Alex, you are a true professional and a gentleman, and he knows more about trying a jury trial case in the State of Illinois than I will every know, so I appreciate your knowledge and expertise."
  • A client in a dispute of $550,000 in estate assets wrote: “Alexander Loftus is an exceptional attorney. He recently represented me on a complex trust litigation matter and throughout, he was extremely thorough and insightful regarding all aspects of my case that would not have been resolved as quickly and effectively had it not been for Alexander's diligence and outstanding communication skills.”
  • A breach of contract client whose case settled favorably despite facing a significant counterclaim wrote: “Alexander is a very detailed, highly educated attorney… he really takes the time to make sure everything is done correctly and within the law.

A Lawyer who "fights for good"
If the other party is represented by Loftus & Eisenberg - you're in trouble! When I found myself wrongfully locked out of my multimillion dollar companies by the senior share holders, I thought all was lost! Alex showed me just what a great lawyer who "fights for good" can and will do. If you want thoughtful legal representation from a meticulous, sharp shooting, gentle giant, who will not just treat you like a friend, but fight for you like family - then Alex Loftus is your man! After swiftly but thoroughly assessing my case's details he championed my cause on its self evident merits. Under a modest contingency fee agreement, Alex and his firm fought for me, for over 3 years, and never once took a shortcut to serve anything but my best interests. Moreover, they delivered better results than I could have hoped for. I highly recommend Loftus & Eisenberg. I will always be grateful for Alex and what he accomplished for me and my family!

Alex Loftus saved our family. We retained Alex to resolve/ litigate a complicated financial matter. Alex successfully resolved/settled the case with his wisdom and insight of a successful litigator. Alex is the best litigator I’ve retained in 35 years of private equity.

Never met a lawyer like Alex! Aces!
Alex is representing myself and my Venture Capital firm as part of litigation against former partners for multiple violations of intellectual property and fiduciary duties. I contacted Alex after reviewing his firm's website and was impressed by his extensive experience in business litigation, so I decided that he was the right attorney for me and my firm. Alex is always there to support me and my case, he is attentive and responsive to every inquiry I have, and perform his responsibilities diligently. If you are looking for an attorney that will go the extra mile, then I highly recommend Alex Loftus and his firm as I would not hesitate to work with him again.

Extremely informative!
Attorney Loftus answered my very first call and gave me extremely helpful information about my case and offered to assist in correcting mistakes made by my previous attorney. He seemed very genuine after dealing with unethical attorneys.

I had a faulty case, but....
Alex took the time needed to explain to me why my case/suit wasn't feasible. But in the time prior, he answered all of my questions, responded to emails quickly, was thorough, and was patient with me. Most importantly, he was compassionate. And that's hard to come by sometimes in these situations. I would recommend him to my best friend, my family - anyone. Thank you Alex, for your help. It was a pleasure working with you. --A. M.

Got results quickly during a stressful time
I arrived home from the hospital after giving birth to a call from my realtor explaining the buyers from my home were intending to back out (I live in the Peoria/Central Illinois area). The closing date was a week and a half away, and much earlier than I would have liked, at the request of the buyer. I contacted Alexander Loftus. He responded to me promptly, explained the issue in plain terms, assured me the law was on my side and got to work. He had contacted the buyers' lawyer within hours of talking to me. He stayed in contact with me about how my issue was progressing. Mr. Loftus was aggressive and professional. I knew he was watching out for my best interests which allowed me to relax and enjoy my new baby. The issue was resolved in under a week, the buyers reconsidered and decided to go through with the sale on the original closing date! Cannot say enough good things about Mr. Loftus and his work.

Unpaid Wage And Commission Claim
Alex is a very aggressive and hardworking attorney. Alex settled my Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act case for double the amount my prior attorney asked for when the lawsuit was originally filed. I highly recommend Alex Loftus for any unpaid wage or commission claims.

Best experience I ever had with an attorney
I was desperately looking for a confident lawyer. I have met countless lawyers when I had issue with immigration. I know how hard it is to find a good lawyer. This time, I needed someone for litigation and I found out about Alex through avvo. He responded to my e-mail while he was on vacation. I knew he would be a great person to work with based on his communication skill and experience in this field. Fortunately, I didn't need to start the lawsuit, but I would definitely choose Alex to represent me. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone who needs a great litigator.

BY FAR THE BEST ATTORNEY I HAVE EVER HIRED OR WORKED WITH!!!
Mr. Alexander N. Loftus is absolutely by far and without any question the best attorney I have ever hired or worked with. In fact I almost wasn't even going to hire an attorney to help me with my recent accident due to previous poor experiences I have had from what I would consider to be the "stereo-typical" poor performance lawyers". Alex is quite the opposite of this!!! He is extremely personable, competent, and a most excellent listener and thinker. He and his law office are extremely accessible as well as lightening-fast at returning any e-mails or phone calls. Words cannot even express how satisfied I am with THIS lawyer!!! The best thing you could do for yourself or you loved ones is call him to discuss your accident or injury like I did. There was no consultation fee, and because I picked up the phone I now find myself with an excellent settlement which wouldn't have been possible or even thought of without Mr. Loftus's representation. Thanks a million Alex and Fichera & Miller P.C.!

