What Our Clients Are Saying

“Matt and Christina have been great to work with. As a first time small business owner; I really had no idea what I needed legally to be protected. They’ve lead me through the basic start up process, and have been an extremely important resource for questions along the way. They seem genuinely interested in the success of my business, and follow up on a regular basis to see how things are going. It’s also nice to know I can call them and receive trustworthy advise without worrying about the billable clock running the entire time! They have been extremely fair with their time and charges! I’d recommend them to any new business owner!”

-Liz Y., Owner of CCR

“I am so thankful for being introduced to Matt. He was friendly, clear, and approachable from our very first meeting. I truly felt that his primary interest was assisting me with my business needs, not selling services. I’m a small client, but my e-mails, questions, and phone calls are always responded to immediately with exactly the information I need. Hiring your first lawyer as a small business owner can be a bit intimidating, but I trust Matt 110% to provide the right counsel and ensure everything is taken care of. I never expected that talking with my lawyer could be such an enjoyable experience. Thank you Formeller & Formeller LLP!”

-Katie G., Owner of speech IRL

“Setting up a new business can be a daunting task. Formeller & Formeller LLP were able to breakdown and effectively communicate in non-legal terms the various documents we needed to file and create. Once these documents were in place, Christina and Matt have continued to interpret contracts and provide sound advice on how to grow our business.”

-Mark C., Owner of Mark Campbell Photography LLC

“Gilco has been working with Formeller & Formeller LLP for a couple of years to represent the company for construction related citations that we receive from the City of Chicago. We usually work with Matt Formeller, who is very attentive and knowledgeable. When we notify Matt of a new citation, he responds quickly and professionally. We often send Matt evidence, such as photos and/or documentation from our customers. He pays close attention to the details and follows up again when a court date is getting close to be certain that nothing has changed and that he fully understands the key issues. It is invaluable to be working with Matt and know that he puts in the time and effort needed to negotiate the best possible outcome for Gilco.  Thanks for all you do!”

-Tom G., Owner of Gilco Scaffolding Co LLC
