Ms Allen is very detailed and organized. She answers questions in a timely manner. Also, she has answered questions after the divorce in a timely manner. I would recommend Ms Allen.
Kat and the team in her office were absolutely wonderful in dealing with my case over a span of 18 months. When I first met Kat, I was hoping for an “open and shut” case as this was what my ex wife and I were interested in – however I had prepared myself for the case going to trial as I knew my ex wife too well. At the end of the day, I got much more than what I wanted and in the long-term, my lower monthly support payments are substantially less than what my ex wife was trying to obtain (and less than I had in mind going into the case). The case was settled on the day the trial was to begin, based on recommendations from the Judge which I gladly accepted. Everyone in Kat’s office was very professional in dealing with my case. When Kat was on maternity, her colleagues took over and dealt with issues professionally. This review is not just about Kat’s abilities, but the entire team at her firm.
A word of advice for anyone hiring an attorney for a divorce – go with someone local, who only focuses on family law and has a strong team behind them. Kat’s knowledge of the Court, the other attorneys, the judges and the details of Illinois law allow her to be well respected in the judicial community.
