Completlely satisfied with their counsel during an extremely stressfull moment in my life. From their extensive education on my options and evolutions concerning my case, to the outcome. The glowing reviews were well founded. No high energy sales pitch and grandeous chest thumping. Straightforward, intelligent, professional counsel you can rely on.
I interviewed several criminal attorneys as I was facing a felony criminal charge. Mitch Sexner stood head and shoulders above the rest as he quickly grasped my situation during the initial interview--at no cost, of course. He went right to the law book and gave me his read on the statutes as they applied to my case. He quickly offered real hope and saw through the holes in the formal charges against me.
I was advised of their team approach to my case in that they would "put their heads together" to make sure I received the best counsel. The fees for their services were clearly explained and were in line or better than what I had been quoted by others. I thought it over for a few days and made my decision to hire them---although, in truth, I knew that day they were the right firm.
Owen Greenberg was assigned as my counsel. We had our initial interview within a few days. I was encouraged by the depth of Owen's trial experience and his knowledge of the criminal statue that applied to my particular charge. As I read the statute, I thought I was guilty of what was stated within it. It was Owen's vast experience in dealing with clients similarly charged that saw the nuance in the statute that would disqualify that charge from convicting me. He advised me that many Illinois statutes are similarly vaguely written and hard to understand.
Accordingly, he filed a motion to dismiss which was heard at the third court appearance. It was Owen's research of past cases that were dismissed along these lines, as well as his extremely professional and well organized presentation to the judge that caused the DA to re-file the complaint as a misdemeanor before the judge would have actually ruled to dismiss the felony charge outright.
Further, Owen, negotiated a plea bargain that very day on the new misdemeanor charge. I left the court that day--a great surprise to all---with a negotiated plea---that resulted in one year probation with psychiatric evaluation. No jail time. A far cry to the 1 to 6 year prison sentence I was facing.
Just before I left the courtroom that day, the Public Defender (who had observed the proceedings) that would have been assigned to my case came over to me and said, "You have the world's greatest attorney!" I doubt that she would have known about the nuance in the felony statute.
I should also note that Mr. Greenberg also was known and respected in the courtroom. He also knew well the characteristics of the "no nonsense" judge we were appearing before. That is why his demeanor and well-organized and concise presentation was so effective and well received.
Finally, there has been some additional follow-up in terms of the requirements of my probation, and they have been very willing to help out with that with no additional fee after the case had really been settled.
I am extremely grateful for all that they provided me---including respect for me as a person, even with shameful criminal charges against me. I have had 3-5 other attorneys over the years. None hold a candle to Sexner & Associates!
I went to Mitchell's firm with a problem with my driver’s license in Illinois. My case was assigned to V. Mary Baccom by Mitchell Sexner. Mary was very professional and on top of the case the whole way thru the process. Today my case was dismissed and nothing involving the issue is on my record.
I would like to thank Mitch and Mary for all the work they did. Mitch also worked with me on a payment plan to help make payments manageable.
I've used MItch Sexner and his law firm for more years than I can count and he's the best I've ever found. He's helped me with countless traffic matters and also helped my husband with his medical malpractice/products liability lawsuit as well (resulting in very large settlement). I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for experienced legal advice and successful results.
I had my misdemeanor case handled my Mr. Sexner and his associates. They were considerate, knowledgeable, and professional. I felt very much taken care of on my court date, which was important to me.
Mitchell Sexner his staff helped our family through a very difficult situation, in our lives. I know that without their representation the outcome of our case would not have been as favorable. I highly recommend law firm.
I was very satisfied with my attorney. He got all of my tickets dropped. It only took about 5 minutes for him to do so. Couldn't have had my hearing go any better.
I hired Mr Sexner to resolve my daughter's case of criminal identity theft. In every step of the process he and his colleagues were professional and proactive. They frequently updated us on the progress of her case and were very responsive to our needs and questions. I would highly recommend Sexner and Associates, they are professional, knowledgeable and efficient.
I was not aware of all the legal aspects for my son's case Mitchell S. Sexner gave me the facts! His firm along with his highly experienced and competent team of lawyers expressed their concern for each case. We faced a states attorney that did not want to budge on anything most cases that have a preliminary hearing are continued for a later date. Well the lawyer I had representing my son did just that she won the case for my son!! This lawyer made me feel that she really took interest in the case and did an excellent job!! Thank You Mr. Sexner and to all your team my son can spend Christmas with the family and not behind bars. This year has been a tough one for my Family I lost my dearest wife of 24-years to an illness lost my job also in the process. Then my son in jail there were a lot of lawyers available but God directed me to your firm and you did it! May God Bless you and all of your teams Families during this Christmas Season! Thanks Mitch you are the real deal no doubt about it.
Sexner and Associates represented me in a criminal-theft case. They were excellent.
They have in-depth knowledge of relevant law and lengthy experience with the court and particular judge where the case was tried. The judge had obvious respect for my attorney.
My attorney patiently explained the law and courtroom procedure to me along with possible options for how to handle the case under various scenarios. At each stage, the attorney made sure he knew what my goals and preferences were.
Fees were clearly described in writing. There were no financial surprises.
I highly recommend Sexner and Associates.
