LAWYER AND LAW PROFESSOR.

I have had a trial practice since 1993, handling commercial disputes, estate contests, emergency litigation, appeals, and criminal defense in federal and state courts in and around Chicago, and throughout the nation. I have won many valuable settlements, judgments, and jury verdicts in civil cases, as well as numerous verdicts in favort of the defense where the plaintiff got nothing and aquittals for clients accused of criminal offenses from judges and juries. I have obtained numerous favorable results in appeals to reviewing courts, including the Appellate Court of Illinois. I have been admitted to practice in Illinois and Maryland since the early 1990s. I am admitted to numerous federal trial and appellate courts, as well as the Supreme Court of the United States. I have taught as a law professor at Northern Illinois University. I teach from time to time as an adjuct professor at Aurora University as well.

Lawrence Allen Stein Attorney Recommendation
Atty. Stein of the prestigious law firm, Huck- Bouma, Wheaton IL. was retained to represent a defendant in a criminal proceeding. We were very pleased that all charges were dropped as a result of his thorough and responsive representation. Of particular note he has the ability to think and act clearly and decisively on his feet in the courtroom. Criminal proceedings by nature are very serious but Atty. Stein has the unique ability to put some levity in these matters. Atty. Stein is a fighter in the courtroom and I would highly recommend him for representation in criminal proceedings.
