I just got back from a bench trial. My daughter filed charges because I reprimanded her for acting foolishly. Attorney Kent laid out the case for me, told me exactly how it would go down and what the results would be. He was right on every count. I was acquitted!
We were before a female judge. Knowing she would be sympathetic to my daughter, he was very gracious and even tender when cross examining her. At the same time, he didn't pull any punches. Although I got a lecture from the judge, she had to dismiss the case because it had no merit.
Scott did a great job and I would recommend him highly.

When I was pulled over and charged with my second DUI, I was terrified. My first conviction came from when I was freshly 21 and quite stupid, and I've always regretted that decision. This being my second scared the living daylights out of me. I had no idea what would happen in the future, how this would affect me, or what kind of consequences there would be - but I knew if it was anything like the first time, I was in for a long, painful process. I was referred to Martin & Kent by a family friend and Scott immediately put me at ease, and took all (er, most) of the worry off of my shoulders and onto his and Tim's. Unfortunately, if you're ever in this kind of situation, there's no way you'll feel better until it's all said and done, but it's a great feeling to know you're not alone anymore. I didn't call any other lawyers because he gave me the reassurance and piece of mind I was looking for. Also, in terms of costs, they are in line with any other attorney in the DuPage area. Trust me - I went with a cheap lawyer the first time I needed to do this, and it did not turn out well. After my initial court hearing, Tim Martin (Scott's partner) said he'd like to bring it to a bench trial - which was great! I actually had a chance to beat this thing! This past Friday, Scott joined me in court for what turned out to be a four hour trial, and continuously impressed me. He argued about things that I would never have begun to think about. I understand that this is his job, and something he knows how to do very well, but you'll never understand the level of thoroughness, intelligence and fight in Scott until you see him working and fighting for you. When I have gone to court in the past, and even at the trial, everyone in the room makes you feel like a non-human. The states attorney, judge, and everyone else present will often look at you and judge you as a criminal. When I had Martin & Kent with me, there was finally someone who believed me and stood up for me. Throughout the process, I was honest, punctual, and polite as I could possibly be, which helped my case. As long as you can fulfill your duties, they will come through for you. I ended up being found not guilty for the DUI charge and was only given a speeding ticket and court supervision - which Scott even brought down to only 6 months! I can not express how thankful I am for his expertise and persistence. Scott and Tim, you're both fantastic at what you do! Thank you!

I was in a bind and needed help from a lawyer. I called many lawyers, even some who were recommended, only to be told that the charge I had could not be lowered. I called Scott and he immediately called the prosecutor and I had the court date within a week. Scott reassured me that it would all be taken care of and it was. Don't waste your time calling anyone else if you need help. Scott will make you feel at ease and he will get the job done for you.

I had a difficult case for Scott Kent and wasn't sure if he could provide the best case scenario. Not only did I avoid jail time but he was able to get me the reduction from a felony to a misdemeanor. This was my second felony reduction and this doesn't happen everyday. The fact that he took the time to meet with the district attorney personally on my behalf meant a lot. He works very hard for his clients and I'm extremely happy with the outcome.

I had been faced with a DWI charge and also a misdemeanor for possession of a controlled substance. I hired Mr. Scott Kent as my attorney to represent me in court. Mr. Kent handled my situation excellently. He not only won my trial to get both charges dropped due to illegal search, he also won my trial to get the breathalyzer removed from my vehicle. I highly recommend this attorney. He is extremely educated in the criminal judicial system and was very straight forward with me and the possible outcomes of my case. He was also very prompt with this case and was able to close this issue within 6 months and let me get back to my life before the DWI. I can't thank him enough for that.

We were in a very difficult situation with our son and were referred to Mr. Kent. He was extremely knowledgable about the problem we faced and was very confident about being able to obtain the best possible outcome for our son. In the end we had a better resolution than any of us expected. Mr. Kent was very friendly and helpful through the entire process.

Having contacted several firms, I found Martin & Kent to be the most approachable, professional and understanding. Scott Kent provided legal representation and advice, both Tim Martin & Scott Kent, handled my case with compassion and a personal understanding that put me at ease. I would highly recommend both these attorney's if you want a firm who you can trust .
