We have also successfully petitioned for the expungement and sealing of a variety of criminal offenses.

Chicago Defense Attorneys

Our criminal defense practice extends throughout Illinois and Chicago including Cook County, Lake County, and DuPage County. Our attorneys will aggressively defend your case through pre-trial motions, bench or jury trial and, where necessary, post-trial motions. When a trial is not in our client’s best interest, we can strategically negotiate favorable plea agreements, to minimize the disruption a criminal charge can create in our clients’ lives. Effective and meaningful negotiation skills can often be just as important as litigation skills.

We understand that every case is different and every client has unique needs, which is why we provide a tailored approach to legal representation. Your concerns and priorities help guide the important decisions that must be made throughout the legal process.

I wanted to let you know that I finally got my license back today. I want to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. You did an amazing job and helped another person turn their life around. I will forever be indebted. Rest assured that I will refer anybody that I hear is in trouble to you guys. Thank you again. All the best. M.M.
I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the success in getting my charges reduced. It has been a rather traumatic experience for me. Though I try to keep an optimistic outlook, it didn't seem possible. But you guys pulled it off and I couldn't be more grateful. This has been a great weight lifted off my shoulders. D.F.
I would like to take this time to thank you for a job well done. I received my full reinstatement documents today for full driving privileges. This took me by surprise. I did not expect to see the results this fast. I just want to say that I am blessed to have a very good lawyer like yourself to guide me through the process... I am very grateful. You're the best. Thanks again. G.B.
My special thanks for your help, guidance, and support during a most difficult time. You came recommended as "the best" and you lived up to your reputation! I wish you a lovely holiday season and a new year of challenges overcome, new joys experienced, and much fulfillment realized. All good thoughts your way. S.S.
I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
