Steven is honest & hard-working and his knowledge of the law is superior.A pleasure to work with no matter how complicated the situation. I was lucky enough to work with Steven. I always found him to be looking for ways to do the best results for his clients.Steven always responded quickly and used his detailed knowledge of the law to provide service to his clients. His superb client service is evidenced by the number of both his repeat and referral clients (the ultimate compliment to a businessman). I myself, have referred many friends to him as I know he will give them a honest and educated response or solution to their situation. Steves "can do" attitude coupled with his high integrity & industry knowledge is a winning combination!

I am a former client who was facing decades in prison for a criminal charge sexual assault 3 counts. I am here to tell you Steven Fagan saved my life. I had went through 3 lawyers before finding Steve. I went online searching for the best attorneys in Illinois and found Steve. After reading the reviews online I knew he practiced dui and criminal law, but is superb in dui. I figured if he's that smart in dui, he would also be smart in criminal cases to. My theory was right he is a smart attorney and works on behalf of his clients. The case came down to forensic science. Well Steve learned everything he could about DNA in a very short period of time, because the case was already set for trial when he pick up the case. He brought in the best expert witness to testify on my behalf. He cross examined the states attorney expert witness challenging every hole in their case. He was able to do this by spending hours of learning how DNA works. This case was semi - high profile case. which was heard by a jury. The states attorney office brought in one of their best special prosecutor. I'm here to tell you Steve is one of those lawyers you can trust will defend you no matter what the charge is, and will give a 100% effort. I was found not guilty by a jury on all 3 counts. I also faced a DUI which was heard by a judge. Steve knew more about DUI stops and the police training in dealing with DUI stops than the police who testified against me. The DUI was dismissed. Steve is one of a kind attorney he saved my life and will save yours if it's possible. THUMBS UP, AND I GIVE HIM 5 STARS AND MORE. THANKS STEVE

I cannot say enough good things about Mr Fagan and his partner Mr Davis. Without going into too much detail about my case, I can say that I was facing a very grim outlook. Charged with a felony that is almost impossible to defend, these two gentlemen were the glue that kept me together and assured me they could help. They kept their promise. My charges were dismissed completely. The fee was very fair. They kept in contact with me throughout my ordeal. Showed up to court on time. True professionals. I have used other attorneys in the past and quite frankly wouldn't trust one at all. These guys are the exception. Not just because my case was dismissed but because they honestly cared about their client. I strongly recommend this firm!

I was amazed at Steven's professionalism, knowledge and determination. He is well informed about DUI law and will fight for you and your rights. I was an out of town driver that got pulled over for speeding and running a red light. Eventually the officer arrested me and charged me with DUI.
After several months and a few court appearances we went to trial and won. No DUI, no court supervision.
I would recommend him and his law firm to anyone in IL.

Steve was had a great combination of intelligence and personality. His knowledge of the law was only overshadowed by his ability to work the court room. My only regret is that I did not get to see him litigate in front of a jury. The artistry of his work allowed me to accept a plea agreement that was in my favor.

I am from Wisconsin and was in a fender bender in Chicago and received a â€œMust Appear in Court Citation.â€
Since I was unable to go to court in Chicago, due to work requirements in Wisconsin; Steve petitioned the court and was able represent me in my absence; and he got the charges dropped!
All of this was done in a professional, caring, and affordable manner.
I would recommend Steve for anyone that needs his assistance.
