Hal is a fantastic lawyer. I researched over 50 lawyers before selecting Hal and he did not disappoint. He is well connected in the Chicago area, asks intelligent questions and achieved the best outcome possible. On top of all that he is responsive and was with me through every step of the process. My case was relatively "minor" in comparison to the other cases Hal was handling, but it was important to me, so it was important to Hal. I can't recommend him enough.

I was charged with two identity theft felonies when I contacted Hal and he talked to me right away, no waiting. He told me what to expect, how much it would cost, and that he will put 100% of his energy into getting me off without a record. He did just that. He put in a lot of work and time into my case, which ended up taking longer than we anticipated. He still kept his word and he was able to get me deffured prosecution. Instead of having a felony on my background, I now have to complete my community service hours and put this behind me with no record of my mistake. Hal did an amazing job and stayed on top of everything. He always answers calls or texts and is extremely easy to get a hold of. He presented me to the court in the most authentic way and he was able to show them exactly what kind of person I am. Hard work, dedication and passion is what you can expect from Hal Garfinkel.

I have known Hal for over 20 years. I had the privelege of working with Hal while we were both young prosecutors. Hal was an exceptional prosecutor with great courtroom skills. As a defense attorney, Hal is fearless, puts his client's rights first. Hal is also a first class individual with high ethics and moral standards. It is privelege to have Hal not only as my colleague but my ever lasting friend.
