    Anne provided excellent counsel on Title IX and Education law after our daughter was sexually assaulted at school. She helped with the our filing of a Title IX complaint with the US Dept. of Education and partnered effectively with the National Women's Law Center to settle the lawsuit filed on behalf our daughter. Anne's hard work will have a lasting impact on Title IX case law in the Federal courts because of a summary judgment related to deliberate indifference that was granted in the courts.

    Anne Buckleitner was very prompt in keeping me informed by email every step of way. A solution was achieved that was probably the best available considering the circumstances. We're pleased with the outcome.

    For me Anne did an excellent job. She kept me in the loop the entire time. She got me more than I expected. She is very direct and to the point, which I greatly appreciated. She is the best. I have recommended her to my friends.

    Review for Katie N. Steffes on 11/17/11 in Trusts and Estates

    Excellent with both simple estate issues and the very arcane complex ones that come up in family issues. Her ability to offer custom solutions (not paste and cut) really put us at peace with our estate plan.

    In all of my dealings with the firm, everyone was very responsive and thorough. Most importantly, once they took my case, I felt like they put everything into it.

    This is a firm with soul! We have used three of the partners directly and they make a "fighting unit"! We have no more need to travel to Lasalle Street in Chicago when the "Brown Shoe Big Guns" are needed. The job is done correct and prompt. It must be pointed out that final fees have always been under budget.
