  • TYPE OF CASES OUR FIRM HANDLES
    I have successfully tried over 300 cases to bench and jury trials including dui, drug cases, sexual assaults, murder and various other criminal and traffic cases.

 

  • WE THINK YOU SHOULD HIRE US IF:
    You want a lawyer who will personally handle your file and will be available for consultation afternoons, evenings and weekends. I will fairly evaluate your case and determine the most favorable course. I will not hesitate to go to trial the decision however will ultimately be yours.

  • OUR FIRM IS NOT RIGHT FOR YOU IF:
    You are looking for a lawyer who will only tell you what you want to hear. I will work with you to honestly assess the facts of the case.

  • IF YOU WANT TO TELL OUR LAW FIRM ABOUT YOUR SITUATION YOU SHOULD:
    I personally communicate whenever possible. I have my cell phone with me 24 hours a day so you can always call me. If you get a voicemail I'm likely in court or with a client so leave a message and I will call you back as soon as possible.
    My office phone is 630-654-8333 or email

  • THE TYPICAL COST TO GET US TO START WORKING ON YOUR CASE IS:
    The cost varies depending on the allegation and facts of the case. A fee will be quoted at our initial consultation.

  • OUR CLIENTS WILL TELL YOU THAT:
    My level of experience, knowledge of the law, and personal familiarity with the judges, prosecutors, and system is a great advantage. In addition my personal and regular contact with clients, availability and involvement with every aspect of the case bring the most favorable results.

  • OUR PHILOSOPHY ON HOW WE APPROACH  OUR CASES IS:
    Depending on the type of case I like to find out as much as I can about the facts of the case and talk to anyone who can help our defense. At that time we can discuss our options. The stronger our defense appears to the prosecutors the better our chances of getting the case dismissed or a favorable plea agreement.

  • OUR BEST RESULT IN A CASE WAS:
    I have successfully tried all levels of criminal and traffic cases including murder and received repeated not guilty verdicts. I call those cases where my client had the most at stake my best results. No criminal lawyer "specializes" in defending one type of case but I have also received good results for clients that had other very serious charges such as criminal sexual assault, armed robbery, drug trafficking, and serious dui charges

  • OTHER LAWYERS THINK THAT WE:
    I have consistently received the top ranking for ethics and legal ability when ranked by other lawyers and judges. My top ranking came from an anonymous survey of judges and lawyers which adds credibility to the ranking.

  • SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT US THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING A LAWYER:
    I have lived in the Chicago area my whole life. I received a full scholarship to the University of Illinois for grades, caddying, and financial need. I was given a lot so I try to give back by working to help others get scholarships to high school and college. I am on the board for the Daniel Murphy Scholarship and the Evans Scholarship.

  • IF YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FIRM YOU SHOULD:
    During our free initial consultation I will answer any questions. Please call 630-654-8333
