I am a licensed attorney in Illinois and for my divorce I knew I needed the best. Burt was recommended by a mutual friend. Burt represented me in attorney-assisted mediation. I was very impressed with his negotiating skills and his ability to keep me focused on the important things, my children, not my anger. That is not an easy thing to do for a client; but Burt did it. It made me see what I needed. Burt also made sure I felt I was being listened to by him and heard in the mediation sessions by the mediator and opposing counsel through checking in with me frequently - this was unexpected but welcome. Hiring Burt to represent me was the best decision I made regarding my divorce because it led to a settlement with which I can live.

I hired Burt and was not pleased with his performance. I did not trust his advice and felt his firm was more interested in continuing the case rather than settling it. I would suggest that you hire another firm. He was overmatched by my ex's attorney.

I will always be grateful to Burt Hochberg and his team for their unwavering commitment and professionalism while representing me during my divorce.
Initiating a divorce is a life altering a decision and it can be difficult to know where to start. Fortunately, Burt immediately put me at ease. During our initial meeting he patiently listened to my particular situation, needs and concerns. He explained the end-to-end legal process, including alternatives to divorce and settlement options. He managed my expectations regarding typical time frames and the expenses I should expect to incur.
Burt answered all of my questions, and at the end of our meeting, I felt well educated and informed.
From that point forward, Burt and his team acted swiftly, efficiently and effectively on my behalf. They were easy to reach, and my questions were always answered promptly and professionally. I was kept informed by office meetings, phone calls and emails.
While representing me in court, Burt was confident, thorough and delivered results. He did not engage in unnecessary drama or theatrics with the opposing party (despite their best efforts).
Out of the courtroom, Burt was a compassionate, pragmatic and thoughtful person, who always made me feel like I was his most important client.
I am thankful I am not one of those people who have a horrible divorce story to tell. I had the benefit of the support and guidance of a clever and gifted legal team, reaching an outcome in my favor (exceeding my expectations) without sacrificing my dignity or integrity.
It wasn’t easy, but having Burt Hochberg as my attorney made all the difference.
