| Hired Attorney
DUI
Mr. Sowa's considerable amount of experience and professionalism were obvious from our initial meeting and throughout his dealings of my case. He did an exceptional job of explaining every part of the process before it happened and answered all my questions sincerely and to a point of my understanding. Not only did his experience and professionalism help guide me through dealing with a very serious DUI case but ultimately resolved it above my initial expectations. Mr. Sowa was highly recommended to me. And I would highly recommend him to anyone, including friends and family. He is the attorney you want at your side.

Felony Defense
I engaged the services of Glenn Sowa on December 2010 on behalf of my 19 year old son. My son was arrested and charged with three class X felonies and because of Illinois mandatory minimum sentencing, my son was looking at potentially a 30 year plus sentence if found guilty of the charges. Glenn Sowa discussed all the details with my son and we also enlisted the services of a private investigator to look into other aspects of my son's case. The final outcome of the case was that one of the charges was dropped and a second charge was reduced and a plea deal for 7 years of which my son will only serve 3 and 1/2 years. Glenn Sowa is well known by all prosecutors and well respected by associates within the defense attorney arena and in the counties that he works within. He is a wealth of knowledge and is quick to respond via phone or email at anytime and extremely tech savvy. He has an attention to detail and will discuss all possible options with his clients. Mr. Sowa is of impeccable character and I would highly recommend his services for anyone facing an criminal charges.
