About me

I have been a licensed attorney in the State of Illinois since 2003.  I began my legal career as a an Assistant State's Attorney in the County of Kendall, State of Illinois.  In 2006I opened my private practice and have successfully represented hundreds of clients in matters ranging from criminal defense to various family law issues, including divorce.

I have a unique perspective in criminal defense from my experience in criminal prosecution.  I believe that in order to successfully represent client's in criminal and family law matters one must know what the available options are, have a very thorough knowledge of the applicable law and be thoroughly prepared.

    I have known David Lee since he was working in my firm while he was going to law school. I have known David long enough to assure that he is not only first-class in terms of his work ethics and diligence but his natural intellectual curiosity strives him to be an outstanding attorney year after year. It has been my utmost privilege to have known David as my intern, my lawyer colleague and my friend.
