Experience, Quality, Affordable

I have been licensed to practice law for 30 years. After graduating from IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law in 1989, I worked with Legal Assistance Foundation of Chicago handling Landlord/tenant, Eviction, Disability Appeals, and other civil matters. After being licensed in 1990 I joined the Law Office of the Cook County Public Defender where I worked throughout varies divisions including Child Protection, Juvenile Justice, Paternity, Misdemeanor, Traffic and Felony over my 16 year career in the office.

I am the proud mother of 3 amazing young men, 26, 24 and 22. I’ve been a DCFS Foster Parent and a DCFS adoptive parent. I am a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., Zeta Xi Sigma Alumnae Chapter, an International Sorority and member of the Divine Nine.

I have always been active in public interest. In high school I was able to gather petitions and get a stop sign placed between two main thorough fares where students crossed over getting to class from one building to the other. The school and CPS hadn’t gotten it done. I did. I was the First Black/African-American President of the Student Bar Association at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law in 100 years of History. I was Awarded the Alumni Award from the Law School Alumni association upon graduation. Once active in the Legal Community as a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, I was Awarded the Young Lawyer of the Year by the Illinois State Bar Association. Fast forward to 2008, as the Volunteer Field Organizer we ran the Obama campaign office in the South Suburbs from my Law Office. To serving 8 years on the School District 161 School Board.

My life and career has been to protect and represent the interest of all. I have always done so in my legal career representing my clients, and I will continue to do so. Its been said that I can be a Lamb or a Lion. Whatever is necessary for you.

Lawyer with a big heart
If I could give Ms Boyd Odom 100 stars I would. Ms Boyd Odom is not just a lawyer. She is a lawyer with a big heart. She will tell you upfront unlike other lawyers who will just milk their clients for money. The first time I spoke with her over the phone I could feel that she will do her best to win my case againts my ex. I had a nasty case with my ex where he tried taking my kids away and made me look like a bad mother. I trusted Ms Boyd Odom and it was the best thing I ever did. It was a complicated case and she was able to nail it on the spot. I couldn’t thank her enough for everything she did to me. I highly recommend her. She is fair in charging her clients as well. Not as costly as other lawyers. Thank you Ms Boyd Odom. May God bless your good heart.

Highly recommended. She was able to assist me on short notice. I felt more comfortable with her going over the paperwork and explaining in detail what I needed to know.

Well rounded Lawyer
I have had the pleasure of working with Attorney Odom for over 20 years she is a well rounded in the area of criminal law and family law having a back ground as a defense attorney in Cook County. Most of my experience with Attorney Odom has come in the from of being a real estate attorney for my clients. She is always willing to go the extra mile to help me get my deals closed. She is also a notary which has come in handy for my client on many occasions.
