Orland Park Criminal Defense Attorney - Cook and Will County

At my law offices in Orland Park, we provide experienced, dedicated, aggressive legal representation for persons charged with a crime. We have successfully represented clients charges with all types of felonies and misdemeanors, with each client receiving the personal attention to detail on each and every case, no matter what the charge.

I offer a free consultation to discuss your legal rights and interests. To contact me regarding a criminal charge, call 708-966-2408.

Experience Matters

Criminal cases are highly complex. I have more than 30 years of legal experience and have handled more than 200 trials that have gone to verdict. I fight for each client to obtain the best possible result. I perform a thorough review of all of the evidence in each case, assessing and analyzing every aspect of the case.

If the prosecution does not have a strong case, I will not hesitate to take your case to trial to protect your rights and interests, if that is what you want. If the state has a strong case against you, I will advise you of the risks you face. If you choose to go to trial despite the risks, I will fight hard for you, aggressively represent you and argue passionately on your behalf. If you choose to pursue a plea agreement, I will use my 30-plus years of legal experience to negotiate the best possible sentence for you under the law.
