As a Chicago Illinois criminal defense lawyer, I serve all areas of Cook County, I can represent you in any of the courts within city limits. Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony in Chicago, you deserve to have an aggressive, knowledgeable former prosecutor in your corner.

It’s traumatizing to be arrested and accused of a crime, and if you’re like most people, you probably feel all alone. Fortunately, you don’t have to do this by yourself.

Working with a Chicago Illinois Criminal Defense Lawyer

A criminal defense lawyer has two main concerns: one is to provide you, the client, with the most factual and up-to-date information. The other is to be there for you; to fight hard on your behalf, protecting your rights during the entire process.

Most people discover that the sooner they hire an experienced Chicago Illinois criminal defense lawyer, the more comfortable they feel. There’s something about having someone on-call to answer your questions and knowing that you have somebody on your side – and that’s the peace of mind that working with a former Chicago prosecutor will give you.

Matt Fakhoury, Former Prosecutor

As a former prosecutor in Chicago, as well as in the Third Municipal District (Rolling Meadows), I currently defend people accused of misdemeanor and felony crimes. Because I have been in the courtroom with many of Chicago’s judges and on both sides of cases, I can use my extensive experience and past knowledge to complement the facts of your case – and I will work to get you the best possible outcome.
