About me

My name is Dennis F. Dwyer. I am a Bridgeview and Chicago attorney who practices in the areas of criminal defense and DUI defense.  I represent clients in both criminal trials and criminal appeals. When your liberty is at stake, you need an attorney who will aggressively advocate on your behalf. As a former prosecutor with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, I have tried hundreds of criminal trials, including several jury trials, and handed several criminal appeals.

  • Richard William Stake Jr.

    Mr. Dwyer was defense counsel on many cases that I prosecuted as a former State's Attorney. He was always very professional and dedicated to doing right by his clients. Though we were adversaries on these cases, I always enjoyed working with him. If you need a criminal defense lawyer, this is the guy you want.
