Got me my cdl back . It was a long journey but with his tactics it was pulled off
- Gerald cummings
Jeff is a great lawyer. He was very honest with me and even recommend me do not hire him so I will not spend money because is not a lot that he can do on my case and he don’t wanna promise me nothing but I still hired him. And he hasn’t disappointed me, he did a great job on my case and dismissed it!
I’m very thankful for Jeff’s hard work and he is the lawyer that I will recommend to everyone!

Best attorney I’ve ever hired!
After losing my license for almost 10 years, hiring Jeff was the best decision I’ve ever made. He helped me through the process of getting permits to drive to work and then ultimately helped me get full reinstatement. To say he was God sent is an understatement. He is the best attorney I’ve ever had and I thank him from the bottom of my heart for helping me get my license back. If you want a great lawyer who is easy to talk to, knows the law, and will fight for you every step of the way, Jeff is your man!
Explanation of CDL laws
Jeff did a great job understanding my situation, gave me options then was able to take care of the issue in a timely manner. He understands the DUI laws when obtaining a CDL. Even took the time to call me and congratulate me after everything was figured out.
After being arrested for speaking up a little too loudly and expressing my freedom of speech I was arrested for obstructing justice. Jeff fall Imediately took care of this issue for me. Jeff hall the charges dropped and I didn’t even have a court appearence. Great family guy that doesn’t judge even when you have an embarrassing arrest video.
Excessive Speeding Ticket
I am a 20-year-old African-American college student from Chicago that got caught going 112 mph in a 70 mph limit in Princeton, IL The officier who pulled me over said that he was supposed to arrest me and have my car towed away, but since it was my first offense ever, he secured my license and provided me a ticket and a mandatory court appearance in Bureau County. First thing I did was research the top lawyers in the area because I knew I wasn’t going to get a good deal. As a young college student from Chicago, they were ready to make an example out of me. I came across Mr. Hall, liked what I read about him, and contacted him. He provided me with a consultation and a reasonable amount to cover the case. I wasn’t trying to pay it because I was being cheap. I went to court without an attorney and they offered me a conviction and a $1,000 fine. I told them my attorney will be here next court appearance, even though I did not have an attorney at the time, I wasn’t taking that deal, so they moved my court appearance to a later date. I contacted Mr. Hall again, paid the money, and hired him to cover my case. He told me every scenario that I was possibly going to face in this case. I caught the ticket a week before classes started in Houston, TX. There was no way I was coming back to Illinois from Texas for a court date. Mr. Hall worked out a deal with the state’s attorney that got my court date moved ahead, not once, but twice. I am a basketball player and we are in season. Therefore, I was in jeopardy of missing class, basketball practice, and losing money because of my actions. Mr. Hall ended up working a deal with them that lesssened the severity of my case to a petty offense. I ended up with 12-month supervision, paying court fees, enrolling in a driver’s improvement course, and NO CONVICTION. That was as good as it was going to get for me. This meant that I did not have to report my offense on job applications or anything else that required my behaviorial history. I am satisfied and pleased with the work Mr. Hall has done. That is an understatement. I highly recommend him to defend your case. He is very intelligent, respectful, and well-knowledgeable about his profession. Mr. Hall told me that there were not any guarantees that he will get a deal that satisfied me. Nonetheless, I was still confident in him. He got the job done. I made one of the best decisions in my life by hiring Attorney Hall.
Jeff was an amazing laywer. He walked me through every step of the way with great knowledge. He answered every question I had and made sure I understood exactly what was going on. He kept in contact with me to make sure I was on track. He had everything he always needed and treated me as if I was his only client. He cared for my well-being and best interest instead of just excepting whatever was offered. He made she I was well aware that the mistake I made was extremely wrong and made that very clear while at the same time letting me know that in life we make mistakes and if we take the right steps and focus on correcting the mistake that it wasn’t over. He kept me motivated through the process to keep pushing and now I have a fully reinstated drivers license. I am very thankful and proud to have Jeff by my side through this tough process. I strongly recommend him.
