The place to go in Peoria for your legal needs
Overall, I was very satisfied with the legal services that I received from Kamp. I was in a stressful time period in my life, and Kamp made going through this process very simple and easy for me. She is very respectful and all of my questions/concerns were answered very promptly. She seems to have the experience to know how to maneuver through the system seamlessly, so I was thankful that things were not drawn out unnecessarily. I would highly recommend her services for any needs.

Hardworking, diligence, competent and caring.
Caryn has been there every step of the way in my long drawn out divorce case, nothing to do with her. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a difficult custody/divorce case.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Honest, Detailed and Effective
After great research and other various friend or other referrals. I interviewed over 7 and hired two. I am very pleased with the effort, advice and outcome from Caryn Kamp in a very messy , lengthy, heated and emotional divorce legal process. I believe she did very well to the best possible result. Caryn is and was very knowledgeable on what was needed, including many details, that I am very thankful for her being on my side of the matter. Billing was fair. The services and documents were not cookie cutter basic templates (unlike I experienced with my first hire, a more known attorney.) She had the details, was calm, firm and yet understanding when was not. I admit, I can be cantankerous and not easy to deal with on average. I have since called and consulted her on other items to my satisfaction. I am very thankful that I can rely on her when needed. It was a very nice relief to trust her when betrayed and questioning who to trust.

Professional and informative
Caryn has assisted me in many legal situations. I have also had a chance to witness her with many other clients. She is always very clear and patient when explaining the legal process. Very knowledgeable,assertive and not afraid to fight for her clients.

Great Lawyer!
Caryn was very helpful with my case. She is very knowledgeable and explained things to me in a way I could understand. Her professionalism and integrity helped me to feel confident in hiring her. I would recommend hiring Caryn if you need a lawyer who will work hard for you to get the best possible results for you.

Caryn took on my case and jumped right in. She told me everything that I would expect and kept me informed of any changes in my case. She was there for me in the good times and in the bad. And when I wanted to just throw in the towel she kept me on track and advised me that it wouldn't be in my best interest.

Professional and intelligent
I would highly recommend Caryn Kamp to anyone needing legal assistance. She's knowledgeable and professional. Under the circumstances, she assisted in getting my case resolved efficiently and without headache.

Excellent Representation on Child Custody Matter
Caryn represented me on my child custody matter. She is a knowledgeable, professional, and aggressive attorney who had my back every step of the way in a case that was very contentious. She was able to negotiate a settlement that exceeded my original expectations and resulted in me having shared custody of my child on a 50% basis. I know, if I had not had Caryn fighting for me that the result could have been very different and I would have likely had to go through a very costly and stressful custody trial. I would recommend Caryn to anyone in search of an excellent attorney.
