About Me

At my law office I make personal
service the top priority.  I handle Criminal, DUI and Traffic matters in
Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.  I have defended DUIs and Criminal
cases since beginning my legal career, successfully defending cases others said could not be won.  I have represented clients in Cook, Lake,
Will, DuPage and many other surrounding counties.  If you are looking
for a DUI lawyer or a Criminal lawyer in the Chicago area that has
extensive trial practice with DUIs and Criminal cases I'm your lawyer. 
It is my belief that even though most cases do not go to trial, they all
should be treated as if they were.  This way we can put you in the best
possible position to avoid not only jail but any other serious
repurcussions.  If you expect personal service and a commitment to
excellence at an affordable rate, stop by my office or give me a call.
