read moreDenise is attentive and responsive and she helped save me thousands of dollars and many hours of time spent in Court. Denise is focused and determined and an excellent family lawyer. I have been involved in several post decree High Conflict cases and Denise has triumphed in each one. Denise listens and researches all of the issues involved in my case. I can't say enough about her. A family lawyer who is dedicated and who really cares. A rarity in Family Law. I would especially recommend Denise to anyone who has a difficult ex and needs to sort out a lot of chaos and confusion and keep the issues focused. Denise works tirelessly to get things done in a timely and efficient manner.

read moreI cannot adequately express my satisfaction and gratitude for Denise Erlich and the Erlich Law Office, LLC. I found myself in a situation where my entire world was imploding around me and I could not have gotten through it without the steady composure, focus and experience that Denise provided me. She is the most caring and understand attorney that I've ever had experience with. I found myself dealing with a very manipulative ex and her manipulative attorney, but she always kept me focused and did not let me or the case get distracted by all the noise that the other side was creating. Without her steady focus and ability to see through all the distractions that were thrown out there I would have absolutely taken the bait and my divorce process would have had a completely different result. Denise was always available and never made me feel that I was not a priority to her.

I felt I could text her or talk to her whenever I had a question or concern no matter how minor it was. She listened closely to my concerns, provided her experienced professional advice and reassured me that everything would be okay. She kept me very well informed every step of the way and if I had any questions, she was timely in returning my calls. If I didn't agree or didn't like the way it might turn out in court, she advised me on very good alternatives. She is experienced, tenacious, sharp, ethical and knows family law inside and out.

At the same time, she is personable, empathetic and understanding. I could not have made it through the horrible process if it was not for Denise. I am beyond satisfied and thankful I had her on my side.

read moreWhile looking for a lawyer, I googled best divorce lawyers in DuPage County and Denise Erlich's name appeared. During the free consultation, she explained the whole divorce process in a very understandable way; she listened to all of my questions and answered them with confidence, and honesty, taking as much time as needed with me. I was very impressed by her intelligence and experience. She made me feel extremely comfortable and I knew I wanted her to represent me. She is very hands on and easy to reach, whenever needed, either by phone or email. She gets back to you very quickly and you actually talk to her and not someone that works for her. Denise exceeded all of my expectations. I highly recommend her for any legal representation.

read moreDenise has been my attorney for three years. Shes very hardworking and dependable. There hasnt been a time I have called nor emailed that she hasnt responded right away. (Shes been sick with the flu as well as on vacation) and still answered.
I am currently involved with a horrific court battle with my sons mom for custody. From day 1 Denise has been very hardworking. Shes truly a great attorney. I have watched her kick butt in trial against attorneys. Shes very organized which means everything in court. If I could give her more stars I would. Its a relief to have a great attorney.

I had multiple questions and concerns. Denise, always answered all my questions whether it was email, in person, or on the phone. She was very prompt, compassionate and knowledgeable. I am very grateful to find a hardworking lawyer and would recommend Denise to anyone.

read moreDenise provided me with excellent counsel in a collaborative divorce setting. She was excellent in keeping the process moving while allowing me the time to work through the emotions associated with divorce. She was very fair with her fees, and highly ethical. She also kept opposing counsel on task throughout the process. She is an excellent advocate who maintains professionalism and respect for all parties involved. She works efficiently, and tries hard to keep her fees down. I think she genuinely cares about her clients well being. She is a credit to her difficult profession.

read moreDenise is a generous, compassionate, hard working lawyer. You can always count on getting a response via email or phone. You are never waiting for days for a reply or feel neglected. I have even gotten replies into the evening when you know she at home and not at the office. I have a high level of respect for her knowledge, understanding, honesty, and her genuine concern for your case. Denise is easy to talk to you and you will be very pleased if you choose her for your legal needs! Denise does an excellent job!

read moreI've been dragged into some really unwanted IL family law situations over the past five years, and of all the lawyers I've worked with in the Chicago area - which are many at this point - Denise Erlich has been far and away the best. She's compassionate, hard-working and knowledgeable, plus she's honest and ferocious. I've been thrown under the bus by fee-churning opportunists and taken advantage of by impersonal, greedy lawyers before... but Denise bills only for the acutal work she does and it's been a very favorable experience, in spite of the struggle. I highly recommend her!

read moreDenise Erlich is an intelligent, hard-working, compassionate, reasonable and generous lawyer. I really can't say enough in a review to express my gratitude and respect for her work, but I'll try. Ms. Erlich helped me get through a highly-contentious divorce trial, and she constantly worked with me on possible solutions instead of allowing me to get caught up in the legal and emotional battles that are involved in these sort of cases. Even though my case was contentious, Ms. Erlich showed the skills to work through collaborative divorce proceedings as well. Up until the trial, she made multiple attempts to forge an agreement, but the opposing attorney was extremely unwilling to negotiate the terms of the agreement. We therefore had to go to trial. When we did, Ms. Erlich was unrelenting in her work in and out of the court to make the best possible case for me. It was a direct result of this hard-working dedication and her skills in the courtroom that I received a decision that exceeded my expectations. No matter what level of legal difficulty you are facing, I would recommend Denise Erlich to help you.
Tammy Pesenti
read moreAt a time when I felt most helpless, Denise Erlich was referred to me. She was affordable, fair, and easy to talk to about all subject matters. I always knew where things stood as she was an excellent communicator, responding to phone calls and emails promptly. Also, I did not feel nickeled and dimed for every phone call and email. She was knowledgeable and honest on all fronts. I was able to obtain the outcome that I was looking for through her hard work and dedication. I highly recommend Denise!
