Linda, and her firm, are compassionate and hardworking. Family court is a challenge. She provides support and expertise during the entire process. If you want results, you need this law firm! I will be forever grateful for her dedication to my case. I admire her passion for justice. She is the best lawyer central Illinois has to offer.

Linda is exceptionally honest, trustworthy, thorough and serious about her clients and firm. Her expertise and professionalism go above and beyond, as she truly represents with your best at heart. I spent two years with Linda and not only do I highly recommend her, but would personally hire her a million times over. All these years later and I remain indefinitely grateful for Linda’s guidance and representation.

“We laughed, we cried, we laughed some more.” Linda and her team worked tirelessly on my case; always quick to offer an empathetic ear and give honest expecations for outcomes. Watching Linda in court was awe-inspiring. She left no stone untrurned and we did actually share a few laughs along the way.

Linda is hands down the best family law lawyer. She will get it done and she will fight and advocate for you and your child(ren)! Wouldn’t go with anyone else but Linda Watson and the team at Watson Law!!!

    Watson Law clients enjoy an unprecedented level of access to both the lead attorney, Linda Watson, and her staff. Not only do our clients get Linda’s personal cell phone for emergencies which may arise during the case, but our law firm has a live text line that is monitored Monday through Friday 9-5. Our clients find it convenient to text the firm with any questions they might have or appointment needs which allows Watson Law to research the most accurate information for them and text the client an accurate and informed reply. Our clients also enjoy a client portal which they can access day or night via the client portal app on their smart phone. Personal attention in today’s tech world.

    Local Representation:

    Linda was born and raised in central Illinois, so she not only understands the local laws and courts, but she is also dedicated to the community.
