He is the best defense attorney in the area
Steve represented me in a work related case and was amazing. He took his time to research every aspect of what was needed and when it came time to have our hearing he was quick, consume, and most importantly we won! I’ve used him for a few things and he’s always won, been prepared, and is a consummate professional...

Best Trial Attorney in Illinois
I found this site and I had to respond. Mr. Landis IS the real deal in court! Best attorney I've ever seen, fast and smooth on his feet! Very confident, organized, and unbelievably well prepared! It will be obvious to you immediately that Mr. Landis does a ton of trials. I was going to plead my case out, but after he showed me the State's case, and the law, I followed his advice and went to trial. I was shocked when he won my first case without me even having to say one word in court! His cross exam of the police officer intense! He won my second and third cases too, and even got my license back from the Secretary of State! Since then I have referred four friends to him and he also won their cases too, even in different counties! He is absolutely honest. NOT tricky or slick, just super professional and an excellent strategizer. He is hard to get a hold of during court hours, but I gave him an Excellent on the Responsive section because he always calls you back quickly, and he responds to texts almost immediately. One time he even went to the police station for one of my friends at two in the morning, and got her out without any charges at all! He is expensive, but he is AWESOME! Worth evey penny because he wins!

Crimnial and Expungement
Outstanding knowledge. Very customer and client oriented lawyer. Stays in touch and returns phone calls promptly. Likes to schedule legal matters with the court at earliest convenience and thus my matter came to a conclusion very rapidly. Top rated person, honest and forthright.

Has Gotten Me out of a Pickle several times
Steve is a VERY smart man and great talker. He's saved me a lot of money in tickets and more expensive legal fees! The only thing I think he needs to work on is faster communications and follow through with clients
