Location:Glen Ellyn, Illinois
I am a former DuPage County Felony Prosecutor with over twenty years of criminal law experience. As a former felony prosecutor and defense attorney I have handled all types of cases including; Class X Delivery, Reckless Homicide, Aggravated D.U.I., Possession of Controlled Substance, and Murder. During my service as a DuPage County Prosecutor, I handled over 5,000 felony criminal cases and successfully tried several hundred Judge or jury trials to verdict. As a felony prosecutor, I was promoted to Special Assistant in the Major Crimes/ Narcotics Bureau and handled Class X drug charges. I am also a former Village Prosecutor and have prosecuted numerous local criminal charges for the municipalities of West Chicago, Wood Dale, Roselle and Maple Park. I have firsthand knowledge of how the government builds a case against an accused person (and where the government is likely to go wrong with its case). I have the necessary legal experience that few defense attorneys can match. I bring my experience to my criminal defense work as I know how to identify and evaluate weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and how to get the best result for my clients.
My trial skills and success rate are highly regarded within the legal community. My success has been noted in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times and Daily Herald. I am the recipient of the American Jurisprudence Award for Trial Excellence and I am known for my tough and aggressive representation.
I understand the fear, anxiety, and stress you are experiencing. That’s why I take every case very seriously. I (rather than a young associate) will personally work on your case to ensure you get the best legal representation you deserve.
My main office is conveniently located in Glen Ellyn at 800 Roosevelt Rd. (Route 38), Building B, Suite 110, just one block west of 1-355. For your convenience, I offer evening and weekend appointments and I will discuss your legal matter with you for free. My fees are very competitive and reasonable. All major credit cards are accepted. Payment plans are available upon request. Call me today for a free consultation at (630) 479-7100.
