Claimed Lawyer Profile

I first earned my Masters in Business Administration at DePaul University, in 1977, and became an Associate National Trust Examiner for the U.S. Treasury Department.

I then went on to earn my Juris Doctorate (law degree), at The John Marshall Law School, in 1983. Subsequently, I began his legal career with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, where I learned how to prosecute all types of felonies, drug cases, DUI's and misdemeanors.

To sharpen my defense skills, I switched sides and became an Assistant DuPage County Public Defender, where I learned how to defend all types of felonies, drug cases, DUI's and misdemeanors. When I left the DuPage County Public Defender's Office, I had extensive bench and jury trial experience. I then took a position with a domestic relations firm, where I litigated diverse and intricate divorce cases, aided by my financial education and background.

In 1996, I developed a successful Dupage County Attorney practice, to serve both DuPage and Cook Counties, with concentration on criminal, DUI and personal injury. Mys sole intent is to provide the best legal representation possible and to give each client the personal attention he or she deserves.

For those of you who speak Spanish, I am capable of serving your needs and understanding your language. Call for a consultation at 630.467.0400 or email me at
