We're a community not-for-profit that annually sponsors a "Jewish Law & Ethics Symposium", a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program, which includes a panel discussion featuring a judge, a lawyer and a rabbi, as they compare and contrast important legal and ethical principles as they appear in diverse legal systems. This year's topic was on family law. Knowing Jimmy Fendelman's keen mind and his warm and engaging personality, as well as his experience with family law, we immediately thought of him as the perfect moderator for this year's event, and he absolutely didn't disappoint! Jimmy kept the panelists and the lawyers in attendance fully engaged for the two-hour session. He created a lively to-and-fro conversation, asking probing questions and inserting well-timed and insightful comments that made the program not only extremely informative and enlightening, but also a great deal of fun!

Mission Accomplished
Jimmy did an excellent job for us recovering a debt. HIs tenacity, persistence, creativity and communications with us throughout the lengthy process was outstanding. His advice as to how best to successfully pursue collection was spot on. HIs professional reputation in court is well earned. Can't say enough good things about his effort on our behalf.

Excellent Attorney and Highly Recommended
I've had the chance to task Jimmy Fendelman and his team on a debt collection's case, where it was tremendously difficult to chase the debtor from past history and what seemed to be a near-impossible assignment to begin with. Jimmy and his team turned this around and were able to collect the entire balance! I was shocked to hear that, considering that other attorneys didn't had much/any success with this particular debtor. Jimmy is a smart and strategic lawyer, who is capable to understand complex scenarios to achieve the goal. I really appreciate him and his team's flexibility to reach out with any questions and their proactiveness to provide with frequent updates throughout the entire process. He is undoubtedly the best collections attorney you could find in town (or elsewhere for that matter). Thanks for all your help, Jimmy!

Smart, Aggressive, Unrelenting Effort for Clients
My Illinois atty and I chose Jimmy to pursue a hiding, deceptive debtor in Missouri. He had been hiding assets, moving money from bank to bank and throwing up roadblocks everywhere we turned. We hire Jimmy and in as short a time as possible we recovered all owed us including attorney's fees. Jimmy is the bulldog you need to go after tough recoveries. We will gladly use him again when necessary.

Highly Recommend Mr. Fendelman
I hired Mr. Fendelman and his team to do what I thought would be impossible, collecting on a Judgment amount that has been dodged/ignored for years. Mr. Fendelman and his paralegal, Molly, were amazing and they collected the entire balance in no time! Without a doubt, I would recommend him!
