Client Testimonials
  • ​​I wholeheartedly trust and recommend Attorney Ross Secler for Chicago real estate. I am a Realtor and have done multiple deals with him. In the fast paced real estate world Ross takes the time with each client to make sure that their needs are met, they are comfortable and understand the attorney review process fully. In sometimes stressful situations he is level headed and respectful while being firm for his clients, which is a hard balance to find in an attorney. When I send clients to Ross I am relieved to know that he cares for my clients as much as I do and wants nothing but the best for them. On the Realtor side of things it is much appreciated that he keeps me in the loop throughout the process, meets deadlines, doesn’t let things slip through the cracks and still finds time to call and check in to make sure we are all on the same page. You’re the best Ross!

  • “I contacted Ross after ballot access challenges were filed and, in a very short time, he was able to create a comprehensive plan to win. Against all of the odds, he won before the Electoral Board and in state court. Ross gave us the attention and time we needed and we are very grateful for his work.”

  • “I cannot begin to thank Ross and Deborah more for their work with my campaign. Their diligence and personal attention to my case made sure that we beat the ballot access challenges brought against me. Their attention to detail allowed me to focus on the important issues in my district, instead of legal challenges. I should have come to Ross sooner! I will be seeking his advice before any future campaign.”
