She’s the best or the best!!
Attorney Longe was absolutely amazing!! I highly recommend her and have referred her to a friend of mine already. I got a DUI for the first time and of course was scared and thought my life was over or on pause at least. I contacted Attorney Longe and had an appointment with her the same week. She put my mind at eased with her honesty, care, and game plan even before any paper work to retain was signed. Every through Covid she was always early to court, prepared, and her professionalism was unmatched. My case was DISMISSED before we went to trial! Words will never express my gratitude for her saving my life! But, I will keep referring anyone that needs her services as a small token of my appreciation!! Thank you so much for everything Attorney Longe!!

I endorse this law firm , The Longe Law is a highly respected and valued member of the legal community in Chicago. She has a vast network of the system in a variety of industries including health, tech and financial .And the one time we actually had to go to court - most matters were settled early or outside of court (in the city of Chicago ) - the judge granted her demand in motion because she knew the defense made sense of things.

DUI/Suspended License
Attorney Gbenga is the BEST at what she does including affordable as well, I never would expect that I would have my License back within 30days of my arrest. This was a unbelievable experience for me she was very respectful and knew what she had to do from the start. An everything she said would happen/happened. My case was dismissed due to the GREAT knowledge of the law an services she provided, I recommend Attorney Gbenga to anyone that has these issues or is uncertain on what to do or who to hire.. Gbenga is excellent at what she does which I believe might be the best throughout South Suburban area… Contact Attorney Gbenga she will get it done

Can’t recommend enough
I was able to get my license back and found not guilty in my DUI case. Very knowledgeable of the specifics pertaining to my case. Diligently reviewed facts and details of my situation. I felt comfortable and confident in my choice of lawyer. Judge ended trial saying I had a very good lawyer.

A real person
I had a complex problem and after calling I was speaking with the person I was actually reach and she helped with explaining the problem as well as paths to take to get it resolved. She even called ME back to help me out even knowing I wasn’t going to be a client. The least I can do to repay her is drop an honest review.

Excellent representation
Gbenga represented me. It was my first time having to go through the court process. She was very helpful, and great at explaining what my options were, what was happening, and how things were going to go in court. She fought for me and helped me out tremendously during a time of need. I highly recommend her for anyone needing representation.

expired registration and insurance
i retained gbenga for expired registration and insurance charges. her demeanor was calming, professional and incredibly pleasant. her fees were also less than several attorneys i had contacted though her selection was not based on price. the prosecutor was initially reluctant to drop all charges however she aggressively fought for us and had the entire case dismissed. i highly recommend her services.

Earnest Worker
Attorney Longe was retained as my real estate attorney and had my best interest from start to finish. Her diligence and effort proved to be beneficial and comforting, especially for a first time home buyer such as myself. She was very professional and acquiesced to all parties involved while still showing a level of fortitude that is rare. Thank you!

A very appreciative client.
I am not much of a writer but, I promised to post a comment or write a review. My lawyer looked over my case, contacted the prosecuting attorney and discussed the best possible way to lesson or dismiss my charges. I had a operating a motor vehicle while on a suspended license, or something of the sort, however it is written. She contacted me and told me that she'd spoken to the prosecution and that she have a number of options to discuss on how I would like to proceed further with my case. I was undecided after she explained all the options, after a brief moment of silence, I asked her which one did she think would be the best one and she told me which one she thought. Personally I disagreed with them all, but I followed her advice and ended up being very, VERY happy with the end results!!!! I would definitely recommend this lawyer to anyone I know including family, friends, co-workers, church family members etc.. Also I had been talking to other lawyers before deciding to go with her. I chose her because she explained my case to me "in the light at the end of the tunnel" it was a burden on my mind and I looked at it as ole IL. State gangsters collecting protection and privileges fees. OK lastly (sigh) one thing that made me a bit irritable was that while talking with her, she is very soft spoken, but that's not really a negative. I had to ask her several times to speak up or would you repeat that. I work in a very high decibel environment, so my ears may be going bad. This is the end of my review and it is totally honest and I hope that it helps her in her cause, because she did definitely helped me. Thank again Ms. Longe

"I was lucky to have met Gbenga when she was working as an ASA and I was defense counsel. Working with her in that capacity was always a pleasure. She was courteous, respectful and it was evident that she had a firm grasp of the law. Working with her now in private practice has been just as rewarding. I often rely on her legal insight, knowledge, and skill on numerous occasions in Criminal Defense cases. Her communication and litigation skills provide clients with the best possible representation. She is confident, experienced, knowledgeable and effective as an attorney. A rarity in our profession. I have referred clients to her and will continue to do so without hesitation."
