Steve Thomas
Attorney at Law


I am a solo-practicing attorney working out of my home office near Monticello, Illinois. I am able to give my clients and their legal needs the personal attention and flexibility not usually found in larger law firms, at very reasonable rates. For qualified clients I may even work at no charge.

And unlike most lawyers, I am available evenings, weekends and holidays.

When you call me you get me, not a secretary or assistant. If you have to leave a message because I am in court or with another client, I will call you back the same day if possible, otherwise within 24 hours.

Much of my work is in family law. I am on the list of approved mediators and guardians ad litem in the Sixth Judicial Circuit. I also represent clients in a wide variety of general civil matters, criminal defense, bankruptcies, and estate planning (wills and probate).

I believe my greatest strength is helping people work out their disputes by means other than going to court, saving them vast amounts of time, money, and anxiety.

ANNOUNCEMENT: I am planning to run for Piatt County Resident Circuit Judge as an independent in the November 2020 election. See the "Candidate for Judge 2020" page on this website, or email me at
