I found Annette through a quick google search. I read the previous comments and felt comfortable contacting her for my divorce proceedings. She was spontaneous with her return call and very good at explaining the the process and what she could do for me. Her professionalism, knowledge, and support throughout the process was awesome (10+). I still keep in contact with her for advice on my family needs and she has been there to provide me with good guidance. She is a very level headed, logical, and reasonable person that can help put things into better perspective and realism for you in a time when your emotions are running rampant. I could not have found a better person and lawyer to help me through the most difficult time of my life.

Annette is pragmatic and strategically savvy. Matrimony and child custody issues can be highly emotionally charged, but Annette always is a straight-shooter with a realistic view of what can be achieved and what would be an unreasonable waste of money. She obviously is well-respected by the judges and other counsel in Chicago. I've recommended her to several friends who have hired her and been very satisfied with her representation. Her fees are reasonable and I never felt she wasted my time or money.

My case was highly litigated and lasted almost four years. Ms Fernholz was an excellent attorney that gave excellent advice and was well informed and reliable !

I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Fernholz possesses a broad knowledge of the law and excellent trial and appellate skills. She combines her legal knowledge with a healthy dose of common sense in her efforts to resolve a case. Having been her opponent, I have seen first-hand that she has the respect of the judiciary, opposing counsel, peers, and clients. I have referred friends and family members to her which is the highest compliment a peer can offer another attorney.
