I was very impressed with the services I received from Steven Haney. My case was a class 2 felony and lasted over a year and during that time he always returned every single call the same day to answer my many questions. He was honest with me and did not beat around the bush with his answers. He isn't about telling you what you want to hear, he is about telling you the truth and the facts. Mr. Haney made sure that I was informed of everything that was going on every step of the way during the duration of my case. During the trial of my case I was very impressed with the way he fought for me and did everything he could do to give me the best possible result. I am very thankful that he was recommended to me and I would highly recommend Steven Haney to represent anyone who is in need of a great attorney for a criminal case. He showed me that he truly cares about his clients through his integrity, honesty, diligence, understanding and compassion to help those in need.

I made some huge mistakes and found myself in a world of trouble with felony charges. Thankfully, Steve took my case and after many trips to court (because prosecutors could not decide what to do) Steve secured probation without any formal charges being entered ("a 410 probation") This is the absolute best outcome I could have gotten and I am forever endebted to Steve for securing it for me. He is well known and respected in this legal community and that counts ALOT when the decisions that decide your fate are out of your hands. He is a genuinely nice guy who genuinely cares about his clients, and he has the knowledge, experience, and respect to get the best of possible outcomes. I hope neither I nor my family will need a criminal defense attorney again, but if anyone does, I would only send them to Steve Haney. In my humble opinion, he is the best.

I have known Steve for many years and handled many cases against him when I was a prosecutor. Steve was always a tough and intelligent opponent. He is also a lawyer of great integrity. He is a good choice for a Joliet criminal defense lawyer.

It is a frightening thing to be charged criminally. The right criminal defense attorney makes all the difference. Knowledge, experience and wisdom are critical in obtaining the best result. In all these areas, Steve excels. What sets Steve apart from other competent Will County defense attorneys, is Steve’s ability to not only obtain that “best result,” but also his commitment to thoroughly communicate with his clients all of the possibilities and choices in their particular case. While no defense attorney can waive a magic wand and make the charges go away, with Steve, the client can rest assured that they will not only receive the best representation, but that they will be fully informed from beginning to end.
