    Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer

    If you or a loved one were arrested or are being investigated for a crime, it is essential that you hire a skilled, diligent, and determined Chicago criminal defense attorney to ensure a successful outcome. I have successfully helped hundreds of accused individuals in and around Chicago. I protect the rights of my clients inside and outside the courtroom. My job is to be your personal advocate and defender. Contact me to discuss how I can help.

    Exceptional Representation

    When you retain my services, I begin by scrupulously reviewing the evidence and carefully considering your options. I will continue to aggressively advocate for you until we have obtained the best possible outcome. In every case, my goal is to secure a reduction or a dismissal of the charges -- or, if necessary, an acquittal at trial. I will be by your side every step of the way, whether we are contesting unreliable or improperly obtained evidence, or tactfully pursuing concessions from the government to obtain a favorable plea agreement.

    Were your civil rights violated?

    Law enforcement should be held accountable for purposely violating your rights. If you suffered excessive force, false arrest, or an unlawful search and seizure, we can seek compensation for egregious police misconduct or abuse.

    Time is of the essence when it comes to criminal charges. You need to act quickly to avoid or minimize the severe penalties and collateral consequences that invariably follow the charges. I will do everything possible to help you overcome this always stressful and often life-altering experience.

    Helpful Tips From Me To You

    How To Properly Exercise Your Constitutional Rights
    • What You Should Do
      • Be respectful.
      • Calmly record the interaction.
      • Ask if you are free to leave. If you do not ask, the officer may think - and the judge may agree - that the interaction is consensual.
      • If you are free to leave, go! If you are not free to leave, do not answer and questions before speaking with your attorney.
    • What You Should Not Do
      • Do not physically resist arrest.
      • Do not become aggressive or confrontational.
      • Do not consent to a search. The Constitution does not apply if you consent.
      • Do not answer questions without first speaking with your attorney. Police are allowed to hold you for 48 hours and they may lie to you the entire time.
