Overall a solid experience. Matt was professional, helpful, and covered all the bases.

- Aamir April 6, 2018

Matt was professional and understood the sensitivity of this situation and made sure I was comfortable, and understood the process. Matt had given me an estimated timetable of when this would be resolved and fortunately several weeks later it was over. I would definitely recommend Matt not only for his professionalism, and honesty, but for having the best rates also!

- Josef S. July 26, 2014

We had hired Matt for a serious matter for a family member. Since our first phone call, Matt was very thorough in explaining the charges and our options. When we met him person at his office he was extremely professional and understanding of the situation. He helped us guided through the system. He worked really hard to get us a very good outcome. Matt kept us posted through out the process. We are grateful for his services.

Matt did an amazing job on my matter. In addition to being highly knowledgeable, he has a great “bedside manner” and is always reachable — even late evenings and weekends. In my experience, that combination of attributes is rare. He achieved a great result for me — reducing the charge to reckless driving even with breath test results and admissions. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

- DUI client July 9, 2014

I have a lot to deal with in my personal life, not including all the stress the case gave me. Yet, Matt assure me that he would do everything possible to win the case. Which he did, the entire duration of the case Matt would continuously support me and always helped me feel comfortable and secure about the case. After months of waiting and emotional turmoil, we stepped into the final court hearing. Matt was relentless and swift with his defense actions. I was so happy to have hired him and I will continue to hold on to his card for friends and family if ever needed. Thanks Matt

I am very impressed with Matt and will recommend him to anyone I know! The whole process was amazing he explained everything and made it so easy for me . Thanks to Matt I have fresh start with a clean record.

I received very fast and efficient service from Mr. Fakhoury. He was very helpful throughout the entire process of resolving my legal issue and provided answers to my concerns very quickly. He is very knowledgeable about the expungement process in Illinois and was able to successfully obtain an expungement from the court within three months for me. He was very honest and straightforward with me about my case from the beginning. I would highly recommend him for your legal needs.

- Expungement Client July 2, 2014

Matt provided most competent and thorough legal representation-two qualities I wouldn’t always associate with attorneys. He not only efficiently filed my cases but also regularly communicated with me through the process and was always very reachable when I had a question.
Would definitely recommend him to others needing his specific areas of expertise as he and his firm seem willing to go to any length to ensure the client is satisfied and the their cases are suitably resolved.
Thx, Matt. Most appreciated.

- Nancy April 12, 2014

I was very happy with the work that was done by Mr. Fakhoury. He handled the case with professionalism and made me feel very comfortable with what was expected of me during the case and the court proceeding. Because I was very tense and curious about my case, he called me on many occasions to update me on where we are and stuff. Matt is very aggressive in the court room and he worked as a state prosecutor in the court. So, he knows in and outs very well.

- M.S. April 8, 2014

YOU ARE AWESOME! We are so thankful to God for showing our family the way toward you, Matt. HE knew we needed all that you are, to help our son. Thank you from the bottom of our Cajun hearts. We are happy! You made a huge difference in our family’s life today. Go look in the mirror and hug yourself, from us.

A lawyer with Knowledge, Heart & Integrity
Matt has played a large role in our life in the past year. We had a business issue with a customer that ended up in criminal courts in Illinois. This was our first time having any interaction with the law. Mortified, confused and financially strapped Matt held our hands, fought hard for us, and most of all believed in us. Above it all we could reach him and get a response at 4 am on a Sunday morning if needed. He also worked with us according to our financial constraints. You can certainly put your trust in him to get you through your legal battles. He knows the law, he will do what’s right and he treats you like a human being!

- Criminal Defense Client January 18, 2014

Matt defended me in a Domestic Battery case. From the beginning, he was honest, open and believed in my innocence and character. He was responsive and very connected in the Rolling Meadows court system. His demeanor was professional and thorough. The outcome was a dismissal and Matt will be handling the expungement from this point as I look forward to having my name and record completely cleared. I would highly recommend Matt as a superior defense attorney to anyone.

“Excellent Attorney, Easy To Work With”
I hired Matt to expunge a retail theft and drivers license suspension misdemeanor off my record. I definitely waited to long to get this off my record thinking it will be a long and confusing process. But I am glad to have had Matt work on my case. He was very helpful and made the process feel like a breeze. He explained the process and made everything clear for me. It took exactly the 3 months time he said it would. I was so pleased to have received my petition for expungement approved on Christmas Eve. Thank you very much Matt.

- Alex December 23, 2013

I contacted Mr. Fakhoury after going to court with another lawyer on an aggravated speeding violation. He was kind, diligent and spoke in terms I could understand regarding my violation and its consequences. His professional manner in court helped me tremendously. Not only did he change my court date to benefit my holiday travel plans, he also managed to get my case reduced far beyond what I thought would be possible. He is respected and admired and I am so thankful for his services. Without his help, I would have been charged with serious penalties. If you are looking for someone who you know you can trust and rely on, Mr. Fakhoury is your go-to man. I am ever grateful for his talents for the law.

- Ms. Henry November 26, 2013

I am very pleased with Mr. Fakhoury’s work and the overall outcome. Not only was he able to expunge all the cases off my record but it was done in a very swift professional matter. Mr. Fakhoury is a person you can truly depend on. I would highly recommend Mr. Fakhoury to anyone who is looking to start fresh and put past mistakes behind them. In my case he exceeded my expectations.

