Dear Jon and Madeleine: Thank you for all of your efforts in getting me through one of the most difficult and stressful time in my life…  Although the snapshot of the situation I presented you was both terrifying and embarrassing for me, I really felt like I was dealing with a family member working to help me see it all through. Your personalized approach put you head and shoulders above the rest…  I am not sure that you get to hear this very often, but you two directly changed my life in a very positive way!  Thank you again for taking the time to understand my situation and help me see this though.          – Arlington Heights, IL

Dear John, I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help. After you filed my bankruptcy case, my financial situation greatly improved, and as of now, my situation with my home is resolved and all is well. I really appreciate all you and Madeline did for me and my family. Thank You. – Chicago, IL

I want to thank the team at Thinking Outside the Box. Most law firms I had met with wanted a quick and easy approach to solving my issues which I did not feel comfortable with… I would be just another number in their long list of filings and most likely missing on many positive outcomes… I would recommend Thinking Outside the Box to any business owner or personal client which is contemplating bankruptcy. -Naperville, IL

Attorney Jon Dowat and his team at Thinking Outside the Box are amazing!  It was so refreshing to work with an attorney who was sincerely listening to my issue and really cared what the outcome would be.  I always felt completely supported and knew I made the right choice for an Attorney and advisor.  -Geneva, IL

Both my husband and I were exhausted and felt defeated by the circumstances leading to our financial stress.  When we were looking for a bankruptcy attorney, we wanted someone that was not only an expert but was sincere and could somehow relate to our worries and situation.  Jon Dowat truly took the time to get to know us and our family without being judgmental or condescending.  He gave us our options and recommended what the best approach for us would be.  If the need arises we would absolutely refer Jon to our friends and family.  -Lombard, IL

Thanks for All your help.  I could not have gotten through this chapter of my life without you and your team.  THANK YOU!!!  -Chicago, IL

First of all let me start by thanking you for the uneventful and stress-free Chapter 7 filing you did for me, which I received a discharge order last April 26, 2010. It has been a huge financial relief, thank you, thank you!  -Streamwood, IL

I needed to file bankruptcy for months, but was afraid to be humiliated and denigrated by a large law firm. I went on-line and found your firm and felt the name was appropriate and was impressed by your experience. I am truly relieved and happy to have found you. I never felt uncomfortable with you and everything was explained in a very professional way. The process was much better than I expected. I really appreciate your kindness and expertise.
-Wheaton, IL

I want to thank you so much for all of your help. My questions and concerns have always been answered and you made the entire bankruptcy process comfortable. I feel like someone lifted 100lbs off my shoulders. Thank you for your help and kind words.

-Rolling Meadows, IL

It has been a pleasure having you as my attorney in the bankruptcy process. You have made a scary legal action easy and comforting. I would be comfortable recommending your expertise to a friend. Thank you for everything.

-Chicago, IL

We want to thank you for your genuine, honest approach to helping us in our situation. As you know, we were spinning in a few directions unsure of which would be appropriate and you helped us with what appears to be a solution that is both creative as well as not inappropriate to the situation. Your firm is more than appropriately named. That you spend the time you did with us, enlisted the aid of colleagues on our behalf and proposed a solution that had no immediate financial benefit to you all without requesting remuneration only supports your stated objective of “do the right thing and the rest will follow.”  You have been a very unexpected breath of fresh air.

-Glenview, IL

I have been involved in a Workman’s Compensation claim for over 2 years, am disabled and have been living on a fixed income. These circumstances have created an overwhelming amount of debt. I was boxed-in with worry until being referred to Jon Dowat.

Jon Dowat and his staff walked me through the process of complicated foreclosures and answered all of my questions along the way. They made the bankruptcy process seem less confusing and overwhelming. We worked together to formulate a solution. Things are looking much brighter. Thanks for helping me “think outside the box!”

-Glen Ellyn, IL

It’s been nine months since bankruptcy, almost a year since we contacted your office.  It was definitely one of the hardest things we have been through!  The respect, honesty, care  & knowledge provided by your office was incredible.  Thank you for that! We never felt alone or without answers to any of our questions.

When Jon met us at the courthouse, I observed other lawyers with their clients; they looked so disorganized and confused.  Jon walked us through everything with confidence and knowledge.  Thank you Madeleine and Jon!
