“Joel is an absolute GREAT attorney. He fought for me and got me very good results. He has been in the business a very long time and knows the ins and outs of family law. He answers emails promptly and responds to calls right away. I trusted Joel and he did right by me. Hiring an attorney in a divorce is a very important thing and Joel is a great choice!”


“Joel was very helpful in my time of need. He was my second attorney after a disaster of a first one. Joel was very honest and up front with what I could and could not achieve in my court case. Although I wanted everything, he helped me get (what in the end) was the most important for myself and my children. He was there every step of the way helping me understand, even the slightest things.”


“Joel handled my side of a divorce representing me through not only the bureaucracy of Cook County but expected dealings of an opposing attorney. I found Joel to be focused, knowledgeable and organized. He made himself available when contacted and clearly communicated when and how he would follow-up. He attempted to communicate directly with the opposing attorney trying to avoid court proceedings and costs. This showed he was engaged. Although I had never planned to use him in the past and I have no plans to use him in the future I would recommend him. He even knows a few Lawyers jokes.”


“Mr. Degrazia was referred to me by another lawyer (Dupage County) who had used him in a case (Cook County) with much success. During my consultation, I liked his no-nonsense approach. I found him to be very knowledgeable and professional. After my ex tried to drag out the divorce by not filing proper documents, Joel knew all the motions to file to get things moving. He was very helpful and available to my many questions and always returned my phone calls or e-mails promptly. I would highly recommend Mr. Degrazia.”


“Not having an attorney, I needed one when my wife filed for divorce. A retired judge friend recommended Joel. After the first appointment Joel outlined the steps that would happen during the divorce process. I liked what I heard and saw. He was always keeping me in “loop” as what was happening. I liked how he operated. i.e.: with 35 years as a lawyer, when people speed up, I slow down. And when they slow down I speed up! Great way to operate. Joel is now my “forever attorney” for anything that requires legal insight.”


“My wife and I came to Mr Degrazia not looking for a Lawyer but a Mediator. The fact that he could be making twice the money with his Lawyer hat on made me skeptical. How wrong I was. He was superb! I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a terrible divorce.”
