CLAIR COUNTY, ILLINOIS, WILL AND TRUST CONTEST LAW FIRM, TESTIMONIALS FROM CLIENTS IN REGARD TO WILL AND TRUST CONTESTS AND OTHER ESTATE PLANNING ISSUES (1) “BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. IS A FIRST RATE LAW FIRM THAT I WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE WITHOUT HESITATION. AS A NOMINAL INCOME BENEFICIARY OF MY DECEASED FATHER’S TRUST, I HIRED BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C., IN REGARD TO ISSUES WITH THE TRUSTEE RELATING TO MISMANAGEMENT AND OTHER MATTERS. BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. AGGRESSIVELY PURSUED MY INTEREST FROM THE START, INCLUDING FILING LAWSUITS TO REMOVE THE TRUSTEE AND TO SET ASIDE THE TRUST. BECAUSE OF BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAW AND ZEALOUS REPRESENTATION OF MY INTERESTS, THEY ACHIEVED A RESULT THAT GREATLY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. I WENT FROM RECEIVING A SMALL MONTHLY STIPEND AS AN INCOME BENEFICIARY UNDER THE TRUST, TO RECOVERY IN EXCESS OF $1,000,000.00, ALL WITHIN A SHORT TIME FRAME FROM THE DATE I HIRED BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. TO THE DATE THE CASE WAS CONCLUDED. I WAS IMPRESSED. BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. KEPT ME ADVISED IN REGARD TO WHAT WAS OCCURRING. I WAS AN OUT-OF-STATE CLIENT AND HAD NEVER DEALT WITH BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. PREVIOUSLY. THEY TREATED ME WITH RESPECT, ANSWERED ALL OF MY QUESTIONS, EXPLAINED VARIOUS OPTIONS AND STRATEGIES AND FOLLOWED MY REQUESTS AND INSTRUCTIONS. BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. ACHIEVED A RESULT FOR ME THAT I COULD NOT HAVE EVEN IMAGINED WHEN I INITIALLY CONTACTED THEM FOR LEGAL REPRESENTATION.” -P.S.D. (2) “I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C.

RECOVERED IN EXCESS OF $300,000.00 ON MY BEHALF IN A CONTESTED TRUST LITIGATION IN ST. CLAIR COUNTY, ILLINOIS. THERE WAS EXTENSIVE PREPARATION AND AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION AS BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. ASSUMED THE ROLE OF LEAD COUNSEL IN THE LITIGATION ON MY BEHALF. I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE EXPEDITED PACE OF THE LITIGATION AND I GREATLY APPRECIATED THE HARD WORK OF MY ATTORNEYS IN THE CASE. THE EXPERT HANDLING OF THE CASE BY BLAKE LAW GROUP, P.C. WAS A BLESSING FOR ME AND MY FAMILY AND I LOOK FORWARD TO BEING ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR MY CHILDREN’S NEEDS AND FUTURE EXPENSES AS A RESULT OF THE SUBSTANTIAL RECOVERY.
