After interviewing 20+ attorneys in Chicago area. I sat down with Joe twice before i hired him as my attorney. He is calm, has a sharp focus and discipline allowed me to succeed on the case. His expenses were reasonable. We setup where we wanted to be by the end of the case and worked diligently on achieving that. I would recommend Joe to anyone as he is truly a great attorney for family law.

I knew from my initial meeting with Joe that he was the attorney I wanted to handle my case.
He always kept me updated on my divorce process through email or phone calls and if I called him he called back very quickly.
My divorce was pretty simple and when a situation arose that could of prevented it from getting finalized Joe did not back down and went he extra step to get me divorced.
The day of court I was a nervous wreck and his calm, caring demeanor eased my anxiety and I knew I was in good hands with a Awesome attorney.
I will continue to recommend him to anyone asking for a referral for a divorce lawyer.
He is honestly the BEST!

I was 2 weeks away from PreTrial and needed a new attorney because previous attorneys were too costly. Attorney Joe O''Brien saved my life! I was in for the fight of my life. I was married for 2.4 years to a man who misrepresented himself to me. He lied about his education, wealthy, and everything in between. In essence he was a con-artist who tried to take advantage of new amendments to The Illinois Family Law and gain control of my businesses. Atty. Joe O'Brien did not let that happen. He tore my ex-husband up on that stand. He exposed his motives and fraudulent practices. Atty Joe O'Brien is young Matlock. He is professional, prepared, and precise. He thinks quick on his feet and negotiates well. In the end I received sole possession on marital residence, businesses, land and so much more. I highly recommend Attorney Joe O'Brien!!!!

Joe was always available to take my call, very caring. He always replied either by email or text, or phone calls.

Recommend Joe highly, he is very attentive, keeps in touch via texts/email/phone calls, very prompt in his response, friendly and caring. And when its time he delivers. My case was international as my spouse was out of country. He is sharp and moved my case very fast. Divorce is never easy emotionally, but Joe made it smooth. I couldn't have imagined a better execution.
I got in touch with Joe reading his reviews, one wouldn't get so many just like that, he has earned each one of those.

A friend recommended Mr. O'Brien to handle my divorce. It turned out to be the best attorney recommendation I've ever received. He was always quick to respond to any of my questions or concerns via text, email or cell. His office team was extremely supportive and helped me understand the administrative process. O'Brien consistently worked my case to ensure that my needs and concerns were exceedingly met. He made the process smooth and easy and now I'm truly loving life! If I could do one thing different when looking for an attorney - I would have skipped the shopping around and just hired him from the start. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing resolution on divorce or separation!

I have a child custody case. Mr. O'Brien took the facts, created a pleading, got a GAL to look at the facts, and stayed patient throughout the process.
Joe O'Brien is the best kind of attorney -- patient, thorough, supportive in just the right amount of nice to me as the client, but not nice to the opposing party. He made it clear he is not afraid of litigation and that he is the better litigator. Mr. O'Brien kept me informed throughout the process by email, text, and phone calls. I never felt that I could not reach him easily or that I was on my own. Even when he was busy helping another client, he did not forget that this motion represented a change for my children 7 years in the making. His supportive manner, as well as that of his associates and office staff, made all the difference in the world.

I recently hired Mr Joe for an issue regarding moving my minor daughter out of state. He handled my case very well. My divorce just got finalized only few months back and I had a different attorney. I was not pleased with the quality of service, lack of communication and commitment by my previous attorney as she always had her assistant represent me and never stepped foot in the court for my case which went on for over 1 year. I had mentioned the issue to Joe and he assured me that it will never happen if I hired him. I am very happy to share that he worked on my case and was very quick to answer any questions I had. He is very professional and very easy to talk to. The staff in the office is very helpful. I would highly recommend to hire him.

In the midst of a personal crisis like divorce, you need an attorney who has your back, a lawyer who will go to bat for you armed with an exceptional knowledge of Illinois divorce law. Joe O'Brien was that lawyer for me. Joe brought an outstanding legal acumen backed by exceptional research, a compassionate heart, and a straightforward no-nonsense approach to getting the job done as expediently as possible, particularly during the contentious moments of my divorce. I found Joe to be incredibly responsive and wise in his counsel every step of the way. He is honorable, down to earth, well-reasoned, and has outstanding intuition to help you navigate through the murky and unpredictable ebbs and flows of divorce. I highly recommend Joe O'Brien and his team at Opal O'Brien.

Joe was amazing! I was in a a situation where my now ex husband did NOT want to get divorced so his goal was to take everything and make my life miserable. Joe did an incredible job to protect my best interests. Getting the divorced finalized was his priority, unlike many other attorneys who just want to Bill you for a million hours to get paid. Thank you for everything Joe!
