Attorney James A. Payonk Jr.

At my law offices in Orland Park, I am committed to providing high quality legal services. I am experienced, dedicated and highly responsive to clients' individualized needs.

As a personal injury and criminal defense attorney, I work for clients who are facing difficult challenges. I understand that my clients depend on me for results. I do everything in my power to obtain the best possible results on behalf of each client I represent.

I have been representing clients throughout Chicago and the southwest suburbs for more than 25 years. Throughout my legal career, I have handled a wide range of personal injury and criminal law matters on behalf of clients from all walks of life.

My Areas of Concentration

I represent clients in personal injury cases and criminal law cases. As a personal injury lawyer, I represent clients who have suffered an injury as a result of negligence or wrongdoing.

Some of the personal injury cases I have handled include car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and pedestrian accidents. I have the ability to handle even the most complex personal injury claims, including claims for catastrophic injuries and wrongful death.

In my criminal law practice, I represent clients charged with all types of felonies and misdemeanors, as well as persons charged with DUI and driver’s license offenses. Some of the more common criminal matters I handle include marijuana and drug charges, battery, gun charges, theft and robbery, and DUI.
