Raymond, i don't know where my life would be today with my husband without you. I am forever grateful for what you did with my husbands case. People looking at this review a couple years ago my husband was looking at quite some time in prison for some charges, I called countless attorneys before finally hiring Raymond, i hired him because he was honest with me and my husbands family. He was extremely knowledgeable and had an answer to every question. He also answered all calls even late at night when he was no longer in the office. Even after our case was settled Raymond kept in contact with us to see how we were doing. My husband is a free man today & able to have a normal life because of Raymond. Thank you!

My son unfortunately made a bad business decision which was very serious. He was involved with an attorney that was of the utmost incompetent and unprofessional. I sensed these failures, therefore, studied the various attorneys on AVVO. After hours of analyzing their credentials, I chose Raymond Wigell with confidence and am so very grateful that I did. Raymond met with my son on a holiday and gave his undivided attention. In my humble opinion a professional meeting on a holiday is unheard of. He was so very helpful listening to every detail of the issue, explaining to him the process and what to expect and opened the floor to any possible questions. The meeting was very productive and informative which offered a great sense of relief and resolve. Later that evening still the holiday my son received a call from Raymond offering his support and encouragement. Raymond offers the highest level of support, compassion and professionalism to you which is illustrated in his day to day communication with you. Raymond coupled with Huma Rashid are a fabulous team. They guide you every step of the way during the process. No question is silly or never answered which truly makes you feel at ease. Not only are the above stated attributes an asset, the end result is the absolute gold star. Raymond and Huma worked diligently on my sons mitigation packet and worked closely with my son for his hearings. They dedicated an enormous amount of time to my son and this case which resulted in a positive verdict. My son received probation for his crime . Raymond and Huma blessed our family with the greatest gift possible; our sons freedom. I thank them from the bottom of my heart. If you are facing a situation which is a serious mistake I highly recommend Raymond Wigell as your counsel of choice. I reassure you will be forever grateful!

I was involved in a case of white collar crime. My charges were tax evasion and fraud on a pension plan. Once the Feds visited me I hired a attorney that dug me into a deeper hole and I was devestated. We called Raymond Wigell on New Year's Eve and he answered the call and talked to us about the situation. He met us New Year's day......seriously what attorney would do this?? Raymond did. He took the case on that day and went to work immediately. I was one day away from being charged by the Feds because of my old attorneys lack of ethics and knowledge. Raymond was able to get the Feds to put the brakes on charging me and getting a meeting to work on this case. Through out the entire process I was informed of where the case was at and what our next step was. Never was I kept wondering of what's next? Even when there was no activity I would get a random call or text from Raymond checking on my well being. I titled this compassionate because Raymond and his staff felt my pain and suffering and kept me positive and on track. I've never dealt with professionals like Raymond and Huma that took the time to answer my petty questions and concerns and never shunned me away. They were truly concerned for my well being and my future which was at stake. My sentencing date came and I was looking at 2 counts that each had a 5 year sentence for a maximum. We has a group knew that day that we could not have done anything any different to prepare and be ready for my long awaited outcome. I'm fortunate to say I received 3 years probation and was elated for this. I followed everything Raymond and his staff asked of me. Raymond is so knowledgeable and has so much experience that I never questioned anything. If you follow his lead and listen your outcome hopefully will be as good as mine. I would and will recommend Raymond to anyone. I hope I never have to use him again but I do know I have a friend for life in him. Trust, compassionate, expertise, focused and strength are the best words to describe Raymond's practice. If your in trouble this is the firm for you....trust me as I'm proof of a positive outcome.

I needed unofficial legal information and received it from Mr. Wigell after calling 2 other lawyers who could not help me. I feel Raymond is very knowledgeable from years of experience in the courtroom. He was happy to listen to my questions and advise me based on the information I gave him. He took the time and help with a positive attitude. I highly recommend this lawyer because he is genuine person and kind soul.

Mr. Wigell and Ms. Rashid are the best. We had a family legal emergency on a weekend Eve and they made themselves available and engaged at once to sort out the issue with skill and experience. I have known many lawyers. They are the best and I give them the highest recommendation.

A friend's relative was falsely accused of committing a crime in the Chicago area. My friend and I live in another state. When we needed a Chicago defense attorney to help us make sure my friend's close relative was alright, I recalled meeting Mr. Wigell several years earlier. He was a great person and attorney when I met him and the clear choice when my friend needed help. I called Mr. Wigell after normal business hours and he promptly returned the call. He was pleasant and more than willing to help my friend and his family. Within a very short period of time, the situation was resolved and everyone was safe. After serving as a defense attorney for nearly two decades, I understand how stressful it can be to have a family member accused of a crime. Mr. Wigell understands that too. Not only does he understand, he knows exactly what to do to make the situation better. He receives my highest rating, which is well deserved!

After my being arrested at 1 a.m., my boyfriend immediately got on AVVO to search for a lawyer for me and came across the law offices of Raymond Wigell and called very late at night. Raymond answered despite the time and my bf hired him. James DiQuattro took on my case and I couldn't be happier! Jim always answered any question I had and answered in language I understood and made sure I understood. He may ask "do you have any more questions" 50 (lol) times per conversation but sometimes it takes that many times before I remember I a question I wanted to ask. Jim got my Class X felony dropped and I pled to a Class 2 and he got me very good, beneficial deal. The whole staff there is great. The lady who answers the phone (legal assistant maybe) is just the sweetest. Highly recommend.

Ray is an excellent lawyer!!! He is very professional, intelligent, and compassionate individual. My uncle hired Ray as his lawyer during his criminal investigation. I met Ray when I went to court to offer support to my uncle. There was something about Ray that made us all feel calm and collected during this stressful time in our lives. He was always positive and willing to listen to our needs. He had great communication skills and was really knowledgeable about the justice system. At the end of the day, Ray was able to free my uncle of any wrong doing and our family is blessed to have had him on our side during that difficult moment.
