I was a former client of Ilene Aguilar
Ilene provided my services for my divorce. She was efficient and always available when I needed to consult and/or make an appointment. Ilene was also very knowledgeable of my circumstance and provide the help and support I needed to get my divorce finalized. I would highly recommend Ilene she is very professional and competent.

Legal Name Change
My attorney Ilene Aguilar was hired by me to to legally change my name back from my married name to my maiden name. She was very professional and assured me she would make it an easy process for me. I presented her with proof of divorce and I answered the pertinent questions required by her, she took care of filing the forms with the court and I soon received certification the change was now legal. I have and will continue to refer Ilene Aguilar Esq.., to those who need reliable, professional, legal assistance.

Excellent service
I was referred to Ilene by my client and friend after having a previous lawyer that NEVER would get back to me in any shape way or form of phone calls and emails. I contacted Ilene with my child custody case and I had a LOT of questions and concerns. She answers all my questions and concerns beyond thoroughly. Ilene always responded and still responds to any questions I have in a superb timely manner. I felt like my case and I as a client were cared for in a genuinely manner. Through all the back in for in my case I couldn't have picked a better lawyer. Amazing customer service and amazing services! I refer all my aquantainces and will continue doing so.

Right's of a Mother
My case was difficult, I felt my rights as a mother were being affected. My case involved Grandparent right's it was my deceased husbands mother fighting for my children. This wasn't an easy road... I found Attorney Ilene online and I took a chance. I couldn't be more happier of the out come. She told me my case was going to take time and it was going to be a fight. She was very very honest not leaving out any details and suggested to me information that could help me in the long run. When ever I needed her she was there, even on the weekends which just shows how much she cares. I am so thankful to her and her staff for all their hard work. As a mother you want the best for your children and will fight till the end especially when your children are in danger, and with the help of Attorney Ilene and H Bui Law Firm I did just that. My family and I are moving forward stress free.

Living Trust
Ms. Aguilar was and continues to be helpful, considerate, attentive, sincere and trustworthy. She ensured all documents were complete and ensured appropriate filling. When I unexpectedly found myself as a single mother I realized I needed to ensure my child would be taken care if I passed. At my side, Ms. Aguilar helped me ensure my child would be taken care of by drafting my living trust. To this day I appreciate her professionalism and the safe environment she provided in her office. Her ethical and nondiscriminatory practices make referring her a pleasure.

Wonderful Family Law Attorney
Ilene is always a pleasure to work with. She has helped us so many times when we thought we were at the end of our rope. She always keeps us informed and is willing to go the extra mile. She tells us the truth, whether we like it or not. We will continue to call Ilene when we need help.

I had already started the divorce process and needed someone to come and finish what I couldn't do. When I called Ilene she was able to fit me in during my lunch time. Which was great. Other lawyers that I called weren't doing that I had to fit around them. Not good for someone that works 8-5. She understood that I have a job and kids that need me and that my job was very demanding I loved that about her. She took my case and dug through the mess of paper work that I had and asked me what I wanted. Given the situation I was in she was able to help me finish my divorce that was on going for 4 years and she was able to get me divorced in my next court date. Thank you for that Ilene it was like the world was lifted off my shoulders. What I really liked about her was that she keep me informed and I keep her informed of the child custody and what I needed to keep track of not only that but any little thing I could do my self she would tell me so that I too was involved in my divorce.

I've been working with Mrs. Aquilar for about a year now and words aren't enough to describe it. Any time I had questions or concerns about my child's case she always got back to me. She keeps me informed about our next step and explains what is going on at the time. My case is over now but my daughter safe and with me.We are truly grateful and happy to have her in our lives.To parents with concerns and issue.I believe she is the best one to represent you .
