After my dad passed away in 2005, I needed help with probate
proceedings in Cook County, IL.
John Ashenden came highly recommended to me by a
financial advisor. I was not familiar with legal issues
concerning estates. John helped me through this
devastating time in my life. John was very knowledgeable
and made the process seamless for me. I am very
grateful for his expertise and friendship. John's
professional, down to earth nature comforted me
when I needed it most. I knew I was in capable hands.
I would highly recommend John from my previous
business experience with him.

I work in a public guardian office in Nevada and we contracted with John for a legal matter in Illinois. John is very knowledgeable about trusts, real estate, and civil litigation. He is aggressive, persuasive, and persistent. All his pleadings are articulate and his logic is precise. He is a hard worker and will get you the outcome you are looking for.
