Criminal Defense & DUI

“Innocent until proven guilty”  — a nice concept, but unfortunately that’s not the way the legal system really works.  You need an attorney who will fight for your rights at every step of the way.

handcuffs I am an experienced and aggressive advocate who truly will work for you and your freedom!  I will not succumb to the system.  If you choose me to represent you in this time of need, I will strive to provide you with the highest caliber defense possible, investigate your case thoroughly, prepare aggressively for all hearings and trial, and successfully negotiate from a position of power.

My experiences and availability are wide-ranging, from juvenile matters to murder, and include all misdemeanors and felonies in between.    The following are examples of the cases I can successfully handle:

  • State or federal drug crimes ranging from simple possession to interstate drug trafficking.
  • Sex crimes such as child abuse or assault, Internet sex crimes such as child pornography or online solicitation of a minor.
  • Domestic violence cases, including charges of violating an order of protection.
  • Federal crimes including White Collar, Tax, Financial and Fraud.
  • Property crimes such as auto theft, burglary, criminal trespass or vandalism.
  • Probation violations.
  • Violent crimes, including murder, assault and weapons offenses.

Call me today to schedule a free initial consultation.  My firm will competently handle your criminal defense needs.


In Illinois, a charge of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a criminal offense as set forth in the Illinois Vehicle Code.

The penalties for DUI convictions are severe.  Do NOT take this charge lightly and DO NOT go this alone.  You need effective and experienced representation.   Call me or email me today to set up an initial consultation.

I have included a link to the Illinois DUI Law along with two very important pdf’s containing information about the DUI Laws and the automatic Summary Suspension of your Driving Privileges.  I STRONGLY recommend that you read all of this information, especially the ‘DUI Fact Book.’   It contains information about the recently adopted Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) , among other important information.
