    I have handled everything from simple DUI to murder cases. SEE AN ATTORNEY - DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE. Even people who are innocent OR do want to "come clean" about everything are in danger of being railroaded by the system. The first consultation is always free.

  2. Divorce and separation
    35%
    I handle divorce, custody, divorce modification and all similar cases. IT IS IMPORTANT TO SEE A LAWYER TO REVIEW YOUR PAPERWORK IF YOU ARE GETTING A DIVORCE THROUGH THE O.C.A.P. SYSTEM. It is worth it to do it right the first time rather than try and "fix" things later.The first consultation is always free.

    I am a Juvenile Court attorney. There are typically two types of cases: 1) Juvenile Delinquency (juvenile defense); and 2) DCFS cases (when the State gets involved with a family, sometimes removing children from a family.

Contested Divorce
Sid is amazing at his Job! He is very understanding to your specific situation, he is a true advocate to have on your side especially if your divorce is contested. He is very experienced at what he does and has many relationships within the legal system because of his 24 years of practice. I received full custody of my child which took her out of a potentially very dangerous situation. I would recommend Sid any day. He is also very reasonable as far as expense to use him.

Horrible
Sidney was horrible, his failure to communicate with me regarding my case was extensive, he failed to respond to things filed in court against me, even the opposing attorney stated how incompetent he was. Not to mention his assistant failed to check to make sure she wasn't adding me into her email to him stating my case wasn't worth fighting for or in her words " the headache" this man did not even attempt to fight for me then dropped me after the first hearing.

Unnecessary custody
I sought advice from Sid because my baby daddy didn't want anything to do with his new baby and I wondered if I could get the baby adopted by my new fiance. Sid said this would be a good time to file papers and get the baby daddy to relinquish custody. It has totally backfired . I now get to spend a lifetime of visitation because my new attorney said the advice I received was incorrect. Courts do not allow fathers to relinquish custody without blatant harm to the child. Had I never attempted the legal paperwork, I and my fiance would not be spending a lifetime of visitation and custody problems with a drug addict ex boyfriend and his mother who is forcing her son to be involved in my son's life. So sad for my baby.
