Anita is an outstanding attorney who helped me through an incredibly difficult time in my life. She is extremely knowledgable and resourceful in her field. She always responded to my questions and concerns immediately by text, phone or email. She helped educate me on the divorce process and made me feel like I was a priority.

When you are expecting the best!!!
My experience working with Anita Ventrelli was outstanding. I have worked with other attorneys in the past, and my experience was not good. I have never come across a more caring individual who takes your case as serious as she does. Every question or concern I had was immediately addressed. Emails and phone calls were responded to with care and great concern. Extremely skilled and knowledgable in her field. I would rate her as one of the best attorneys in Chicago. I have had nothing but a wonderful experience with her, during one of the most stressful times in my life. You will not be disappointed in choosing her to represent you! When you are looking for the best, and want the best result.... Hire Anita Ventrelli. I am forever grateful to her and her firm for their phenomenal professionalism.
