Kevin represented me in my child's custody case. Kevin has made so many avoidable mistakes, delays, and foibles, that I have filled multiple pages in a separate complaint.
During the time Kevin Linder represented me, he was consistently tardy to court, sometimes over an hour, filed a petition in the wrong court, failed to file a petition for sanctions, as he promised to do, missed an appointment that I flew in from out of state to attend, failed to obtain the address of my child's mother after she moved over two months ago, causing me lost time with my child and considerable expense, since I am traveling from out of state. Linder Law Office tried to file a petition for sanctions without a court order existing...
Kevin has way to much on his plate, as the previous review also accurately stated. He and his staff regularly do not return phone calls and emails. In addition, Kevin yelled and used profanity when I asked him to withdraw as my counsel.
Linder Law Office has had me fly from out of state only to sit at his office because of his inability to adhere to a schedule.
I have never has a worse experience with an attorney.

Mr Linder has to much on his plate. He did not spend enough time on my case. I paid him over $ 35k, and he still wants more. He failed to file a motion before court, wasting court time, attorney fees, and my time traveling nearly 900 miles round trip, not to mention losing everything the motion was to present. He told opposing counsel private conversations we had. Several times he had me come to his office an hour before a hearing, only to sit in his office alone doing nothing. Then go to the hearing and be presented a document I've never seen. Mr Linder has poor communication with his office employees. Many times office staff had more knowledge of my case than he. As a direct result of his inattention to detail and lack of concern for my case I have lost nearly everything. I haven't seen my kids now in over four years.

I hired Mr. Linder to handle my divorce as it involved my children. It was as easy and simple of a divorce that contained children could be. Prior to meeting with Mr. Linder my soon to be ex-wife and I sat down and agreed to absolutely everything and wrote it down. I presented it to Mr. Linder who only needed to prepare the documents for court following the information I presented him, and he failed miserably. The documents he gave me and my now ex to review had the wrong birthdate for my kids, the wrong kid visitation schedule and other items that were nowhere close to the information I gave him. This caused my ex to hire her own attorney as she thought I/he was trying to pull a fast one on her. Her attorney ended up redoing the entire Joint Parenting Agreement Mr. Linder failed to do properly.
Rather than a simple one and done court hearing, which it should have been, it was drug out to multiple court dates and went over the retainer (which he said during my initial meeting that he could complete the whole thing for or under) due to Mr. Linder’s poor lawyering ability, inattentiveness and disorganization. I have never experienced a “professional” service provided so poorly.

Two years ago I retained Kevin Linder to look into an increase of child support and to obtain an order for my ex to help our kids pay for college. To this day nothing has been done. He has failed to communicate with me in the last 9 months which forced me to file a complaint against him. In the last month he has misrepresented to the judge what he has done twice. I can not believe the judge did not do more. I WOULD NOT HIRE THIS ATTORNEY! Pay attention to the negative ratings as this may be your experience someday!

I hired Kevin LInder because my husband Michael was not being cooperative with the divorce and Kevin helped me in getting things done for my case and we actually settled this quickly. I would recommend Kevin to anyone that needs legal help. Both him and his staff are helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. They kept me informed, helped me and listened when I needed it. I will hire Kevin in the future if I need any legal work done. Thanks a lot, Jane W. Springfield, IL

In 1979 I caught my right arm in a corn auger and I was on disability for three years. I wanted to work. I got off of disability. I worked for 29 years and then I wore my left arm out. I filed for Socical Security Disability in January of 2011. I was denied at the initial and reconsideration levels. I knew that I needed a lawyer! I called two or three different lawyers and informed them of my situation. Finally, I contacted Kevin Linder. His staff was compassionate and confident. Kevin Linder reviewed my case and assisted me in filing my appeal for an Administrative Law Judge hearing. At the hearing Kevin Linder was knowledgeable and professional. He fought for my disability. He used my medical records to argue with the vocational expert that I was disabled according to the law and that there were no jobs that I could perform in the national economy. I was granted my disability benefits. Kevin Linder is not only professional he is down to earth and very approachable. Finally, someone I could talk to! I had some additional issues and Mr. Linder assisted me and talked directly with the Office of Hearing and Appeals. Anyone who need assistance should contact Kevin Linder immediatley. Don't wait to be denied twice like me.

After dealing with a couple other attorneys, I can say for certain Kevin Linder is a competent and compassionate attorney. Kevin and his staff helped me through filing chapter 7 Bankruptcy. They were there to answer questions I had about the process. Questions were answered thoroughly and in a timely manner. I was made to feel welcome each and every time I was in the office or on the phone. I appreciate Kevin and his staff going above and beyond in the customer service aspect of my case, as well as being able to complete the technical portion with a high level of accuracy. Not only would I highly recommend Kevin, I have recommended him to friends who are in need of an attorney in the Springfield area.

Attorney Linder has literally saved my life. I was in way over my head trying to represent myself against an Illinois attorney that works for the State. We were in a relationship and had a beautiful baby boy and was denied visitation for well over a year. I was being bullied in the court room and overwhelmed with paper work. This was all part of this persons master plan to drowned me in paper work so I didn’t see what was coming. When I first spoke with Attorney Linder he warned me that it wasn’t going to be easy but in the end the truth and justice will prevail and I would be able to see my son again.
I sat with my family and we made the decision to hire Attorney Linder and it was the best decision I have made. It took Attorney Linder and his expert staff a little while to untangle the massive mess I had gotten myself into but they did it. I have been seeing my son on a regular basis now and it is great. The battle is far from over due to the endless resources that my son’s mother has inside and outside the court room. I don’t worry near as much now that I have Attorney Linder on my side. His professionalism and knowledge of the courts and the law is impeccable. I would recommend Attorney Linder to anyone for their family law needs.

Kevin helped our family with a business bankruptcy and he was attentive, caring, prompt and knowledgeable. He helped us through court and the entire process, making it simple and understandable. Each time I called his office with questions, I received a quick response. Kevin is very professional and I would recommend him highly.
