success !!
Mitchell was very helpful in explaining the pros and cons of hiring an attorney for this case without pushing into either direction. Mary Baccam was my attorney and she was very competent in explaining all the options and subsequent outcomes of the case. She patiently went over in explaining why ' to plea not guilty' was the best course of action and how to best represent my case. And it was a success! She was welcoming and humane in her representation and yet highly professional and competent.

Life saver !!
Best experience of my life !!!! My license was suspended and I was in all sorts of trouble. The law office I called before I called them said there was NOTHING that could be done. However, when I called Mitchell, he was so happy to try to help me get my license back. And they did !! Him and Mary helped my get my license within days of my consultation. Amazing experience. With their many areas of speciality, they are now my go-to law office for ANY problem I may run into. Everyone at the office is so kind. I consider it a blessing that I found them.

Great attorney
We are very fortunate to have found Sexner and Associates for our legal needs. We were at a very low point in our lives when we were met with our legal troubles. My husband was being charged with a DUI as well as various other traffic violations, one being a Felony charge in 2 different counties. Mitch and his team went right to work to retain all evidences and paperwork regarding our cases. They were very informative, knowledgeable and really put our situation in perspective for us to better understand everything. He gave us advice on how to receive a better outcome in our case. Since we followed his recommendations, not only did he get my husband’s charges reduced, but he got the judge to remove the felony completely. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome in both cases at both counties. Thank you so much Mitch! I highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ari Trubitt
I was very pleased with my representation from Sexner & Associates. Specifically, I was represented by Ari Trubitt who was just fantastic. Mr. Trubitt is smart, funny, empathetic, and is evidently experienced. From when Mr. Trubitt was first assigned my case, I felt comfortable with his representation, as we set a realistic goal for the outcome of the case and he checked in to provide weekly updates. The litigation process is a complex and bumpy road in general but especially in Cook County, and I am grateful to have had Ari on my side.

Definitely Recommend
I was very pleased with the service I received from the firm of Mitchell Sexner & Associates. They were professional, courteous, and spent time to resolve my issue. They kept me informed and communicated well along the way. They worked diligently with the prosecutor to get my case dismissed, as the issue was caused by a technicality that was out of my hands and happened without my knowledge. Although the case was to be dismissed, the court delayed the hearing the morning it was scheduled because the judge called in sick. They continued to communicate with the prosecutor and were able to work it out so that I did not have to pay additional fees for another court date. I really appreciate their service and concern for clients. Definitely recommend this firm to anyone in need of law services.

Great Representation
I am very pleased with the representation by Mitchell Sexner & Associates. Ari Trubitt who represented me from this office did an outstanding job with preparing me for trial and we received the outcome we sought...NOT GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS. I wasn't guilty of the what I was being accused of anyway, but my situation wound up in court and I needed principled, steady, effective representation from a competent law firm, and that's what I received. Ari called me each week to check on my well-being and inquired if I had any questions or concerns. He made time to meet with me at a time that was convenient for me. His humor often time lightened the mood inasmuch as I was weighed down mentally from this case and what it would do to my career had it not gone my way. Ari was professional, punctual, prepared, and persistent. More importantly, he truly believed I was innocent of my charge and prosecuted my case with this fact in mind. I am truly pleased with the office of Mitchell Sexner & Associates, and I am very appreciative of the representation provided by Atty. Ari Trubitt from his staff of talented, effective, capable associate lawyers. Thank you for your representation.

Mitchel and Ari Lawyers
Sexner and Associates LLC, is no joke. They listen, organize and apply the intellect like no other. I was represented by Ari and he's phenomenal. I felt represented the way a lawyer should rep for a client. I highly recommend this law firm. Ari didn't act like a lawyer. He became a friend and that is everything to me.

Sexner & Associates saved my daughter from having a misdemeanor on her record
We contacted Sexner & Associates after reading their reviews (being one of 12 different advertisements we had received in the mail). My daughter had been ticketed for driving 30 mph over the limit, and could have received a misdemeanor on her record, so it was made clear that she needed a lawyer to represent her, and deal with the city she was ticketed in. We received a call from Mitch initially, he was very professional and courteous, asking questions to ensure he understood the entire picture, and shared information about his colleague who would be contacting us over the next few days. Within a day we received a call from Ari Trubitt, who was another excellent representation of their law firm, and he had all of the details of her ticket and background information on recall-we discussed how to proceed with her court date, how he would act on her behalf, and what she should do to prepare. We spoke with him a few times in between the date, and on the day of court he was able to discuss options with the prosecutor from the village and agree upon a reduced penalty and ticket status. We would recommend Sexner & Associates, and specifically Ari Trubitt, if you need effective representation with your serious traffic citation. He saved my daughter from having a record for a driving infraction that could have impacted her future. Thank you Sexner & Associates.

Trustworthy, dependable
After procrastinating for several months, I called Mitch for the first time the night before a scheduled court date and he was able to line up a great attorney at the last minute to represent me the following morning. Fast forward several years and he helped with successfully getting the charges expunged.

Best attorney
Today I was at court for my traffic tickets. My attorney Rosario Spaccaferro was able to dismiss the case, which was beyond my expectations. For the moment I walk in the office at Sexner & Associates LLC till today when my case was resolved I felt I was in good hands. Mitchell and Rosario are highly professional, knowledgeable, and right to the point. They will walk you thought the process, give you the options, and be honest with you. If you need a attorney that you can trust and be confident that he is doing his best to help you then no look any further.

DUI Defense
Paul Piro was lawyer for my dui case. He was able to get me a court supervision deal with one of the toughest prosecutors in Dupage county. Paul always kept me in the loop throughout the case. I am very impressed with the result of my case, highly recommend hiring him if you need a defense lawyer.
