"I was very impressed with my condo sale and appreciated your expertise every step of the way. I truly felt like I was in good hands although we’re 1,500 miles apart. Thank you for reassuring me and guiding me through that process. You did all the heavy lifting while I continued traveling for work."

"My goal from the very beginning was to negotiate a fair settlement agreement with my now ex-wife. Needless to say, agreeing upon what is fair when it comes to divorce is never easy. And yet Ava was instrumental in negotiating a settlement that was genuinely fair. As my advocate throughout the process, Ava, always had my best interests in mind. But more importantly, she helped me better understand fairness in the eyes of the court. She encouraged me to trust in the innate fairness of the law itself. Apart from Ava's ongoing advocacy I would have agreed upon a less than fair settlement, a settlement I would have lived to regret. Thanks to Ava that did not happen. I could not have had a better lawyer advocating on my behalf. If you are looking for an attorney who is fair, honest, and a great communicator of the law you would do well to choose to be represented by Ava!"
"Thank you very much for your time, patience & dedication to the Sale of 2135 W. Augusta Blvd. Your prompt response to very significant matters at hand truly complimented all efforts. We could not have done it without your assistance!"

"Ava has been my attorney since my divorce was filed in 2009. She's always been very professional, prompt with responses, respectful of everyone involved and direct which I appreciate.
I trust her judgement and her knowledge of family law. I've always felt that the advice given was in the best interest of my kids (priority one) as well as myself.
Having someone of her caliber fighting on my side during such a difficult time and putting out fires whenever they have come up throughout the years has been such a relief. I couldn't have hired a better lawyer.
Ava, you have my deepest gratitude."
"I'd like to express my sincere appreciation to Lupe Aguirre for the professionalism and composure he exhibited in handling two very difficult and complex real estate transactions. Last year I entered into a §1031 tax-deferred exchange. Using the proceeds from the sale of a four flat, I purchased two rental properties. To defer taxes, the IRS requires that those purchases must close by an absolute date without possibility of extension. Additionally, both my lenders and the sellers had set their own stipulated time limits. Lupe, working with all parties, made certain that deadlines were met and the funds from the sale were delivered by the intermediary to the closing without a hitch. Through it all, he was knowledgeable, responsive to my questions, attentive to the details, and aware of the timelines - never a fire drill. He kept his cool throughout, and I couldn't be more satisfied having Lupe as my attorney."

"Mrs. Touloupakis was highly recommended by a circle of friends who all have had nothing but great things to say about her! She was there for me and my family. I have nothing but respect for Ava and her legal expertise and abilities with every positive outcome she has represented us.
Ava has a vast amount of knowledge and knows exactly what course of action to take for my situation. There was no such thing as "legal road-blocks" or "curve balls" because Ava has the solutions. When you have someone as professional, thorough, organized and as well versed as she is and on your side, you know you have the absolute best representation possible. Ava is PROMPT, KIND and UNDERSTANDING each time that we use her for legal services. She takes the time to listen to me, and my family's legal needs. In return, she consistently AND respectfully always advises and/or explains to my family and I what our legal options are and how to proceed moving toward our goal successfully. Then, she takes immediate action to represent our case and expedite it according to the law.
Legal situations are frustrating, stressful and difficult to go through but if you have the right representation, your worries and concerns are nonexistent. Ava is very respectful and made me feel comfortable during the entire process. She is trustworthy, fair and cost-conscious. She truly cares about her clients and keeps you aware of every possible outcome. She is experienced, knowledgeable and astute, attentive, just and reassuring. She plans ahead by devising and implementing long range strategy and has contingency plans. She promptly returns calls and emails. Even when I was out of state, she made sure she kept me up to date with the whole process, clear and concise with her words, so there was no confusion on the progress of your case."
"Lupe Aguirre helped me in 2021 with administering the process from contract acceptance to closing the sale of a particularly challenging investment property in south Chicago. There were multiple complicating factors in play. These included my inability to travel from my home country of Japan due to the Covid situation, my status as a foreign investor, and the detailed process necessary to have documents notarised remotely from the US embassy in Okinawa, Japan. Having never gone through these processes on US real estate before and not being on the ground in Chicago, I was somewhat nervous. Lupe’s excellent bedside manner reassured me at all times, and everything went smoothly - to my great relief. I would not hesitate to work with him again."
