I like to go out to dinner with friends and drink wine and it puts me just over enough to get a DUI. But, a DUI is a DUI and this was my 3rd one in 7 years. I got it in the worst county, with the worst possible judge. I was looking at 7 years of prison and it was hopeless. I am so glad I found James Lefante. He took care of everything. I didn't have to do a thing except show up. He got the entire thing thrown out of court on a tiny technicality. He is amazing. Do not hesitate to call him. He is worth every penny.

In our personal experience, Attorney James LeFante is a top of the line lawyer. He was very trustworthy, knowledgeable and kept us informed of the status of our case. He was able to settle our personal injury claim fairly. He was compassionate, patient and could relate to our situation during the term of settling the case.
He was very resourceful, intelligent, honest and accurate in his judgement. We would highly recommend him as a personal injury lawyer.

I had the Pleasure of Meeting Mr. LeFante' and his hard working staff. They always treated me with Respect either on the phone or in Person. They also made me feel Like a Person and not a statistic. If I ever need another Attorney I will Call Mr. LeFante' and his Staff. I came home from work today and got a very nice surprise from LeFante' Law office. I am so thankful For Attorney's like Jim and his Staff.
Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.
Thanks for the help you gave me and for working as hard as your firm did for me.

I endorse this lawyer. James (Jim) Lefante is a fellow member of the National College for DUI Defense, a select group of defense lawyers who have the knowledge and trial skill to successfully try and win DUI cases in Illinois. Very few lawyers have that skill and Jim is one of the few who do. He not only possesses tactical trial skill but also the ability to observe defects in the State's case that most lawyers would not observe, as well as the dedication to present them to the court in a persuasive manner.
