Very helpful with all my concerns. Trustworthy and took time in answering and advising me.

I have dealt with Shay and Associates twice now. He was highly recommended to me by a friend for a workman's compensation claim case several years ago, and more recently for the wrongful death of my husband. In both cases, Mr. Shay and his Decatur staff were very professional and understanding. Any and all of my questions were quickly answered, and I was kept informed of every step of the process. Though I hope I won't need legal services in the future, if I would, Shay and Associates will be my first phone call. Jeanie Logue

I hired Tim Shay on my mothers be half. She had been in awful car accident! Rear ended by a distracted driver at 55 MPH. She suffered life threatening injuries at the scene, but with the help of first responders she was air lifted to Carl trauma center in Champaign, IL. She spent 9 months being shifted from one hospital to the next. Tim visited her in person just to see first hand how she was doing. Unfortunately my mother succumb to her injuries. I would just like to express my gratitude to Tim, and all of his helpful staff!! Tim made us feel like we really had someone are our side. Tim, and his staff went above & beyond what ever could of been expected! I myself felt like I built somewhat of a friendship with Tim. Thanks again for being an honest caring person through out this awful time. Can't say enough good things! Steve Mattingly

Steve was great to work with on my personal injury case. He was very knowledgeable, personable and a pleasure to work with during a difficult situation. Steve and Pete also provided me with legal direction and recommendation on a separate issue. I highly recommend them and truly appreciate the guidance and help they provided!

Peter Beard and his staff worked diligently to ensure I received what I consider to be a fair settlement. Peter was very good about providing frequent case updates and patiently explaining in great detail the how's and why's each time I had a question. This was my first experience with having to hire an attorney; I was quite pleased with the professionalism and client-focused attentiveness exhibited by Peter and his staff. Should I require legal representation in the future, my first phone call will be to the law firm of Holly, Rosen, & Beard.

I had a personal injury case and felt that my case was handled very professionally and I was provided great service. Mr. Rosen worked diligently to assure all information from all parties provided was accurate and that I received a fair settlement. This is a great place to go if you have a case and want things done accurately, professionally and in a prompt manner. Thanks for your service!

Peter Beard is very good. He helped me get full reinstatement.

Pete Beard handled my case with the upmost excellence. He was up to date on current changes in Illinois law and best approaches to my specific case. He presented me with different strategies and plans of attack in resolving my issue, all the while giving me the pros and cons to each choice and why he thought a particular approach would be the best. In addition to keeping me "in the know" about the various legal mechanics of the issue, Pete also knew the majority of the people that would be appraising, reviewing, and judging my case. The insight he had on how particular individuals would interpret and react to our presentation was stunning and certainly a benefit that couldn't be gained anywhere else. In my situation, I had numerous third parties that needed to be contacted and negotiated with. I never had a hard time getting a hold of Mr.Beard, getting paperwork, or wait for a update on my case. And I've got to mention, Holley, Rosen and Beard's support staff were of equal quality. Always friendly, knowledgeable and sharp. It was an instant relief from the moment I started dealing with their firm - a feeling which persisted from A to Z. I cannot tell you how relieved I am to have followed my colleague's recommendation to put them in my corner. If you have anything close to a complicated/severe situation (or a simple one that you just want the optimal resolution for), you gotta go with these guys. I don't usually write reviews but for the service I received they could easily quadruple their rates and they're currently a STEAL as they remain very competitive with the local market. You'd be shooting yourself in the foot not use these guys. I'll never be able to thank them enough.

Without our brilliant attorney Jeff I would not have won my case in under one year! I really appreciate the concern, courtesy and professionalism of the entire office. Thank you so much!

Very quick with my case. Very straight forward. Listen to my requests and followed through with communication.

Larry and his team did a wonderful job handling my claim. They really cared about my situation and I appreciate everything they've done for me.

Always friendly and prompt responses.

Male attorney listened to what my wife's medical problems were and what she could do about the doctors who performed the procedure. Once she said that is was a SIU doctor, he said that he couldn't help her and to live with it.

Beyond impressive! Matt and his team are fantastic to work with! They definitely go above and beyond! Would recommend them hands down!

