    I am a past client of Lee Drizin, and reside in the State of Illinois. My case was complex due to a State of Nevada guardianship, where the Ward (my sister), was found to be neglected when she came to Illinois to visit me. My refusal to return my sister to Nevada prompted the necessity for legal representation from a Nevada attorney. I hired attorney Lee Drizin, who consistently responded to hundreds of emails, phone calls and written documentation, throughout a five month period. His immediate research of court documents, support, advice and his solid ethical foundation, brought my vindication from any wrongdoing and my sister's freedom from a ten year guardianship. Attorney Drizin listens to his client, responds appropriately and takes action. I knew exactly what was happening and why at all times. His tenacity follows the truth from his client, trust is established and ultimately rewarded with the finale of winning. Success resulted due to his every recommendation, careful execution and strategic moves, together with seamless teamwork intervention. Attorney Lee Drizin and his team earned five+ stars from this client. Cynthia
