Story
Tagline
Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney and Author
Introduction
I am a 24-year veteran litigator with extensive trial experience who works on complex criminal cases.  I have the unique distinction of never having lost a case in DuPage County.

I have represented clients in cases involving serious state and federal charges and have been featured on WGN News, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, and numerous other publications. I have represented clients in several high profile cases, including a man involved in the Illinois Secretary of State driver's license scandal, a young man charged with a shooting of a 16 year old rival gang member on a Chicago street and who may have been framed by a corrupt Chicago Police Detective, a father charged with the murder of his 4 month old infant son in Will County, a Chicago Public School teacher charged with having sex with her underage students, a young man in DuPage County cleared of an alleged rape after a jury trial, a man charged with stabbing his former lover in the eyes numerous times and permanently blinding her, a man who was charged with being involved with the AK-47 shooting of a female friend and the subsequent attempt to dispose burn her body, as well as many other high profile cases throughout Illinois.

I started practicing law in 1992 when I started working for one of Chicago's busiest Plaintiff's personal injury firms.  Within a couple of months of becoming a lawyer, I was doing jury trials at the Daley Center, and taking on powerful insurance companies and their experienced and high priced lawyers.

I am licensed to practice in all Illinois state courts, the 7th Federal Circuit Court, and am a member of the Federal Trial Bar.  I have appeared in Federal Courts as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada.

I am also a published author having written Chapter 1 of "Strategies for Defending Identity Theft Cases: Leading Lawyers on Understanding Identity Theft Crime, Preparing a Thorough Defense, and Managing Technological Evidence (Inside the Minds)," a book published by Thomson Reuters, that helps teach attorneys how to represent defendants charged with Identity Theft crimes.  As a leading lawyer, I "wrote the book" on how to defend people charged with Identity Theft crimes and have been contacted by reporters and other authors for my opinion on such crimes.

In 2015 I was extended an invitation to join The National Trial Lawyers:  Top 100 Criminal Defense Trial Lawyers.  Membership to this prestigious organization is obtained through special invitation and is extended only to those attorneys who exemplify superior qualifications of leadership, reputation, influence, stature, and profile as civil plaintiff or criminal defense trial lawyers.  I am currently a proud member of this prestigious organization.

Bragging rights
Experienced lawyer, proud member of The National Trial Lawyers, proud husband, father, and life long Cub fan!