I hired the Nessler firm several months ago to settle a injury from a car accident. After 3 months of no progress I removed them from my case . When I spoke with a paralegal about my case and she said she hasn't done any follow up on my case I had had enough .

Matt Kennedy was the attorney I had for my workers comp case and he was excellent, thorough and very easy to work with! In the beginning the only reason I even looked for an attorney was because my company and their insurance company took over 5 months to "let" me go to physical therapy. Matt was able to get the ball rolling and also let me know that I was entitled to a settlement and could pick my own place of therapy. His assistant Teagan was also very helpful and had the task of dealing with me and my busy schedule traveling the country. I would DEFINITELY recommend their office to anyone needing legal counsel.

I found myself needing representation after an accident at work. After thoroughly searching and reading reviews online, I made the decision to go with Nessler and Associates. Best decision I made! My attorney was Matt Kennedy. Even after all the hoopla with the insurance company, back and forthing etc, he delivered. Him and his assistant, Teagan, were great! Im very happy with how things turned out. Id give 100 stars if I could. If you yourself are seeking legal cousel, I highly recommend them.

Professional. Pleasant. Good work at good prices.

They explain things in a manner that is easily understood and they take the time to answer any and all questions even if you have alot of them. they care about you as a person and fight hard to get what you deserve. the staff are kind, helpful & respectful .I was there with my 18 yr old daughter & she felt comfortable talking about her car accident & was very grateful for the help she received.

I would highly recommend Mr. Shay! He did an awesome job defending getting my case and I'm very satisfied with the resolution.

He’s a very good attorney I would recommend him to anybody

I was referred to Tim Shay by another attorney that said he handled difficult cases such as mine and that he was the best. I first met Tim in 2011 when I developed kidney problems. I worked for a chemical company which cause my health issues due to exposures. Several other people I worked with had health problems as well. These cases are difficult to prove and nobody will help you for fear of retaliation, that the company will fire them or reprimand them for saying anything. Tim and his team went right to work for myself and others. I could not ask for a better representative. He and his team did a great job and definitely care about their clients. So if you are looking for a great attorney and a nice guy who is straight forward and honest, he is the man that you want on your side. GG

My family went to Dodds Law Office 4 years ago for advice after our father was in a horrific motorcycle accident that paralyzed him from his sternum down. Terry and his staff were amazing when it came to taking initiative and offering advice about our options and services he could provide our family in this time of need. Terry fought diligently and in a timely manner when it came time to research the accident and what he could do for our father. He hired investigators, partake in depositions, and used his colleagues to best serve us. He was able to make a case that may look common or one sided and find details missed and overlooked by defense attorneys and detectives that had worked the case. He was able to put together a winning case outside the court room that gave my father the piece of mind and the ability to live a life he deserved after his accident. Terry took his personal time and has made trips to our house to speak on the case and make sure my father is satisfied in all his decisions and talk through any questions we had as a family. He gave us the piece of mind that we needed after such a horrific event can take place and help put the pieces together to give us all piece of mind. Terry is very punctual and worked very hard to do his due diligence to make sure he got what we felt as a team my father deserved. I have never seen someone work so hard and patiently to get a resolution that satisfies all. We recommend Terry to anyone who is in need of a personal injury attorney. Terry will take his time and do everything he can to assist in preserving justice for you and your family

Mr. Dodds really knows what he is doing. He works hard for results and is not satisfied until he sees them. With his work, I was able to get my case dismissed which is a huge weight off my shoulders! AAA++ job!

