You helped me stay sane and positive.


I just want to let you know how much I appreciate all your help throughout the last several months. Your willingness to meet with me on that Saturday morning back in December really means a lot. You helped me stay sane and positive. Thank you and all my best to you.

She is great to work with.

Liz (Ellis) helped me close on the land for a new home as well as the sale of our current home. She is great to work with.

I would highly recommend her and BG Law!

Thanks so much for helping me get through this issue

Dear Mr. Botto:

I received your letter regarding the reinstatement of my driving privileges, which actually arrived before the notice from the Secretary of State. And, yes, you are right: that was a long time coming. I think it helped that I always had readings of 0.000 on the said device and made sure to keep it operating properly.

Talso did take the driving written/vision/road test and passed that without a problem. I think that is the first time I got 100% on the written test in Illinois. Of course, I had taken two of them within the past four years for the restricted permit requests, so I had practice.

I just wanted to say Thank You for sticking with the case and keeping me informed all along the way, and even giving me a little prodding when I was being a bit slow to respond. (The previous attorney was not so great at communicating, incidentally.) I would have written earlier, but I've been busy on catching up on things that were put on hold since as far back as 2011.

Again, thanks so much for helping me get through this issue. Have a great year!

Botto Gilbert Lancaster has guided me and my family through some very complicated legal issues
"For more than a decade, law firm Botto Gilbert Lancaster has guided me and my family through some very complicated legal issues and has never left my side as I walked through difficult times. From simple traffic issues to felony defense proceedings, Francisco Botto has been our family attorney. While navigating the long road to the recovery of my driving privileges, Francisco, and his staff always seem to discover new ways to tackle the challenges posed by local and state agencies including the McHenry County Sheriff and Corrections office, the Secretary of State and local policing bodies. I never felt alone or without hope even when the road appeared too difficult to understand and maneuver. Francisco Botto diligently, and with the utmost professionalism and compassion, pursued the best possible outcomes and offered support, encouragement and sound legal advice. Nowadays, it is rare to find a firm that will continually come through for you; that's why I rest assured knowing that Botto Gilbert and Lancaster are my families attorneys."

Always in Touch
"I feel I had a good experience with Francisco. He told me the day we talked that it could be between 18% and 25% but would try for more and he hit in between and anytime I emailed him thinking he would reply the next day, he replied that same night so I could say it was good and everyone I know has heard about you guys."
- Bryan M., Workers' Compensation client

Very Knowledgeable and Thorough
"Mr. Ted Gilbert was very knowledgeable and helped me through my workers' comp claim. Kelly Lancaster is handling a claim against a ladder company. She is very thorough. I was very surprised to see she recovered the broken ladder and stored it in their building. I do not personally know Mr. Botto, but he is handling a matter for an associate of mine and he is quite pleased with him and your firm."
- Terry B., Workers' Compensation client

Best Outcome Possible for My Case with Mr. Botto
"I would like to thank you for helping me achieve the ultimate best outcome possible with my case. Also would like to proceed forward with the secretary of state hearing that could restore my driving privileges. I know the judge asked me to be as honest with them as I was with him, but feel under the circumstances I need to proceed forward with them regardless. Will be necessary to get those community service hours done as well as just moving forward from all of this."
