My husband decided to end our marriage after 34 years together. We had a business together and many assets, but he had run everything and I was in the dark on our finances. I am so lucky I found Susan to help me. She stood by me and worked so hard to find all the property and assets which the judge needed to know about. We went to trial in our case and Susan submitted writings that were very convincing to the judge. She was so pursuasive as she presented my case. I ended up with a great result even though I did not want a divorce and I would highly recommend Susan Butler to any one who needs a great and caring lawyer for their divorce.

I recently used Susan for some custody changes. She was timely with responses and filings, had reasonable fees, and her experience was obvious. She advised me of expected reasonable outcomes and was willing to push for items important to me. I would absolutely recommend her and use her again in the future.

I hired Susan to be my counsel when i bought a house that was for sale by owner. The work put in by her and her staff greatly streamlined the closing process. Everything was squared away and in order and we were in and out in no time! I definitely recommend her!

Susan and her support staff did an outstanding job representing me in a difficult divorce case. Her expertise, experience, high integrity, and guidance during the 14 month process was invaluable and allowed us to reach a fair agreement with my now ex-spouse. I highly recommend her services if you are facing the difficult decision of ending a marriage, especially if you have children involved. Thank you again Susan for all you efforts and results!

I changed attorneys because my previous one was pessimistic about winning child custody. Thank God I found Susan Butler. She was recommended by a paralegal in another Peoria office , and she and her paralegals handled my case all the way through a two day trial. Her brilliance in the courtroom showed me what a true professional can do who believes in her client. Last year I again asked Susan to handle some retirement paperwork which required an attorney. Although Susan did not personally handle this case, the results were the same: excellent.

Susan Butler and her staff are very caring, compassionate and trustworthy! Susan's knowledge about divorce law was very comforting to me in such a stressful time in my life - the end of a 30 year marriage! She and her staff were always quick to respond to any questions and concerns of mine! Susan was very professional, yet very friendly, open and easy to talk to about many of the concerns I had during my divorce proceedings! She negotiated a very fair settlement! She is a very strong lawyer with the facts about the law to back it up! I appreciated that she was willing to give me the facts about the the law and did not leave me with any doubts or false hopes in my case! I would not hesitate to hire her again, and I would highly recommend Susan to anyone who needs a divorce or family law attorney! She is an amazing woman and does an excellent job! Susan and her staff receive an EXCELLENT RATING from this very satisfied client!

Susan Butler was a true god send. My ex wife had custody of our children and hopped from guy to guy and all different locations. My child support was spent on her habits. Then one day she said she is going to marry some guy she new twenty some years ago and move over three hundred miles away. She claimed there was nothing I could do about it. She took my kids and left to be with their new dad. I didn't know what to do so I took my case to Susan Butler. Susan listened and took notes in an amazing fashion because she told me everything I told her word for word after I talked. That was impressive because I was freaked out at the time and talking real fast. Then Susan told me what to do and what she was going to do. I didn't have to do much other then come up with character witnesses. Susan first got my kids to me through the court, interviewed witnesses and family, and fight my case in court. We had a tough fight because my ex's lawyer was playing the fact that my ex was a woman and my kids were two girls that need their mom. Susan fought the good fight and proved instability. We won but even if we had lost I would have still been impressed by Susan's efforts. Susan gave a very impressionable sense of care towards me and my girls who were scared through the battle because they had time with me where they saw structure. It was an amazing win because I am now a single father who has his kids living with him. That is almost unheard of. I have had my girls living with me for five years now and it is a dream come true. We celebrate the day they came to live hear with a vacation every year. It was Florida last year for our vacation. Every other day is like a dream. I look back at the struggle and thank God everyday that I saw Susan Butler's phone number and gave her a shot at helping me. I don't know how it all worked out but my only understanding is that there actually are good lawyers with ethics out there.

I would recommend Susan Butler to represent you in any family law issue. Susan is professional, compassionate and is dedicated to her profession. Susan did not sugar coat anything during my case. She provided me the answers to my case that a knowledgable and experience attorney would know. Every male in the State of Illinois understands the laws of this State are one sided, yet Susan was able to negotiate a fair settlement for my family, allowing me to be a father to my children. I have yet to meet another Family Law Attorney that has the respect of Judges and fellow Attorneys. Again, I would highly recommend Susan Butler and her highly qualified staff to assist you in any of your family law issues.

I found Ms. Butler to be empathetic while remaining very professional. She handled my legal issue with expediency and at minimum financial expense. The issue was the last one to be taken care of from my divorce 18 years ago. I had worked with a different attorney for my divorce and wish now that I had gone to Ms. Butler back then. I believe that she would have made a very painful experience easier with her gracious manner and the legal proceedings would not have been as protracted. She is a true advocate for her clients. I highly recommend her.

Susan looked at every aspect of my case and helped me achieve my desired outcome plus some! She looked out for my best interests and respected my decisions. Susan looked at my situation as a person and not just another divorce case to process on paper. She gathered information about my 20 yr marriage, my children, and my needs to take on the future as a single parent. She helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life.
Her staff is wonderful as well! I could call the office and whoever answered knew my name. I have no complaints whatsoever and will definitely be requesting her expertise and assistance when future needs arise!
