Custody cases for single fathers are challenging in the best of circumstances, and for a single father like me seeking sole custody it can seem nearly impossible to follow through. I sought out Attorney Zuba on the recommendation of a respected friend who had not only been a client of his, but was also very knowledgable of top lawyers in the area. I was very glad I did.
Attorney Zuba was calm, understanding, and professional from the initial consultation to the rendering of the final verdict. He kept me informed throughout the process, always responded quickly to my calls or emails, and eased my nerves before entering court each time. Realistic expectations for each phase of the process were set for me, and they were always met or exceeded. During the early stages of the case Attorney Zuba showed he was knowledgable and confident in the courtroom, and was clearly respected by opposing counsel, guardian ad litem, and judge. In the later stages, when witnesses were called, his skill as a litigator was very clear and I was impressed with his ability to turn each testimony on both sides to the advantage of my case. He fought vigorously for me, and defended me fiercely when false allegations were made during testimony. In the end, I was rightfully awarded sole custody.
I believe whole-heartedly that it is important to research your specific needs when choosing an attorney, but I cannot imagine one finding someone better in Winnebago County to represent them than Attorney James Zuba.

I was very happy with how well attorney Zuba did in my case. It's such a long, drawn out and frustrating process, but working with him made it a lot easier. I would go back, and I would highly recommend him. Thank you Mr. Zuba!
