My case was not a easy one, But you wouldn’t know that by the way Jason handled it from the beginning he found errors that weren’t submitted correctly by the police man in which I didn’t have to complete the two year mandatory suspension on my license. Once we finally got to trial Jason meticulously asked questions and detailed information regarding everything from that night. He found inconsistencies and mistakes that the officer made. We were found not guilty and I was so relieved didn’t think it would be that easy; Well it wasn’t but like I said Jason made it all seem that way!

Jason Kunowski
Jason Kunowski is an excellent lawyer. He handled my DUI in a superb manner. His knowledge and expertise of both the court system and the law was apparent from my first meeting with him. He was well respected by the Judge, court employees, and prosecutors. It is clear that when you hire Jason, you have hired a first class defense lawyer. Jason deployed a strategy which successfully led to a recission of my license suspension and a not guilty verdict at trial. Jason is an excellent communicator as well as a lawyer and kept me informed of his intended strategy throughout the process. This was a difficult period in my life and Jason shepherded me through successfully. There are many synonyms for Lawyers such as "advocate", "defender", and "counselor." These were not just synonyms for Jason in my case. He was my lawyer, advocate, defender and counselor throughout the case and he handled each role with excellence.

Efficient, friendly, competent
Retained Jason to represent me in an interstate DUI case. He was able to address the illinois issues and worked with counsel in other states to determine an effective course of action. In the end, we were able to negotiate an excellent outcome. Throughout the process he did a good job of communicating and providing recommendations regarding strategy.
