How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I enjoy being a daily courtroom practitioner, which is what my practice allows.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

It is important for a person to fully understand the legal aspects and consequences of their particular situation. However, while potentially useful, self-education can mislead someone to not fully appreciate the practical applications of how the law will work in a particular case.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

This is usually not a problem.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

It depends on the particular circumstances.

Associate, Rooks, Pitts & Poust, 1989 - 1993
Prosecutor, Will County State's Attorney's Office, 1985 - 1989

My experience as a criminal prosecutor has helped me develop the skills and techniques to be the best defense attorney possible.

My strength is having an intimate knowledge of the Will County system and the particular personalities of all those involved. My style is to help my clients move through the system in a way that either fully minimizes, or eliminates, any negative effects to their life once the case is finalized.
