I was facing a potential felony conviction for a DUI. I spoke with Mr. Komie and during this first meeting I could sense Mr. Komie knew what he was doing and immediately made me feel comfortable with what he needed to do with my case. He and his associates were extremely through and diligent with my case and absolute know the ins and outs of the DUI laws and the court system. Ultimately, my felony case was dropped and it was all due to the great work of Mr. Komie, his associate Mr. Anderson and the other fantastic people of his firm. I could not be more please.

Clerk convicted me of wrong DUI felony charge for 10 years. Stephen M. Komie vacated my wrongful conviction, I only plead to a misdemeanor and got my drivers license back. I highly recommend Stephen M. Komie. Me and my family are grateful for his service.

Do not know where to begin. I was going to school in Chicago when I got caught with a reputable amount of cannabis. Enough to where the DA wanted to charge me 3 felonies and call it a "controlled substance" instead of cannabis.... I was in cook county for more or less than a week or so and when I got out I had no clue what direction to go in.
This is when one of my family members told me to contact Mr. Komie. I called him and immediately he told me to get in his office. Next thing I knew I was on the blue L train, headed to his office on Lasalle. He met me at the door and had me in his office no more than 90 seconds of checking in with his secretary, Mary. He sat me down and heard me out, talked with me about my case and made me feel at ease about my situation. He is super professional but I could also tell he reall cared about his clients. His associate Mr. Anderson played a huge roll in my case as well and has the same passion to get the best for his clients.
I had a lot going on with me in the 3 years that we fought this case and they both were very supportive through it all.
Back to the lawyering though, to make a long story short, I was looking at having 3 felonies, 4 years felony probation, 120 hours community service, and a rediculous amount of fines and fees. Not to mention my felonies were going to stay with me my ENTIRE life! I ended up getting out of the pickle with just 2 years informal probation, a way smaller amount of fines, and just an arrest (not a conviction!) on my record which I can get rid of in 5 years (slap on the wrist)! I was going to have to do drug counseling but somehow they were able to work their magic on getting me out of that too! My final day in court was like Christmas for me!
I definitely recommend Mr. Komie and his associate Mr. Anderson to anyone in a legal bind in Illinois.
Mr. Komie and as well as Mr. Anderson both demand a lot of respect in the court room and it definitely shows. They are out to win and that is clearly what they do. So if it comes time to pick a lawyer to fight for you life, I definitely recommend Komie and Associates.