Unbelievable Criminal Defense *Excellent rating is an understatement*
I am a veteran with combat PTSD and a horrible history of alcohol abuse. I fell off the wagon again and received my third DUI within two months of getting my license back. I was arrested for this DUI after leaving the scene of an accident, which the court had complete video evidence and witnesses. I was facing a felony DUI with the possibility of 3-7 years of prison and a record that would suggest I serve some serious time. I asked a friend of mine that is a professional alcohol counselor for a referral to the BEST attorney. I was referred to Jeff Hall. I read the reviews on Avvo and was very impressed with his resume and reviews prior to meeting with him.
My consultation with Jeff definitely defines the type of man that he is. Jeff shared his patriotism and his selfless desire to help veterans. He also had a very real understanding of addiction and self medicating. Jeff altruistically wants to see people get there life back on track and manageable. I left the consultation extremely impressed and was given his number to call if I began to have troubles, understanding my mental health was not in a great place. I actually did reach out to Jeff on multiple occasions where he was able to effectively able to counsel me.
Jeff was able to continue my court cases so I could continue getting the medical care that I needed. I was approached with a deal of 90 days in jail. I was actually very content with the offer and was ready to serve time, but this was not part of Jeff’s plan and he advised me to continue. I went to the next court date expecting a slightly different deal (maybe the extra tickets dropped). Jeff went to the bargaining table with surmounting evidence against us, we had no case to a trial because the clear video evidence. Jeff stuck to his plan and blew that deal completely off the table! The timing and precision of his negotiating got me an unbelievable deal. The District Attorney even mentioned that he has never given a deal anything close to this before. I was offered misdemeanor DUI, 5 days in jail, and ALL the other tickets were dropped! I was speechless. I was sentenced almost identically to my previous 2nd DUI that was only 4 years prior.
You are not going to find a better criminal attorney than Jeff Hall. His perfect rating on Avvo is great, but it do not believe it does justice to the quality of attorney he truly is. There is not another attorney that can compare, proven by the fact that no other attorney has accomplished such a feat before!
I will be hiring Jeff’s services to reinstate my license and to pursue sealing my records in the future.
- Brian Bertuli
Jeff Hall and his staff were absolutely amazing! They were incredibly upfront and very honest right from the start. It is not an enjoyable process, and I strongly suggest never being in the position to need an Attorney:( However, if you do I would strongly recommend consulting and hiring Jeff Hall. After my first consultation Jeff clearly explained the processes and what my likely outcomes would be. Him and Chris Leasor were available during the entire process either by phone, or by email. In my opinion they helped coach me through an incredibly negative experience, and made it a bit more positive. Again I stress to not be in the position to have to have an attorney for a DUI (come on UBER!) but if you are….Def look to Jeff Hall and his team.
Professional & Responsive
If you need a lawyer to represent you on a charge of DUI, I recommend Jeffrey Hall. He is honest, professional, respected and responsive. I believe that he and his associates were able to achieve the best possible outcome for my case.
The best lawyer you could ask for, Not only treats you like family and not just a peicw of paper.
