Above and beyond
Janice and her team were kind, understanding, patient, accommodating, and worked their best for me. She fought for me unlike another other professional in this situation has and if something comes up again, I’m going to her without a doubt. She got me and my son to a safe place and I will be forever grateful.

Highly recommend
Janice came highly recommended as a divorce attorney. Janice and her team were very responsive and thorough with all communication. She is compassionate, understanding, and detailed. Although this was a messy, complicated divorce, Janice fought for me and got the job done. I cannot recommend her enough!

Great Experience with Real Estate Sale
I closed on the sale of my condo in the city and needed someone last minute to help with the closing. Just a couple days after enlisting the help of Janice Berman's team, I had a full review of the closing contract and a response over to the buyer. Throughout my closing there were a few awkward requests from the buyer, which Janice Berman's team was able to tackle and take care of no matter how many iterations it took with the buyer. I highly recommend Janice Berman's team for your real estate transactions.

Excellent attention to detail and straight to the point
Janice was excellent at reviewing my post divorce issues that kept arising. I wish I would have found her at the very beginning of my 3 year ordeal. She tells it like it is, gives you options, and is extremely confident. She was a breath of fresh air in my case and truly made me feel like she understood what I was going through. She was able to stop the nonsense in my life. I recommend her to any Father going through a divorce in the state of IL!

Divorce attorney
Janice worked tirelessly to advocate for my wishes in my divorce. While it was a long process she persevered and I am very happy with the outcome. She was a good balance of being tough and also a good negotiator. She communicated well with me throughout the process.

Highly recommended - very thorough, upfront and helpful staff
Janice explained the divorce process and what costs to expect up front so I knew exactly what was coming and what to prepare. Her staff was a pleasure to work with. They were very professional and cordial all throughout the process. They answered all my questions and eased all my concerns. I highly recommend Janice and her team.

Straightforward, Honest & Experienced Attorney
Janice was a great attorney throughout the process. My divorce was not a quick or easy one to get through based on the lack of cooperation from the opposite side, but Janice's advice and honest, open feedback was very much appreciated during the time she represented me. I highly recommend Janice and her team if you're ever in need. I have already referred a friend and her expertise and direction helped for a quick, positive outcome for them as well.

Overall services delivered
Janice was the best ever, I wasn’t a typical divorcee. 61 year old (male) at the time of divorce. Grown kids, professional making good money and owned a house outright. Thought I’d lose my pension, my house, my car, and pay “alimony” to the wife for the rest of my life. None of that happened. An angel brought her to me. I owe her my new life. She’s also very reasonable with her fees. Divorce is a horrible process that you evolve through. I was married for 36 years. Took a year and a half to get through and a lot of anger to put behind me. She gets it all. Be patient, be patient, be patient Janice will get you through it. Shop your attorneys,... then hire Janice.

Excellent service!
Divorce is never easy. Atty Berman made the process as stress-free as possible and handled my case promptly. Atty Berman and her legal assistant Shirley treated me with kindness, dignity and respect. Despite court closings due to COVID, Atty Berman was able to complete my divorce with the court virtually. I highly recommend Atty Berman. Her expertise and client care is top notch.

NO REGRETS - MY BEST CHOICE & GOD'S WILL
From the very start, I didn't feel any pressure from the Law Office of Janice Berman. She and her Secretary Shirley and other Legal Assistant Laurie are like Family to each other and to their Client on a Professional Level. Rest assured, for an affordable initial consultation fee you can be confident and trust that the honest guidance/advice you are getting are protective of your own best interest. Attorney Janice Berman is exceptionally brilliant and covered all Issues that we wanted to achieve accordingly in our Uncontested Divorce of a lengthy duration of loveless Marriage. She even allowed me to use their Office and her Mobile Phone when there was a problem linking on mine for the remote video-conferencing prove-up in the COVID-19 situation, proceeding with their All-Out support in-person in a very private setting which I am very appreciative of. Such an EXCELLENT SERVICE with COMPASSION!! I am also very grateful to Judge Reynolds who approved our Case and JUSTICE was truly served!!!

Seamless and efficient
Janice was very easy to work with, and the process could not have been easier. It only took a month to go from consultation to finalization. Communication was promptly answered and the office staff was exceedingly warm and friendly.

DIVORCE CASE
I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Janice went above and beyond and did everything she could to ensure a great outcome. Thank you Very much for the great Service and attention on my case .

Great job
Janice did a great job handling my divorce case. She helped me to understand the process and what I needed to do with the house, as well as a time frame as to when things needed to be accomplished. Her secretary Shirley was also extremely helpful. My appreciation to them both.

Best Lawyer Ever!!
I hired Janice Berman in December of 2018 after getting nowhere with my previous lawyer who I had on retainer for four and a half years. He advertises himself as being “ An Affordable Divorce Lawyer”. A coworker recommended her services after she got her divorce finalized in a little over three months. I met with Janice and explained my situation. She took all my information and proceeded to work on my case. After much back and forth with opposing counsel she was able to make more progress in the short time since I started this back in 2014. In May 2019 I was granted my divorce and I owe it all to Janice! She is organized, knows her way around the legal system and takes her job serious with heart. Her staff Shirley and Laurie are top notch! Both were helpful and informative. Whenever I would call in with a question I got an answer immediately. I recommend that ANYONE looking for an experienced attorney that will do what they say call Janice NOW! She has My Five Stars only because I can’t put 10 stars and two thumbs up!!
