    Get your facts straight!

    Every time a somewhat bad review gets posted on here about Mr. Christensen all of a sudden four "great ones" appear within hours of each other on the same day. Seems fishy to me and Mr. Christensen your response to my review is bogus, my case never went to a jury trial. You might want to get your cases straight as well as your facts surrounding DUI law in the state of Illinois, I feel bad for the case that had to go to jury trial it went to bench trial with you I am sure they did not win either based on your track record. Now make sure you go and post some more solid reviews within hours of each other to save face. I feel really bad of your clients and future clients.

    A Thoughtful and Skilled Attorney

    I was stopped in Naperville for a DUI back in 2013. I thought I the world was ending. Brent stepped in and basically saved the day. He explained all the possible consequences, and advised me that he would do his very best to spare me the worst. He did. I probably deserved worse than I got, because it was an extremely dumb mistake on my part. Brent always kept my expectations realistic, but he was also confident in our chances of a good result, which we got. His explanations and expertise in these cases was encouraging and reassuring, and it was a pleasure to work with him. He even took another case of mine, on the fly, without so much as a second thought. Though it wasn't a DUI this time, Brent did what he had to in order to find out about the new issue and resolve it. His fees were very reasonable, and far far less than most of the other attorneys I consulted. The only 2 who were less expensive also seemed to be both newer and less concerned with explaining the possible bad outcomes to me in the beginning. In choosing Brent, I chose to pay a slightly higher price for the value of experience and understanding. I doubt any other attorney, for more or less money, could have gotten me the resolution that Brent did. For that, I am truly thankful.

    highly recommended

    Brent is very experienced and knowledgeable. Most importantly, the personalization he provides is very hard to find. You are not another number with him. Highly recommended!

    Excellent Lawyer

    Being arrested for a DUI is a terrible experience that I would not wish upon anyone. However, we all are human and make bad decisions, and we all have to deal with the consequences of these mistakes. If you do find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to face these consequences, I would highly recommend that you choose Mr. Christensen as your legal representative. His expertise in his field was invaluable to me, and I can not begin to thank him enough for his services. Thank you Brent.

    DUI

    Handled my case with knowledge and confidence making me feel at ease and getting me a not guilty of the charge of DUI. I would say I'd use him again, but I've learned my lesson. Definitely would recommend to friends and colleagues.

    Awful Experience

    I hired this attorney and wasted a lot of money. He in no way helped me with my case, I should of represented myself and gotten the same outcome in court, He was unprepared every time we arrived in court, he was reading the police report during trial for the first time and never watched the arrest video until the States Attorney asked him about it in court then he watched it on her computer in the court room for the first time, he prolonged the case for almost a year filing appeal after appeal. He is uneducated about all processes and procedures with a DUI Conviction, He told me so many things that were untrue in regards to my case. This guy is "slick rick" to a tee. He told me he had only lost one case and I have nothing to worry about. Bottom Line he did nothing for me, I did not have a good outcome and he did nothing in working with the States Attorney to help my case. I would not recommend this man to anyone, It was an awful experience and I spent alot of money for barely any legal counsel and he did not even offer any kind of refund after he helped me in no way with my case. Look elsewhere for legal counsel if you get a DUI. This attorney was awful and I am not sure where all these great reviews are coming from because he helped me in no way legally. Look elsewhere and stay away.

    Brent Martin Christensen’s response: “Because all cases are fact specific, results in criminal DUI jury trials do not always work out in the client's favor. Occasionally despite an attorney's best efforts in a DUI jury trial, a criminal defendant may be understandably dissatisfied with a jury verdict of "guilty.”

    Very happy I elected to use Brent's services after consulting with several attorneys. His genuine, straight forward approach made him a clear standout and was appreciated as he kept me apprised until my case was resolved.
    Brent was able achieve the best possible result, his expertise and experience with the County of Dupage, large contributors, for which I will forever be grateful.

    Knowledgeable and Respectful Services

    I used Brent on a recommendation and I am extremely glad I did. He always kept me informed of what was happening and what I need to do and took (almost) all worry out of my case. I never once felt that paperwork wasn't being handled properly or procedures being followed. Brent also works with each individual with the fees for his services. I would highly recommend him to anyone that happens to be in this situation in the future.

    Definitivly recommend

    I hired Mr. Christensen almost 8 years ago, and since then, he has represented me in all of my cases, as well as a few family members and friends. He is very personable and reliable. I am glad and lucky that I initially hired him, and glad that he is still my current lawyer. He has served justice for me many times, and that is the most important part of his job. He does it well.

    Great DUI Lawyer, Highly Recommend!

    To anyone who is looking for an outstanding DUI Lawyer, I would with out hesitation recommended Brent Christensen. After having the misfortune of getting a DUI I immediately felt better after our first phone call (on a Sunday) and one hundred times better after our first meeting later that week. Throughout the time leading up to my court date Brent was able to walk me through what would happen step by step, email me updates and keep me informed of new information as it became available. It was clear while at court that he had established good working relationships within the DuPage County and was able to take care of my DUI case in one court visit, with a great outcome. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with him, highly recommend!
