The Right Fit in Rockford

Tracy Jones, Attorney and Owner at Black & Jones, has been representing the people of northern Illinois right here in her own backyard every day for almost two decades. She is driven by Black & Jones’ mission to support each and every individual as best as she can, and her team always makes sure to do what is right by you and your family.

Big Firm vs. Right Firm

We hear it from our clients all the time: a bigger law firm isn’t always the best fit. In fact, we’ve even heard testimonials that Chicago attorneys couldn’t do what we’ve done for their cases in less than half the time.

Rockford attorneys have a reliable reputation, and that’s why many of our clients seek the best possible local representation. At Black & Jones, we advocate for you 100% of the time, so you don’t have to go through the process alone.

It’s Our Mission to Help You

Clients who start with a big national or Chicago-based law firm often believe they’ll get something bigger and better—only to find out they are just a case number at those places. Then they come to us at Black & Jones to find it’s the complete opposite.

At Black & Jones, we hear you. You are treated with respect and given the attention you deserve. We’re here to provide justice by protecting your rights—and the rights of your family.

When something has gone wrong in your life due to an accident, injury or disability, you can feel stressed, confused and—worst of all—isolated. We do everything we can to put those feelings to rest and to make sure you feel like you’re fully taken care of.

From the moment you make the first call, we’re here for you, through the whole process.

At Black & Jones, you don’t get passed around from person to person, as you do at other firms. You don’t have to re-tell your story repeatedly. We listen to it the first time around, and always find the most appropriate steps for you to take next.

Our Unique Way

We give you our undivided attention from the very beginning. From the moment you work with us, you and your case are given full support by the same attorney and team.