There not enough words to say how amazing of a lawyer Jeff Hall is. He treats you like family and not like your just a piece of paper or just another client for his pocket book. He goes over and beyond for you and then some. I was facing my 3rd DUI and looking at a Felony and 180 days in jail and not only that, this charge was going to revoke my probation I was on for a prior offence witch would have landed me most likely in prison. I explained my situation and how I was a single father and would loose my daughter if I did any jail time and how the felony would make life really hard being on my record. Not only did he take the time to listen to my story but he took the time to get to know me and made me feel like he truly cared about me as a person, he made me feel at ease and that I was in great hands through out the whole process. Jeff is there for you to listen and will talk you through anything you need and explains in a way you understand and doesn’t just tell you what you want to here. Well as I mentioned before I went to Jeff Hall’s office (witch I should include is a stunning office) I was facing my 3rd DUI, a minimum of 180 days in jail, a felony on my record, a revocation of my probation, loosing a job and possibly my daughter. Well through his hard work and dedication to me I ended up with only a misdemeanor, 2 years probation and some community service hours that I have no problem doing considering. Oh and lets not forget saved me from getting my prior probation revoked, He literally not only saved my life and my future but my daughter loosing time with her dad. Again I can not say enough good things about this man, he went over and beyond for me and the people I recommended to Jeff says the same thing to me all the time. That’s there so grateful I recommended them to him. I also would like to mention a few things about why I said he truly cares about you. During one of the many conversations we had on him calling just to check up on how I was doing he convinced me that going to rehab would be a great Idea for myself and my daughter that I would go to rehab and I took his advice and have over 14 months clean with his support. He also supported me on going back to school and I’m now on my way to become a drug and alcohol counselor so now I can pay it forward and help others. Thank you Jeff Hall for treating me not only like a person but like a family member, putting my mind to ease and doing more then I could ever ask for or imagine. You are a great man and I forever will be thankful. Oh I almost forgot. I had written down the wrong date for one of my court dates and had missed it, Not only did Jeff do everything and some to get ahold of me he sat at court all day and early evening until he changed the states attorney’s mind to not give me a warrant for my arrest witch would of probably messed up all his hard work. Also Id like to mention Jeff is just as good at reinstatement of your license. Jeff has gotten every single one I sent his way there license back the first time they went to Springfield. So Finally if your looking for a lawyer that will do everything possible a lawyer can do for you. someone that will treat you like family and not just a piece of paper and that will go over and beyond for you then I highly recommend Jeff Hall. He will help put your mind to ease and get you more then best possible outcome you could imagine and is worth every penny and then some.
A Consummate professional
Attorney Hall represented me in a driving reinstatement case. Saying that I have horrible driving record would be an understatement. Through his representation, Attorney Hall obtained driving relief for me on the first attempt after four DUI convictions. He and his staff were highly professional, knowledgeable, and skilled. Unlike most firms, they are extremely responsive and keep you updated throughout the duration of your case. Attorney Hall genuinely cares and strives to achieve the best possible results for his clients. As someone who has been involved with and worked for law firms for nearly 20 years, I can attest that he is the go-to attorney in Central Illinois for DUI, driving reinstatement, and all other criminal matters.
Straight forward lawyer
I was charged with DUI and hired Jeff after speaking with another attorney. I was worried about the DUI and my professional career. I voiced to Jeff about my anxiety with going to court. Jeff understood and would have me in and out of the courtroom at a timely matter. He answered all my questions promply. He also worked very hard on my case, which he got all charges dismissed without having to go to trial in one of the toughest counties-woodford. Too top it offhe was affordable. Money very well spent. Words cannot explain how great of attorney he is. He even gave me a life lesson talk after the last court date.
I was arrested and scared my career was going to be affected. I met with attorney Hall after meeting with a different one. He really took his time with me and he answered all my questions and set me at ease. He told me how it was likely going to end up and after talking with my family we hired him. His fee was affordable and he worked hard for me. First time hiring an attorney and I didn’t know what would happen but Im so glad I hired him. His attorney that works for him (Chris) was awesome too. They gave me a full case analysis and I totally understood and made things simple. Attorney Hall ended up resolving the case and saving my license with my driving record clean and nothing on my criminal record. Im so glad I hired him and chris.
Misdemeanor Aggravated Speeding
Class A misdemeanor speeding (118 in 55). Jeff and his associate Chris were able to work out a deal for court supervision and a traffic safety class, keeping a conviction off my record. This could have been so much worse. They explain each step of the process and answer any questions. Happy with the outcome of my case.
- Adam Estes
Speeding Ticket – Class A misdemeanor
Jeff and team did a great job for me. They were able to get my Class A misdemeanor changed to a petty offense. I highly recommend contacting them if you ever find yourself with a misdemeanor speeding ticket.
Excellent honest lawyer
I contacted Jeff when I received a DUI while driving on revoked, he was very professional and helpful and I hired Jeff immediately and he was able to reduce what could have been a felony to a misdemeanor. I was very pleased with all of his help and being a honest straight forward attorney that resulted in a great outcome. I would highly recommend Jeff Hall to anyone in need!
