Best of the best!!
I cannot speak highly enough of the exceptional legal services provided by Rina . From the outset, her professionalism, dedication, and compassion were evident, providing clear explanations and realistic expectations throughout my case. Her expertise and genuine care for her clients made me feel heard, supported, and empowered throughout the entire legal process. Thanks to her advocacy, I was able to focus on other things without any stress, ultimately achieving a resolution that exceeded my expectations. If you're in need of legal representation for any case Rina is the best at what she does!

Invaluable
I hired Rina after a hospital system falsely accused my spouse and me of child abuse. Rina helped guide me through the entire process with DCFS and law enforcement. She’s knowledgeable, personable, responsive, and so easy to work with. Her legal expertise and support navigating the complex system was invaluable, and our case was unfounded and resolved thanks to her professional legal help.

She’s amazing!
Hired her for a DCFS case that i was wrongly accused for in the first place. I had tried contacting other attorneys but they were all saying we would have to go to the hearing in order to sort the stuff out but Pierina had given me the option to try to get it voluntarily dismissed. She said that she believed there was a good chance it would get dismissed. Well I was nervous but went with it and hired her and am so glad I did! Today she gave me the news of them voluntarily dismissing the case!! THANK YOU SO MUCH PIERINA. You’re so amazing!!

Confident, smart and kind
Rina represented me in a child endangerment case and DCFS investigation. She took the time to explain all my options, potential scenarios and the court process. She answered every question I had. Her previous experience as an assistant state’s attorney and the relationships she cultivated there were a great asset. She is patient and real, and offered me the emotional support I needed throughout. I recommend her as an attorney and as a person. Hire her to help you when you need it. She is worth it. Thank you, Rina, for everything.

Best Attorney experience hands down
I could not be happier with hiring attorney Ms. PIERINA (Rina) INFELISE to represent me! I recently hired Attorney Ms. Pierina Infelise to handle my interests in a domestic situation . While my case was serious enough to hire an attorney PIERINA aka Rina was the best move I could have made. She was referred to me by a well known colleague. Who thought its best to let a professional handled everything, and nothing was missed on my case. From explaining everything to following up with emails and phone calls. I could not be happier with the decision to have Rina represent me! She made the entire process go smoothly and kept me informed every step of the way. She was extremely flexible with my time schedule and was happy to correspond strictly via email/phone as in-person meetings would be hard for me to accommodate. Rina handled everything with minimal disruption and all that was required of me was to show up in court on an agreed-upon date. She briefed me on what to expect, what to say, and even went above to let me know what my next steps are after the court phase. Beyond being a highly skilled and extremely knowledgable lawyer, Rina exhibits rare vesting in her clients that put you at ease about knowing that your case will be handled fully, professionally, and right the first time. Thank you Rina , for all your hard work, for your flexibility in working with my schedule, for handling my case with such expertise, and most importantly, for making the entire process easy! Sincerely A. Mack

Great defense lawyer
Rina represented me in a domestic violence case where I was offered a year in jail for something I didn't do, she was able to prove to the judge of all the false accusations against me she's very reliable and definitely someone to keep in you're corner!

False DCFS Accusations
I was very fortunate to get introduced to and work with Pierina (Rina). In dealing with a DCFS investigation involving our disabled child, it was very comforting to work with a lawyer that was both compassionate to me (a father who loves his daughter) AND forceful advocate the truth... while preparing for all possible scenarios. She was available to provide emotional support when needed (an important part of the process), and proactively manage conversations with all parties. I both highly recommend Rina, and will continue to leverage her services for additional legal needs.

Highly Recommend
Pierina is great, professional, and fights for her client. Rina handled my case in a timely and professional manner. Even during certain restrictions due to COVID-19, Rina was clear on communication and was easy to contact. I highly recommend her, especially if you are dealing with a DCFS case. She takes the time to understand you as a person and your story.

Rina Infelise Delivers
Late last winter, in pursuit of legal representation regarding a DCFS matter, I contacted Rina, who provided keen insight into the peculiar nature of DFCS law (as opposed to criminal or civil law), at the same time that she patiently and sympathetically ascertained the facts in the case. Several months -- and one global pandemic -- later, I have received the legal decision sought, notwithstanding virtual meetings, uncomfortable masks, and aggressive lawyering on the other side. Rina did something else that was novel: she persuaded me to let her do all of the talking! In her preliminary review and analysis of the case, she did a fabulous job of discovering the several failings of the DCFS investigator, whose negligence she subsequently exposed during questioning in the hearing. It would be putting it mildly to say that I am pleased that I picked up the phone and called Rina -- even after another attorney informed me that DCFS cases are not worth his time and effort, as DCFS is not required to prove findings "beyond a shadow of a doubt " Rina has thus earned my enthusiastic and unequivocal endorsement. For any legal matter involving family law -- and especially in cases brought by DCFS -- she is the person to retain. Thanks, again, Rina.

Simply The Best!!!
When I called Rina, I was given her number from my divorce attorney to handle a case that was wrongfully thrown at me through a state agency. I was beyond scared at the false accusations made towards me and felt like I had no clue how to fight them, especially when their investigator neglected at her job and caused problems in my families life that no one would ever wish on their worst enemy. Rina has been such a godsend to me and my children. Rina was not only able to cut through the troublesome report made at me, but was able to do so quickly and with a real compassion for how we were wronged. Rina not only gave me and my kids the best representation available, she also made sure that we were treated with respect and dignity in what others might of made an assumption on. Thank you so so much Rina for saving my life and my future, I could never of done this without you by my side. I can honestly say that I feel like a new friendship was made with the handling of my case.

Best traffic lawyer
I was looking for a lawyer for my daughter who received a driving on a suspended. I googled lawyers in Dupage county and tons popped up. I began calling law firm after another almost all the attorneys were rude of not helpful at all until I called Rina she was so kind and helpful and had a flat rate that I could afford. When my daughters court dates arrived Rina was there early and handled the case with percision and professionalism with a better result than I thought would have been possible without her. Rina was an equivalent to a blessing from God himself.

No B.S. attorney that will fight for you!
I had a great experience with this lawyer. She is down to earth from the 1st phone call until the end, no B.S., she tells it like it is and will be there to fight for you. They have multiple office so she is very easy to meet with. She is very knowledgeable and will give you all of the options and help you find what is the best for you and your situation. I am very thankful to have found her. She stood by me, keeping me calm and informed and fought until the end. Definitely someone you would want by your side when fighting your case.

Saved my life
Rina came in at what I thought was the worst thing that's ever happened to me. She wasn't just a lawyer but a wealth of knowledge and support. She not only saved my case, she helped me understand everything that was happening and would happen. Always was there if I had a question or needed something. I would absolutely encourage anyone needing a lawyer of her expertise to hire her!
