An aggressive Chicago criminal defense attorney
Introduction
 Welcome to The Law Offices of David L. Freidberg, P.C. If you have been accused or arrested for criminal activity, we provide the best representation. Our skilled criminal defense team practices aggressive, proactive and highly-creative defense strategies to protect your rights. Why? Because we know there are thousands of innocent people spending time in prison for something they didn't do! The driving force behind this law firm is the most powerful and aggressive criminal defense available. Our results are outstanding. In fact most of our cases never even go to trial: they are dismissed or reduced so that there is NO CRIMINAL RECORD and NO JAIL TIME.

Each criminal case is unique, and only an experienced specialist can anticipate the infinite variables in every criminal case. We provide the type of representation that a criminal defendant needs to successfully protect their rights. The truth is, no matter what the person's intelligence or educational background, the criminal justice system makes it virtually impossible to do a competent job of representing oneself. That’s our job. We have represented over a thousand clients in Cook, Lake, DuPage, Will, McHenry and Kane counties, in addition to Federal Courts in Illinois.

Regardless of who you employ for legal representation, allow us to offer this piece of advice: DO NOT discuss your case or sign a statement without an attorney present (whatever you sign can be used as evidence against you). Also, never enter a plea without first obtaining legal advice, even for minor offenses. The most valuable call you can make is to The Law Offices of David L. Freidberg. Mr. Freidberg and his team will provide a FREE consultation, and they are accessible by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Without obligation, Mr. Freidberg will provide you with general guidance and straight forward answers to the questions that are probably going through your mind right now. CALL US: 312-560-7100

16 OP 73809 - OP denied
Case Conclusion Date: 08.05.2016
Outcome: Order of Protection DENIED

I can never stress the importance of having an experienced attorney on your side. While my practice is mainly criminal defense, I have been handling more and more Order of Protection cases lately.  In a nutshell, my client's half-sister filed an Order of Protection against her for allegedly texting her with profane messages, as well as making threats against her. The Petitioner, not my client, had copies of texts and emails but because she did not have a lawyer,  she could not lay a foundation to get the evidence admitted into court. She did try crying but the judge would have none of that nonsense.  My client testified truthfully, as well as did her other sister, that she never made any threats against her. In fact, the other sister admitted sending the more damaging of the texts!  The judge summarily denied the Order of Protection and even made a comment that the Petitioner is held to the same standard as an attorney when it comes to admitting documents into evidence.  ALWAYS HAVE A LAWYER ON YOUR SIDE!

Case: 15 MC4 005872 - Battery
Case Conclusion Date: July 18, 2016
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Outcome: Not Guilty
Description: Nurse client was charged with battery against another nurse, who was pregnant at the time of the altercation. My client was offered court supervision, which is a decent offer as it is not a conviction, and can be expunged, but since she is a nurse, it could affect her licensing.  This was a clear case of self-defense. The “victim” ordered my client to do something, and when my client did not immediately respond, the victim started screaming and pushing her.  When the State called their sole independent witness, who was never listed in the police reports, I was able to completely discredit her testimony.  Additionally,  I called the officer who investigated the incident to impeach her testimony. The officer never interviewed this witness nor had he ever heard of her!  Not guilty at trial.

I've know Howard now for around 15 years or so. I only have positive things to say about him and his business. I've not only bought Rolexes from Howard but sold a few as well. As for pricing, he's as fair, if not more so, than anyone, dealer or otherwise, I've ever dealt with. And knowing Howard is to become his friend. He treats everyone like family. When I see him out in public, he treats me like his best friend. And if there's ever a problem with a watch, which sometimes there is, like any product, he takes care of it immediately, no questions asked. So, if you're looking for a high end watch, and don't want to pay dealer prices, go to Howard. You can even tell him I sent you.

Not sure what this other reviewer is talking about. Maybe they went somewhere else and forgot. I've been coming here since they opened and have nothing but great things to say. They clean the hell out of my car, interior is spotless and they even wash my rubber mats! AND they're cheaper than Crossroads which is a machine wash, not hand. These guys are the hardest workers I've ever seen. Kudos to Splash!

Always love this place. We generally do take out to be honest and everything is always good. But I'm mad, no more fried mushrooms! Come on Bunnie! I miss those. Great petit filets though and good fried chicken.
