I wish i would have known of Peggy from the beginning of my divorce, in short I went through 2 attorneys while going through my divorce and was left with a lot of unresolved issues, I hired my 3rd attorney shortly after the divorce was over to resolve some of these issues ( they did nothing buy charge me money). I hired Peggy in the spring of 2014 and by early August of 2014 the issues were resolved.

My divorce was just finalized 1.5 months ago. The separation from my children was emotionally wrecking. The legal wrangling lasted 2 1/2 yrs. and added mental stress that was a 24 hr. a day battle. Peggy Raddatz specializes in Father's going through divorce. She kept me informed and hopeful, always looking toward the light at the end of the tunnel. She quickly had an Order of Protection against me dismissed as baseless. When the other party went through several attorneys in succession and the case dragged on, Peggy used her considerable skill at negotiation and tactics to bring my case to a favorable conclusion for me.

Peggy is a wonderful lawyer. She is an incredibly intelligent woman who is understanding, kind, forthright, and an expert in her field. Her council during our case was superb. She makes you feel like you are her only client. I would recommend Peggy to anyone. She is definitely in a class by herself. Peggy is professional, reliable, and also has a wonderful staff. She always got back to us in a very timely manner when we had questions along the way. She was very reassuring and always willing to explain various steps of the process. Peggy is extremely organized, prompt, and driven. You will be hard pressed to find another lawyer with her work ethic, determination, experience, and character. Peggy is exceptional.

Peggy was recommended to me by another farther several years ago. As a father of three children a divorce, raised so many concerns, about my children’s, finances, quality of life, etc.
Peggy was passionate about protecting mine and my children’s interests she was always ready to inform me of the risks of any decisions I was making. My divorce was finalized near end of 2003 after three year ordeal; I was impressed with the results she was able to obtain for my children and myself in this matter. Thank you, Peggy!
After several years of calm, my “X” want to contest the agreed upon, college expenses. I knew who to call, Peggy.
Peggy is a top notch attorney - extremely knowledgeable in Illinois Family Law, personable, reliable, and has a wonderful staff. Peggy was very understanding and supportive when dealing with the stress and emotional roller coaster of a divorce, child custody, and financial settlements.
I would strongly recommend Peggy to anyone going through a separation or divorce.

If your working with another lawyer get rid of them and hire Peggy. Peggy is the smartest lawyer who in fact cares about your case and does not spend your money fighting she spends it to win. I was used and wasted thousands on so called lawyers who did not get anything done and wanted more money.
I meet with this real lawyer and with in two hours and armed with her knowledge was able to get further faster and had more done than I did with the other two lawyers combined.
I care about my kids and results matter to me and they should to you. If you dont use Peggy you've already wasted your time and money. Fathers right is what shes all about not the guy on TV.
Peggy wrote the book on it. She is kind, listens, bold and if the other half thinks shes got one up on you and you hire Peggy trust me her and her lawyer will have to go back to the drawing board...
I wish i didnt have to go through this but its a fact of life and if i got Peggy sooner I'd be alot happier earlier than she has made me now.
Hire her if shes got a spot . Peggy is not like any lawyer you've ever meet or will work with.

Peggy Raddatz is a wonderful person to work with. She is patient, knowledgable, and solution-driven while always maintaining honesty during the process. She represents her clients with the utmost respect and dignity. Peggy was able to develop solutions, collaborate with all parties, and help mitigate conflicts that arose during the process. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced attorney. Thanks for your hard work Peggy!

Peggy has handled two divorces for me over the years. The first was a simple one, the second was a four year stressful ordeal. Peggy kept me informed and calm and stressed to be patient, as there is a method to the madness. In the end, it came out how I wanted and she saved me 10's of thousands of dollars. I can't thank her enough. I would, and have recommended her to many people. And for you fathers out there who think you need those specialized, expensive "father's rights" attorneys, think again. She's better than all of them!

Ms. Raddatz is an extraordinary legal talent. She possesses encyclopedic knowledge of matrimonial law as well as superior analytical abilities. What I find especially relevant, however, is that Ms. Raddatz is an attorney who combines her legal talents with compassion for her clients and the community of individuals who submit questions in this forum. These are the qualities you ultimately need in any attorney whose services you retain--legal acumen combined with a commitment to treat you as a human being, not just another legal file or retainer check. In summary, you can rest assured that with Ms. Raddatz in your legal corner, you're in good hands.
