Simply the best
I have consulted with Mr falconer on couple of occasions and received a perfect professional advice that resolved the issue. Mr falconer is very competent, kind and attentive to clients needs and yet will fight furiously for your rights. I learned that from the friends I referred. Highly recommended!

Micheal is very honest about what may take place. He left the door open for me to ask questions and understanding. He is awesome.

He is a very trustworthy person. He is very professional, definitely I would recommend him. Responsibility is one of his most attributes. He keep me informed of all that was happening in my case with out me going after him like it happened to me with other attorneys.

"There is a well-known true story about Michael Falconer. When he was a young prosecutor in the Cook County State's Attorney's office he discovered evidence suggesting that two men had been convicted of murder for a crime they did not commit. He disclosed this evidence and testified as a defense witness at the retrial, and both men were aquitted. This man has courage and he has honor."
