My staff and I have been serving the counties of DuPage and Cook for years, concentrating in Criminal and Traffic/DUI Defense.  I have kept this entry simple and to the point. 


I like to speak to people in person rather than tell people "how good I am" over the internet like some attorneys do.  If you are looking for an attorney to tell you what you want to hear, just because it is what you want to hear, please look elsewhere.  We can't help you.  If you are looking for a catchy slogan or fancy artwork, I encourage you to keep searching.


However, if you are looking for a firm to give you its all, to not back down from a challenge, and to go toe-to-toe with the government nonsense, you've found the right firm.  The State has highly skilled attorneys, why shouldn't you?  Give us a call and set up an appointment for a NO CHARGE in person consultation to provide a more in-depth analysis of your case.

Loyal and dedicated
Matt was always available and accessible to me . I felt he really knew the law. He did what he said he would do and got it done when he said he would. Even if the judge made a mistake and found me guilty in the first trial; Matt didn't give up and fought back until he proved my innocence. The end results after a long case I was found Not guilty from criminal charges. False acusations that were created to damage my reputation in a 3 years Custody battle of my precious son such false accusation were fabricated by my ex and her boyfriend. I would recommend Matt to anyone.
