Orland Park Injury Attorney

Southwest Cook County Personal Injury and Criminal Defense Attorney

The Attorney You Choose Makes a Difference

The attorney you choose will play an important role in whether you receive full and fair compensation in your personal injury claim or in whether you beat the charges against you in a criminal case.

The results of your case will affect your life and your future. When I take a case, I commit to doing everything in my power to get the results you need and deserve. I'm James A. Payonk, Jr., a personal injury attorney and criminal defense lawyer representing clients in Will County and Cook County courts in Illinois.

I have been practicing law for more than 30 years. I have personally tried hundreds of cases to verdict, both in criminal law and personal injury matters. I have negotiated settlements in thousands of other cases and obtained millions of dollars on behalf of my injured clients. I am hard working, extremely thorough, and I fight for my clients.

I provide aggressive legal representation with compassion, understanding the physical, emotional and financial setbacks a serious injury can impose, and helping you deal with them throughout the legal process; or likewise dealing with criminal charges you are facing. I have represented clients who have sustained very serious injuries, but no case is too small. We additionally represent clients who have been charged not only with serious felonies, but also with misdemeanors of all types. We have extensive experience in:

  • Serious injuries or the death of a loved one after a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle or pedestrian accident, fall on poorly maintained property, or from medical malpractice.

  • Felony criminal charges against adults and juveniles in the Chicago area, such as drug crimes, theft crimes, and violent crimes.