A kind and hardworking attorney!
After almost three years, my husband and I moved on to another attorney hoping to get our case resolved. That attorney is Alex Loftus Hattimer. He is FANTASTIC! Alex kept us up-to-date on our case, he always returned our phone calls/emails, and had our best interest at heart. It took him less than six months to do what our previous attorney couldn't in over two years. Our case is at the end stages all thanks to Alex. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing legal representation.

Compassionate,bright, and professional
I was referred to Alex during a very difficult and sensitive time. He was at all times professional with a unique ability to be empathetic. He is personable, responsive, and focused. At no time did I doubt I was in good legal counsel. Alex kept me informed and returned calls promptly. I would recommend Alex to anyone especially to family and friends which in itself, speaks volumes! Fichera & Miller have in their employ a passionate, compassionate,and knowledgeable attorney in Alex Hattimer.. Alex is a wonderful person as well as an outstanding attorney who strives for excellence at all times. I highly recommend Alex.

"To whoever is reading this you have the full endorsement of a current client of this wonderful man and Attorney."
To whom it may concern, Before I met Attorney Hattimer, I had been stuck with an attorney who had I known from church to help me with a suit concerning a car accident. That accident will be almost seven years ago next month (from whence I currently writing) and only now; with the help of Attn. Hattimer has it been drawn to a close. This horrible attorney was not an experienced personal injury lawyer, but accepted our case none-the-less. It was a clear-cut incident where a young man in a sports car who was speeding while on a cell phone and not paying attention to my car which was clearly at a stop with its turn signal on in order to cross traffic to get into a plaza when he slammed into my vehicle totaling both of our cars. I sadly can tell you that my back and brain have not recovered from that day. I had never sought out an attorney for such a need. My initial attorney granted us a co. council in order to help him (who was indifferent to the situation and was later fired). I also made the mistakes by asking this prior attorney to ‘help’ me with some other matters, all the while I was ignorant to the unjust charges he would accrue from me. Not long into the case the very doctor who said attorney had sent me to blatantly told me that my case was going down the toilet fast in addition to other people whom had some sort of legal insight. I did not listen to my doctor until years went by and despite all sorts of empty promises and long speeches (that I was charged for to listen to) came to a head. The problem had grown to by that time was: I could not fire him! He had messed up my case so bad that no lawyer I took my sloppy case file to would agree to touch it. …This man was the defense’s greatest asset by far. I had to give the file back to this ‘lawyer’ and by law he had to oblige. For another year or so things got worse and I thought that no relief was in site and decided to look for another lawyer again. This time I came across Attorney Hattimer. He agreed to meet with me and after what I assumed would be around my 20th turn down, Alex accepted the difficult challenge! He was as he has always proven to be: Very kind, down to earth, and sharp as a diamond cutter! To make a long story short, Attorney Hattimer took a bunch of lemons and turned them into a porterhouse with lobster! He was fast acting, persistent, and exceeded my expectations by even helping me settle my prior lawyer’s hash. Attorney Alex Hattimer is nothing short of an answer to my prayers to God! I will recommend this fantastic man to anyone in legal need. I thank God for him constantly and I don’t think that I even do that enough for what Attn. Alex Hattimer was able to do for me as well as my family. He did a lot of very good things for us. Only God can (and will) repay him fully for what he has done and continues to do for my household (I also got bit in the face by a neighbor’s dog). To whoever is reading this you have the full endorsement of a current client of this wonderful man and Attorney. Most sincerely, Matthew [removed by avvo staff]

A Truly a Top Notch Lawyer who is an Associate at the Best of the Best Law Firm; Fichera & Miller P.C.
10.0/10.0 in my book! Mr. Hattimer is an extremely bright, thorough, compassionate and very understanding professional & attorney. It is no mystery to me why Mr. Fichera & Mr. Miller would be so pleased with him as well as his outstanding performance. I'd almost swear that he's had his law licence for 50 years as well...no kidding! Alex has a can do attitude in everything that he does, and it seems that almost nothing no matter how complex is out of his reach for him. I am very thankful and honored to have the opportunity to be represented by him and his great law firm. They are EVERYTHING (and then some) that they say they are on their website to the (T). I highly recommend him for ANY kind of case from simple to complex, from accident to civil rights and much more. He and his firm give you great peace of mind because you know they are fighting and working hard for you while keeping you informed throughout the process.