Mr. Dodds represented me for a DUI charge against me that happened last year. My license was suspended because I refused to go to the hospital with the officer and submit to a blood and/or urine test, because I had not been drinking. I sought Mr. Dodds help with this case, and he took the case, and through a series of court hearings that were rather short, but unfair, I let him know that I wanted a trial for this case. The odds were against me because it seemed that the system wanted to find me guilty for something I had not done and make an example of me. We eventually got the trial this year, about a month ago, and it took 2 days in the court room, but Mr. Dodds won my case, and that charge was dropped. I was found innocent of the DUI charge against me, thanks to Mr. Terry Dodds. I am so grateful to him. He is really an excellent lawyer, and if you need help, whether it's an injury case or a traffic case, etc., the Dodds Law Office is the place to go, and Terry Dodds is the man you want representing you. In fact, I have retained him to represent me in a work-related injury claim, and he has done an amazing job of getting me the compensation I deserve. Thank you, Terry. ~ "Tony" Ahmed

Terry Dodds was recommended to me by a friend and I hired him to represent me. He was helpful in explaining available options and providing recommendations. He was ultimately able to negotiate and deliver a successful outcome. I do recommend him and would return for future assistance should a need arise.

I retained Terry's services several years ago. I will continue to recommend his services to anyone that is in need of a great attorney! Thank you for all that you did for me!

He was able to make a case that may look common or one sided and find details missed and overlooked by defense attorneys and detectives that had worked the case. He was able to put together a winning case outside the court room that gave my father the piece of mind and the ability to live a life he deserved after his accident. Terry took his personal time and has made trips to our house to speak on the case and make sure my father is satisfied in all his decisions and talk through any questions we had as a family. He gave us the piece of mind that we needed after such a horrific event can take place and help put the pieces together to give us all piece of mind. Terry is very punctual and worked very hard to do his due diligence to make sure he got what we felt as a team my father deserved. I have never seen someone work so hard and patiently to get a resolution that satisfies all. We recommend Terry to anyone who is in need of a personal injury attorney. Terry will take his time and do everything he can to assist in preserving justice for you and your family

    Mr. Dodds really knows what he is doing. He works hard for results and is not satisfied until he sees them. With his work, I was able to get my case dismissed which is a huge weight off my shoulders! AAA++ job!

    Mr. Dodds represented me for a DUI charge against me that happened last year. My license was suspended because I refused to go to the hospital with the officer and submit to a blood and/or urine test, because I had not been drinking. I sought Mr. Dodds help with this case, and he took the case, and through a series of court hearings that were rather short, but unfair, I let him know that I wanted a trial for this case. The odds were against me because it seemed that the system wanted to find me guilty for something I had not done and make an example of me. We eventually got the trial this year, about a month ago, and it took 2 days in the court room, but Mr. Dodds won my case, and that charge was dropped. I was found innocent of the DUI charge against me, thanks to Mr. Terry Dodds. I am so grateful to him. He is really an excellent lawyer, and if you need help, whether it's an injury case or a traffic case, etc., the Dodds Law Office is the place to go, and Terry Dodds is the man you want representing you. In fact, I have retained him to represent me in a work-related injury claim, and he has done an amazing job of getting me the compensation I deserve. Thank you, Terry. ~ "Tony" Ahmed

    Terry Dodds was recommended to me by a friend and I hired him to represent me. He was helpful in explaining available options and providing recommendations. He was ultimately able to negotiate and deliver a successful outcome. I do recommend him and would return for future assistance should a need arise.

After 30 years with the firm, I still love helping people. A sincere thank you to the thousands of clients that have entrusted their claims to our team.

Thank-you Kanoski Bresney Attorneys Office for their blessings of the great job they did for my case!!!!????????????????????!!! Especially great office lady's and my attorney out of Bloomington ,IL Thanks God's Blessings ????????

They took all my info and informed me of a SLD.it was too close. Said I'd need a pro witness, sought one , then they tell me when it's too late that a professional witness isn't a pro who will confirm your delema but a pro witness is one who just works for trial evidence. Then with only days befor SLD they give me a # in Springfield to call and she tells me of other options of reporting complaint . And also that it's too late. So I did a lot of contact work myself stressed out big time and got nothing but more Dr Bill's. I had 3 more months till 2nd surgery SLD they didnt offer anything.

Larry was informative, knowledgeable, and consistently available to me through the entire process. I would highly recommend his guidance.

Thanks did excellent job for me on my case I really appreciate it very much Bill and staff ????????️????????????????️????????????????????????????

He a good down to earth person

Really good lawyer. He worked hard for my case and got everything I asked for. Someone said he took more money than he said he would but that is not true, I had him and he took what he was supposed too. RECOMMEND him for anyone looking for a good lawyer that will get you what you want.

