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.

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. As a criminal defense lawyer serving all areas of Cook County, I can represent you in any of the courts within city limits.

Working with a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Chicago

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 a 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.
