Review Henry Kass
  • Excellent Representation

    Posted by Janine

    I have known Henry for years and recently decided to retain his legal services. I trust Henry and have never had such a positive experience working with an attorney. I had spoken to Henry on multiple occasions over the span of several years regarding child visitation and support issues. He would provide me with quick insight and suggestions that were immediately effective, but never charged me. Problems compounded over the years that resulted in my desire to take legal action. Henry has always been very thorough, insightful, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. As a single parent, he was incredibly generous to provide me with free advice, before I decided to retain him for services. Throughout the entire ordeal, he was incredibly careful with any actions knowing what a struggle it would be for me to pay for services. I worked closely with Henry as well as his associate over the span of several weeks and I was very impressed with the prompt response times and the clarity in understanding their recommendations to my questions. My family’s needs were perfectly articulated into court documents and I am extremely satisfied with the service & results when considering the cost. I would definitely hire Henry again for future legal services and recommend him without hesitation.

    I hired Henry for a simple post decree child support issue. Henry was extremely knowledgeable, however, so much money was wasted contacting opposing counsel needlessly and appearing in court with no results. I wished he would have been more strategic and careful with the time spent on this case. The end result was good, however, it was hardly worth it once I added up the thousands of dollars spent on needless communications.

    Henry Donald Kass’s response: “I take my client’s comments and confidentiality very seriously. In this review my client has used the name “Catherine.” My assumption is that she does not wish to disclose her identity and, therefore, I will respect her wishes by using this name. Catherine first became a client of mine approximately eight years ago when I was employed with a different firm. When she lost someone very close to her during her case, it had a profound impact. I attended the funeral and afterword always considered her to be a very special client. Over the course of the years, I relocated to MKFM Law. When Catherine contacted me at my new firm in need of advice, I did not charge her. Eventually, however, her ex-husband sued her in court for what he considered to be an overpayment of his child support obligation. As a result, Catherine again came to me for representation. Catherine’s post-decree situation was both rare and complicated. In addition to the monthly amounts that Catherine’s ex-husband paid for child support, the federal government also paid to Catherine, on behalf of her ex-husband, a large sum of money for what was arguably the same support obligation. Thus, the matter involved both federal and state law. At the time that Catherine received these federal funds, her ex-husband was current on his child support payments. While Catherine felt very strongly that she was entitled to both amounts, her ex-husband contended that she had received double the amount of the court-ordered child support. On a personal level, I sympathized with Catherine. Although her ex-husband always paid the court-ordered child support, he was almost certainly not paying what he should have been under the law. He was always either self-employed or unemployed in an effort to disguise his true income and dissuade her from returning to court. On a legal level, things were more complicated. Catherine had never sought to increase her ex-husband’s child support amount. Moreover, her ex-husband had, in fact, paid the monthly amounts that had been originally ordered by the Judge. Thus, all personal feelings of fairness aside, the issue was limited to whether Catherine was entitled to keep both amounts of money. Unfortunately, her ex-husband had a very real and viable claim for reimbursement. Be that as it may, Catherine was very headstrong in her position that she should be able to keep both amounts. To complicate matters, Catherine’s ex-husband was not initially represented by an attorney. This resulted in a court date where little was accomplished. Eventually, he retained legal counsel. However, on at least two other occasions either her ex-husband or his attorney failed to appear for court. This also resulted in unnecessary delay. Notwithstanding the delays, I was successful in securing both sums of money for Catherine without the need for a trial. As she stated, however, the actions of her ex-husband and his attorney increased the cost of the litigation. To further complicate matters, Catherine’s second husband simultaneously sued her for a divorce. This added more stress to her situation as well as her need for more frequent reassurance and advice. I was always certain to take Catherine’s calls at night and on the weekends. I am appreciative of Catherine’s compliment and her faith in my legal knowledge. I also agree with her that she received an optimal outcome. Moreover, I empathize with her regarding the delays caused by her ex-husband and his attorney. I cannot accept responsibility, however, for their actions. I also cannot agree that she was overcharged. To the contrary, having been such a special client, I lessened the cost of her litigation at my own expense by giving her periodic “no charges” for my services. In total, I provided to her over $1,000.00 in free legal services over the course of her case. I sincerely wish Catherine the best and I will continue to be here for her should she need me.”

    My daughter, who has never been in trouble, found herself in potentially serious trouble with significant consequences that would carry with them strong negative impact. I am no helicopter parent but in this case we did not believe justice was being served so we recognized the need for an attorney.
    I talked to around ten lawyers, and Henry was the one that stood out. He was confident but did not talk down, he listened, and he offered advice. Based on that we hired him.
    The experience was exceptional. It was evident that he has a deep understanding of the system, he is respected by the people within the system (including the prosecutors he goes up against), and he knows what is black & white and what is grey. The way he navigated the grey area was masterful. He managed the process and made the scary consequences go away. I hope I never have to but I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

We were pleased with the outcome of our case and highly recommend Henry to anyone looking for an honest and amazing attorney!

  • Order of Protection Case - Thank you Henry!

    My family was involved as witnesses in a DuPage County Order of Protection case for our friend's family. Throughout the entire process, I thought Henry was extremely professional, friendly, skilled, and compassionate with all the people involved with the case. This is especially true with our daughter, who is a minor. Having to put a minor through testifying in a case is something no parent wishes their child to go through. Henry took care of her throughout the entire process and most importantly, in the court room. Henry, our sincere thanks and gratitude for getting us through these horrible circumstances.

    I went through a very difficult divorce that lasted two years, I don't know how I would have gotten through it without Henry. He is very knowledgeable about divorce and family law and led me in the right direction concerning every decision. He won all our motions in court and issues outside of court and won a very favorable outcome for me. My ex-husband told a friend he wished he would have gotten Henry for himself.

    I think Henry's best assets are he's ethical, trustworthy, caring, and a good communicator. He explained complex legal and financial issues in clear ways that I could clearly understand. He's very good at returning phone calls and emails in a timely manner and I never felt out of touch with him.

    I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to help me through this difficult time and I would highly recommend him.

    I was referred to Henry through a close friend who is also an attorney. I read the great reviews that Henry has and decided that I wanted to have him represent me in my case. From the moment I first met with Henry I knew that I had made the right decision. You will not find a more eloquent, knowledgeable, and gifted counselor. Not only does Henry understand the letter of the law but he also understands the spirit of the law. He has a true talent to guide, calm, lead, educate, instruct, and advise. He exuded all these qualities and more during the course of my case. I trust this man. He truly cares about his clients and his passion for justice was always clearly evident. He wanted to do all he could to ensure that I received a full and fair outcome under the law. My case was settled without a conviction and very favorably on all other terms. Henry made the case for me not only under the law but as a person and I personally owe him a debt of gratitude. I could not have made a better choice for my attorney and I highly recommend his services.
