About me

Earl Vergara takes pride in helping people. In fact, Earl considers helping people that find themselves in trouble to be one of his greatest attributes. If you were to ask any client about Earl Vergara, the first thing they would likely say is that Earl helped them where they thought that help didn't even exist.

Earl is a listener. He understands the human plight, and recognizes the good in all of his clients. People who have had the pleasure of being represented by Earl come out the other side as better human beings.

Earl recognizes that hard work is necessary to get a case to 'turn the corner' and he is not afraid to do that work.

Earl has been successful in front of the judges in DuPage County, Kane County, Will County, DeKalb County, Cook County, the Justices in the court of appeals, and has even co-authored briefs for cases pending before the Illinois Supreme Court.

Earl has jury trial experience, is certified in field sobriety testing, and is well respected amongst his peers.
