About me

If you want to get to know me, take a look at what my peers and my former clients say about me.  For example,  Mr. Eugene Lee on Linkedin said:


“My recommendation for Ken Alpert can be summed up in one simple word…EASY. He’s easy to talk too, makes your case easy to understand and turns the most uncomfortable and confusing ordeals into easy to deal with situations. If you’re looking for a lawyer who uses an abundance of legal terminology, impossible for anyone without a law degree to understand and that generally makes you confused and unsure of your situation, you’ll be able to find plenty of those in any internet search. For a straight forward, goal ordinated, results driven lawyer, call Ken.”

    I endorse this lawyer. I first met Ken when he was a Cook County States Attorney. He was always well informed about the law, conscientious, and very fair in his views on how to handle each particular case on a case by case basis. Ken is now a defense attorney and he brings that same intelligent hard working ethic with him every day. I had the pleasure of being a co-counsel with Ken on a recent felony trial and he was very well prepared, articulate, and excellent in his trial practice. I highly recommend Ken to anyone looking for an honest, hard working attorney to represent him or her in their particular case.
