The Definition of an Excellent Lawyer
From start to end, Rochelle was completely in charge of my case. She provided me with practical options and advice on how to approach my case and what the best solution for my situation was. She got through it all, from county to county, with difficulties in hand, and made her presence felt. Thank you Rochelle for all of your efforts.

Knowledgable & Supportive
Rochelle helped to educate me on the process of obtaining a legal parenting agreement and advised me every step of the way. This is a difficult process and for my situation she ensured the process moved along as efficiently as possible no matter what circumstances cropped up. She communicated clearly and effectively for me in correspondence. This helped to relieve some stress from me in this already stressful situation.

Excellent Family Lawyer
Rochelle was my family lawyer on the custody of my child. Initially, I had another who didn't care, neither respond to my emails or calls. After eight months of losing almost everything, including my hope, I decided to look for a new lawyer. I wanted someone who cares and really fight for the best interests of my son and me. I visited four lawyers, among them was Rochelle. She gave me peace of mind since day one. Now, after working with her, I can say she is honest and made me feel safe during all this process. She is professional, organized, made quick and intelligent decisions on my case. She is knowledgeable about family law and used it on my favor. A bonus is that she speaks Spanish. Easy for me to communicate in my native language. It was a very difficult case but she turned my almost lost case to a winning case. No words can express how happy and grateful I am to God who put Rochelle on my way. She is amazing! I would highly recommend her to anyone in the need of a Family lawyer.

Attorney Rochelle was my fourth attorney in a very long and difficult custody case. Having very complicated counterparts and child rep and judge mostly against, she was the only person willing to fight until the end for my child’s interests and mine. Her qualifications and professional ethics lead to a favorable resolution in a case I had lost all hope. The results were absolutely amazing, I got more than I ever thought possible. She is absolutely professional and committed, as well as honest and very straightforward. If it’s important, my first language is Spanish, hers is perfect. I’ll always be really thankful with Rochelle.

I don't think very many people like their divorce lawyers. I adored mine. She is honest, straightforward, extraordinarily organized, and just plain sharp. She is knowledgeable in the law. She obtained the optimal result, even when it seemed every odd was stacked against us, and she did so with the utmost professionalism. She was very understanding and compassionate when it came to my needs and those of my children, and she fought hard for those needs. I will forever be grateful.

Informative Professional
I reached out to Rochelle for a consultation. She was very informative of the law in Illinois and another state, where my spouse resides. She presented me with good strategies to approach. I would recommend her if you need an informative professional with good strategic approaches.

Would Recommend Again & Again
My wife and I retained Rochelle Turrisi to defend us in matters pertaining to post decree litigation. In short, we were being sued for college education costs during a time in our lives when we were experiencing financial hardship. Rochelle represented us in two pre-trial court appearances, during which time she was able to successfully litigate on our behalf resulting in the best deal possible in terms of an agreed order. From the start, Rochelle returned our emails and phone calls immediately. She always kept us informed as to the proceedings and corresponding steps that would need to be taken to move forward. Above all, Rochelle was extremely knowledgeable really fought hard for us. We knew at all times she had only our best interest in mind. Months after attaining an agreed order, Rochelle still took the time to follow up and check in on us to make sure we were not having any difficulties carrying out the terms of the order. We will not hesitate to retain Rochelle again if was the best move we ever made!
