Ms. Breseman has been my lawyer since 2010. She represented me through one of the longest and most difficult divorce and child custody cases that Will County has ever seen. The case took years, and if I had 20,000 characters I could not explain the extent. My ex wife hired five different lawyers over the course of the case. GAL's and psychologists were involved, and it went to full trial three years after filing. First and foremost, Ms. Breseman knows the law. You will see it and the judges recognize this and respect her. She is a fighter. She is not going to play softball. If you hire a meek lawyer you will get flimsy results. She charges fairly and her offices are a block from the Will County Courthouse. You are not going to get charged ridiculous travel fees like all the others like to do. Her consultation is free. She is going to be honest about your case. You may not always like what you hear. I didn't like the odds and potential outcomes she presented at first but I trusted her and I knew myself. Good fathers have an uphill battle in custody cases...like Mt. Everest kind of uphill. Ms. Breseman will fight for you but she will also tell you what you're doing wrong and what you need to change. She is a mediator and she knows that both sides are often flawed. If I told you we've had perfect dealings for 7 years I would be lying. Who can get along perfectly with a lawyer for 7 years? We've had disagreements in the past but there was always respect and we always handled each hurdle as a team. We both lost sleep over the years on this case. We both gave each other stress. Ms. Breseman cares deeply. I think you will see that if you meet her. You have nothing to lose by going in for a free consultation. I have referred other friends to her and they were very satisfied. I recommend Ms. Breseman without any hesitation.

I do not believe in writing anonymous reviews. Kristi was not my attorney, she was my ex-wife's Juliana. I did not appreciate the personal attacks toward me as they were untrue. I think Kristi had the best interest of her client at the forefront. I came home from Iraq and was getting divorce. Kristi said I wasn't a hero and continued to accuse me of hiding money to my ex-wife. Our daughter was present when I purchased a vehicle (used BMW) and explained to her mother that I did not hide the money as Kristi continued to allege. Kristi wanted me to give my ex half the value of that vehicle even though, I bout my ex-wife a new vehicle in 2008 and it was paid off as well as all the debt. I had continued to pay the mortgage and all utilities. I paid for my wife's bachelor degree and she was working for 7 years when we divorced. Kristi felt I did nothing for my ex-wife as we were married when she was 17 and I 21. We had three children and all were adults at the time of our divorce oldest 23, 19, 18. I never hit my wife or anything, I did have the affair in 2005, which was wrong and no excuses. Kristi kept telling my ex-wife how horrible I was. But even when I learned we were getting divorce I did nothing to financially harm my ex-wife. I did not move money until she took have of our savings out. My ex-wife chose to remain home for most of our children's life then as i said, she wanted to go to school which I paid for then she worked hard to excel and find employment. I told by Kristi to treat this as a business, I said what do I get out of it then she said you have three wonderful children, she was correct but so does my ex I said. Financially, I was the only one that had to pay. As I said all the debt was paid off, her school was paid by me, she was given $60K cash, $20K for 5 years no child support as our children were all adults, half my pension and the only thing I asked not to take was my military pension but she took half of that as well. So I have recommended Kristi despite my personal feelings of her dragging my name and tried my reputation through the mud. I have always separated my personal from professional opinions. Use her if you are truly scorn, however my ex-wife are friends to this day, as I have always said to my ex-wife and Kristi and anyone who would listen. I may not have been the best mate, but my goal was to ensure my family had what they needed and as much as they wanted that i could afford. I agreed to give my wife what she received as I wanted her to be happy because my ex-wife truly deserves it.

I hired Kristi to represent me after a smooth talking lawyer I used overcharged me and ended up not being to practice law for a period of time for I'm not sure what reason. Kristi was straightforward with me about my case. She told me what to.exoect, called me back in a timely manner, and was right about everything she said. I have used Kristi for post decree issues regarding my divorce and would highly recommend her. I have friends that have used her as well that are very satisfied with her work for them. You won't regret calling Kristi. She's the best attorney I have ever had.
