Althoughy my ex-husband and I both no longer reside in the state of Illinois, Winnebago County retains jurisdiction over our divorce / child custody case from 2013. In the last two years (while living abroad) I have contacted DOZENS of lawyers in the Rockford area with my messy child custody case, which could turn into a potential custody battle. Trying to find quality legal representation in an area so far away - or even someone who was confident taking my rather complicated case - felt like searching for a needle in a haystack. I had no idea where to start, so relied heavily on google reviews (like everyone else!) to find the right lawyer for my needs. After hours of phone consultations, It took one phone call with Zuba & Associates to know I had the right attorneys for my case.
From the first phone consultation I had with Jim Zuba, I felt at ease - something I had NEVER felt in regards to my divorce/child custody case in Winnebago County. In an otherwise escalating and highly emotional, anxiety-provoking situation, I felt reassured, at ease and like I could finally hand someone else my legal mess-of-a-situation and THEY could TELL ME what I should do: what my rights, options, and best courses of action would be. Both he and Attorney Evans took the time to carefully explain things to me, were very professional and recommended courses of actions that felt both fair and that had mine and my children’s best interest in mind. The retainer and fees were fairly priced, and they worked with me on a payment plan once litigation began.
Zuba & Associates maintains an air of class, dignity and fairness in what happens got to be one of the messiest business one can be in: Family Law.
I have gotten everything I have sought out, because we have approached each and every issue with fairness, so that I am getting what I need/should and don’t feel like I had to play “dirty” to do it. That was important for me in my case. I also have never felt like I’ve been strung along or had suggestions made about what I could/should “go for” because launching an aggressive/messy legal battle would make THEM more money (one thing we are all wary about with lawyers!)
For this first time in over six years since my divorce, I have the representation I need and full confidence in my Attorney Zuba to represent me in a just, fair and classy manner, even when I am on the other side of the world. I have gotten so many wrongs righted and injustices set straight in court with the help of these attorneys. There is no price tag on the peace of mind that has brought me and my family.
I simply cannot rate/recommend them highly enough.
