Trustworthy Law Firm
Filing for bankruptcy can be a very scary decision. I can truly say that this firm listens to all of their clients concerns and issues and reassures them that they will take care of everything. I would say to be honest with them from the beginning and your case will go smoothly. Both Joe Sr and Joe Jr made me comfortable from the beginning. I would HIGHLY recommend this law firm, they relieved a big burden for me.

Joe Doyle and his staff are true experts in bankruptcy law. Joe has a strong professional network and a good relationship with the court. Whether you are speaking with Joe or one of his staff you can be assured that you are getting solid advice and that your needs will be met. They take the time to understand your situation, thoroughly explain your options and the process. Joe and his staff lookout for your best interest and are kind and understanding when you call them in a panic. I would highly recommend Joseph Doyle to my friends and family.

My wife and I were in financial trouble and really needed help. I was hesitant to file bankruptcy, since it seemed like such a terrible thing to do. However, one call to Joseph P. Doyle's office changed that feeling. They were friendly, courteous, and very professional. They never made us feel anything but accepted, even though we got ourselves in over our heads. The process was much easier than we could have ever hoped for and we owe all of that to Joe and his staff. We are paying back 100% of our debt, which was important to me, but without any of the high interest. Having that stress off of our shoulders means so much and I would highly recommend calling them for help...they will put you at ease.

Truly A Lifesaver !!
Absolutely loved our experience with this entire firm from our 1st initial appointment. So very warm & caring they listened to our concerns & actually made us feel at ease in helping us prepare for filing due to some issues with some IRS back taxes for my husband which also lead to delinquent bills . For years we were struggling with liens and wage garnishment without any hope in sight until we came across them. They felt like family & we are able to once again breathe again thanks to their expertise . They do a great job in helping you understand how the process works & very accommodating with scheduling ,we also learned very valuable lessons through their credit counseling courses which I think helped us see some very valuable points in helping us reestablish our selves and see just what we were doing wrong in the past that led to our circumstances. Can't say enough about them. They are truly Amazing !!!!

Amazing experience!
My personal experience with this firm has been absolutely perfect and I can’t be any happier. From the first moment you step into the office they make you feel at ease showing you that they care about your problem. They transmit you the feeling that you need in these complicated circumstances, so when you walk out of their office you are a different person without the burden of the problems that you bring to them. You feel safe, treated with respect, well represented, and self-confident. Life gives second chances to those who are carrying the heavy burden of debt, and at this law office they make you feel fine and relaxed about it. I have been very lucky to have this lawyer and his team representing me and helping me out through every step of the process. They have made a huge difference in this experience, and instead of being painful and plenty of worries, it has been smooth and easy. I am very happy now and very satisfied with their services, so I strongly recommend this attorney with no hesitation. Another member of my family who filed Chapter 7 with them in the past referred me, and in both cases they were successful. Do yourself a favor and visit this office. You won’t regret it and you will feel much better, besides, the price for filing and everything else is very reasonable and totally worth it for your piece of mind.

Look no further!
Joseph Doyle is the antidote to stress relief! I highly recommend him to anyone & everyone no matter how difficult of a case you may have! Immediately, during the consultation, I was confident that I came to the right person! His easy going & caring personality made me feel comfortable explaining my situation. With years of experience and his vast knowledge of bankruptcy he was able to put my mind at ease. He thoroughly explained the process step by step (using terms I could comprehend! Lol) there were no surprises! When the final day came I felt prepared & I knew what to expect. Thank you Mr. Doyle for unloading my overwhelming burden of debt and helping me to achieve a new beginning!

In Just a Few More Years
In just a few years, my financial woes will be under control thanks to my bankruptcy attorney Joseph P. Doyle in Schaumburg. His office schedules appointments around you and they see you on time. After sitting down your questions are answered and everything you need to do and know is explained. The staff expresses genuine concern. They are pleasant, thoughtful and helpful. Phone calls to his office are returned promptly. Although it is rare that a return call is necessary because someone is always available to assist you. My embarrassment was quickly relieved and the stigma that surrounds bankruptcy was minimized by the detailed unique experience with Attorney Doyle and staff. They are happy to serve and I am delighted to have chosen Joseph P. Doyle to represent me.

