Orland Park Injury Attorney

Southwest Cook County Personal Injury and Criminal Defense Attorney

The Attorneys You Choose Make a Difference

The attorneys 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. Being knowledgeable in both personal injury law as well as criminal law benefits our clients as these two areas many times overlap.

The results of your case will affect your life and your future. When we take a case, we commit to doing everything in our power to get the results you need and deserve. We are James A. Payonk, Jr., and Kal Issa, personal injury and criminal defense attorneys representing individuals in Cook County, Will County and DuPage County courts. Together, we have over 50 years experience fighting for clients.

We have personally tried hundreds of cases to verdict, both in criminal law and personal injury matters. We have negotiated settlements in thousands of other cases and obtained tens of millions of dollars on behalf of our injured clients. We are hard working, extremely thorough and we fight for our clients.

We 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. We have represented clients who have sustained devastating, life-changing, serious injuries; as well as clients who have, fortunately, sustained only minor injuries. In all cases, big or small, we fight to protect our clients and get them the maximum compensation allowed by law. 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 Chicago and the suburbs, such as drug crimes, theft crimes, and violent crimes.
