Chicago Federal Crimes Defense Attorney

As a criminal defense attorney with more than 40 years of experience, there is almost no federal crimes defense case I have not been involved with. My experience and knowledge of federal criminal law have earned me the respect of legal professionals throughout the Greater Chicago area, including being named as a Super Lawyer. In federal litigation work, I have had significant results at trial as well as in achieving reduced sentences and downward sentencing departures for my clients.

From offices in Chicago, I represent clients in the Northern District and the Central District of Illinois' federal court jurisdictions.

Throughout every case, I work closely with clients and always involve them in decision-making to ensure that they know all the factors related to their defense. Even if it appears the facts may be against them, I will work hard to ensure they fully understand their case and make the most effective plea available.

I have worked successfully on federal grand jury investigations and white collar crimes involving:

What Are RICO Cases?
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act is actually section 901(a) of the Organized Crime Control Act, passed by the United States Congress in October, 1970. RICO gives the government increased authority to charge and prosecute individuals and corporate executives believed to fraudulently apply corrupt influence to their financial advantage.
