"She's passionate about kids and doing the right thing"

I have two children a seven year-old daughter and a nine year-old son. The case I had was a visitation and custody case in Will County. When I hired Masah she was able to get my kids and secure them immediately with an order of protection because my kids mother was keeping them and hiding them from me. What I wanted was to make sure that I make the primary decision for them as far as school, healthcare and extra-curriculars. And I wanted to make sure that they had certain standards and the lifestyle I envisioned for them, and my dreams came true in a short period of time. My kids live with me and have the same school and friends. Masah gets things done quickly, shes very aggressive and made sure that every court date mattered.

"I just can't thank her enough"

My daughter kept coming home from visitation with her father, saying that he was drinking and physically abusing his new girlfriend. And he was violent with me when we were together. It got to the point that she would cry every time she went over there. I didnt know what to do. Attorney Masah helped me and she fought really hard for me and my daughter. In the end my ex ended up with no visitation for a while and then he ended up with supervised visitation. My daughter was put in counseling and shes doing much better.
