I hired Chuck to represent me in a case where a contractor incorrectly installed a new sewer line, causing many thousands of dollars worth of damage to my house. The insurance company did not seem to want to go against Chuck in court. He was able to extract vital evidence from a third party that prompted a quick settlement offer from the insurance company. The whole thing took less than three months. A+ in my book!

Chuck Devens has represented me twice and both times has been very professional and easy to work with. He's very knowledgeable and upfront about what will happen next. He and his staff have been absolutely wonderful to work with, I can't imagine going anywhere else.

I got injured on the job and didn't know where to turn. I researched Workman Comp attorneys and found Chuck Devens name. I sent an email to him on a Saturday morning and didn't expect to hear anything from him for a few days, but was pleasantly surprised when he emailed me back within hours. I set up an appointment and met with him a few days later.
Chuck was very knowledgeable (he wrote the book on Workman's Comp for IL) and shared this with me. He was honest and upfront from day one. Whenever he ran into a delay or small problem, I was always apprised of the situation, be it email or phone contact.
He always kept me abreast of my case and what to expect for a settlement and why I would get the amount, so that there were no false hopes or expectations from me. He was fair all the way around.
If you're looking for an honest and very intelligent attorney that will go to bat for you, and someone with a great sense of humor, then Chuck Devens is that man.
