Efficient, Effective and Caring
It was a pleasure working with Brad during this challenging time in my life, showing genuine care while providing excellent professional guidance. Brad worked for my best interests without being combative with opposing counsel, and was responsive to me needs through the process.

A Real Gem
Brad has been my attorney for over two years now. He represented me at the end of a very vicious divorce case, and then again a year later for a two-year custody battle with my ex. He was a tireless advocate for me and my kids; his legal expertise was most welcome during my very convoluted case. My ex-husband is a very trying, narcissistic piece of work, and Brad showed endless patience in dealing with his many shenanigans (and helped me stay patient too!). He handled my high-conflict case with ease and helped us reach settlement on the eve of trial, saving me a significant amount of money. I appreciate everything Brad did for us, but what I appreciate the most was his honesty and integrity - he represented me aggressively but never unfairly; he was always up front about what he believed the right path was, and he never pushed me to take any steps I wasn't comfortable with. He was never in it just to "get" my ex and never pushed for legal actions that weren't warranted just to create drama or raise the price tag. He was always honest about what our chances were before taking any legal actions, and did his best to save us money where he could. On top of all that, he's always cheerful and friendly when you talk to him - very refreshing! While it is always my hope that no one ever NEEDS this service, I would (and do) recommend Brad to anyone who needs a family law attorney.

Client
Where do I begin?! Brad is so amazing. If you want a family law attorney that is professional, honest, and speaks in a language that you can grasp your head around; then hire Brad. I can’t say enough wonderful things about him and his team. Brad is my second attorney in my simple yet messy divorce (which it didn’t have to be). My first attorney made ridiculous promises, which dragged my case out, and caused a lot of frustration. Divorce is a lengthy process in Cook County, so having an unprofessional attorney on your case is so frustrating. It was so refreshing to start working with Brad. He tells it straightforward and is honest about what is reality. He’s very responsive, and also is a fun guy to talk to. I applaud an attorney that can keep it cool in the negative process of divorce, especially in a slow county. Brad, you’re so great, and I’ll always be grateful for you. Thank you!

Fantastic experience!
I would highly recommend Bradley Kaye. He was professional, punctual, competent and above all compassionate. He kept my sons best interest as the priority during the difficult process of divorce for me and my family.

You found your guy
I was lucky enough to find Brad a few months ago when my attorney went on maternity leave. I was terrified to lose her, but was quickly reassured that I’m in good hands. Brad made the transition seamless! He quickly learned all of the ins and outs of my custody case- a pretty complex case at that! Brad communicates clearly, is extremely thorough, readily available, is very quick on his feet, and is excellent at keeping my eyes on the issues (he has to ‘talk me off the cliff’ from time to time). Even though this process is terrifying, and often times frustrating, I’m confident that my best interests are being represented in an honest, efficient, and strategic manner.

He is experienced, dedicated, and right on top of things at all times to make sure you get the BEST results possible during and in the finale of your divorce! He achieves and completes things very thoroughly in an extraordinary professional way!

Mark's the Petitioner in this divorce
Bradly took my case with gusto. He was precise in his explanation of the process, and advised me to all the rights I have as the petitioner. His performance in the discussion with the apposing attorney was outstanding, Had the man at a loss for words at one point. He could have gotten more for a settlement with ease, but I was attempting to be kind to my wife as to maybe someday reconcile... That ain't happening. In any event, I am very impressed and pleased by this attorney's work

Thankful!
My case was a bit difficult due to the non cooperation of the other party(my ex). Mr. Bradley Kaye handled my case with a no nonsense and a appropriately aggressive approach that was much needed in this particular situation. He was extremely helpful and any questions I had he explained clearly. I would highly recommend Mr. Kaye and his firm with your family law needs.
