About Me

My name is Dennis F. Dwyer. I am a Bridgeview and Chicago attorney who practices in the areas of criminal defense and DUI defense.  I represent clients in both criminal trials and criminal appeals. When your liberty is at stake, you need an attorney who will aggressively advocate on your behalf. As a former prosecutor with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, I have tried hundreds of criminal trials, including several jury trials, and handed several criminal appeals.