Working with Jeff Hall was a dream in an otherwise nightmare situation. After being charged with a felony at a festival, he ensured me that everything will be okay whilst updating me every step of the way. The charged were dropped without me personally having to go to court. Jeff is a caring individual who works hard for you. If you’re ever in trouble, Jeff Hall is your guy!
Prompt, professional assistance + favorable outcome
Mr. Hall was excellent to work with! I had received a traffic ticket for a serious speeding violation classified as a Class B misdemeanor when driving through Peoria, and was required to appear in court although I lived nearly 2 hours away. As I had never been in court before, I found his contact information based on some reviews online and e-mailed him to see if there was any way he could assist. He responded to the initial inquiry I sent within a day with full explanations of potential resolution options, and was able to delay the court date to allow him and Mr. Leasor, another attorney in his office, to work through options with the traffic prosecutor. Not only was he able to remove the requirement for me to appear in court altogether, but succeeded in reducing the degree of severity of the prosecution and therefore the sentencing to a fine and six-month court supervision, with no penalty on my driving record or reporting to my insurance company if there are no violations during those six months. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Hall and Mr. Leasor kept me informed of the status. They were very straightforward regarding the fees charged and clear about what could result in additional costs, also indicating that they would not proceed with anything that could result in additional costs unless they received my approval in advance. (Nothing ended up requiring additional costs, but this approach was still quite reassuring). Due to the excellent customer service, professional handling of the entire matter (and satisfactory outcome!), I would highly recommend Mr. Hall to anyone in need of legal assistance in central Illinois.
Mom’s and Dad’s THIS is the Man to help you.
We had an occasion to need an attorney for our son who, had already moved home from ISU. He got into trouble when he went back to Bloomington Normal to visit friends and it turned out that the trouble was serious.
We found Jeff through some friends in Chicago and began speaking to him A WEEK before the charges were actually brought. Jeff was THE BEST to us. He used almost a day of his own family time to talk to us and “hold our hand’ through what we ‘thought’ might happen.
When it did and our son was arrested, Jeff was with us 100%. He explained the bonding out procedure, worked with our son, got his investigator to begin immediately. We had a slim chance to prove that what our son was charged with didn’t actually happen in the way he had been charged.
Jeff and his team worked tirelessly for a week, leaving no stone unturned, to make this happen. Anytime I called; frantic, afraid, worried he said” it’s ok. stay calm . We’ve got this”.
He was right, too. In a miraculous turn of events the charges were dropped and our son can go back to his life.
I can’t promise that will happen with your child, but I can tell you that this is the man you want with you while you go on your journey no matter the results. He is kind, caring, supportive, smart, the hardest working and will turn “heaven and earth” to help you.
God forbid we ever find ourselves in this position, but I am so grateful that when we did it was with Jeff Hall.
Thank you Jeff from the bottom of our hearts..for being the BEST lawyer and the nicest guy!
I trusted this firm with my child! And, I would again!!!
I do not want to give my name or tell the sex of my child because they were able to get this taken care of without the case going to trial. My child was arrested (without cause) at the Summer Camp Music Festival for serious charges (that were fabricated). It could have affected their life! However, that is oftentimes the situation when you are arrested without justification: The law sees you as scum without even thinking you might be innocent. They think the police must be right! If Jeff, and Chris from his office, would not have taken the time, care, and known how to wield their knowledge and power – my child may have had no one to help them get treated fairly and without the recourse that could have affected them unjustly. My child can now go on to live their life unscathed because they WERE innocent for what they were charged with and Jeff and Chris made sure the Court knew that!!! If you love your child, trust this firm. It may be one of the best things you can do to help your child grow safely!!!
Anxiety after an arrest? Call Jeff Hall ASAP! He’s The Expert on DUI and criminal law in Illinois
I reached out to Jeff after I was arrested for a traumatic DUI incident. I am a CDL holder and I didn’t know what to expect. I met with 2 attorneys before Jeff and they seemed very “to the point” and uncaring as to my situation (like they had to be somewhere else). At the first meeting, Jeff went over all outcomes he anticipated, did not exaggerate, appeared confident, communicated well, and set a realistic expectation for me. The other two attorneys said they would fight the case hard without really explaining how they would. When they quoted me a fee that seemed a bit high, two friends told me about Jeff and I researched him. I found he was involved with changing DUI laws to make them more fair and I felt he could protect me from long term consequences. I decided to meet with him and my anxiety went down from there (I hadn’t slept much since the arrest.
