Exceptional lawyer
I am CDL driver and it's very important for me to keep driving record clean. I hired lawyer Dennis Dwyer twice, and he did excellent job both times. 4 years ago I got a ticket for speeding 25 miles per hour in Hickory Hills, he helped me in Bridgeview court to get ticket dismissed. Last month I got a ticket for speeding 20 miles per hour in Riverside. He represented me in Maywood court. And again, ticket dismissed! He knows the law, he knows what he's doing, and he is always at driver's side. Thank you very much! Advice to others would be - don't violate traffic laws, and you will avoid unnecessary headache. But if this happens, hire attorney Dennis Dwyer. The price is reasonable, and most importantly, he will do everything to keep your driving record clean.

Kept it 100% didn't butter it up like other lawyers
Hired Dennis for my DUI. After talking with 100 DUI attorney for 1 week, I got the most positive vibe and comfort speaking with Dennis over the phone since I live 110 miles away. Dennis kept it real and professional and just didn't feed me B.S like the other attorney in the area by telling me what I want to hear. He even knew the schedules of when the Judges change courtrooms and which direction a judge or proscutor would lean towards. Just by that little information I was sold. I have not gotten a verdict yet but with Dennis experience as a former prosecutor I am sure he will not let me down.

Great lawyer

Dennis Dwyer is truly an outstanding individual who exemplifies the meaning “Great” defense attorney. My recent case had felony criminal implications. He was extremely diligent in his pursuit of the facts, knowledge of the Cook County Court system. He represented me with dignity and honor through this most difficult time in my life. I truly cannot say how much my family and I are appreciative of all his efforts. His ability to operate in court was terrific, and his attention to detail was fantastic. For those of you who have the unfortunate need of his services, he is the best! Pricing is straight forward, your expectations as a client are clear, and his demeanor is of understanding and leadership to guide you through this system. Not all courts are fair as we would like to assume, the trick is to get someone who understands the system and not allow it to go where it wants to go, but where it should go for the truth. Dennis delivers results to the truth, feel reassured and blessed to have Dennis during this crisis in your life.

This was my second DUI and I was overwhelmed with the process and the possible consequences. Mr Dwyer was very knowledgable about DUI defense and his prices are fair. He explained things so I could understand my options and he helped me fight the charges. There are lots of technicalities with a DUI arrest and license suspension and lots of police make mistakes. Mr Dwyer was able to find one of the mistakes which greatly benefitted my case. I trust Mr Dwyer.

Moving Violation
I have known Dennis Dwyer for almost 20 years and he is an exceptional lawyer. There was no hesitation from him in representing me. It was my first speeding ticket in over 13 years. He proved to the judge I have a good driving record and the case was dismissed. I would highly recommend Dennis for your next violation or for a consult.
