JOHN ASHENDEN provided me with SUPERIOR REPRESENTATION, in an Eminent Domain case detailed below. I found him to be an EXCELLENT COMMUNICATOR with me (his explained everything quite well...not just "Lawyer Talk") and provided me with the BEST advice and counsel possible. Recently he has advised me in two completely different matters and I found him to provide the same OUTSTANDING service. He has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION...you could not employ a better lawyer!!!
John Ashenden came highly recommended to me by a financial advisor. I was not familiar with legal issues concerning estates. John helped me through this devastating time in my life. John was very knowledgeable and made the process seamless for me. I am very grateful for his expertise and friendship. John's professional, down to earth nature comforted me when I needed it most. I knew I was in capable hands.
I would highly recommend John from my previous business experience with him.

I work in a public guardian office in Nevada and we contracted with John for a legal matter in Illinois. John is very knowledgeable about trusts, real estate, and civil litigation. He is aggressive, persuasive, and persistent. All his pleadings are articulate and his logic is precise. He is a hard worker and will get you the outcome you are looking for.

EMINENT DOMAIN (Summary): The Village of Hodgkins VS Robert Frank Mance
As a "gift" to this Airborne Combat Veteran, on Veteran's Day, in October of 2013, representatives of the Village of Hodgkins voted to take my property known as "Mance"s Pub and Hotel" under Eminent Domain. Four generations of the Mance family have lived and operated businesses in Hodgkins. I DID NOT WANT TO SELL MY PROPERTY. The village of Hodgkins offered me LESS THAN HALF OF THE property's worth, took me to court and engaged me in endless negotiations regarding even more insulting low monetary offers. John Ashenden through successful negation, was able to get me the compensation I wanted. There is no doubt in my mind that he will do the same for you.
