I was charged with Domestic Battery - 720 ILCS 5/12-5(a)(1)(Bodily Harm - Class A Misdemeanor) which is a Deportable Crime for anyone who is not a US Citizen. As a Green Card holder it was a matter of Ruining my Entire Career, and Life of me and my Family due to Very Likely Deportation which would've made me Inadmissible to USA for rest of my life.
I was Extremely Worried and didn't want to take any chance, so I've consulted some of the Chicago's Avvo Top Rated Criminal Defense Attorneys. Among all of them, I've found Mr. Steven Hunter - Highly Experienced (27 Years-and that too in a Big City like Chicago), Very Aggressive, Highly Knowledgeable, Very Straightforward and Most Important - Very Honest. Yes, Honesty is rare these days, but from my very First Meeting with him, I've found Mr. Hunter Very Honest in his Opinion and Very Reasonable and Transparent in his Flat Fee Structure. Even after knowing the possible Deportation Consequences, he didn't take Advantage of my Situation and quoted a Very Reasonable Flat Fee with a Clear Cut Clarification of When he may have to Charge me Extra and Exactly Why. However, my case didn't reach to that point so he Didn't have to Charge me Extra. On top of that, he made some Suggestions which saved me from Extra Expenses.
Rather than Scaring me more, he has made me feel Relaxed and given Very Honest Opinion and Suggestions. He explained me how Domestic Battery cases work and what were my Available Options. He Explained me in Detail how a Trial Process will happen, and Formulated a Detailed Questionnaire for both me and my Witness, and prepared us Very Well for the Trial. My Goal was to Prove myself Not Guilty and Mr. Hunter has Meticulously prepared my case to Achieve that Goal.
I was very confused about whether to go for a Jury Trial or a Bench Trial. But Mr. Hunter has Spot On knowledge of when to go for a Jury Trial and when to go for a Bench Trial. Based on my case details, he Suggested me to go for a Bench Trial and the Final Outcome of the case has Proved he was Totally Correct. Due to his Extensive Trial Experience with Chicago Courts, he has a Very Good Understanding of how Judges and State Attorneys may behave on a Specific Case.
On the Day of Trial, I was pretty Stressed but he had a Positive Conversation with me and made me feel Relaxed and Fully Prepared for the Trial. His Opening Statement was Very Well Thought and Pretty Effective. The way he has Smartly and Aggressively Cross-Examined the Complaining Witness and other Witnesses, has revealed their Lies and made our Defense more Stronger. He didn't give any Chance to the State Attorney for an Effective Counter Attack, and made the State Attorney Struggle to Prove me Guilty. His Closing Statement was also Very Well Thought and Pretty Effective. Finally, after a long 3 Hour Trial, the Judge has given a Verdict of Not Guilty. I had Tears in my Eyes as Mr. Hunter has Saved me from the Most Critical Crisis of My Life so far. Me and My Family will Never Forget what he did for us.
Mr. Hunter is Undoubtedly the BEST Criminal Defense Attorney in Chicago. If you are Charged or Arrested for any Criminal Matter (and Especially if you are not a US Citizen), I would Highly Recommend Hiring Mr. Steven Hunter or at-least having a 30 Minutes Free Consultation with him, so you can see the Difference between Him and Other Criminal Defense Attorneys.

As a concerned mother I began a search for a lawyer that could represent my son within just a few days for several charges including traffic and ammunition charges.
Mr. Hunter was one of many to contact me after I signed up for a lawyer site. At this time Mr. Hunter was efficient and spoke to me with concern and guidance asking important and probing questions to ensure that quality service and a mutual understanding was present.
A meeting was scheduled and once again he was open, honest and supportive throughout the duration of my visit.
Mr. Hunter wasn't able to attend the upcoming court appearance but arranged for someone to be there for me son. Mr. Hunter explained to us the details of what could possibly happen and reassured me that the lawyer would have access to him for additional assistance if needed.
Over the next few weeks he consulted and groomed my son and myself for our future court date and how to be well prepared.
Mr. Hunter represented my son well and we ended
