Great Lawyer!!
Angie was very quick to answer any questions I had. Court cases can be stressful especially custody cases so it was since having someone help you feel calm. She was always one step ahead!

Responsive and honest
She represented me in my post-divorce case. She was very open, honest and very straight-forward with the facts. She was always responsive and answered all my questions in a very professional way. She fought for what was right and looked out for the best interests of my children, that was always in the forefront. I would definitely continue to recommend her to anyone I know.

Angie is an exceptional and hard working lawyer. She fights for her clients to the bitter end and will do whatever it takes to achieve the best outcome. She handled a traffic ticket for me and I did not have to worry about a thing. It is nice to have her in your corner, she is the most trustworthy attorney I have ever known. Thanks again for all that you do!

Honest and reliable!
I hired Angie for my divorce and custody case in IL. She was so upfront and honest right from the beginning. She was extremely responsive and always answered my calls and emails right away which is so important in an already stressful situation. She fought for my interests and showed empathy while remaining professional. I would definitely recommend her to everyone I know!

Angie is outstanding!
Angie is outstanding! Very sharp, a fighter and she truly cares. She never let me give up even when I wanted to. She continued to fight to protect me. She always was making sure we were making the right decisions. She was responsive to my emails or phone calls. I was kept up on everything. I never had to wonder what was going on. She is definitely someone you would want on your side to help you through the legal system. I would highly recommend her.

I felt that Angela was the right choice from Day1!
Angela and I had a couple of cases together for an Order of Protection, OP extensions, and my Divorce/Custody arrangement. We worked together for awhile due to my abusive ex-husband's criminal cases prolonging my effort to get a plenary Order of Protection and his attorney(s) not allowing him to go to court for divorce due to said cases. Angela stuck by my side through everything and fought the good fight to get me the outcome I was praying for - safety for my children and myself. She is a strong attorney and is not bullied by "big name" attorneys either. She stands her ground and is among the top attorneys in her field. We had a great collaboration during our time together. I would highly recommend Ms. Aliota for your needs.

If you are looking for a empathic/compassionate and level-headed professional, it's Angela
My case was a very difficult case with a lot of twists and turns. Angela was with me step by step helping to objectively consult at every turn. She was empathic and compassionate, but yet level-headed and professional. All of her advice and guidance was spot on and has helped position me in the best possible way during this awful life-change.

Not the best experience - she wasn't a good fit for me
I had a hard time with Angie getting her to understand what the most important things were to me and felt many times she wasn't really give me much legal advice. Had a hard time on some occasions getting timely responses (she was gone for a long weekend or gone for a week here and there and those happened to be when I was wanting information or waiting for something to happen. She didn't seem to be able to remember my case details - putting information about a car payment that I didn't have, figures were wrong for support, etc. I found errors in a lot of things - such as the payments for my support were calculated wrong by the opposing attorney and I had to point that out to my lawyer, kids were listed wrong, details about debts were wrong. She seemed very on top of billing - but not so on top of my case. Every month I got her bill very timely (wish she was more timely with her responses to me and my calls and emails.) She was out of the office for a week or days here and there so I never felt she was available to me. Close to the end, I wasn't sure I wanted to settle my case as it had been negotiated - she told me she would drop me as a client if I decided to not take the agreement that had been negotiated as I "didn't seem to want to follow her advice and as such she wouldn't be the right lawyer to keep representing me". I would ask her in emails very specific questions, and she would not answer certain ones, and I would have to ask over and over - sometimes I just needed her to tell me when she would know something if she didn't know it at that moment but she would skip over the question. She wasn't good about explaining things - always seems to be in a hurry to get off the phone - most of our contact was through email. I felt trapped as at the end, didn't feel she cared about my case, but too close to the end to try to start with another attorney. She couldn't tell me anything about whether I should sign the quitclaim deed before I received the money for the buyout of my house. My total legal fees seems very high for the amount of work she actually did on my particular case, and I felt I did so much in explaining things, giving her everything she needed for things she could just cut and paste to make it simple for her paperwork, and having to point out errors in how things were stated in the drafts of the marriage settlement agreement a few times to get it correct. I needed more information and always felt I was researching things on my own and talking to a friend who was a family law attorney more than her when I didn't understand what she was telling me. She was very no nonsense, talked extremely fast (sometimes it made it hard for me to gather my thought to be able to remember what my question was). She may be a good fit for others, but she always made me feel as if I was asking too many questions.
