Dean has done what others could not. After 3 years 4 law firms and 330,000 in retirement funds I lost everything. That I did not mind. It was my 3 children in an abusive house hold that hurt. Other law firms bounced around financial disclosures until I was broke. I had turned in many reports of abuse pictures word etc. Now I had video. http://youtu.be/hmkGfRB9b_w No longer could the teenagers be blamed. In a last ditch effort I borrowed money and went looking for a new lawyer. Most laughed at me. The big name fathers right guy would not even look for less than 10g. Law schools turned the backs to me. I turned to Avvo. I posted all my info. Dean responded with in minutes. I called his office on a Saturday. Again he was on top and we set an appointment Monday! Other lawyer responded some telling me what a bad person I was! I was at the end of my rope and so where the children. By Wednesday we went to court. Dean ran the room. I walked with an emergency order of custody! My children are now with me for almost two months. They are very happy, I'm over joyed. We have been to court several times. Each time Dean takes charge stands between me and any opposing force. I never say a word. He remembers and drives them back. Most firms stood behind me. They let the system beat me over and over.
I hate the system. I have few good words. But Dean has shown me hope that justice exists!
I will stand beside Dean Taradash anytime any where. If needed please contact me at email@example.com. He is that good!

It was great working with Dean Taradash and his team. Everything was done in a timely fashion, and I received documents related to my case immediately after they were prepared or entered in court. My phone calls and emails were returned immediately. The best part about my experience with Dean’s office was that I did not have to come into their office once. I live in Indiana so it would have been a long commute if Dean needed me to come in, but he was able to do everything by communicating with me through the telephone and email. This was amazing. The only time I had to come to Chicago was for my last court date when my divorce was finalized. Even then, Dean amazed me by his court room presence and organization. Everything went very smoothly and he was very well informed about the law and my case. The dedication by Dean and his staff was really great. I really enjoyed Dean’s representation of me.

I was referred to Dean by a former client of his. I was unable to come to his office during office hours and he was willing to meet with me over the weekend to discuss my case. It was an emotional time for me but Dean was still able to help me understand the system a little better and help me understand what I was entitled to in my divorce. He didn't want me to waste my time and money focusing on things that he knew wouldn't go my way. I respected that because I had heard horror stories about other attorneys who tell you what you want to hear and then disappear. That wasn't Dean. He kept cost down by helping me maneuver through what I should be fighting for and why. He was always willing to answer my questions. Even when I called him after hours. Although no one wants to go through a divorce, having Dean as a lawyer during the process made the fight a little less painful. The friend who referred me to him had nothing but positive things to say. He was actually able to gain custody of his son during his divorce which he didn’t expect but is so grateful to Dean for having fought and won for him. Dean has a lot of experience and is a lawyer who is willing to tell you the truth. He fought for me hard even on a few thing we knew I wouldn't prevail. And on many more things were we did. He has a great presence in the courtroom. The Judge’s respect him which was a huge confidence boost as his client. I hope my case never heats up again but if it does, I will not hesitate to call Dean. And recommend him to anyone that may ask for a suggestion. I didn’t want to need a lawyer but I trust Dean and think he did a very good job for me.
