Early 2017 my younger brother was arrested for drug charges. He was facing a class X felony for the delivery of a controlled substance. After interviewing a couple of lawyers my family and i decided to go with Steven Haney. The reviews on here don't lie, we read some reviews and decided to contact Steven because of his expertise in drug cases and his knowledge and contacts in the will county judicial system. From the get-go Steven never sugar coated anything letting us know exactly the type of charges my brother was facing. He told us the absolute worst case scenario but at the same time told us the best outcome we can hope for. Throughout the court hearings he kept us informed and returned phone calls, emails and texts professionally. I'm happy to say that we got the best outcome for my brother. He was facing up to 6 years in prison for his class X but Steven bought the charges down and got him on probation for 3 years! I cannot thank him enough for everything he did for my brother and my family. He literally gave my brother another chance at life.. If your facing criminal prosecution in Will county, Steven is the guy you need to call.

We hired Steven to handle a criminal case the state had against our son. From the very beginning he was extremely honest, even if it meant hearing what we didn't want to hear. He worked very hard on the case and was able to work out an amazing deal for son. Our son avoided some really harsh penalties for some really stupid stuff he did. In the end our son is able to go on his life path and succeed in his goals. None of that would be possible without the hard work Steven put into the case.

With Steven you know you are getting the best representation. He is honest and knowledgable about the options you have and how the judge is going to respond. You can tell when he walks into the courtroom that he is very respected by his peers. He had me in and out of 7 court appearances in less than 30 mins each time. The most important thing in a case can be your attorney's relationship with the DA or ADA, and Steven has a great working relationship with the state's attorneys. This was a huge factor in getting the decision I needed for my case. Trust me when I say a deal is a deal with Steven; when you hire Steven Haney you get more than what you pay for. He was always willing to meet/talk with me when I had any questions or concerns. Thanks again Steve!!

Mr. Steve Haney & Associates,
When faced in the public eye of a criminal investigation, you have no clue what to do. You are stuck in the corner of a room and a million questions are being asked all around you. Most, are coming from within yourself. Steve went above and beyond in my case to provide the best defense that I had. Truly, I had none; but he made sure that the processes were legal and that I understood of the processes. I still live with my parents, and like any parents—they were worried sick about their child. He not only walked me through the processes, but made accommodations for my parents as well. He was straight-forward, attentive and always returned your call within the matter of minutes. He not only told me in a straight forward nature what I needed to accomplish in order to receive probation, but my chances of receiving such outcome. My case was one of his shorter cases in the subject matter, however he secured a dedicated plea agreement for probation. He was able to speak with the prosecution to the extent to prove I was not a threat in any regard while serving my sentence in the community. Trust me, facing the possibility of seven (7) years in the Illinois Department of Corrections scared the living hell out of me. Although he was able to secure probation for me, make sure you actually accomplish what he wants you to do—character references, awards from past accomplishments, as it truly maters when facing the worst days of your life. When facing criminal prosecution, Steve should be your first and last call when trying to secure a favorable outcome. Trust me, Steve was not my first call, but he for sure was my last call—and I am absolutely grateful that I found his law practice.
With this, I appreciate everything that you have done for my family and I. You have truly and ultimately given me a second chance in this life and I will always recommend your services in the future.
Thank You Steve.

I hired Steve after researching many attorneys. Steve was up front, honest, and knew his legal options. He will not lead you down the wrong path and he stayed the course and got me probation. He fights for his clients and even after the case is now closed, he continues to treat me with respect and dignity. He is a class act and above all a good person. I recommend Steve to anyone. His staff is top notch, and so is Steve

On Oct. 7th 2010 I was arrested and falsely accused of murder. As a police officer I thought something like this could never happen to me. Branded "the honeybee killer" by the media, I was in a nightmare and couldn't wake up. Steve and his partners came to my defense immediately and after a brief meeting knew I could not have done this and took my case. Working 24/7 to prove my innocence I was soon exonerated thanks to this man. His tireless commitment to fix an injustice saved my life. There is decency and filth in the criminal justice profession and he took the filth to task and rescued me. I cannot speak high enough of this man and anyone that needs help should call him first and get him in your foxhole. His many years working as a prosecutor serves him well as a lawyer as he knows what should and shouldn't be and can pick apart any case brought against his clients. Class act and a true professional. St. Mathew 5:6 "God blesses those who thirst and hunger for justice, for they will be satisfied".

I was depressed and truly didn't want to live anymore after talking to some other lawyers because of the crushing reality of my circumstances. I found Mr Haney in total desperation online at night and emailed or voicemailed him. He called me the next morning and I was in his office at like noon. His promptness and then talking to him and getting a preliminary plan together took a huge burden off. I told him what I wanted to achieve, based on my faith in the Lord, which the others I talked to would have scoffed at, and he not only didn't laugh it off but went to work to make it happen. After a long drawn out season of uncertainty, though I was clinging to the Lord, Mr. Haney accomplished everything I saw with my eyes of faith. I told him early on he's God's man for the job and he was. My Pastor, who is a licensed mediator and works around lots of lawyers was extremely impressed with Mr. Haney's professionalism, knowledge, complete familiarity and ability to explain the choices and make recommendations for difficult decisions in a very difficult system that is designed to crush you without mercy. If you're in a legal battle don't think you can do it yourself or settle for someone cheap; I had those thoughts but in retrospect i did the right thing hiring Mr. Haney. One last thing...trust the Lord! He said you would have tribulations...but that He would carry you through them.

I was arrested for DUI and immediately called Mr. Haney the next day. He was promptly responsive, listened to my story, and was able to break down every possible scenario for me. Throughout the whole 7 month ordeal, Mr. Haney always kept me in the light and laid out all the possible outcomes clearly. His extensive wisdom of the law is evident and it allows him to command any courtroom he is in. In the end, I was acquitted of the DUI and only faced minor charges. Mr. Haney will never guarantee any outcome, as every case is different, but he will fight with the utmost vigor to give your case a favorable decision. Personally, he is an astute man, yet very personable and very easy to talk to. I recommend Mr. Haney completely; you will definitely be thanking yourself later for choosing him.
