I work for a municipality and encounter many attorneys in my line of work, therefore, I am a bit seasoned to recognize a good one. As with many professions, people get a degree, but the diploma doesn’t guarantee quality. With the abundance of lawyers, finding one that is hard working and intelligent is like finding a needle in a haystack. Finding one that has those traits, along with talent, compassion and wisdom is like discovering plutonium. Corri Fetman beats plutonium.
My case was a very unique one. I consulted four attorneys, three of whom were recommended as being ‘top guns’. They paled to Corri Fetman. During my first meeting, she was the only person who listened without interruption, took diligent notes, didn’t try to put words in my mouth, analyzed, strategized, and spoke to me as a true professional advisor of the law, which she knows like the back of her hand. All others kept pushing only what they knew, which didn’t appear to be all that much. They kept trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
Corri Fetman focused on what shape my case was, and built the perfect peg to fit it. She covered every base, and had the talent, wisdom and creativity to blow everyone else in the court room away. When your attorney wins court call after court call, and you hear your judge lean over and say ‘Good job’, you know you have the gold medalist in your corner. How did I find her? I asked my high profile municipal attorney friend, where to find a good divorce attorney. She surveyed some pretty high judges. Their consensus was an attorney who had earned their respect in the courtroom – Corri Fetman.
She took care of me, my family, and ensured that my child has a protected future. She, and her very talented associate, are my saviors.
I retained Corri to handle my contested post-decree case and unfortunately rehired them recently to handle another post-decree case. Both lawyers were straightforward, honest, zealous advocates, hardworking, detail orientated, terrific litigators, not to mention kind and compassionate throughout their representation. They were always responsive to my needs, approachable, and answered all of my legal questions.
It’s easy to find divorce lawyers, but difficult to find divorce lawyers who truly care about their clients and their client’s children. Corri truly cares about both. I recommend this law firm to all that I know who are going through a divorce or post decree issue. I wouldn’t hire any other law firm.
MARTIN MCGUIRE’S STORY
Corri Fetman of Chicago Women at Law, Ltd. represented me throughout a long and very difficult 3+ year paternity and support case.
Corri was upfront with the possibility of a lengthy court battle. Corri always made herself available to strategize and discuss options and potential pitfalls dealing with my case. She understood and represented me to the best of their abilities and I quickly realized that they would relentlessly fight to protect my rights. I would strongly recommend both Corri to anyone needing aggressive, responsive and knowledgeable representation. You cannot find a better lawyer in the business.
