I want to let you know how much I appreciate you representing my nephew’s case and your generosity towards my sister. You are really well suited for juvenile law. Mitch felt very comfortable with you. Thank you so much.
– Chris

Thank you so much for helping my sister through this tough time.
– Lori K.

Thank you so much for helping Janine and I on April 12, 2005, in court room 3009 in helping us fill out the Change of Custody papers, you were very nice and I thank you very much. If I ever need your services I will be calling you first.
– Willie S.

Thank you so much for writing the letter for us for the adoption. I can’t tell you how kind is was that you took the time out of your busy schedule to write us the letter. They accepted the letter and we completed and passed our home study and are on a waiting list for a child in Guatemala. We couldn’t have done any of this without you help with DCFS. Laura, your team is special to us.
– Fred & Laura K.

I want to send a short note to thank you very much for the excellent work you have done on my sister’s behalf as you helped navigate her through her divorce proceedings. I can’t tell you how appreciative I am of your professionalism and friendship during this entire process. My sister can now move forward and enjoy her life and you are the huge reason why.

Thanks so much for the cross for my father. I see it every day, and it brings good memories of him to me. Thanks also for being supportive and thoughtful through this whole process. You will never know how much I appreciate all of your team.

Thank you! You’re the greatest.
– Jon & Susan

Its nice to know that there are still people who take such pleasure in doing special things and making others feel good. Thank you so much.
– Kelly K.

I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you did for me and my son. I came into your office Monday before my next court date with no lawyer, no court paperwork, no money and no idea what I was going to do next. I remember you stopped everything you were doing to review my case and you did not hesitate to take my case, which was a miracle for my son and I. Unfortunately I have had some very bad experiences with lawyers. You proved to me immediately that not only were you great but you also cared about my son and wanted to help him. I feel extremely fortunate to have met you in one of the darkest times and you brought joy and sunshine to my son and I and my “new” life together with my son.
I am truly grateful for everything.
– Julie O.

This is just a little note to thank you for your time to help straighten me out. It’s nice to know there are honest and straight lawyers still around. I’m sorry I did not have you on my side first.
– Ed K.

Thank you for your counsel, direction and confidence in my case, you believing what I said, talking to me at my worst and trusting me in spite of having a “conviction” on my record is greatly appreciated. It was reassuring, generous and honorable of you to tell me you would take my case back and at the same time, encouraged me to finish my interview process. Peace and blessings, I wish you and your family a lifetime of good health, happiness and continued prosperity.
– Salvatore

Thank you for all your of your help and for watching my back. I love you guys.
– Kristin

I know the work you do is very taxing and overwhelming at times. It seems to me that the reason it is so demanding is because you demand so much of yourself. You are an excellent lawyer, an artful advocate and a caring person. Do not despair; ignore those who do not try to do well. Do what you can to improve wary situations, just like you have always done. If this field of practice is no longer for you, it will be revealed. Good will not let you fail. Your good works do not go unnoticed. Just let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.
– George

Thank you for all your help on Monday with re-arranging your schedule. Your confidence and cool demeanor made all the difference. I got to see two very strong personalities at court. It was such a stark contrast of the right way to do things and the wrong way – it was actually very embarrassing to watch especially to see someone praise themselves for their horrible behavior while you didn’t feel the need to say a word.
– Liz

Laura did a great job representing me. At the same time she was GREAT at helping me put my personal hurt aside and so what was what right for my kids. She was also very straightforward about which battles were necessary and which were just wasting money.
– Sally M.

I want to thank you for supporting and helping me through a very difficult time during my life. I am sure, someday, my five children and two grandchildren will be grateful to you also.

Your professional knowledge and your experience was nothing less than outstanding. You are very good at what you do. I, too, was a professional in my job, and I appreciate your skills and leadership.

Your friendship and counseling were greatly needed by me during this difficult time in my life. You took control of my situation and showed me the best path to go. I truly felt you were a good friend during this ordeal. I know it is a business. You were always professional with me and supporting.

I needed to tell you this from my heart. I could not have made it without you. I was too emotional over the whole ordeal. I am at peace now, and my children, as well as I, are doing better. My wife and I see the future differently. It matters not who was right or wrong, our family was suffering and the divorce was the best answer.

Once again, thank you from my heart, I will always remember how you, being the best lawyer I have ever seen in action, used your expertise and knowledge to allow me to have a better life and future, allowing me to assist my children and grandchildren the rest of my life.
– Lewis W.

I’m writing to express my deepest gratitude for all the help you gave us this week. Thank you very, very much. My grandson and I are safe in my home and he is sleeping peacefully.
– Jon P.

I’m still looking for the words that would express my thanks to you for all you did for me. I met with Mary yesterday. She is delightful and seems very caring. I would like to save my 62 years of marriage and she expressed the same thoughts.

Laura, I’m so frightened and worried and also somewhat angry, but hopefully with people like you on my side, I’ll make it. Thank you.
– Helen G.

It’s rare to find someone who is so in tune with what’s really important in life, and so passionately on a daily basis. You are a shining example of what a true friend should be.
– Magnya L.

My wife and I were foster parents. Early on, our case became so complicated, we got intervener status and we hired Laura Kern. She helped the child and us out to work through the DuPage court process; the steps involved a high level understanding of the law and the people involved in the process. Our faith in honest, decent lawyers has been restored.

Laura proved to be a special angel for the child. She is wonderful. She is a true child advocate. She has her perspective in check on these issues and knows how to get things done. She is resourceful, organized and well thought of in the legal community. She also knows her way around the DCFS world. She was a worthy advocate for the child in court and behind the scenes. She is a valuable asset to DuPage County Bar and court system.
