In 2002 I completed an externship with the Cook County Public Defender's Office.  At the time I was still attending the John Marshall Law School but I obtained my 711 license which enabled me to represent clients while I was still a law student. 

 

After I graduated from law school and passed the bar exam I immediately went into private criminal defense and I never regreted it.  I have always found criminal defense work to be fun and rewarding.  My approach to criminal defense starts with an analysis of the allegations in the charging document.  I review the discovery and ascertain whether there is sufficient evidence to prove the allegations beyond a reasonable doubt.  May standard approach is to do a risk reward analysis with my client and help them decide whether they want to go to trial. 

 

My objective is the same in all cases.  I aspire to accomplish the goals of my clients.

Big Thank you!
I had three traffic tickets at once, and was in big trouble and found Mr. Stevens. Mr. Stevens is Sincere, professional, honest, strategic. Throughout the entire process of my case, he was super supportive, responsive and kept us informed. I've never been more happy with the result. Words couldn't describe my experience with his service. I will recommend to anyone who needs the service.

Simply the finest in North America!
Mr. Stevens does the following: 1. Wins Cases - Super intelligent 2. Returns calls in light speed (he has returned many of my freak outs about potentially going to prison.) 3. An attorney that is on his way to a judgeship 4. Reasonable price 5. Shows up to court, on-time and has an excellent reputation 6. Family Man 7. Honest 8. Decent I could go on, but, you get the point. I went to Northwestern. I had access to many attorneys and the latter's 'Rolodex.' I shunned the latter. I chose Mr. Stevens each time. At one point I enjoyed trouble. Although I no longer engage in such activity, I want to share my experience for the person who still does. Other attorneys use the 'bait and switch.' Lots of upfront talk and before you know it, the retainer is paid and off they go. Not Jason. If you want a fair resolution to your antics, with a tremendous amount of strategy, hire him. Thank you!

Best Attorney experience ever.
Jason was so professional from the first visit to our dismissal. He always made sure we were comfortable with the complete process of what was going to happen. I see why he has so many awards. We are so glad we hired this gentleman, we felt safe the entire way. Do yourself a favor and go for the consultation. You'll see what I'm trying to write here. He's awesome.

Absolutely Brilliant and Highly Knowledgeable Attorney
We took Mr. Steven’s help for a case and he has been immensely helpful throughout the process. His attitude has been always very positive. We have called and emailed him a multiple times but every time he has responded very promptly. We are so thankful that he got the case to be dismissed. We were really blessed to have him represent my case. If we ever need any legal help in future he will be the first person we will seek the help from. Me and my husband can’t thank him enough!

Impressive young lawyer
I have retained Jason on three occasions and in each instance he has executed his job flawlessly He is a relentless defence attorney that will fight for you until all options have been exhausted.. What I like most about Jason’s work is his ability to make sure you understand the process without sounding as if he is talking down to you. I was so impressed with his work that I had my Wife, sister in law and a close friend retain him as well. If you’re ever in a legal dogfight I suggest you retain Jason Stevens.

I can't thank Mr. Stevens enough!
I hired Jason Stevens to take care of an absurd battery charge against me. I was very uneasy about the whole process but his professionalism and knowledge quickly put my mind at ease. If he had not gotten the case thrown out, it could have dramatically changed my life for the worse. Thank you Mr. Stevens!

Trustworthy lawyer that knows how to help a client
Jason worked a DUI case for me. The proper steps were not taken by the State Police to charge me with a DUI. Jason presented my case thoroughly and the charges were all dropped. Jason works hard and knows how to represent a client. I'm grateful for the effort he put forth to win the case.

Great attorney
Jason was the ultimate professional in handling my case. He walked me through every step of the way, and prepared me for any obstacle I may have encountered. He worked with me on the financial end and kept me informed throughout the entire process. If I ever were to get in a jam, Jason is who I'd want fighting for me.

Wonderful attorney
Jason Stevens is a very professional and knowledgeable attorney. Our family was truly blessed to find him to represent our son! When a crisis arises where an attorney is needed a person sometimes does not have clear thinking! We were in panic mode! What I liked about Jason Stevens is that he brought a sense of calmness to our situation. After meeting with him, we felt very confident that he could help our son. He always responded to our calls and didn't make us feel like we were bothering him with something unimportant. Looking back I believe I called him with some probably not so important questions, but he never made me feel that it wasn't important. He cared about the outcome of this case and I believe he did the very best job he could to win this case! This was a very dark and depressing time in our lives and I can honestly say Jason Stevens alleviated a lot of that depression! If we EVER needed legal representation again I would not hesitate to seek his wise counsel The outcome of my sons case couldn't have turned out any better! As stated earlier we were blessed to find him!
