About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

I am criminal defense lawyer Brian J. Mirandola. I served as an assistant prosecuting attorney in Kane County for more than seven years, where I prosecuted hundreds of DUI cases and other misdemeanors and felonies. I understand the prosecutor's strategy.

I was also a member of the criminal defense team at a large local law firm for nearly two years, where I learned that handling case files as they land in your in-box is no way to provide effective, honest criminal defense representation. That is why I opened my private solo practice last year.

 

I started law school with a dream of practicing exclusively in the area of criminal law. It is what I believe being a lawyer is all about — helping people through their time of serious legal need. After nearly a decade, I remain committed to that challenge.

Great Legal Advice
Counsel Mirandola provided me with sound legal advice a few years ago in regards to criminal law. I appreciate his professionalism, knowledge, and commitment to the law.

Highly Reccomended
Highly recommend his excellent services for any legal representation. Outstanding, extensive experience and very dedicated with the upmost proffesionalism. Consistently reliable, insightful, honest with true knowledge of how the court system works. Top notch professional, very responsive , very caring as well , patient , explains everything in detail. Also got my bond reduced from 250k to 100k and was able to bond out and therefore enjoy my liberty and freedom to enjoy with my family and start my journey on the road to redemption and uplift myself as I fight my case.

Excellent
I hired Brian to assist with expunging some old criminal records and I could not be more happy with how he handled my case and the outcome! Brian was professional, very responsive and explained everything in detail. Thank you for your excellent service and ensuring my case went so smoothly!

Unprofessional
Paid him $600 as down payment, my case was dropped never went to court only made a couple of phone calls wouldn’t return any money. He yells at you like your one of his kids very no morals and greedy that’s my opinion

Less than satisfactory
Very unsatified with the services provided. Missed court dates due to Brian giving wrong time, he did not proactively discuss all options and consequences so I felt completely blind sided with outcomes. Did not feel he was a strong advocate in my favor. Would strongly suggest looking elsewhere for legal counsel/issues.
