About me

A Chicago native, Mr. Fimbianti began he career in law enforcement when he became a police officer in 1990. As a police officer, he served as a patrol officer, tactical officer and detective. He also has received specialized training and served as a Juvenile Officer, Street Gang Specialist, Field Training Officer (FTO), FBI Certified Firearms Instructor, Accident Investigator, Defensive Tactics Instructor, Firearms Armorer and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-D). During his career as a police officer, he received over 20 police commendations, awards and distinctions for his service.

Mr. Fimbianti graduated from DePaul University College of Law in Chicago in 2001 and became an Assistant State’s Attorney in Will County. As a prosecutor, he handled DUI cases and felony offenses including murder, robbery, narcotics, and class X felonies. He also served as an ASA in the Grand Jury and Felony Review Section and worked as a felony narcotics prosecutor with the Organized Crime Unit. In 2005, he entered private practice as a senior partner in a law firm specializing in criminal defense, civil litigation, and family law.

In 2010, Mr. Fimbianti was selected by the United States Department of Justice to travel to southeastern Europe (the former Yugoslavia) as a contract advisor to the Republic of Kosovo and Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the Balkans, he spent 18 months assisting in the development of a practical criminal justice infrastructure and other essential Rule of Law institutions, with a special emphasis on enhancing the cooperation and teamwork among prosecutors and police officers.

Upon returning to the States, Mr. Fimbianti opened his own criminal defense and personal injury practice. His experience on all sides of the judicial system and abroad has afforded him a distinct perspective on the law. He ardently believes in the rights of criminal defendants as defined by the U.S. Constitution.
