  • Matthew David Keenan

    I endorse this lawyer's work. If you are in trouble in a criminal case, Ruben is a great advocate. Ruben is highly professional, he works hard, and he returns calls faster than any attorney I have ever met. Unlike many others, Ruben also has a wide base of experience all across northern Illinois, and he commands the instant respect of prosecutors. Ruben has a great deal of trial experience and thinks well on his feet. He is not the sort of attorney to plea out a case if there is a reasonable defense. This attorney has my total confidence.

  • Ted Harvatin

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Ruben Sanmiguel and I have exchanged ideas on various DUI and related matters. He is very thorough and conscientious about protecting his client's rights. Ruben carriers the added bonus of being Spanish-speaking. The language barrier can hamper an accused's defense. I endorse him and also admire his web page.
