    Sep 17 2018 My uncle asked me to be the Executor of his estate. This is a task I’d never done before. After my uncle’s passing, John Pembroke was was very patient in answering all my questions and guiding me through the duties and process of handling my uncle’s estate. More to it than I expected... emotionally and task-wise. John made it manageable for me. His colleagues were also very helpful in handling, what seemed to me, a mountain of details.

  • Susan L Mainzer

    Jul 17 2018 Mr. Pembroke prepared several legal documents for my elderly parents. Due to my parents limited mobility they could not travel to Mr. Pembroke's office to sign the documents. Mr. Pembroke offered to come to their home to obtain their signatures and answer any further questions about the documents. We had a signing party that included friends and neighbors who served as witnesses to my parents' signatures on the documents. Without Mr. Pembroke's act of kindness to come to their home, my parents and I would not have had the legal documents in place to facilitate their personal requests. I will gladly seek Mr. Pembroke's legal assistance again!  Thank you, Mr. Pembroke.

  • Kathleen Gallagher Kurland

    Jun 29 2018 We have employed John on several occasions over the years and he and the entire Pembroke team do a great job! Thank you.
  • Mrs Christina M Miller

    Jun 24 2018 Since I worked for some of the very TOP ATTORNEYS in Chicago, I knew what to look for when it came to hiring attorney representation. Pembroke Law Firm came highly recommended by a personal friend and after interviewing two other law firms, decided upon this one. No regrets to date. If you're looking for communication and understanding of YOUR NEEDS, consider Pembroke. My only complaint and my only complaint is getting feedback on the quick after scheduled hearings. It's hard to be patient when your expectations aren't met.
