinely cared about my children and their well being. He fought for what was right for my children. I felt safe through the whole process knowing that he would do everything possible to help my family. He was always available whenever I wanted/needed information and went out of his way to get me resources. I would highly recommend Daniel Kollias to anyone searching for an attorney as well as use him again if ever needed.
