McNamara Phelan McSteen, LLC


"Having worked with Tom Polacek, I would recommend the law firm of MacNamara, Phelan and McSteen. As one could expect Tom was knowledgeable and very good at laying out the challenges that were before me. He was also very kind and genuine as I expressed the grievance I had with my former employer. Careful not to get my hopes up, Tom encouraged me throughout the process. That encouragement helped me feel vindicated in bringing suit in the first place. Having been turned away by another attorney, I can honestly say I was satisfied with the outcome of my case."

"Tom Polacek handled by bodily injury claim. At our first meeting Tom gathered all my information, and he totally took it over from there. Throughout the process Tom and his staff did a great job communicating on a weekly basis. My case was closed in a timely manner with great results. Over the past 5 years I have hired Tom for other things also. His firm has helped me with real estate closings (Brian Cichon) estate planning (John Rossi) and I have referred people to (Ray McSteen) for help with divorces. This firm will continue to handle any and all things I need help with."

"I was in a very unique situation and had my driver’s license suspended for a whole year due to a misunderstanding where a police officer thought I had a fake ID. I was told by countless other lawyers in the area that deal with license suspensions that they have never heard of such a situation, that I had no case and that I would be wasting my money trying to fight the (in my opinion) wrongful suspension.Todd took on my case with optimism and no judgement. He was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He helped me through the process of a formal hearing at the Secretary of State’s office. Best case scenario, we were hoping for my year long suspension for a fake ID to be changed to a 3 month suspension for underage drinking. I ended up getting my license back and not having to serve a 3 month suspension either. My expectations were absolutely exceeded and I highly recommend Todd as a legal representative."

"I am an attorney who came to Todd after I was arrested for a DUI and speeding. Working with Todd was a pleasure. He was responsive and I never had to worry about when court was or what he needed from me. I was always informed. As an attorney, I knew my case was not going to be easy which is why I wanted to find the best lawyer I could. Enter Todd Polito. Both he and his firm have an incredible reputation both statewide and in Will County. Long story short, my case was successfully dismissed. Additionally, Todd was extremely helpful with non-court related matters including working with the Secretary of State and potential employment issues regarding my arrest. Put simply, you can’t do any better than Todd Polito. His knowledge of the law and his relationships with prosecutors and judges is invaluable."

"Tom Polacek handled my case in an extremely competent and professional manner. His efforts to reach a prompt and fair settlement is greatly appreciated. I will gladly recommend his services to my family and friends. I also want to thank Susan for her hard work."

"Attorney Tom Polacek's skill and expertise were invaluable in the handling of the mountains of medical bills and other paperwork which were the result of a car accident! Attorney Polacek was honest and fair and told us what to expect every step of the way. Because of his knowledge in dealing with auto accidents, Attorney Polacek was able to negotiate a fair settlement for us without having to go to arbitration. We will forever be grateful for his help."

"Attorney Tom Polacek and his staff handled my personal injury case with professionalism and the knowledge I needed to get through a tough journey. He kept me informed and updated on all issues in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Tom to my friends and family in need of any legal advice."

"This was our first experience with a personal injury attorney. Tom Polacek and his staff were easy to contact and easy to work with. He always kept us updated on the progress of our case. All decisions were made after we either had an office or phone consultation with Mr. Polacek and he always thoroughly explained all of our options to us. Mr. Polacek is very professional, honest, respectful, easy to work with and helped us bring closure to our situation. We highly recommend Tom Polacek and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again if needed."

"Unfortunately, we had to use Tom on multiple occasions due to some personal and delicate situations. Tom took the time to explain and ensure all of my expectations were realistic. Both my wife and I view Tom as a friend now, he has the unique ability to dissolve the "Lawyer" stereotype and just would get it done for us. A true pleasure to work with."

"Tom Polacek was fantastic in handling our car injury case. He gave us realistic expectations and didn't make promises he couldn't keep. He was totally ethical, competent, and genuinely wanted to help us with a relatively small case. I was very satisfied with both the process and the outcome. His assistant Susan was just as professional and pleasant, too".
