About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.


My story begins with the meeting of a  plumber and  a   secretary at a doctor's office -- my father and mother.  All they ever wanted me to do was to become a Lawyer.  So, here I am.  I was born to Hugh and Vernell Wyeth on April 27, 1959 at the old Copley Hospital in Aurora, Illinois. 


After attending West Aurora High School (Classs of 1977), and the University of Illinois (Class of 1981 -- Accounting), I moved back to my parent's home and commuted via the Burlington Northern to the John Marshall Law School in Chicago.  I also passed the CPA Exam during my second year of Law School -- that was busy fall.  My course selection was heavy on estate planning an business courses with my intention -- from the very beginning, 33 years ago -- of counseling people about their estates and businesses. 


I still do today. 


One of the biggest changes that I have found is the ability to counsel people "at a distance" because of the internet.  I enjoy using email and the web to be available to clients regardless of where they live in Illinois.

Outstanding, client focused legal professional
Mr. Wyeth possesses a broad range of legal expertise and a skill set that navigated my family and I through a sensitive situation as we transitioned a parent to an assisted living home. Among the legal matters that needed to be addressed were the need for a power of attorney document, the establishment of a certain type of trust, as well as the sale of a primary residence. After evaluating all of the dynamics associated with our situation, Mr. Wyeth was exceptionally thorough in his recommendations which put our minds at ease. Mr. Wyeth provided step by step guidance and assistance during every phase. As a result, our family and future is secure.

I have worked with John for the last 4 years on my fathers trusts. He has always been extremely helpful and able to answer my questions. I felt John took a personal interst in helping me provide what was best for my father so he could be adequately cared for. John was prompt in answering corespondence and I did not feel hesitant to ask questions.

We had a great experience with John buying and selling a home simultaneously. He was very easy to work with and made the process smooth. I would highly recommend John and use his services again in the future Thanks John!

Excellent service and professional.
The way that John conducted the selling process was very professional. He was answering questions sometimes before I asked them ! John and his staff made it a painless transfer and close of contracts and was able to fulfill our expectations of what a Profesional lawer should be. Excellent work John, highly recommended!

Beyond Excellent Service
My wife and I had the advantage of being in an audience in which John was one of the presenters discussing Wills and Trusts. We were both impressed with his expertise and demeanor during the presentation. I had contacted several other persons in the financial areas of investments and wealth protection. Among the highest recommendations was John Wyeth's name. We contacted and interviewed several other attorneys, after which we decided to utilize John. From start to completion and beyond John proved to be the right choice. He gave us ALL of the necessary information during our initial consultation to prepare and present in our follow-up session. While my wife and I had lists of many questions, John did not hesitate to clearly answer each and every one of them until we totally understood what we were endeavoring to accomplish. His response was always timely and his answers were clear and concise. He did not speak in Legalese to us! I have had to contact John during the past couple of months for advice after he was finished with our Trust Package, and he again demonstrated fantastic professionalism. I've been in business for many years prior to my retirement; and have dealt with many attorneys. None possessed the personality or sense of humor that John displayed during what for us, was an emotional and trying time!.

Highly Recommend
John recently handled our home buying transaction and we could not have been more pleased! As first time homebuyers purchasing a home in another state, John took the time to address all of our questions with patience and understanding. He is knowledgable, professional and very easy to work with. He made sure the closing process was as smooth as possible and provided excellecnt guidance through the whole transaction. It truly was a wonderful experience to work with John, my husband and I highly recommend his services!

A Caring Man of Integrity
I highly recommend John Wyeth for your Trust establishment needs. John is a friendly, trustworthy, professional, prompt and extremely accommodating attorney. He met with my elderly mother and me at our convenience within a small window of time during the holiday season. I live 2000 miles from my mother and our availability was limited as I was visiting for a short period. He explained the document and procedure in an easy to understand manner which created a sense of peace for my very reluctant mother. He answered each and every question to our satisfaction with patience, understanding, and genuine concern. The document was completed and returned to my mother in a very short period of time. As I completed the funding of the trust from across the country, John promptly responded to my questions and concerns via email within a very short period of time regardless of the time or day of the week. He is very approachable and no question or concern is too small. He truly values his clients. I highly recommend John Wyeth for your trust needs as well as his references to other attorneys to meet your particular needs. His genuine offer to provide ongoing support is very reassuring and my mother and I both feel confident in his guidance and professionalism.