- Expungement Client October 18, 2013

Mr. Fakhoury represented me on an alleged DV case. The case itself was bogus from the beginning. Even with false reports and lying on the stand Matt was still able to fight and get me a Not Guilt. Matt was extremely responsive regardless of the time of day. He kept me in the loop at all times and explained what was going on. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a Criminal Defense Lawyer.

- Erik October 14, 2013

I am very pleased with the service Mr. Fakhoury and his team provides. Quick, efficient and very knowledgeable as it should be. Would recommend Mr. Fakhoury to anyone who is looking for a quick successful outcome which he provides.

-B.P. September 19, 2013

The representation and advice by Matt was exceptional, very professional. I was very satisfied with the outcome. It was even better than I expected. I highly recommend anyone who needs legal help to contact Mr. Fakhoury.

- David June 27, 2013

I live in Los Angeles so my looming court dates in Chicago presented practical and financial hardship. I interviewed a few attorneys by phone and Matt immediately stood out as the best. He did not disappoint. Working on a tight time schedule, Matt got my case dismissed without me ever having to step foot in the courtroom. He is knowledgeable, professional and well-connected. I highly recommend him.

- Eric April 15, 2013

Thank you Matt – You saved my life and the life of my family. I was charged with my 2nd DUI in Chicago and Matt took the case to trial and won. I have my life and my license back!

- Yuriy April 5, 2013

The representation, advice, and guidance by Matt was exceptional. Very professional and cares for your best sake. I knew from the time I talked to him on the phone that he was the real deal and felt he was truly a great person. Helped ease my thoughts and feelings until my case was heard, and was satisfied with the outcome. It was even better than I expected. If you are ever in need of legal advice as everyone’s case is different, you’re best bet is to reach out to Matt and his team!

- George April 5, 2013

I strongly recommend Mr. Matt Fakhoury. He is an outstanding lawyer, as responsive and professional as they come. With out a doubt, if not for him I would be in a nightmare situation. Thanks to Matt Fakhoury, that potential nightmare, is simply just a life lesson.

- DUI client March 23, 2013

I hired Matt after getting into some serious trouble. I work in a accounting firm and was arrested of possession of controlled substance (approx 2.7 gr) which is a Class 4 felony. Having a clean background , and a good job this was a serious charge. I called Matt, and he explained what he would try to do, given my background. When court came around, I could over hear states attorney say she didn’t want to offer drug class, but proceed. Matt talked to the supervising states attorney, and got me drug class. This is 2 hours a day , for four Saturdays, then the case is dismissed . After that I can expunge my record. I shouldn’t of even qualified for this, but Matt got me into this program, and literally got my life back. As a former states attorney he has great knowledge of the system, is very responsive, and really works with you. This was the first (and will be the last) I need to hire an attorney for criminal offense, but I would definitely recommend him.

- Criminal Defense client March 17, 2013

Responsiveness is the most important attribute a lawyer can display to a client. Matt was responsive and kept me posted on relevant changes to my case.

- KJohnson March 16, 2013

The only mistake I made with my case was not hiring Matt from the beginning! With a history as an ex-prosecutor for Cook County, as well as a highly esteemed Professor at DePaul University his knowledge in the field of Law is immaculate. Matt is incredibly talented and an expert when it comes to the Art of Negotiation. I hired Matt 1 year ago Jan 25, 2012. I was charged with possession, transportation, and intent to distribute schedule 1 & 2 narcotics/stimulants. Which came out to about 3+ Class X felonies. As you can see, I was looking at some serious jail time, at least 7 years. Matt was committed to my case, professional at all times and connected with all the right people. He handled my case with the utmost integrity.
I received 2 years of probation (expungable), which is practically a miracle in many cases like mine!
If you have a serious criminal case, look no further.
Thank Matt!

I would first off like to give all my thanks to Mr. Fakhoury. I have dealt with a couple of lawyers in my past and I absolutely did not get the kind of help that I received from Mr. Fakhoury. Throughout my expungement process i was frequently updated on the status of my expungement and always informed on what was going on. At a time where I should have been stressing out I felt calm, and also confident in Mr. Fakhoury. Mr. Fakoury expunged not one but four of my cases in a timely manner. I can honestly say I had an enjoyable experience throughout this process, and I highly recommend anyone who needs legal help to contact Mr. Fakhoury. Thank you again for helping me get a second chance to better my future!

- Alicia January 8, 2013

Matt Fakhoury is a great attorney. Very knowledgeable, great office and staff as well. Got my case dismissed — what a relief. Would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

- Criminal Defense Client August 22, 2012

I called Matt on Saturday night expecting to get his office voicemail. Instead it was his work cell and he answered on the second ring. I asked about expungement of a juvenile record and he took my name and number, promising to call me Monday. He called me Monday afternoon with all the answers to my questions! Free consultation and everything. He was nice and easy to talk to- I trust him completely with my information. I highly recommend him to anyone that asks me for a lawyer!

- Margaret August 18, 2012

I hired him two days ago and he got my case dismissed today. My case was no walk in the park. Fast, efficient, and to the point.