I hired Jeff and from there, he kept me updated on my case although he didn’t call me all the time and I liked that. He told me that he would update me when it was important because he didn’t want me to worry seeing him call me all the time.
After a few court dates I didn’t have to show up for (he appeared early and moved the dates as the case progressed), he analyzed my case, provided a detailed case analysis, and informed me of all the steps ahead.
His associate, Chris Leasor, is a former chief DUI prosecutor so he assisted as well. When you hire Jeff, you hire Chris as well and both of them working on my case really gave me a better advantage on my case.
In the end, they worked out a deal that 1) did not suspend/DQ my CDL and 2) had no jail time, fines were much less than I expected, and 3) he was just a genuinely nice, caring person.
If you have met with other attorneys and you just aren’t sure, meet with Jeff and Chris. They will alleviate your concerns, educate you on the entire process, and protect you from long term consequences. In hindsight, I would’ve paid Jeff a lot more than he charged me! He was definitely worth every penny.
BEST DUI lawyer by FAR in Peoria, Tazewell and surrounding areas.
My experience with Jeff Hall was overall outstanding! He exceed my expectations. He was very upfront and honest with me from the beggining making me feel at ease and excited to get my Licence back. I lost privalages due to 2 duis and a drug charge. Violation of probation and many other messy violations. Jeff was very knowledgeable and treated me with respect and made me feel as if bad things do happen to really good people. Now, it was time just fix it and mve on. I like his confidence and attitude. He is very prompt at responding to my questions and directed me in all the right directions. He is a “go getter” and knows the laws! He knows how to get the job done the first time!! I recommend him to anyone with DUI or Drug Charges. Thank u Jeff Hall!!!
After The motion of hearing for my case I was given an offer by the state and it was after that, that I hired Jeff to be my attorney for the case instead of having a PD. He was given all the police reports and after reviewing the video of my arrest he was able to set up a new agreement with the state that would result from me recieving a felony to a misdemeanor. He’s a great guy, easy to communicate with and very helpful and resourceful!
Jeff is awesome
Jeff is an awesome guy I was fighting a case for a 1 1/2 and today he got the case dismissed he has been so great this whole year making sure and telling me everything going on with my case he didn’t miss a beat and I am forever greatful for that…. Thank u again jeff your awesome
Jeff is fantastic!! I was involved in a significant DUI accident where the prosecutor would not budge on a plea deal. After 8 months, I had to plead guilty and my case was set for sentencing. Jeff handled the sentencing like a true professional and made sure to hit on every positive piece of mitigation during sentencing in order to get me court supervision. During the months before the sentencing, Jeff met with me several times to give me advice on proactive things I could be doing and helped ease the anxiety of the consequences I was facing. He never lost his confidence in me, and it paid off to the most lenient sentence I could have received. My case wasn’t the run of the mill DUI – it was much more complicated and he still saved me from serious penalties. He’s a great guy, has amazing talent and knowledge with this stuff and a great attorney overall. Thank you Jeff!!! So glad I found you!
My daughter is 19, she is autistic and has behavior problems that are sometimes out of her control. She got aggressive towards a medical personnel and that woman pressed charges. She was being charged with a felony! (It was a felony Because it was a medical personnel) Jeff Hall worked hard with the prosecutors and kept in constant contact with me keeping me updated as to what was going to happen. Needless to say he was able to get all charges dropped. As they should have been considering the situation. He took time personally to explain to her how she needs to use coping skills, making sure she understood why she wasn’t charged and how Not to make a bad situation worse. When my daughter gets escalated, there is no controlling her. She cannot help it and doesn’t even know what she is doing once she is in that state of mind! Shame on the nurse who is in that field because she should Not be working in a physc unit!! But kuddos to Jeff Hall for being so good at his job and such a caring and compassionate person!!! Highly recommend him! Thank you so much!!
