As a defendant in a criminal case you are entitled to a presumption of innocence, trial by jury or judge, the right to be represented by an attorney, and many more rights guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution and other legal system safeguards.
Guaranteed Results: Not allowed
It is unethical for any attorney in Illinois to guarantee a particular result. On the other hand, many years of experience allows me to analyze a situation and make calculated evaluations as to the most likely outcomes so that my clients can make the best possible choices.
I take great satisfaction in obtaining the best results for all my clients. In criminal cases, this can be a “Dismissal” before trial or a “Not Guilty” finding after a trial. Other times, to avoid extended court appearances and additional costs to my client, a negotiated settlement can be an attractive option.
Commitment to “Civility”
In addition to being an aggressive advocate for the best results for my clients, I insist that my clients receive respect and courtesy from the prosecutor and the presiding judge in all cases.
Our website is also home to our Continuing Legal Education products which reflect our commitment to a legal profession that is always growing and to facilitating greater "civility" within the legal system. I design and present accredited Continuing Legal Education for attorneys in the State of Illinois and the State of Florida. Please enjoy our entire website and share your comments, suggestions, and ideas with us.
