A Deep Understanding Of Illinois Law And Courts

For most people, legal issues present two problems. First, the law, including statutes and regulations, can be difficult to understand. Second, to be successful, you need to understand both the law and the procedural process, whether in the courts or with matters like workers’ compensation.

Courts are governed by the rules of civil procedure. These rules are complex, and mistakes with these rules can cost you your case. This is why an experienced trial attorney can be invaluable when you need to deal with a legal problem. I have handled hundreds of trials and am very comfortable working in the courtroom.

Knowing The Courts And The Community

In addition, those hundreds of cases mean I also know the judges, prosecutors and other attorneys in this area. I know their habits and preferences, the types of arguments they like as well as the ones that are less likely to succeed.

This allows me to tailor your representation in a way that helps create the greatest chance of success for your specific facts and circumstances. This can be critical in obtaining the results that you desire.

Helping With A Wide Range Of Areas

Even seemingly straightforward accident cases, criminal charges or family law disputes can become complex with conflicting evidence and witness accounts.

I understand the implications of serious medical conditions and know how accidents occur. I have a wide network of medical and engineering professionals on whom I can call to reinforce my presentation of the evidence when needed. I have developed a strong reputation and am respected by my peers.
