    Former Prosecutor and Assistant State's Attorney fighting for the rights of those accused of Criminal, Traffic, and DUI/DWI offenses.

    15 years

I am a former prosecutor and Assistant State’s Attorney in Cook County, IL, one of the largest prosecutorial offices in the world. As a prosecutor and Assistant State’s Attorney, I earned a reputation for persistence and toughness while having drive, compassion, extensive legal knowledge and prolific courtroom skills. With the same veal and vigor that I had as prosecutor, I now use to represent those accused of crimes. As a criminal defense attorney, I am dedicated to ensuring justice and due process for the accused. I know how a prosecutorial office works and thinks and how a case against an accused is put together. I have prosecuted, at the trial or appellate level, cases ranging from murder to DUI. I have tried hundreds of bench trials and jury trials and I have argued in front of and have been published by the Illinois Appellate Court. Quite simply put, I know how you got into the system and I have the knowledge to get you out. That experience is why those accused of crimes turn to Jaleel Law P.C. for their criminal defense at trial and on appeal.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

Thorough and Personable
Omar provided me with thorough preparation before attending an informal hearing. Being my first time using legal counsel, Omar made me feel comfortable and confident throughout the troublesome process to reinstating a driver's license. Omar is an easy to talk to and experienced lawyer that won't disappoint.

Outstanding legal representation that prevented my son driver license from being suspended due to a serious traffice violation that was unduly polarized against us. The attorneys experiences and expertise was truly an asset that payed dividends and prevented a disasterous outcome. I would highly recommend him to my friends and families without any hesitation.
