Very Passionate Lawyers
Tiffany always put me at ease. She knew the right lawyers in her office to work with me. I started with Nadia, who put me at ease right away and relieved my stress level. Later, Alexandra worked with me. Alexandra defended my son's rights passionately. She made sure his rights and feelings were respected in each decision. Tiffany was involved in every single step. She made sure I and my son were represented fairly. Tiffany and her team stood up for me. They understood what I was going through and supported me. They never gave in. They got for my son what is fair and right.

Someone you can trust
Tiffany took over my child custody case from my initial attorney who literally did nothing for me. Originally, I thought Attorneys were not punctual and were just always unavailable, but with Tiffany that was never the case. Tiffany jumped right in, not missing a beat. She was familiar with what was going on, made recommendations and was always immediately responsive to what I did or did not want to do. She always very clearly advised me of the pros and cons moving forward. Throughout the process, she never lost patience listening to me complain or cry or just calling or emailing about something to set my mind at ease. Though you could say, she is just doing her job, she has a special way of dealing with people, never making you feel like you are bothering her or asking a stupid question. Not only has she acted as my legal counsel, she became my confidant on other levels as well. She is very knowledgeable and responsive and a wonderful attorney. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good attorney. You will not be disappointed!

Tiffany is honest, reliable and experienced
Tiffany Hughes is absolutely amazing! I was in such a hurry to get a lawyer and without hesitation she got me in for consult in 24 hours and took on my case without question whereas others wouldn't give me the time of day! So far everything has been smooth she has taken care of everything! I have not had to do anything but be patient! Definitely recommend! She helped with a long distance state to state child custody case! And I have got everything I've asked for! She truly cares and is down to earth and straight up with you no bs.

Cost Effective and Truly an Amazing Person and Attorney
I've worked with Tiffany for the past 3 years. Prior to working with her, I worked with two other Chicago Divorce Attorneys. I rarely leave reviews but I have to voice to all how amazing of an attorney and person she is. She is a shark in the court room when needed but her goal was truly to keep my costs down. No, divorces are NOT cheap. These people complaining about costs are a joke. What people need to focus on is who they can trust and who is going to be looking out for them when the case gets heated. You need to make sure that you have someone in your corner that you can trust and ensure that they are not churning your file. Tiffany and her Team are the only attorneys I have ever felt that I could trust. I knew that they had my best interests at heart and were trying to keep my costs down whenever possible. I'm sorry that I didn't hire Tiffany from the start but I'm thankful that I found her. I recommend Tiffany to everyone I know because she's truly the best.

Tiffany and her Team saved me
I had been in a divorce proceeding for over two years and had fired two attorneys due to mishandling, lack of responsiveness and overfilling. I found Tiffany and her Team at The Law Office of Tiffany M. Hughes and they saved me. The very first time I met Tiffany, it felt like a weight had been lifted. Tiffany took over my case and stepped into a mess and fixed it all. They are excellent communicators, professional, proactive, detail driven, responsive and very consciousness when it comes to racking up fees. They made sure that I knew every step of the process, approximate costs for doing what I wanted and what to expect. I could not have felt more cared for from the moment I had my first meeting with them to the final signings when I got divorced. The office is impeccable as well. If you are faced with the daunting task of finding strong, ethical legal representation in your divorce, I would urge you to retain Tiffany Hughes and her Team.

You can't afford to NOT have Tiffany in your corner!
I contacted the Law Office of Tiffany Hughes for assistance in modifying my custody agreement and started with Tiffany and her team. In speaking with Tiffany, I quickly came to see that, as a fellow mother and divorcee, she really cared about me and my daughter as people, not just as clients. She was determined to help me accomplish my goal of modifying my custody agreement and having child support set. Prior to contacting Tiffany's office, I tried to remedy the matter myself as well as previously working with many lawyers in the past. I got nowhere fast and wasted time and money. All of the billing has been more than fair and they are worth it! I highly recommend Tiffany Hughes and the Law Office of Tiffany Hughes Firm.

a champion for you and your children
When I first engaged the services of Tiffany Hughes, I had a sinking feeling that it would be impossible to achieve a better life for my kids. But Tiffany believed a cross-country relocation with the children was achievable. In the action that followed, Tiffany and her associates bobbed and weaved through complex litigation, somehow winning every significant collision in court. Over and over again, they outmaneuvered a murderer's row of the most expensive attorneys in town. With strategic foresight and tactical brilliance, Tiffany achieved every goal we set out to accomplish. If you are facing a high-conflict divorce, you need to talk to Tiffany Hughes. (If your ex gets to her first, you're going to be in trouble.)

