I could not have picked a better attorney!

Mr. Ivec is the perfect no nonsense attorney. Although I was not recommended to him, I would recommend him for any and all services that he provides! I had some financial issues and things got out of my control, and Mr. Ivec still took care of me. This is not the reason I would recommend him, but his demeanor and professionalism is unrivaled. If I ever need an attorney again for any reason, even if it is not in his field, I am going to call him first in order for him to recommend me the direction to go in.

Impeccable Service!

My family and I, would like to thank John Paul Ivec, Attorney at Law for his impeccable service! The case was for criminal tresspass, but was prolonged for a year, due to our son not being able to attain fitness with his mental illness. Even with months in on that case, without hesitation, Mr. Ivec also agreed to represent our son with several ordiance violations. Mr. Ivec is a very smart and compassionate criminal law attorney who knows his stuff. He was able to get ALL cases dismissed with prejudice!!! He was always available on the phone/email and responded to our queries promptly. His fees were beyond reasonable and well worth it! Above all he is a great human being who genuinely cares for his clients, as he tirelessly fought for my son and offered him sound advice from beginning to end. We definitely found an excellent attorney with John Paul Ivec, Attorney at Law and would highly recommend his services!

Without Reservation

On occasion my family and I have used JohnPaul's legal services. I was able to observe the respect he has from peers and others in the legal system. His execution of moral, sound, and unbiased decisions based on facts available is always in a calm and cheerful manner. He is strongly dedicated to the rule of law and possesses strong communication skills. My personal background may add emphasis to this recommendation of JohnPaul. I am a retired data processing manager of Sears, Roebuck as well as a retired member of IBM's executive field operations staff. I also served as a 1st Lieutenant in USAREUR in the post WWII occupation of Germany. In these positions I was required to evaluate and offer recommendations involving hundreds of subordinates, contemporaries and sometimes superiors. I have and will continue to recommend JohnPaul to others without reservation.

Excellent Lawyer

John is a very professional, thorough, responsible and honest lawyer. He stays on top of everything and does his best to shoot for the best possible outcome for a very reasonable price. He doesn't put any faces on for you, like some lawyers who try to charm you with a false sense of security may do, and sticks to the point of the matter. This, however, does not mean that he is lacking a caring personality or a nice sense of humor. Most importantly, he succeeded in helping me avoid a conviction on my record. I highly recommend him.

- Dave

John Paul is a Good Lawyer

John Paul is a good lawyer. He got me what I needed in my case, he kept me informed and I would recommend him for anyone who is charged with a crime in Will County.

Excellent Representation

John Paul recently represented my 18 year old son in a cannabis related case. He struck exactly the right chord with my son from our first meeting by thoroughly explaining the process and the long term ramifications of the matter. He provided excellent ongoing guidance and communication. By following John Paul's advice and leveraging his relationship with the local prosecutor, we were able to see the charges significantly reduced. Once the necessary time has past we will once again call on John Paul to have all records of this matter expunged.

- Criminal Defense client

An EXCELLENT attorney!!!

I received a speeding ticket and a misunderstood theft charge as a result of an argument. I contacted Mr. Ivec to represent me in these matters. I informed him of the court date for the offenses I was charged with. The cases were in a different county than which he normally works in, he informed me that he had no problem being there to represent me. he also discussed the cases with me and informed me of all the possible outcomes and fines I might expect to see depending on the outcome. When I arrived at court Mr. Ivec was there to meet me, he discussed the case once again with me, and then proceeded to discuss the matter with the prosecuting attorney. I was very pleased with the professionalism and the timely manner in which everything was handled! He was able to get the theft charge dismissed and the speeding ticket handled in a manner that was VERY affordable to me! I was in and out of court very quickly and was kept well informed of every aspect of what was transpiring. I am EXTREMELY pleased with Mr. Ivec's performance and professionalism! In my opinion there is no better attorney to be had, he will go above and beyond for his clients and treats every clients case and client with the utmost respect. I , hopefully will never need to hire an attorney again, but if I do there is and always will be only one for me! Mr. John Ivec! I would and will highly recommend him to anyone I run across that is in need of representation for any legal matters!

- Richard

Our daughter hit a little bump in the road and got in a little bit of trouble with the law because an ex-boyfriend pushed her to her limits. John Paul handled her OP really well. We are thankful that she was granted the OP. He also handled her city ordinance violation well. We are thankful for the outcome of the city violations. Thank you, John Paul, for being an honest and upfront lawyer.

- Karen

Thank you JohnPaul

I hired me Ivec for a felony case in Kendal county Illinois. From the beginning he told me I was wrongly being charged with the crimes. For over a year he was trying to negotiate a plea deal and in the end he felt they where trying to bully me. So we went to trial. JohnPaul proved to the judge that I was innocent on the felony and misdemeanor charges and I was found not guilty. On both charges. Thank you John Paul for giving me my life back and standing up for me to the very end. He was fair priced and very professional till the end. If I ever happen to find my self in a bad spot again I will definitely retain him as my lawyer. Thank you John Paul!

DUI Representation

John Paul represented my son on two DUI charges. He spent a lot of time working with the prosecutor to develop an equitable outcome. He kept us informed of the court proceedings throughout the course of the trial. He spent time researching alternative solutions to avoid prison time for my son. This resulted in my son staying in a residential treatment facility in lieu of spending time in jail.
