Michael F. McMahon is the Very Best Attorney in DuPage County, Do Not Waste your Time with anyone else
Michael McMahon is the Most Ethical, Knowledgeable and best Attorney in DuPage County. Please do now waste your time with Any other Law firm in DuPage County. These other law firms will just take your money and you will be Nothing More than a number to them. Michael and his assistant Patti, took their time to evaluate my case to arrive at the utmost best results/case dismissed. Michael knows the court system Extremely well. If I could give both of them a million stars, it would not be enough. I cant stress this enough, if you ever find yourself in trouble with the law, get with Mike McMahon and Patti, they are truly unbeatable. You will be making the best decision of your life by hiring them.

THANK YOU Mike!!!
Mike is a top notch attorney. He fought for me very hard in the courtroom. He saved my livelihood. I had a very difficult case, I was falsely accused and had a criminal case, I was found not guilty on all charges. It was amazing to watch Mike in the courtroom how he demonstrated his knowledge of the law as it applied to my difficult case. HIGHLY respected by the prosecutors and judges. I thank Mike for getting me out of my difficult situation and can finally move on with my life knowing its all behind me.

Highly recommended
I was falsely accused of a horrific sex offense involving a child. Mike believed I was innocent and helped convince the judge of that too. Because of Mike's great knowledge of the law's and abilities, he got a NOT GUILTY on my case. Thank you to Mike I will not have to live my life as a registered sex offender.

Great job Mcmahon! Not to mention his lovely secretary, Jessica, really helpful and knowledgeable! Great team!

Smooth Operator!!!
Fought a D.u.i. case in Dupage, wasn't very confident that I could win due to my ignorance of my rights. Mr. McMahon assured me that he would do his very best to win and also informed me of my Rights. He didn't rush my case, when I wasn't able to reach him at times his well informed staff were more than helpful to help and also reassured me that Mr. McMahon was definitely the lawyer for the job! Let's just say all charges were dismissed and it was a smooth process. Even though the cards didn't look in my favor he pulled it out for the victory! I will use him again if needed but definitely refer him to anyone that's in need for a Great attorney!

Best attorney in DuPage County
I was arrested for DUI. I called Mr. McMahon and just talking to him, he eased my nerves. He fought for me to receive my driver's license back. Mr. McMahon wouldn't take the plea agreement and he went to trial instead. I was found not guilty on all charges. Im so pleased that I went with him!!

McMahon is an Ethical Attorney
I was in a minor traffic accident and received a reckless driving citation. I contacted a few attorneys’ before calling McMahon. The other attorneys did not look at the case/facts, they just wanted me to plead guilty and take supervision. McMahon, however, was on my side and got the charge dropped. I felt McMahon listened to me and stood by me throughout the process. He’s an ethical man.

One Dedicated Attorney to his Clients, Period!!
Michael McMahon is a dedicated attorney who listens to you and has his your best interest at heart. Very easy to talk to and an outstanding Trial Lawyer. I come from a family of attorneys and I choose Mr McMahon to represent me. He is a well respected attorney and when he walks into a court room other attorneys take notice.

Awesome Lawyer
This was my first experience with a lawyer. I had a DUI case that was resolved in a short amount of time. I felt that Mr. McMahon was looking out for my best interests the entire case. He is a very experienced lawyer and knows the ins and outs of the court room. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His costs were very reasonable and he represented me from start to finish no matter how many court dates there were. He was able to win my case for me and I only received a conviction for illegal lane usage. It was a huge burden lifted off me and my family.

Really good lawyer
I got in minor trouble as a young adult (used him 10 years ago and roughly 5 years ago). Mike was the best, didn't talk down to me, explained my options, and ultimately got both of my cases dismissed. Would recommend in a heart-beat. Has very good connections in DuPage and Cook County with prosecutors and judges

DUI case
I was charged with DUI, and within days I started receiving letters in the mail from all sorts of attorneys. I have never been in any legal trouble, so I had no idea who would handle my case best. After research on the internet and speaking to friends, I chose Mike McMahon to represent me. As soon as I met him, I had a good feeling about where this case would go. He explained everything to me and laid out all options. He was able to get my license back and court supervision with minimal fines. I am so very pleased with the results, and if I ever run into any criminal issues in the future, he will be the first person I call!

Best Decision I ever Made for a bad situation!
He was fantastic!!! He did a great job and met all of my expectations. He made sure to keep me informed and answered all of my questions. I wasn't sure who to go with at first because I knew it was an important decision but I made the right one. The results were better than I could have expected. If you are looking for someone to really help you who cares about your case then you found the right guy!
