    20%
    Work laws have been created to guarantee that employees who are disabled or injured on the job are provided with temporary or permanent monetary awards.

No attorney fees are charged by Mitchell S. Sexner & Associates LLC unless we are able to obtain a monetary recovery. See www.workerscompensationlawyersillinois.com for more info.

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.

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.

Marcos Reyes Helped Us Prove Our Truth
From the moment we came in for a consultation, Marcos Reyes listened to us, saw the evidence, and understood the assignment. He fought for my father because he believed in our truth. We had video evidence to the case, and Marcos displayed it to the fullest. My father said he instilled great power in the court and stood his grounds. We are entirely grateful that we were given the opportunity to be represented by Marcos Reyes. The entire process, from beginning to end, was easy. Marcos gave us reassurance, and went through the steps with us on what we needed to do and how to do it. He guided us all the way, and really secured a sense of hope for us.

Amazing lawyers!!
I am definitely not one to make reviews, let alone 5 star reviews but theses folks absolutely deserve it. Out of all the letters I received of all the lawyers I could have gone with I am beyond glad I went with Mitchell. I was not only suspended in one state but two, i was more than likely going to continue being suspended AND get an extension of at least 3 more months. I told Mitchell my situation and how i couldn’t afford going another 3 months of being suspended (potentially even more) because of the career i want to get in. Thanks to Mitchells help my existing suspension at the time was dropped, I didn’t get resuspended because of the new tickets I just received while I was suspended AND I didn’t have to pay a ticket that was 2000 dollars! Not only that but they dramatically reduced the remaining tickets fees I had to pay by more than half! Mitchell explained everything and anything that I had questions on to make sure I knew exactly what was going on and what to expect. From here on out I am only going to Mitchell and his great team! Thank you for everything you have done!

AMAZING ATTORNEY!
100% Recommend. This is my second time around having Mitchell and his team help me. They are extremely professional, personable, and not once, but twice have put my mind at ease. They represented me in court and it was the easiest, most pleasant experience I've had with my driving record up to date. Simply the best!

Outstanding
Mitch and his associates are outstanding lawyers. They helped me navigate the legal system, which I am not familiar with, very well. They stayed on top of my case and made sure to keep in contact with me weekly and whenever my case had an update. Attorney Ari Trubitt is excellent and handled my case with great care and dedication. Mitch and associates have tremendous experience and knowledge in criminal defense and I highly recommend them to anyone in need.

A grateful client
I had a consultation with Mr. Sexner which I was very satisfied with. I was assigned Mr. Ari Trubitt to represent me in traffic court. His confidence and knowledge was greatly appreciated by me, and I am sincerely thankful for his efforts on my behalf (my case was dismissed).

Best lawyer I've ever came to contact with
I learned about Mr. Sexner when his office sent me a mail after I got arrested for driving on a suspended license and driving while using an electronic device. I honestly thought this was the end of my life because I'm an international student here and something like that could mean disaster for my future. At first, I called another lawyer who also sent me a mail and we literally talked on the phone for 3 minutes and then he told me that he will meet me outside the courtroom 20 minutes before my hearing. I thought that was odd but I agreed. Two days before my court date I read the reviews of that lawyer and I panicked; literally no one had anything good to say about him. I remembered Mr. Sexner's name so I called his office and set up an appointment for the next day (one day before my court date). Only thing I wish is that I should have called him before. He not only accommodated me on such short notice and at a very reasonable price, he was extremely thorough, very professional, knowledgeable, and humble. I was genuinely surprised and happy. We discussed every little detail about my case for about 45 minutes. The next day his associate Mary, who is also very knowledgeable and thorough, and very polite, came with me and both my tickets were dropped. I could not be happier and I highly recommend that you meet him if you have any traffic related problems. He also gave me a mug, which I thought was very cool.

The best
I had a suspended license and Mr. Sexner assured me that i would be taken cared of. I was hesitant and very nervous but with his politeness and vast knowledge he took care of every question i had and day of the court his co-worker showed up at the time she said she would and we faced the judge and i was in and out like a new man, i would 100% recommend to all family and friends
