Exemplary work under pressure!
I was under a time constraint and needed a law suit filed quickly and procedurally correct. Ms. Krafthefer was called on a Monday morning and by Wednesday morning had the paper written, filed and had us in front of a judge. We worked on an agreed motion and by 11:30 that day had the action I requested moving forward. I commend Ms. Krafthefer on her knowledge and diligence. I would whole heartedly use her again and would refer her to all needing a lawyer dealing with the election process. Thank you!

Professional, intelligent, passionate advocate!
I came to Keri-Lyn with a "mess" of a case! As an attorney myself I'm a control freak but after a week of working with Keri-Lyn I realized that Inwas in the very best hands and I was able to trust her expertise and that of her amazing associate(s) and staff! She was timely, responsible, professional and a true expert in the area of election and appellate law! The result was swift and in our favor because the brief she wrote covered all of our points, was easy to read and a solid legal argument that was undeniable to even the appellate court! Many thanks to Keri-Lyn and her team! I highly recommend her!

We Won!
Keri-Lyn helped me with a petition challenge. First she researched to see if she thought she could win the case. When she decided she could she took my case. She was well prepared and she won, the opposing side dropped their challenge. She did her homework even though this was for a Park District Commissioner race. I felt like I received A+ representation.
