About me

I have practiced law in the State of Illinois for approximately 15 years.  Morever, I have jury and bench trial experience.  I have experience handling litigation, both civil and criminal, in state and federal court.  


I have recovered millions of dollars for my injured clients.  Also, I have earned a reputation as an aggressive defender of the rights of the accused.  Contact me if you have been injured by the negligence of others - or, if you have been accused of a crime.
