  • John Louis Fioti

    I endorse this lawyer. Ruben and I were adversaries in Cook County Criminal Court when I served as an Assistant State's Attorney and he served as a Public Defender. Ruben was always a great advocate for his clients, very knowledgable about the law and criminal procedure and also very professional. I have seen Ruben in court numerous times over the last twenty years and he is consistently a great attorney to have on your side. I highly recommend him.
