Main Areas of Practice

SSI and Social Security Disability benefits

Attorney Susan O’Neal has successfully represented hundreds of claimants, applying for or denied for SSI or Social Security disability benefits. She has taken cases all the way to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.

Child Welfare, DCFS, Juvenile Delinquency, and Various Orders of Protection/No Contact

For over 30 years, Attorney Susan O’Neal has fought for family preservation and reunification, and for people to be protected, yet receive the services they need to succeed and thrive, independently of government oversight like court wardship, DCFS guardianship, or probation.

Mental Health and Defense or Discharge of Guardianship

If you have a mental illness and are involved in any type of court case, you need an experienced attorney like Susan O’Neal. Also, if someone has filed to have a guardianship appointed for you or you have a guardian and believe either that you no longer need one, or are being exploited by your current guardian, again, you have the right to your own attorney. The GAL or guardian ad litem is NOT your attorney.
