hire Erin!
I highly recommend Erin Masters! Would definitely hire her again and recommend to others! Erin helped me with a divorce case, and I couldn't be more grateful! Not only did I feel heard and understood, Erin also effectively conveyed what I should be doing or thinking about doing, when to stop, when to move forward, vs. telling me only what I wanted or needed to hear. She was the voice of reason through the entire process. Needless to mention, the basics of any service provider - timely communication, availability, and billing transparency - were all there. Thank you!

Quick and effective
Erin helped me quickly enter an order to enforce my parenting time. My ex-wife had been withholding our daughter stating she would continue to withhold her until the Coronavirus pandemic was finished. Needless to say, I was very concerned that I would not see my daughter for months, and the courts were closed with exception to emergencies. Erin worked quickly to get my ex to agree to enforcing the time. She worked so quickly, in fact, that I was able to have my parenting time (with make up time) the very next weekend. Very impressed and pleased.

Wouldn't have anyone else represent me
Wouldn't have anyone else represent me other than Erin and Anthony. My child support case is a doozy and let me tell you my ex husband hasn't been the easiest or nicest person to deal with along with his wife. That being said Anthony has made sure I wouldn't have any issue with them (nasty emails from them, threats, ECT.) Has even dealt with my ex's lawyer requesting an emergency petition on a days notice! He made sure to that I was represented! Erin and Anthony really make it a point that they are there for you no matter what! Any questions or concerns they are there! They only want what's best for you and your family. I can not thank them enough for everything they do and have done!

Gets the job done everytime!!!
I went to Erin after I realized I couldn’t finish my divorce on my own (it was dragging for a year at that point). She took action right away and my divorce was settled 3 months later! I got everything I wanted in my settlement, which was to keep my kids and home! Over the next 3 years, my ex would drag me to court over and over again over bogus accusations and every single time, Erin saved the day and won each case back to back! This woman is a blessing! She knows the law very well and also went after him for her fees that I incurred because they were a result of his lies! After hiring numerous lawyers and losing each case he filed, he finally gave up because he realized no lawyer is a match for Erin!

ADVICE to those considering a Divorce Lawyer
My marriage ended abruptly after 27 years. I turned to a Chicago lawyer that was highly rated. Let me tell you, NOT all lawyers are created equal. Many tell you what you want to hear. They are so good at it, I felt the man I chose to represent me, being higher priced then the average, assured my advantage. I WAS WRONG! Take my advice please, and save yourself from having to shop twice, and paying out double retainers. Finding the right divorce lawyer is CRITICAL to maintaining your parental rights, and your finances. THE MASTERS LAW FIRM was heaven sent. Erin and Anthony are first rate lawyers who fight to the end. They are true professionals, trustworthy and compassionate about their work. You will not feel "pushed aside" after you submitt your retainer. They will answer all your questions, and develope a strategy that allows you to retain your dignity when accusations start to fly. Do not settle for 2nd best. I highly recommend this law firm. You will come to realize their true value in the courtroom. They are in your corner, and you could not be in better hands. Thank you Erin & Anthony! My very best wishes for a Happy Holliday! Regards, Mark C.

Recommendation
I recommend Erin Master. She is someone who is truly on your side. I had a complicated case but she was able to have it completed from start to finish less than 10 months. Erin follows up on all emails or phone calls in a timely matter. Her invoices are clear and nothing is hidden. She was always willing to answer any of my questions or explain "lawyer language" to me. I highly recommend Erin Masters.

Petition under Hague Convention
I had a very difficult case in the United States Federal Court. My ex husband filed a Petition against me under the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child abduction asking to return our two sons to Lithuania. Seeking for the legal representation, I was advised by the U.S. Department of State to contact lawyer Erin E. Masters. I was so lucky to have the team of the best lawyers Erin E. Masters and Anthony G. Joseph representing me in this difficult trial. They represented with the highest standards of law, but also provided support and empathy through the process. The communication was fantastic, always answered every question, explained every situation and possible outcome. As it was a very fast track case, Erin and Anthony worked hard including weekends to prepare everything for the hearing. There was only one hearing and the Decision was totally in my favor. All my family, especially the kids, are very grateful! It is also fair to mention that the legal expenses for the amount of services provided was very very reasonable. Taking in mind my difficult financial situation, Erin even agreed to provide the service for the reduced fee. I will gladly recommend Erin Masters and Anthony Joseph to represent any of my friends and family in need of an excellent and highly professional family attorney.

Fantastic attorney!
I was introduced to Erin by another attorney.  I was immediately impressed with her professionalism and approachability.  I hired her to assist me with a pre-marital agreement roughly 4 months before my wedding.  Erin was very knowledgeable about the existing Illinois statue and I felt very comfortable having her represent me.  Erin and I communicated via email, text and phone calls at all hours due to my hectic travel schedule. She maintained the highest level of availability to answer my questions; both from a legal point of view, as well as identifying what was realistic and practical.  She did all of this while she was 8 months pregnant preparing for her first child!  Erin will go above and beyond to make sure the job gets done well and with precision.  I will gladly recommend Erin and her law firm to represent any of my friends and family in need of an excellent and highly responsive family attorney.  I look forward to following her career and watching her succeed.

#TeamErinMasters!
Erin was referred by a friend and I couldn't be more grateful! She helped me with child support, and education, medical, extracurricular reimbursement with the father of my daughter. It was a tough case, but she was responsive, supportive, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. She fought for what was in my daughter's best interest in an honest, respectable and professional manner. I trust her 110% and would return to her in a heartbeat if I ever need an attorney. She has my highest recommendation!

Best Attorney there is
Erin is the greatest. I called Erin when I had an issue with my Support payments and a levy I received. She rushed right in and cleared up my issue faster than I could ever imagine. She was honest and showed genuine care and concern for my family and I. I believe no one else could have done a better or faster job than Erin Masters. If I ever have an issue and need help I will be going straight to her. Thank you Erin for all your help

Child support and custody
Erin helped us to resolved an uneasy situation. We hired her to get an paper an agreement with my ex and my ex got gready and what was supposed to be an easy situation became a year long battle. Erin always worked to make it easy and cost effective for us and helped solve the case. We would highly recommend her.

Good Advice
She told me what I needed to do to go through with some legal issues I have. She explained to me how she can help me or what route I can take if I don't hire her. I would recommend her to family or friends.

Wonderful Attorney
Erin helped me with my child custody agreement and then a change I had wanted to make a couple of years later when I had moved. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. I never had worries during the process because of her expertise, and she made a not so pleasant experience much easier to deal with. Erin always explained everything and made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. Erin was also very available and always easy to contact or quick to respond. She was absolutely great to work with, and I would definitely recommend her and go back to her in the future.

Visitation Rights
I needed a lawyer to sort out visitation rights and once I hired Erin the process went quick & smooth. Tried other lawyers but they made it complicated. Glad that the situation is sorted out.

Excellent, Supportive Divorce Attorney
I reached out to Erin first for a consultation in person regarding my marriage and possible divorce. She was very supportive and kind, explaining to me my options and actually wishing me the best with my marriage. I again reached out via email a few times with further questions, and Erin was always very quick to respond. When I ultimately decided to file for divorce, Erin helped make the process as easy as possible considering the situation. She was very compassionate and caring when I was going through such an emotionally difficult time. She explained the entire process to me and made everything much less stressful. On the day of my proceedings, she again helped keep me at ease. I always felt as though I was in the best hands and that Erin would make sure I was protected in the entire process. I would highly recommend Erin Masters for anyone who should need a divorce attorney.
