Review Sarah Toney
  • The calm during a storm

    Posted by a client

    Sarah was referred to me when I found myself in need of a criminal attorney for the first time after I was arrested on a warrant that I was unaware of. During my court appearance for this nearly 20 year old issue, the public defender suggested I accept the deal of “time served.” I did not want to do this, but agreed in order to end my 12 hour ordeal. However, I knew I would hire an attorney upon my release and explore my options. I also knew that accepting the plea was a gamble, but Sarah successfully had the plea vacated. At one point after the plea was vacated, I was offered the payment of a fine, etc., but I declined as I was not guilty of this charge. Sarah advised that the case would then go to trial and explained the possible outcomes. Fortunately, a trial did not commence and the case was dismissed. It was obvious that Sarah was ready to do everything it would take to achieve the best outcome and I’m happy to have had her as my attorney during an ordeal that finally came to a close nearly a year after it began.

    I am a cardiologist, made a mistake and got a DUI.
    Sarah Toney was recommended. she was very respectful, understood my psychological condition and anxiety about DUI.
    she had a very calming effect on me, and I already felt good after I met her.
    She also responded to my questions and emails,when ever i had one.
    i hope none of you will drink and drive, but if you make the mistake and have a DUI, Sarah is your best chance.

  • The best lawyer I've ever worked with hands down!

    Sarah came highly recommended and she lived up to the hype! Stacked against the odds, she was absolutely fantastic at handling my domestic battery case, which resulted in a not guilty verdict. Sarah definitely knows the Illinois justice system and did an incredible job navigating me throughout the entire process. She effectively devised the proper and effective strategy for trial. Sarah also provided great advice on all of the moving parts of the process resulting in my successful outcome. Smart is an understatement that I would use to describe Sarah. She not only gets the bigger picture but can also get down into the nitty-gritty details. By far, the best and most effective lawyer I've ever worked with. I would highly recommend her, without any hesitation, to anyone that needs effective and affordable legal representation.

    Sarah Toney was absolutely amazing when in came to handling my case. She was professional and knowledgeable about everything that had to do with my case. It was a very stressful time for myself and my family and she constantly made sure I understood everything that was happening. She always answered my calls in a timely manner and I always felt as though I could trust her. Sarah did everything in her power to help me To get my case dropped and I would highly recommend her as an attorney.

    A staunch pessimist, when I was charged with two counts of battery, which I did not commit, I thought my world was over. I was going to lose a 15 year career, my wife and children would be without support, & my good name would be forever tarnished. My wife scoured the internet in search of Chicago's best. Upon crossing Ms. TONEY's page, and without hesitation, she knew she had a winner...a fighter who would see this through to the end and wouldn't settle for anything less than a victory. Sarah put me at ease and didn't hesitate to update me as conditions evolved. Sarah let the dogs out once we took to the floor, the opposition reeled as she took control of the courtroom. She not only was able to get a not guilty for myself, but for my brother as well. The judge saw through the collaboration of the prosecution and announced, " Ms. X, you started a fight, and you lost! Case dismissed". I highly recommend THE TONEY Law Firm for any and all. She is a consummate professional and heroine for justice. HOORAH!

  • Absolutely Amazing Response Time and Her Team is Excellent!

    Sarah Toney and her team of Attorneys are absolutely amazing. Last year I was pulled over for a DWI in Cook County. It was total BS and there was absolutely no reasoning for the officer to pull me over. I didn't blow because I had consumed a couple of beers with coworkers earlier in the night, and though I wasn't drunk, but I didn't want to incriminate myself further by having any alcohol show up on the breathalyzer. Naturally the officer arrested me any after doing well on 98% of my field sobriety test. The next day I looked in Avvo and found Sara. She personally contacted me the same day and got me in touch with a great attorney, Sami Ashari, who ran circles around the prosecution and got all the charges completely dropped before we even went to trial. Now that's good counseling. All I can say is the money is worth it if you have a competent team. Thank you Sarah and Sami. Sorry it took me this long to write this review.

  • I honestly think Sarah Toney is the best attorney I've ever met

    Posted by Rich

    My 25 year old daughter and I interviewed three different attorneys to represent her for DUI #3, which was sad but true. We found Sarah to be very knowledgeable and genuinely interested in helping us. My daughter was facing upgraded felony charges which would have most certainly included jail time, but with Sarah's tenacity she was able to negotiate a deal with the Prosecutor which was very favorable. She was always available to answer questions and responded promptly. I would without question recommend her.
