I always had full confidence that George would get the best possible outcome even if it wasn't what I had hoped for.
  • Feroze Gani

    Feb 24 2018 Mr. Bellas is one of the best attorneys in Chicagoland working on partnership issues. He helped me navigate the complex legal processes through the end. Although it took a very long time, having Geo by side made me feel secure and comfortable during the emotional roller coaster. We ended up in mediation and agreeing to a settlement. Thanks Geo
  • Douglas Barnes

    Feb 18 2018 We had some discrepancies added to our main client agreement by the client which threw us completely off. Bellas-Wachowski took the time to assess what had been modified in our agreement and came back with a practical rebuttal that our customer immediately accepted. Then and only then I was told by our customer that they had slipped in wording they had used with other contractors and they knew it was out of place in our agreement. If the wording had not been straightened out, it could have potentially ruined our 36 year old company! They also added a paragraph to protect the integrity of the entire agreement should a minor technical flaw be discovered, the remainder of the agreement would remain viable. Thanks guys!!
  • Jeff condon

  • Parth Savsani

    Jul 23 2018 We went to Mr. Wachowski for assistance with an auto accident settlement. The insurance company was paying us pennies for a serious injury and as such we had decided to seek legal help. I am extremely cautious of lawyers especially after hearing stories about how they always run after your money. However, Mr. Wachowski was a complete gentleman! He came out as a humble human being who truly made sure to understand our problem and hear us out. His staff handled all the paperwork gathering as well as reaching out to people as needed. There were tasks that we were assigned to do however most of the time they handled the stuff for us. At the end of the settlement, he ensured that our payout was fair and that all the appropriate healthcare bills were taken care of. I'd recommend him and his team to anyone seeking such help.