Tiffany was an excellent attorney when handling my post divorce matters. She was professional, courteous, and intelligent. I felt very comfortable with her personality and professionalism from the first consultation. I would definitely hire again if needed!

Above and beyond
I couldn't be happier with the work Tiffany and her firm has done for me. Being a stay at home mom I didn't have a leg to stand on when leaving my ex husband. Tiffany and her firm not only went above and beyond but they communicated with me throughout the whole process. They held my ex accountable for dragging out the process which he is now responsible for paying and they even got me alimony, which is not common in a short term marriage in the state of FL. Divorce is never easy but by them making sure they turned over every stone by going through hundreds of documents gave me an ending that I never thought was possible. I'm grateful for Tiffany and her firm for doing an amazing job and working with me through a payment plan to be able to do so. Compared to my friend's experiences my Tiffany made it a walk in the park. My case was handled much better, not only with the outcome but with communication overall.

Hardworking and Driven
I am a divorce professional who met Tiffany about 2 1/2 years ago and have talked with her pretty regularly since. Since then, I have referred about 3-4 people I know to her and I have heard back from 2, both saying they were very satisfied and happy with the outcome that Tiffany helped provide. I find her to be hardworking and driven, and I believe she cares about each client tremendously. I will continue to refer clients to Tiffany!

No Stone Unturned
Tiffany was both that voice of reason and strong voice advocating for me. She worked diligently and persistently, with a thorough approach, in order to respond to matters of my case quickly. She heard my concerns, provided options and was that much needed voice, aligned with what I truly needed in my case.

Competent, Dedicated, and No Surprises
I hired Tiffany's firm to handle my divorce, well after I had dug many holes for myself and put myself in a vulnerable position. Tiffany Hughes, will set you up so as to avoid nasty surprises and traps you never knew existed. Tiffany's firm was able to explain to me in terms I could understand my position and the damages I had already done to myself. No nonsense, and so I had my expectations set. Tiffany and her firm were excellent at keeping me up to date with each step of the process. In my experience, not knowing is the worst situation, and this law firm kept my blinders off, cushioned my expectations, and did not leave me hanging in a world of hurt. Sadly, divorce is not only expensive, but it is time-consuming and stretches into the future with many unexpected twists in the path. The Hughes firm was always available to provide timely updates and advised action steps, and cautioned me about many of my own instincts. Tiffany has good market intelligence which she used to inform her advice and my decisions. For instance, she was able to advise me as to the likely treatment I would receive based on the judge assigned to my case. In addition, the Hughes firm has dealt with many different law firms in the Chicago area, and Tiffany seems to have a good feel as to which are the stronger and more aggressive adversaries and those which may be are weaker and more willing to compromise. Good value for money paid. The firm did not send me on any expensive wild goose chases and worked hard to ensure efficiency so as to keep my costs under control. Importantly, there were NO financial surprises!

Excellent Firm
Tiffany and her team of attorneys were excellent to work with. From the start and the initial consult, I felt that my needs and mission were understood. The firm worked together and was always on top of my case. I didn't feel like just a number or another client. I truly felt that my case and the other cases I'm certain were going on simultaneously were all given due attention and care. I would highly recommend this firm. If you don't work directly with Tiffany, any of the other attorneys she has on her team will certainly handle your case with the utmost care and professionalism.

Best attorney!!
I not only recommend attorney Tiffany Hughes but I guarantee once you have used her service you too will look no further. She responds in an extreme timely matter, she is a very knowledge, trustworthy person. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. I used Tiffany for child support case in Sarasota Florida, she is a wonderful attorney I could not have been happier and I will never go anywhere else. Also her supporting attorney Dagny Broom and all office stuff are outstending as well!
