Having Attorney Teeter, by my side, through an extremely difficult divorce and custody case has been a life saver.

I definitely recommend to anyone, needing a divorce or child custody attorney.

Abena AG., Rockford, IL (2023)

Attorney Teeter deserves many more stars!!! He is a great Attorney! I had fired my previous attorney who did a really poor job with my case and a friend recommended Attorney Teeter for a consult. He quickly gathered all the information I needed, gave me a lot of pointers to help me make a good representation in court. I went back to him multiple times and each time, he was patient, attentive and gave great direction which triggered a good outcome on my case . He truly shows that he cares about you and your case.

Then in 2021, without hesitation, I called Attorney Jim Teeter Jr when my marriage just wasn’t going to work and again, he was extremely supportive and flexible with me because my marriage turned unsafe, and Jim was genuinely caring. I NEVER had an issue with not able to reach Jim he is easy to reach and flexible with your schedule.

Kelly L., KS (2019)

I have worked with Jim for many years. He is very reliable, honest, and straight forward. I highly recommend him.

Bette M., Janesville, WI (2018)

I started out with a different lawyer who in my opinion didn’t take the time to know or understand my case from the next. Ultimately I didn’t think he would use the law to obtain the best results for me. I switched to Mr. Teeter who responded to my questions in a very reasonable amount of time either by phone or via email. While Jim has no control over the decisions of the judge he made sure I got a fair deal. He took the time to explain the long-term and short-term effects of decisions that needed to be made. It turns out what I thought I wanted and what I really needed were two different things and Jim’s firm guidance helped me see past the emotional roller coaster and view the big picture. Ok sure, I did have to buy new pots and pans, but I also won custody of the dog!

Jon E., (2017)

This is the second time that I have had the pleasure of doing business with Rockford Family Law, and more specifically, Mr. James Teeter.

Mr. Teeter did exactly what he said he was going to do, when he said he was going to do it, and how he said he was going to do it.

Jeffrey, Rockford, Illinois

My divorce began as a simple matter at first which Jim took great care to keep things simple and keep costs at a minimum. After I was divorced for a year or so, there arose a custody dispute. As a father, I was already facing a difficult battle for custody. Jim found many ways to ensure that my custody matters were handled in a way that kept the best interest of my son in mind. Jim knew how to approach the issues faced by fathers pursuing custody and did a great job keeping the case on track and focused on the best interest of my son. Jim is a very thorough attorney and takes the time to do things right the first time. Ultimately, I was awarded full custody. Thanks Jim!

Robbie, Saint Louis, Missouri

Me and my daughter are extremely grateful to Attorney Teeter! My case was a tough one and many attorneys were hesitant because of the complexity of my situation.

I felt like I was his only client and that he was genuinely concerned about the outcome.

Thanks to Jim my daughter and my relationship is much more secure, and we can keep building our close relationship. All the best.

Guy, South Beloit, Illinois

I was in a long-term marriage, but my wife and I wanted a simple peaceful resolution. I just needed an attorney to protect my rights and get the ball to the end line without upsetting our relationship or the deal my Wife and I agreed upon. Jim did a great job for me. He explained the law, corrected errors the other attorney put in the agreement and refined the agreement as we had agreed upon; but did not upset the “applecart” or our relationship. Jim followed my directions well. I got what was fair without a lot of arguing or wasted legal fees. I didn’t even have to go to Court. Jim took care of all that for me. Jim, thanks for following my directions and wishes. Jim did a good job and didn’t interfere with our agreement. Thanks again, Jim.

Janet, Beloit, Wisconsin

I knew my divorce wasn’t going to be an easy one. My husband had been married before and was pretty clever at protecting his interests. I would recommend Jim Teeter if you are going through a divorce for several reasons. Jim always responded to my questions and concerns promptly. He was very easy to reach by phone, email, or text. Jim took the time to explain my rights to me, and then fought for what I wanted. His assistant was also very warm and welcoming, and I appreciated him putting us at ease. Jim knew the law, how to negotiate and strategize to get the best deal he could for me. Jim also followed through with my case and honored his commitments to me. Jim thanks for getting me through the divorce and on with my life! Many thanks.

Jay, Rockford, Illinois

I have a spotless reputation and have never been in trouble. I was very upset and scared when I was served with a Stalking No Contact Order and I didn’t know what to do. The smartest thing I did was call Jim Teeter. Jim guided me through the process, explained the law, and relentlessly defended me and my reputation. I am so glad I hired Jim.

Kim, Roscoe, Illinois

This was my first marriage. It was a very emotional time for me. My husband made promises as far as how we would deal with the debts and dividing up the assets. When things started to shift and my husband’s attorney just wouldn’t be responsive, Jim came through for me. He got tough when I needed him to be tough, and on top of that Jim explained my rights carefully to me and then respected my decisions. Jim, Thanks for being there for me. You can count on Jim Teeter if you are going through a divorce! Thanks again, Jim.

Brad, Chicago

I am happy with the results of my case, and would highly recommend Mr. Teeter to anyone going through a divorce.

I am a mother of a young infant who means the world to me. I was in a state of shock and panic when served with divorce papers, and what that would mean for my child and me.

He listened to what my needs and concerns were and acted swiftly to protect us. Mr. Teeter was very accessible to me by texts, phone calls and even on the weekends. Thank you so much Jim.

Jeff, Rockford, Illinois

I am really glad I hired Jim Teeter to represent me in my divorce. To be honest I generally don’t like attorneys, but Jim was different. I actually like Jim and recommend him every chance I get. He treated me respectfully and aggressively fought for my rights. He was always very responsive to me and kept me well informed on the status of my case. There were several times that he made himself available to talk to me on weekends. Jim really helped me with the stress of my case and got me good results. Thanks for all you do Jim!

Jared, Loves Park, Illinois

I am really glad I picked Jim Teeter to be my attorney for my divorce. I was married for many years and had two children.
