I am a private criminal defense attorney in Chicago, Illinois. I defend people in Cook County, Illinois, and in the surrounding counties. My practice focuses on defending people who have been accused of committing crimes. Additionally, I protect and counsel people who are being investigated for involvement in criminal activity. If you have been charged with a crime or if you are being investigated by the government or police, I will see to it that you benefit from the full protection of the law. You have individual rights afforded to you by the United States Constitution, among other sources, that I will ensure you enjoy.
I practice criminal defense law, defending the rights of people who have been charged with committing a crime. I represent adult defendants, as well as alleged juvenile offenders. I defend people who have been accused of committing federal offenses or state offenses, as well as violating the vehicle code or city ordinances. As a true believer in the sacredness of the United States Constitution, I am a staunch protector of the rights of the individual and a vigorous advocate against abuses of the police power.
I represent defendants at every stage in the criminal justice system; including during bond hearings, felony preliminary hearings, grand jury investigations and trial. To prepare for hearings, I strategize with my clients face to face, even with those who are being held in jail or prison. I file pretrial motions; for example, motions to reduce bond, motions to suppress evidence illegally seized, and motions to suppress confessions illegally obtained. I do whatever necessary for favorable resolution to all my clients' legal dilemmas.
