Smooth talker over the phone but he didn't show much enthusiasm in the court room. He was more concerned with keeping a good rapport with the judge and opposing attorney than defending me. Was late for several court dates which ended up costing me since I also had to pay child attorney fees. There were also a couple of occasions that he didn't file the correct paperwork. He also rescheduled several court dates and charged me court time to just sit around for hours waiting to reschedule. After about a year of no progress in my case, mostly due to rescheduling, I got tired of getting nickeled and dimed and fired him.

Mr. Nelson was able to help me through one of the hardest times in my entire life...a very emotionally draining divorce...and he helped me set up my qdro as well. It's hard to know which way to turn when you finally realize you need to get a divorce and I am so grateful for the help I received and continue to receive from Gordon! I'm much better off now.

I was extremely pleased with the professionalism of the staff at Taradash & associates. I was a little hesitant at first.....to proceed with an online divorce.Not truly believing in the convenience and price of it all. To my surprise the firm delivered above my expectations. Everything outlined on their website was followed without flaw. If I had questions...they were answered professionally and timely. The entire process was quick. When my lawyer (Gordon Nelson) met with me in court...I was assured it would be quick. We were in court less than 5 minutes! Great firm! I highly recommend them!

I HIRED GORDON NELSON FOR MY DIVORCE. Gordon Nelson was an excellent lawyer. I cant even begin to tell you how pleased and thankful I was to find him, but I will try. Here goes: when I first spoke with Gordon, I felt as though my life was in complete shambles because my husband and I were getting a divorce and our home was in foreclosure. Gordon was so kind and knew exactly what needed to be done. What a relief that was. Gordon was very responsive to my phone calls and emails on all occasions also. he even kept my costs low. he always knew what to do next...he really knew the laws surrounding divorce in Illinois.
For all those women who are struggling with divorce and feel like nobody can help them, just realize that there are good people out there who will help guide your way through a divorce and arent just after your money. Gordon Nelson is a professional, helpful, kind, and trustworthy chicago lawyer and you dont find many good and trustworthy lawyers these days. I would definately recommend Gordon!

Mr. Nelson helped me when my marriage fell apart. At the time I was having a hard time understanding everything that was happening. He worked with me practically everyday when the case first started until we got everything under control. He did a great job anticipating issues and keeping me informed of developments. I went from feeling confused and out of control to feeling like I had everything under control and knew what we were trying to do and why.
I have to say I was terrified of all of the uncertainty when I first called his firm. He and the other lawyers helped me get things under control quickly and the whole case was done pretty quickly.
I highly recommend him and his law firm.

I used Gordon and his partner, Dean Taradash, for my divorce. I had two other attorneys before them and I wish I had just started with Gordon and Dean to begin with. It would have saved me a lot of trouble and money.
They were very good at keeping me informed of what was going on and what it all meant. With my first two lawyers, I always felt like things were just happening and were kind of out of control -- like the case just moved along with no rhyme or reason. With Gordon I had a big-picture view of what I should expect when and how things were going to be accomplished. He always delivered.
They also returned phone calls. THAT was a huge plus!
I had a problem recently with my ex not following the court orders. I have a guarantee from this law firm that they'll enforce any order in my case for free. I didn't believe it but when I called them, they immediately wrote my ex and called my accountant and got everything in order in a few days. They didn't charge me a dime.
I really, really recommend them.

Mr. Nelson was very responsive. He was clear on options and I felt he had my best interest at hand. Worked with me on payments. Was aggressive in handling my divorce against my wife. As a man this felt great. Was always busy in the day in court, but followed up in the evening with emails and made calls and returned calls( usually 24 to 48 hours).
