  • Richard Joseph Albanese

    I have known David as an opponent when I served as a prosecutor for over a decade and now know him as a fellow defense attorney. David is not afraid to fight for his clients in court and I have seen him argue many successful motions. David is also well known for his trial skills arguing some of the most serious cases in front of judges and juries across Illinois. David knows how to evaluate a case and convey options to his clients.
