A Chicago Defense Attorney with a Track Record of Success


When criminal lawyers are trying to convince people to hire them, they point to a number of different things. A degree from a prestigious law school. Awards and honors. Published works. Media appearances.

All of these things can give you some idea of an attorney’s abilities. But in the end, only one thing really matters: their case results. You want to work with a defense attorney who can point to a track record of positive outcomes for clients, where they were able to minimize charges and penalties.
