About me

I am a criminal defense attorney. I believe that my clients are presumed innocent until the government overcomes that burden beyond a reasonable doubt. I believe the system of criminal justice must be forced to recognize the rights of criminal defendants and their obligations to due process for that system to have any integrity.  I believe it is essential to treat my clients with respect and dignity and protect them from the abuse of power. This is all I ever wanted to be and all I ever will be.

    I've known Mr. Kasperek for 20+ years as a lawyer. He stands up for and stands by his clients - period. A great courtroom advocate that is not intimidated. I strongly would recommend him as a Defense Counsel.