Going through bankruptcy is absolutely stressful. Mr. Doyle and his staff put me at ease right away and they were with me every step of the way through my bankruptcy process. They work fast and the process is as seamless as can be. I highly recommend Mr. Doyle and his staff if you are considering bankruptcy. The initial consultation is free and extremely helpful. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Now I have begun my journey to get out of debt and I feel relieved.

I would definitely recommend this lawyer.
Hi, I recently went through the very scary bankruptcy process and Mr. Doyle and his team made it simple and not quite so scary. I really appreciate that. I would absolutely recommend this lawyer and his spot on staff.

Good people, Excellent attorney
Joseph Doyle and his team are professional and effective. The process of bankruptcy seemed overwhelming and complicated. Immediately, at the first meeting, I was put at ease by Mr. Doyle Sr. I was guided through the process, step by step, from beginning to end. Every question was answered clearly, I received prompt replies to all my emails. Mr. Doyle Jr. even met with me on a Sunday to accommodate my schedule. These are good people who are sincerely caring and compassionate. Combined with their knowledge and experience. they are a formidable advocate for their clients. I highly recommend The Law Offices of Joseph P. Doyle.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Just no.
I’d comment on his ability as an attorney if we had gone as far as him actually doing the work. However, after a meeting with Joe mid- month, we planned on starting a ch. 13 bankruptcy asap. To complicate matters, I was working within a short window of time, Joe knew this. Any action would need to be filed by the 30th of this month. After meeting him and his father at his office for several hours, we had a pretty clear game plan and I left awaiting next steps. Several days went by, I heard nothing. I left two voicemail messages, got no return call. On the 17th, a letter confirming our plan of action arrived and on the same day, Joe’s mother, who also works at his office called me looking for a document that doesn’t exist. This document was discussed in office ad nauseam. I advised his mother again, that there was no such executed document. All I had was a document I received after the fact and I would send that to them. I did so, and received no confirmation of receipt, no follow up. This past week, my other lawyer tried reaching out to Joe, to collaborate. They never connected. Yesterday, the 29th, with one day left to file this action, I called Joe again to find out what was happening. He proceeded to explain to me that he did not wish to proceed with the plan of action because he felt like I had a separate action against my previous lawyers and would not file anything against another lawyer. I asked him if my bankruptcy could just be filed on its own without a simultaneous action against the previous attorney. He said yes, then quoted me $4500 to do the bankruptcy after telling me previously that it would cost $1895 to do the bankruptcy. He then continued on about how no lawyer would sue another lawyer, and trying to reroute the conversation back to the bankruptcy, I told him that I know an attorney that does legal malpractice (which I do) and should I contact him for the other leg of this “idea” Joe had- then we could just focus on the bankruptcy. Joe became irate, and began to raise his voice at me. He told me that he isn’t going to handle my bankruptcy and when I asked why, as we carried forward this whole time with the understanding that we were going forward, Joe raised his voice again and told me to “get over it and grow the f*** up” then hung up the phone on me. He left me in quite a precarious situation, and I don’t think it’s fair to do that to someone who was led to believe they had a plan of action. I believe Joe maybe was in over his head with the complexity of the case and didn’t expect me to tell him I knew an attorney that practices legal malpractice. Lawyers don’t generally like lawyers that sue other lawyers and I believe that confirming I have a relationship with one spooked Joe. Regardless, Joe didn’t act professionally or ethically in handling his concerns, waiting until I tracked him down to discuss them, and until the eleventh hour to leave me high and dry. A caveat to anyone with pressing matters, perhaps. Also, be warned that the rest of the firm is just lovely. His legal assistant is no nonsense but wonderful. His father takes his time and is genuinely caring. Joe Sr. Well warn you that his son is impatient and hard to get along with but stick it out, once he gets going, he’s quite good. Sr. didn’t lie about the impatience of his son. The talking over, interrupting, condescending at, “yeah yeah, I don’t have time to listen to this” and “I’m the busiest guy here” and then subsequently ask you to answer a question that you had just explained but his tone was too precious to stop and just listen. Separate of that, as a woman, he irked the hell out of me. A part of our issues involved the purchase of our home, and he kept making comments like “yeah, women are like that, their home is their whole existence” and “my wife is just like this so I can see you’re the same way “. Honestly, I felt like it was 1956.
