A lifesaver
When I hired Mr. Camic, I was depressed, hopeless, and scared. I was young, had already had two prior attorneys on my case, and had consulted upwards of 20, not really sure what to do to protect my rights and my future. Mr. Camic stood out in his understanding of relevant case law to my unusual situation that led to felony battery charges, and knowledge of the various parties in the system. From the initial consultation, it was clear that Mr. Camic wanted to work to help me get my life back on track, so I could pursue my life aspirations that I shared with him. On top of that, Mr. Camic was very realistic and honest about the handling of my case. He took the time to explain the pros and cons of different approaches, and broke things down in a way that I could understand and relate to. He always took the time to respond to my many questions and concerns as things progressed. Many attorneys who I talked to pushed going to trial, so they could in turn charge ridiculous rates. Mr. Camic is not one of those attorneys. His rate was extremely reasonable, and he truly had my best interests in mind. Mr. Camic has the ability to find the good in people, even when they are in bad situations; and by seeing the good in me, he was able to get me placed into a diversion program. I will soon be able to have all of the charges against me dismissed and expunged, which will be a huge weight off my shoulders, as I build my career and my life. My future is bright, thanks to his hard work. EDIT: He has saved me again, cases expunged and I am left with no record whatsoever! Not only that, but he worked to get it done as quickly as possible, so I would not have to worry about anything negative lingering. David Camic gave me so much hope. I would hire him again in an instant, though I hope I never need to. If you need a skilled attorney who will believe in you and care about you, hire David Camic.

Excellent Attorney for both traffic and criminal
David Camic has been my “go to guy” for everything related to traffic and criminal cases. Camic has handled Felony Drug cases, minor and major traffic cases, misdemeanors and a few other criminal felony case for me. He’s always taken the time to go over all my options with every case and charge and I love how he doesn’t sugar coat anything and tells you exactly like it is. He always returns my calls in a timely manner and has never missed or even been late to a court appearance. I have recommended him to dozens and dozens of friends, colleagues/associates and acquaintances and will continue to do so until he retires!!

achieved best outcome in 3rd dui case
David Camic was fantastic! In illinois, a third dui is a felony. Somehow, he got it reduced to a misdemeanor!! I had to serve 45 days in the pokey but it was worth it to keep a felony off my record. I have no idea how he did it, but he did it. I sincerely thank you, Mr. Camic. My life is normal again!

Very educated, experienced courteous lawyer who produces terrific results.
In 2012, I had the misfortune of being involved in a minor car accident that was my fault. I was charged with a failure to reduce speed ticket, a prescription drug DUI and a DUI cannabis. After my arrest, I was very worried, confused, disappointed and all around upset for weeks following the arrest. A family member recommended Mr Camic. After my free consultation with David, I left his office feeling much better than I had felt since the arrest. Mr Camic constantly kept me informed about the status of my case throughout the process through letters in the mail. In the end, he was able to get the failure to reduce speed ticket dismissed, the prescription drug DUI dismissed, the cannabis DUI reduced to a Wreckless Driving charge and he got my drivers license suspension rescinded. He even wrote me that this was a better outcome then he originally expected. I would highly recommend Mr. Camic to anyone and I recently referred him to a friend of mine who ended up hiring Mr. Camic to represent him.

Knowledgeable and honest attorney
Mr. Camic is very knowledgeable of the law and how it works. He is honest and "keeps it real". He always took the time to accept my phone calls and explain to me everything going on with my case. I recommend this lawyer!
