Tomiko L. Ballard
The first thing that stood out to me about Ms.Ballard is that she genuinely wanted to gather all of the facts surrounding the case and was very forward with the fact that she would not take on a client if she didnt fully believe it was in the best interest of the child. That made me feel not only that her moral compass was facing north but that she truly cared about her clients and her job. Ms. Ballard was on my case immediately fighting for me. She kept me informed throughout the whole proceedings and confirmed with me before filing anything. She was a blessing to work with and went above and beyond all expectations.

Tomiko brought peace to our family during a difficult custody case. We rarely had to coach her on what to say or do at court dates, she already knew what was in our best interest. She had the knowledge and courage to stand up against my spouse's ex and always had a strategy in place. I wish we only found her sooner! Thank you for everything Tomiko!

After years and years of falling short with lawyer after lawyer from everywhere from Chicago to Rockford, Attorney Ballard is the only one that was able to get me RESULTS!! She is good at what she does. I only wish I would have found her sooner so I could have saved my son. Attorney Ballard understood my situation and exactly what I was going through, what I wanted and what I wanted to get accomplished. At times it felt like she could read my mind because she would get things done without me asking! I live out of state and for the first time in the last 18 years of going to court, I was as stress free as could be even on court dates because I knew she was taking care of it. I definitely recommend Attorney Ballard.

I hired Tomiko about 4 years ago for child custody court. She was very good and had a ton of knowledge regarding my situation. She handled everything in a timely fashion. I would recommend her to anyone going through child custody any day.
