Read what some of our clients are saying about Waltz, Palmer & Dawson

“I would not hesitate to recommend Susan Dawson and WPD for their legal expertise and proven results when it comes to secured lending matters. I worked with WPD on a complex deed-in-lieu transfer involving a multitude of environment issues.  Susan’s personalized attention and ability to address complexity with a practical approach allowed the bank to quickly recoup its investment.  The quick-turn around and no nonsense approach to my secured lending matters made this process effortless.”

Connie Lavin
Vice President, First Midwest Bank

“I have been working with Susan Dawson of Waltz, Palmer and Dawson for over 8 years and find her professionalism and understanding of corporate law to be on par with any downtown firm.  She takes the time to understand both the client’s and bank’s perspective to ensure the transaction goes smoothly.  Additionally, I have engaged Susan to draft Covenant Waiver Documents when the waivers were complex in nature and needed legal expertise to protect the bank.  I highly recommend her for any legal needs I have when representing the bank or to be an advocate for a client I have referred to her for legal advice.”

Derek Wasilevich
Assistant Vice President
Beverly Bank & Trust, A Wintrust Community Bank

“We had the opportunity to work with WPD when our internal resources could no longer handle our litigation caseload. WPD jumped right in and handled the matter in a professional and efficient manner. Having now worked with big name and no name law firms, I would put WPD as a top recommendation for issues like this. The open discussion, timely responses and affordable manner have been unbeatable.”

Lauren Chana
Associate General Counsel
The Vitality Group®

“I would like to thank Susan and her staff for all the work they have done for AMPCO METAL. I have worked for some major companies, started and sold my own company and am currently CEO for AMPCO METAL. I have been in businesses for 38 years and have had many dealings with various law firms, none have been as pleasant and rewarding as working with WPD. Thank you and staff for all your support!!!! Looking forward to continuing our relationship.”

Mike Fisher

“We have used the expertise of Susan Dawson and others at WPD for quite a few years. She has been instrumental in guiding us through several difficult situations. Our experience with WPD has resulted in us referring them to our clients. In every instance our client has thanked us for the results generated by WPD.”

Bob Schutz
President, DSP Insurance Services

“In My Prior Role as Chief Financial Officer for a Multi National Private Family Corporation, I used the services of WPD. The onsite remote staff work, streamlining of forms, reviewing of contracts and my legal spending by subject matter helped me to redesign the legal department, with annual savings of more than $750k. It was a great investment for top “Tier” work and small firm prices. I highly recommend WPD.”

Katie Bylak
Chief Accounting Officer, Gordon Food Services

“I am so glad I hired Waltz, Palmer & Dawson. Nichole Waltz was able to achieve an outcome in my case that was nothing short of astounding.”

“Nichole Waltz represented me with unmatched expertise, professionalism and class. My case was very difficult. As an attorney myself, I knew that the odds of obtaining a satisfactory outcome in my case were very low. Thanks to the skill of Nichole Waltz, and the backing and legal resources of Waltz, Palmer & Dawson, the outcome of my case far exceeded what I thought was even possible.”

“We have been working with Waltz, Palmer and Dawson, over the last few years on various levels. Our experience has been one of excellent service, extreme professionalism and thoroughly developed legal advice. We have done various business acquisitions, been involved in many different legal issues and many employee needs, and at all levels, Susan Dawson and her team have been top notch. I would be so bold as to state that our experience has been better than some of the so called large law firms. We would firmly suggest that clients look at WPD as an option for all their legal needs.”

Frank San Roman
President/CEO Millenia Products Group, Inc.

“I have sent many clients over to WPD for complex business issues and estate planning. My clients have always commented how thorough the professionals at WPD are and they are always ecstatic with the service they receive. If you are starting a new business, need a corporate attorney, or are interested in estate work WPD should be your first call!”

        “My husband and I have a Will and a Trust but we had not updated these documents in over six years and a lot has changed. Millie Palmer reviewed our       documents and together we determined the changes necessary to meet our current and future needs. Millie asked us questions and provided information that helped us know what changes to make that were best for us. She is very knowledgeable in estate planning and is extremely personable, caring and sensitive to the needs of her diverse clients! We have recommended Millie to our friends too!”
