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.

I am a licensed professional in Illinois. I had a client harass and attempt to slander my name with my professional board. I hired Mr. Komie as a referral from another attorney. He works with integrity and precision. He is a very competent attorney that is compassionate as well. Mr. Komie has been honest and upfront throughout the process. Not only has he been successful but, has exceeded my expectations in this matter. I would highly recommend him.

Its hard for me to fully descriptor how incredible Stephen is. He is a gentlemen, top shelf lawyer and a stud. I was wrapped into a Fed case for 800 kilos of marijuana and he saved me. I had a different lawyer who assured me minimum 2 years in prison and no return of seized assets. I fired her. Stephen got me unsupervised probation with work release to Tonga and my property back. You can not put a price on his services and he is not just my lawyer but my friend. My advise is if your in a jam and need a lawyer, hire Stephen! When it comes to you freedom don't spare the expense, you get what you pay for.

Stephen Komie was so competent, considerate, and such a good advocate for my son who was facing cannabis trafficking charges. The mandatory sentencing laws in Illinois are draconian and Mr. Komie was successful in having the worst of the charges dropped in spite of the over-zealous efforts by the state's magistrate. When we had occasion to meet with Mr. Komie or speak on the phone, we were confident that we could not have secured a better attorney for my son. I highly recommend Mr. Komie without reservation.

In my opinion, it is a big mistake to think about hiring Stephen Komie or any of his associates. This is the way I feel. I would never consider using Stephen Komie & Associates. I do not feel Stephen Komie and Eric Anderson should be considered. This is a review including my opinion.

We had a slight marijuana incident that would not have happened if the officer didn't welcome herself in my home without permission. My husband was arrested on Friday and by Sunday I was in Mr. Komie's office making arrangements for bail. Mr. Komie's confidence was unremarkable! He told me right from the start that we are going to win this case, not a doubt in him mind. Our first court appearance proved Mr. Komie has been around for a long time. Not only did everyone know him, they respected him, and sometimes seemed to fear him! Not a bad thing! Eric Anderson was also part of this team and he's just as respected as Mr. Komie, and was a great asset! Court took almost 2 years, but not his fault. That's just how the system works! On the day of trial, Mr. Komie knew my husband was super nervous but kept reassuring him he was walking out of there that day - A FREE MAN! He was right! Mr. Komie tore the court room up! He had the arresting office so flustered she couldn't keep her story straight! Judgement for us! Mr. Komie and Mr. Anderson are the attorney's you want on your side!! The cost for their fees totally outweighs the cost of your freedom and life! Without these two super dudes, who knows where we'd be today!

Mr. Komie and Eric Anderson succeeded in getting my son's car back when two other lawyers told him to "walk away from the car". Mr. Komie confidently took my case when my son was arrested for multiple felonies in. His car was confiscated, along with a large amount of cash, and I felt like it would be impossible to get it back. I was on the title and loan along with my son, as well as Bank of America as the lienholder. My son continuously searched for a lawyer to take this part of the case, and to represent me in the process while another lawyer was "helping" (or so we though) with his criminal matters. Mr. Komie and Eric Anderson were calm and confident the whole time. They kept us informed of all the possible outcomes throughout the process. However, Mr. Komie made it clear that he had been successful in this type of case in the past. They were given an enormous amount of respect in the court room. Within two months the car was back in our possession without any restrictions. My son immediately fired his defense attorney and hired Mr. Komie to represent him in his criminal matters and to fight the money forfeiture. If you want a lawyer who will represent you without judging you for whatever type of situation you are in, Mr. Komie and his associates are who you should retain, especially if other lawyers have doubts about your situation. I cannot thank Mr. Komie and Eric Anderson enough for successfully handling this case. My son has his vehicle back, which is now fully in his name, and I will not have to worry about the situation any further.

Life's Difficulties Don't Slow Eric John Anderson Down.
He gets me out on my own recognizance, I am in from California but three hours before arrested. The first time we walked in court together as free men, he got my case dismissed. Working with the District Attorney, he was able to display our case as winnable with the fact that the officer was not present twice. Just in case, helped prepare me for all possible outcomes if we were to go to trial.
Thank you Eric J. Anderson.
All of this with his arm in a cast.
I will keep my Marijuana Hand Lotion at home in California and wish to Congratulate Illinois about the upcoming Medical Cannabis availability.
