The Legal-Ease Law Clinic and founding attorney Reese Krajniak are committed to expanding access to experienced legal representation by working with our clients to determine a rate they can afford.

Our Philosphy

The Legal-Ease Law Clinic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the aim of bridging the gap between free Legal Aid and expensive full-price legal representation. We meet our clients at prices they can pay using a sliding fee scale based on income and household size. Our experienced attorneys dedicate a portion of their time each week to serving our clients at reduced rates without sacrificing any of the quality you would expect from a full-price firm.

Affordable, Approachable, Accessible.

At the Legal-Ease Law Clinic, we focus on serving low-to-middle income clients who exceed the threshold for free Legal Aid but are unable to comfortably afford the typically high rates for legal services in the Chicago area. We believe that our clients should not have to forgo the services of a qualified attorney on the basis of cost alone.

Our primary practice areas include family law, immigration, and criminal misdemeanor and traffic violation defense. In cases such as these, many people choose to represent themselves because they feel that the cost of an attorney is not worth the financial burden in addition to the challenges or penalties they are already facing. However, we know that clients with skilled legal representation are often more likely to save costs and avoid facing penalties, and an attorney may be able to help you prevent hardship that would impact you and your family for the rest of your lives.

We currently serve clients in DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Cook, Will, and DeKalb Counties, and we strive to grow our practice so that more clients throughout Illinois have access to the legal services they need. If you are looking for an affordable attorney, or if you want to help us fulfill our mission, please contact us today at 630-447-5733.

Testimonials

  • Cherissa and her staff were extremely helpful with my immigration problem. Cherissa was very knowledgeable about how to proceed with my case and gave great advice. She took the time to always talk with me and answer all my questions. She didn't just do her job. She went above and beyond to help me and my family. She cared and it showed through her work. I am so happy with my experience with her firm that I just needed to get the word out about her. Trust me you will not regret using her services! I highly recommend this firm!

  • Reese is an excellent business attorney. She really understands how hard it is to open your own business and she walked me through everything I needed from incorporating to the asset purchase agreement for buying a business. She offers way more than any other business attorney. She is even doing our payroll and business taxes. She is the one stop shop for starting a new business!

    - William

  • Cherissa was very attentive to my needs. I have spoken to multiple attorneys about my case, which was quite complex. She was the only one that seemed to have constructive advice, and spent time taking me through my options and answering my questions. Her staff was also excellent, and I always felt welcome and important. Very highly recommended!!!