Great lawyer!

Was only suppose to take 1/3 of the amount that was COLLECTED. He took way over half and counted $$ that were NOT guaranteed. Yet he added that amount included that wasn't guaranteed and that $$ amount wasn't paid by the hospital and Medicare yet he kept that money for himself. For him to get more money back then what we got about a hundred dollars more then us so that is OVER HALF he took. We were told there are no good lawyers in town of Pekin and now we end up believing it we got one ck for $8300.00 and he the lawyer got over $8400. We are calling the BBB plus Illinois Bar assoc. On this.plus there was another ck that was for $7300 he only gave me about $2300 Out of OVER $7300.00 and he kept the rest of that ck. So total its way over 1/3 of the amount HE recd. On BOTH CKS. He was rude and always too busy to take the time to actually talk to us and explain things better. Which there is no explanation why on 2 separate cks he got way more then me with both cks when his cut was suppose to be a 1/3 . Yet he got quite a bit more than me so basically he took WAY more the 1/2 with both cks.Dale also told us that THE CK OVER $7300 Was our $$ bc the INS. CO ENDED UP PAYING THE BILL THAT MEDICARE ENDED PAYING BACK. HE EVEN HAD IT SIT ASIDE IN AN ACCOUNT. DALE THOMAS IS NOT RECOMMENDED IN OUR OPINION OR EXPERIENCE AND FEEL HE TOOK FULL ADVANTAGE OF US. COCKY ATTITUDE AND CUTS U OFF WHEN I ASK ANY ?'S ETC. WOULD GIVE LESS THEN ONE STAR BUT NOT GIVEN THAT OPTION. PERIOD. BRANDON SARFF IS NO BETTER EITHER IN PEKIN AS WELL. IF IT WASN'T FOR CLIENTS THEY WOULD NOT HAVE ANY CLIENTS AND DOING OTHER WORK. OH MY BF WENT DOWN THERE TO GET COPY OF HIS STUFF AND DALE AND HIS SECRETARY WERE RUDE TO HIM FOR WANTING HIS RECORDS AND WANTED TO TALK TO ME BC I LEFT A BAD REVIEW AND TOLD ME TO TAKE THE REVIEW OFF. I WILL NOT TAKE THIS REVIEW OFF WHEN HE CUTS U OFF NEVER HAS TIME TO EXPLAIN THINGS AND NOW HIS SECRETARY IS RUDE BC I LEFT A BAD REVIEW AND WANTED ME TO CHANGE OR TAKE THIS REVIEW DOWN. NOT GONNA BE HARRASSED BY THEM BC I LEFT A BAD REVIEW. IF HE WOULD OF EXPLAINED THINGS AND NOT CUT US OFF AND RUDE BC WE WANT ANOTHER LAWYER TO REVIEW THINGS TO MAKE SURE THINGS WERE DONE CORRECTLY SINCE HIS OFFICE WOULDN'T TAKE THE TIME TO EXPLAIN. NO REASON TO BE RUDE TO MY BF WHEN CLIENT IS PAYING THERE WAGES AND CAN'T EXCEPT A BAD REVIEW. I GUESS THEY WANTED ME TO COME INSIDE WASN'T GONNA HAPPEN. THEY KNEW I WAS IN VEHICLE OUTSIDE AND DIDN'T COME OUT EVEN IF THEY HAD NOT GONNA TAKE THIS DOWN. TRY TO BE NICER AND TAKE TIME TO EXPLAIN THINGS NOT BE RUDE TO THEM. JUST MAKING SURE THE $ ARE RIGHT AS WELL BC HIS INS CAR INS PAID ON MEDICAL AS WELL. NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING ANOTHER LAWYER LOOK AT THINGS. LIKE I SAID IF WOULD OF TAKEN THE TIME AND NOT CUT U OFF AND BE RUDE NOW PLUS HIS SECRETARY WAS RUDE BC BAD REVIEW. NOT GONNA BE HARRASSED BC HAD BAD EXPERIENCE WITH U AND UR OFFICE BC OF A BAD VIEW.
