Testimonials from Our Clients

Janet was a source of stability during a time of ultimate turbulence. Beyond the guidance and legal direction, the whole office was friendly, supportive and helped me maintain my sanity when during crazy times.



Family Law Solutions helped me through the most difficult time of my life. Being married for 44 years and 67 years old, I had no idea how to proceed with the dissolution of my marriage. Everyone I dealt with showed compassion, empathy, and professionalism. They make their clients a priority. Their fee structure is fair, reasonable, and transparent. Through their invoicing process, I always knew what my status was and how I was billed. Janet Boyle has created an exceptional team with her philosophy and her commitment to her clients.



Experienced, knowledgeable, caring and willing to fight for what is right. A premier law firm in the city of Chicago that will protect and defend your rights under the law and in the courts. Their services are second to none. I highly recommend Janet Boyle in particular!



I came to Janet to help me through a very complex divorce about a year ago and a friend of mine told me about this site. I wanted to express my gratitude for Janet's expertise in helping me through a very trying time in my life. The words "honey badger" comes to mind when I think of Janet's demeanor in the courtroom and in negotiations with my husband's attorney. Janet and her team represented me from the beginning to the end exactly the way one could only hope for.



Janet listened carefully to me and addressed every concern and perceived problem that I thought I would encounter during the process...In conjunction with Arin in her office each time the process would get heated and emotional both Janet and Arin we able to calm the situation down with care and concern for me and ultimately we were able to settle the divorce to my complete satisfaction.



Janet Boyle did a wonderful job assessing my situation and determining the best approach to reach a settlement with my ex-husband. I appreciated her willingness to honor my request to be respectful toward my ex-husband. She accomplished that while standing firm on some very important issues.



Arin Fife and Janet Boyle are wonderful. Arin worked so hard. She was empathetic, kind, patient and the voice of reason. I grew to trust them implicitly. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone!



During the most difficult time I've ever had in my life, Janet helped and guided me with skill and compassion. I couldn't be more happy with the job she did representing me. My case, I believe, was considerably more difficult than most cases and Janet was strong and dedicated from beginning to end. She does not bend to opposing counsel trying to take advantage or get an upper hand. Her staff is fantastic as well! My life has become much more peaceful with Janet's help. I would not hesitate to recommend Janet to anyone going down the tough road of divorce. Thank you Janet!
