COVID-19 Legal Services

Although legal services have been declared an essential service during this State of Emergency, we are taking all reasonable and appropriate precautions. Our staff and attorneys are working remotely, but we continue to provide legal services as people need them. We are still meeting with clients and providing legal advice through telephone calls and video conferencing. We are drafting documents and having them signed using electronic means when appropriate. We are doing remote real estate closings, remote signing of Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney. We are even offering remote mediation services for divorce and other family conflicts.

If you need legal services during this time of emergency, we are still here for you.

For Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney and estate administration, contact us here;
For divorce and other conflict meditation, contact us here;
For any and all family law matters, contact us here;
For bankruptcy, loan modification and debt issues, contact us here;
For business matters, contact us here.
For all other legal matters, contact us here.

Tradition on the cutting edge

Our roots go back to 1961 when Gilbert X. Drendel, Jr. joined the legendary Reid, Ochsenschlager, Murphy & Hupp law firm in Aurora. Gilbert (“Gib”) Drendel and several other attorneys left to form a new firm in 1981. Seven attorneys moved with him from Aurora to Batavia in 1994 and formed Drendel, Tatnall, Hoffman & McCracken. The Drendel & Jansons Law Group continues the same solid tradition, providing the same sterling legal services and advice to communities, businesses, business owners and their families in Kane County and beyond.


The Drendel & Jansons Law Group is committed to community, people, families and businesses. We work as a team, using the unique strengths and abilities of each member of our group of attorneys and legal assistants, to harness our collective knowledge, experience, skills, connections and relationships for the benefit of our clients. We develop relationships with our clients and focus on their needs, plans and goals.

We are diligent and responsive. We pride ourselves on good communication. We protect our clients; we provide sound counsel; and we work hard to obtain the best results possible in our areas of practice.

We value our reputation and relationships above all else. Trust is the hallmark of effective legal representation, so we work hard to earn it.

We combine the best attributes of the traditional, professional legal counselor while harnessing the latest technology connectivity the modern world has to offer to help our clients. 

We are honored, too, that our clients recognize our commitment.
