Review Stephen Klein

  • Excellent Service

    Steve was polite and helpful in resolving a traffic violation (non-dui/dwi). He spent the time to walk me through the options and understand the charge filled against me. He went through all of the evidence I had gathered and helped sort out what was relevant and what was not. The case was ended up in a dismissal, however he was fully prepared to move to trial and I felt confident that it would have gone in my favor. I would definitely hire him again if the need for it arose.

    The thing I'll say about Steve is that he was great at chilling me out when I somewhat freaking out. Honestly, the other side never showed up, so it was dismissed before getting to trial. But I glad I had him for those first several weeks.

    He did everything he had to do to avoid me doing a lot more then what the judge was planning to sentence me with. Considering it was my 1st DUI and triple the limit , he still pulled it off and got me good results. And I say good because no jail time.

    My lawyer explained everything to me in full detail, having it being my first time ever having to acquire an attorney, he gave me the best advice and handled my case very well. I'm very grateful to have had him represent me.

    It was a pleasure working with Mr Klein. I felt extremely comfortable every step of the way because he explained every thing thoroughly, was straight forward, and really knew the ins and outs to win a case. He goes above and beyond what I would assume other lawyers might do. I would recommend Mr Klein to my family and friends if needed.

  • Aggravated DUI w/Breathalyzer, Trial Win!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Tom

    In 2013 I was pulled over and charged with an Aggravated D.U.I. and driving with a b.a.c. above .08 by the city of Chicago. After having been through the process more than a decade earlier; and having been convinced to just plead in the past despite my innocence, I chose to fight this time. The decision to fight was based on my knowledge of the process(after having been through it), knowing what my life would be like after a plea, as well as my innocence.
    The fight took nearly 3 years and 5 lawyers.(3 paid lawyers, and 2 public defenders) Stephen was the 5th and last lawyer I needed to prove my innocence. During the process there some mistakes and missed opportunities by the previous 4 lawyers. This resulted in multiple motion losses and ultimately led to the lengthening of this fight. When the final motion loss came and it became apparent that the blow was going to be kept in as evidence, my 4th lawyer recommended I plea. He felt it is was impossible to win with a breathalyzer included as evidence. As I'm sure you have figured out, I dismissed him and sought further council for the impending trial.
    After interviewing many lawyers some pessimistic about my case... some overly optimistic about it... and all dismissive about what I had to say; I stumbled on to this sight and found Stephen. His reviews led me to a consultation. His straight forward approach combined with his humble attitude and willingness to genuinely look at the entirety of my case is what lead me to hire him. Stephen carefully sifted thru ALL of the evidence and ALL of the previous testimony before figuring out the best way to proceed. It was his thorough approach and complete knowledge of the process that lead to break through after break through prior to trial. It was these breakthroughs that ultimately gave our argument weight going into trial.
    During trial, Stephen expertly executed the plan he developed from discovered evidence. Despite the weight of this evidence, he still maintained a realistic perspective on potential outcomes; and was real with me. His demeanor was professional and rock solid throughout the entire trial. His argument style was so compelling it kept the courtroom filled with observers. It was his overall ability to carefully and methodically present evidence that led to a win. I was found NOT GUILTY!
    With my freedom returned, I cant help but wonder if it would have taken 3 years had I hired Stephen from the start. All I know is that if I ever ran into trouble again, Stephen would be retained immediately. Thanks again for your willingness to listen to my side of the story counselor!

    Steve picked up my case and handled it perfectly. His attention to detail, speed of action and ability to explain the case, what was to come, and outcomes really made the best of a bad experience. Would recommend Steve to anyone in need of a strong attorney.

    I want to give Steve a big thank you for beating my DUI case, I was facing a 3 year suspension and he was able to beat my summary of suspension plus the DUI charge as well. Steve is a aggressive lawyer and will fight for you to win!! I highly recommend Steve and will be calling him again if I need him!

    I brought to Mr. Klein a very difficult D.W.I., case. He advised and represented me in a professional manner at all times. He is a prudent attorney that prevented me from losing my driving privileges. To summarize my experience with Mr. Klein, if I had to do it all over again. I would still hire Mr. Klein. He is a true professional.
