  • Jason Blake Stevens

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Joseph Agnello since he was my editor on the John Marshall Law Journal. His former experience as a prosecutor allows him to practice law with a unique insight that leads to favorable results for his clients.

  • Emilio Moretti

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Agnello for well over a decade. I have gone up against him when he was a Cook County Prosecutor, and I have worked with him on matters when he went into private practice. To this day, he is one of the most knowledgeable and prepared attorneys out there. He has earned, and maintained the respect of his peers; often referred to as "a lawyer's lawyer". I have often turned to him for advice, and I never hesitate to refer a case to him, because I know the client will receive excellent service and representation. Most importantly, as good of a lawyer as he is, he's even a better person. That is why I endorse this lawyer.
