A Pekin, Illinois Attorney Who Defends the Rights of the Injured and Wrongly Accused in Tazewell County

Call on 25 years of legal experience, just 300 feet from the Tazewell County Courthouse

With offices located opposite the Tazewell County Courthouse in Pekin, my general law practice represents the legal rights of residents and businesses in Pekin and surrounding Tazewell County in a wide range of civil and criminal matters.

An aggressive defender of your rights

I am a former union vice president and a former felony prosecutor who handled 20 murder trials — so I know tough.

I have also served as a Felony Assistant to the State’s Attorney in Peoria County, a Special Assistant to the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington, D.C., and a Judicial Law Clerk for the United States District Court, Western District of Texas, San Antonio Division.

So I’ve seen a lot. I am experienced.

I love fighting for justice and people’s rights, and between what I know and what I’ve seen in my more than 25 years of legal experience I am eminently qualified to help protect — and assert  —  your rights in civil and criminal matters.

A general practice with emphasis on personal injury, workers’ comp, criminal defense and family law

My practice has presented Tazewell County residents a business in a wide range of civil and criminal cases, but we do most of our work in four areas of law:

  • Personal Injury — I help people get compensation, and possibly some sense of closure, in many different types of personal injury matters, including automobile, trucking, boating, railroad and motorcycle accident, dog bite, head and spinal injury, nursing home litigation, slip and fall and wrongful death cases.
  • Workers’ Compensation — When you’re injured on the job, I help you recover lost wages and get compensation for your rehabilitation and retraining. I also get compensation for workers who become permanently disabled, and help survivors receive benefits and other compensation for the death of a loved one on the job.
  • Criminal Defense — I handle cases involving homicide, drug crime, DUI/DWI charges, juvenile law, misdemeanors, parole and probation, sex crimes, theft, weapons charges and even traffic violations. I also handle expungements.
  • Family Law — Besides adoptions, paternity suits and premarital agreements, I can help protect the rights of you and your children in divorce, child custody, spousal and child support and visitation matters.
