Able to provide clarity during a very difficult time.
I hired Steve after our initial consultation call. Even during the initial call he took his time to listen to my full story and explain his next steps. He was very prompt on answering my questions and delivered answers when he said he was going to (something I have had issues with past lawyers giving false timelines). He was able to read through all the documents I sent to him and then was able to explain to me in non-lawyer lingo what all the documents meant. When dealing with will/trust/estate issue when a parent passes is hard enough, then you add Covid and being out of state and it can get very frustrating. Steve was able to explain to laws and next steps I should be taking. He was a very efficient and detail oriented, which brought a lot of relief and clarity to me during a difficult time. I will be contacting Steve in the future for any lawyer needs I have back in Illinois (hopefully I don’t need to contact him again :). I would recommend Steve to anyone in his area looking for a an efficient & ethical representation.

Stephen Thacker divorce lawyer.
I used Stephen Thacker for my divorce. He was very professional and extremely helpful during a hard situation. Always returned phone calls and emails to answer all my questions. Several of my friends have used Steve for their divorces and have had same experiences. I highly recommend Steve if you are in need of a lawyer.

Stephen M. Thacker reviewed by recent client Thomas
I hired Mr. Thacker to handle my divorce. He came highly recommended to me by a respected friend. My divorce was very adversarial so it took a lot of patience on Mr. Thacker’s part to sort out and negotiate through a tsunami of nonsense. His demeanor with me & presence in the courtroom was always respectful & professional unlike the opposing lawyers. He finalized my divorce in my favor and also achieved a fair & proper ‘Parenting & Custody Agreement’ that involved my 4 year old son. The joy of my life! I’m grateful to Mr. Thacker for his excellent counsel and for successfully negotiating & finalizing my divorce but most of all for legally securing my loving relationship with my son. I highly recommend Mr. Thacker to anyone in need of an honest, experienced and knowledgeable attorney that has all the know-how to navigate through the courts to get positive results.

Do not hire
I hired Mr. Thacker for my disability case. The first meeting went well except went he told me that fibromyalgia to him was a middle aged woman's issue not a real disease but in their head. I hired him anyway and paid him. After that, he had horrible communication skills! I tried to call to ask a question and he would not call me back. I then sent emails and I actually had to send them two or three times over a two to three week period before he got back to me. Very disorganized, always on vacation and lost my case. I went with another attorney and won. The only way to get him to respond was to threaten to email his boss. After I lost, I asked a few questions about the reasons why and he told me that I could use him to appeal and pay five thousand, then he would go over my questions but that he wasn't charging me for the twelve minutes that he had been talking to me.

Response from Stephen Thacker October 28, 2015
I am so sorry that this client feels this way. She misunderstood what I told her about fibromyalgia. She decided to hire another attorney for the appeal and I am glad that she won. Again, it is unfortunate that she felt that it was such a negative experience.
