Always Ready With Insight, Diligence And Strategy

As an experienced Chicago criminal defense lawyer, my strengths include listening skills and responsiveness. My clients depend on the personal contact and clear guidance I provide through all phases of a case. My clients also benefit from my:

  • Familiarity with courts and officials in the Chicago area and throughout northern Illinois, which I gained over the course of more than 25 years practicing law
  • Ability to investigate and evaluate all documents, forensic evidence and other material relevant to the case
  • Ability to use technology to manage information and mount the best possible defense
  • Experience in plea negotiation and mitigation of sentencing, backed by the proven ability to argue cases in front of a judge and jury
  • Clear flat-fee structure, which covers everything from plea negotiation to trial and more
