When you need a keen legal mind with your best interest at heart, Allen Gabe is the go-to man. I have known Allen on a professional level since 2010, and have been able to engage with him on several occasions as a client. Allen has always been upfront, balanced, and doesn't waste time or money. I have referred him many times, and have heard from other colleagues, and acquaintances that he has also been great to work with. I also appreciate that he participates in and is active in his industry, and within the community on social support matters.

Mr Gabe is an outstanding attorney. I know that the words "honest" and "attorney" are not always associated but I consider Mr Gabe extremely honest. I used him for a divorce which was very complicated and a business contract. I never ever had any concerns about his billing which was always appropriate and reasonable. Besides being an excellent attorney, he is a very personable human being who treats people with respect. During the divorce proceedings, I had to unwillingly change attorneys for reasons beyond my and Mr Gabe's control (long story). Mr Gabe, instead of dropping me like a hot potato or being upset, was gracious and helpful even in this circumstance. He assisted me in finding several good options for another attorney to represent me. I highly recommend him as being honest, competent and reasonable. I would send any of my friends or family members to him without hesitation and I will continue to utilize his services for any future matters that I have.

I have had the opportunity to have worked with Mr Gabe.He will use your children and use parental alienation tactics, taking your kid for a ride while double dipping in both the petitioner's and respondent's bank accounts. Unfortunately your family will spend a lot of money when working with this guy. He likes to inflame the divorce proceedings to his financial gain. I find him difficult to work with when he uses parental alienation and puts children right in the middle of proceedings. If you have children, be careful of this guy, he is willing to put your kids through the low road, during a divorce.

He tries hard to double dip. He outright omits facts in his handling of court orders. He is lawyer who partakes in parental alienation. If you’re a lawyer who never has worked against him, double check his writing of court orders. And what is the best way to take away someone’s creditably? Try to call them crazy. Nice try.Really? You’ve just outed your client. Nice job, Mr Gabby.

Mr. Gabe sold me during the consultation in that he could and would be able to take over my family matter case. Upon hiring him I expressed my immediate concerns regarding parenting time and the need to address this with the opposing attorney, that never occured. In the span of 3 months I still do not know where my child resides nor was a schedule decided upon for parenting time. Secondly the charges discussed in the consult were not the actual charges I recieved. For example, I was charged for travel time to/from court plus parking to the tune of $700 in addition to his standard fee to appear in court totaling $1500 for just 1 appearance. There were also several other charges and the depletion of my retainer for "review" that never manifested itself into conversations with the apposing attorney, myself, or results. There was a lack of commuincation and I feel as though my concerns were not being heard and the service or lack there of reflects this. I understand the process can be long and dragged out but to be in the dark throughout, doesn't show professionalism or a care and concern for the outcome of my case. When I choose to seek new counsel he took it upon himself to use an additional $1200 of my retainer to formally withdraw unnecessarily as my new counsel had already filed her appearance. The lack of communication and unreasonable practices were consistent throughout the 3 months he represented me.

unprofessional, cocky, unreasonable, worse experience. Stay away from this from this guy at all cost! Stole my money! I'm in the process of filing a formal complaint on this guy. He did NOT have my best interest in my case. I'm really question the validity of his other reviews.

Expert advice and great communication is what comes to mind when working with Allen. He is fantastic at listening to the issue at hand, and formulating a productive plan on how to move forward. He is clearly a subject matter expert but has the rare ability to communicate the legalese in an easy to understand manner.

Like another reviewer, I too question the validity of all the great reviews about Allen Gabe. I hired him because I thought he was an honest guy full of integrity and truly wanted to do what’s best for me. BOY WAS I FOOLED! If you have a ton of money to waste on him, go for it. But that’s all he wants, and is all he is concerned about ......... the money!!!!! And be careful becuase he charges for administrative services such as mailing fees etc, which I found out too late is a no no. I was making payments while he was “representing” me, but it wasn’t good enough. One day out of the blue, I suddenly get a notice that demands payment in full (upwards of 20,000) within five days or he will no longer represent me ((and was so close to the end of finalizing my divorce). Obviously I don’t have have that type of cash, and a judgement was filed against me without noitice or even time for me to respond. At this point I had already made about 12000 in payments! So it’s not like I wasn’t trying. Today, he still continues to not accept a payment plan and also continues to accrue 9% interest per year. He’s a hypocrite too. He once told me throughout my divorce proceedings that he cant squeeze water out of a rock (referring to my now ex husband who fought to not have to accept any financial responsibilities for his 3 kids). But right now, he is sure doing everything in his power to squeeze water out of a rock. Bottom line.....he does not care about you. He cares ONLY about the money.

I highly recommend Allen Gabe. He is very well organized, well prepared, extremely thorough and knowledgeable of Illinois divorce law. With compassion and great dedication, he helped me navigate an extremely difficult divorce spanning several years involving complicated financial and parenting issues. He was a tremendous asset and comfort to me during court room appearances and used his many years of experience to achieve a very positive result. Great attorney!

Nice try to deflect this poor performance review on yourself Mr Gabe. You need to accept responsibility of the parental alienation you help take part against my son and your poor professional ethics you display.By using my name , you just outed your client. Well done. How easy it is to Google my name to find your client's name.Update March 30, 2019. As of today, Mr Gabe and his firm has still not provided the paperwork that is due to me to receive the money I am owed in this divorce. I still have not received any paperwork to sign, transferring ownership of certain items. If you choose to hire him, double check his work. If your up against him, warn your lawyer that he is shady and will omit facts to his benefit. If you are getting a divorce and you have kids, ask yourself, do you love them? Because this guy has and will encourage to put your kids, right in the middle. And that's not what you want to do to your children. Not young children who are old enough to remember. They are the most important thing in any divorce with children. Remember that before you start fighting with your spouse over any divorce litigation. If you're reading this and about to start a divorce, God bless you. It's rough on any family and remember, your children come first. Mr Gabe will try to encourage you to use your child and put them in the middle. I implore you, don't let him do it. The damage is long lasting to any child. Think hard and God Bless.

After struggling with my initial divorce attorney, I started searching for new representation. A co-worker referred me to Allen. After meeting with Allen, I knew immediately I needed to make a change. Although at first you may think his humor is a little dry, he is professional, very knowledgeable and, at times, quite witty.Once he had a chance to review my documents, he noticed that my case was filed incorrectly by my first attorney. He submitted the proper court documentation to finally get my divorce moving in the right direction. I have just completed my case and I would recommend Allen to any of my friends and family that would need legal advise. My proceeding was not easy and I was happy to have Allen on my side.I want to thank Allen and his team for all the support. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case.

Allen has been a lifesaver for my family and I. I had to switch attorneys, as I needed an attorney that understood that I was in a war battle(not the typical divorce). Hiring Allen was the best decision I made concerning my case. While hiring expert counsel like Allen is not cheap, he is not just about the money(like many attorneys are). Allen not only fought for me, but he fought for my child as well. Allen was precise and tactical, and his methods yielded great results in my case. If you need a fierce but compassionate litigator Allen is the perfect choice.
