Great, stress-free experience; wish I'd hired him sooner
Mr. Sigmond represented my case professionally, reliably and honestly, and did a stellar job even though our interaction was all long-distance. Before I found his office I was stressed out, as a no-fault car accident had caused some ongoing issues. The accident was in Illinois and I was from out of state, and the statute of limitations was nearly up. I had gotten some confusing/wrong advice from a different lawyer I'd spoken to and didn't know how to handle it. Finding Steven Sigmond's law office was a blessing and a relief, and thanks to his representation I ended up with the desired outcome. I only wish I'd found this office sooner, as it would have saved me a lot of worry.

The only choice!
A family member recommended Steven Sigmond to me and I am glad I listened. He is the only choice when it comes to choosing a lawyer. He was kind, easy going, and explained everything. The whole process was easy and effortless for myself. I was very happy with his work and will only use him in the future.

Nice guy who cares about his client
Steven took my very small case and did a good job. He took care of everything without me having to do or know much. He as responsive...while being brief. I have worked with many attorneys in different fields and can tell the good and the bad :-(

A very Satisfied Client
I was very pleased with the outcome and proffessionalism of Mr. Sigmond. I had come to him with a case in which the previous lawyer I hired had not come through. Mr. Sigmond informed me there was a lot of mistakes and problems with the case and he would do his best. He actually resolved the matter in a very timely fashion and I was very satisfied and relieved.

"My Lawyer"
I had the pleasure to work with Mr. Sigmund on several occasions. He had helped me with my divorce, a personal injury case, real estate closings, and he assisted with many other legal questions over the years. It is very comforting to know that I can always call “my lawyer” and to know that I can count on him to guide me through the legal intricacies of today’s world. He has repeatedly gone above and beyond my expectations and I have referred him to family and friends with full confidence that he will take care of them with the same professional courtesy that he has extended to me.