Jeff Hall did an awesome job defending me.
Jeff Hall is a very compassionate person who has done a great job for me. Jeff is easy to talk to and willing to work with his clients financially. He is knowledgeable and professional. He did an excellent job communicating with the prosecutor and with me. He always returned my calls and emails in a very timely manner. He was able to settle my charges to my satisfaction. I would recommend Jeff Hall without hesitation.
Exceeded All Expectations
Aside from completely succeeding with the legal matters for which I hired Mr. Hall, which were both serious and complex, Jeffery was a true pleasure to work with. With such overwhelming and debilitating circumstances jeopardizing my freedom and very means of survival, his immediate, precise and knowledgeable assessment of the situation, communicated with such articulation, honesty, optimism and confidence, was a genuine relief for me beginning with our very first phone conversation. In retrospect, I realized that I had found myself with something much more than an attorney; I had discovered a councelor of the most professional and competent caliber, at perhaps the most critical junction in my life thus far.
The Premier Summer Camp Defense Team
I got arrested on the way to Summer Camp Music Festival with a personal amount of marijuana and multiple smoking devices. I am a prominent real estate broker in Chicago and could NOT have this affect my career. After calling a few attorneys, Jeff was the first that seemed to actually care about my situation. My goal was to NOT get a criminal conviction on my record, and thats exactly what Jeff did. On top of that, he calmed my fear and anxiety about the situation. I trusted him to take care of it, and he did, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
Instead of having a criminal conviction or probation requiring urine analysis, I received NO conviction and only had to pay a small monetary fine to make it so its like this never even happened.
On top of everything, Jeff appeared in court for me, so I did not need to travel or miss work once, and was able to plea over FaceTime in a gas station parking lot while driving between cities on Umphrey’s tour.
I will be attending Summer Camp again in a few months, but learned the hard way its best not to bring anything. I would recommend you do the same, but if you insist on risking it, have Jeff’s number ready.
One stop shop!
Jeff represented me on my 2nd DUI. I knew the case was strong against me but Jeff was incredibly helpful from the very beginning. I called his office and he responded the same day. We set an appointment and during the consultation (he spent a little over an hour with me), he explained everything I was realistically facing. He gave me a very informative information packet and after I hired him, he helped me so much. He gave me coupons on how to save money on different costs that accrue from a DUI arrest (saved me $150 on the BAIID installation with his coupon) and he (and his associate attorney Chris) guided me through the entire DUI process. We recently resolved my case and even though I blew over the limit, I received a very acceptable deal and now I’m hiring Jeff for my license reinstatement. His advice helped me and now we’re gearing up to go to Springfield to get a restricted license so I can still drive. If you want lawyers that genuinely care for you, respond in a timely manner, and make you not worry so much, Jeff is your attorney to hire.
A very Nice and Trustworthy Lawyer.
I had received a speeding ticket in the construction area going home for Winter Break. This man was able to reduce it to a regular speeding ticket and was able get the court to give me court supervision. Mr. Jeffrey Hall made this process fast and easy. Always kept contact with me (Text and Call). Highly recommend him for your Speeding and Traffic Tickets.

I hired Mr. Hall to help me get my license reinstated from DUI revocation. I attempted a few times to achieve this on my own and realized an attorney is a must. Not having a knowledgeable attorney help me prepare left me in a more difficult situation than I should’ve been in. Mr. Hall spent many hours consulting with my evaluator to straighten this out. I received an RDP and subsequently full reinstatement. Mr. Hall is knowledgeable of the laws and processes and I do feel he went above and beyond to help me achieve my goal. He will let you know ahead of time exactly what questions he will ask you, guide you through the appropriate answers and give you a clear idea what to expect at the actual hearing. Although still nervous I definitely felt much more comfortable going in with him than I did going at it alone previously. In the end, I found myself in a bind due to timing delays and he really came through for me when it counted the most, avoiding a lapse in driving privileges. He always got back to me with questions I had. The only regret I have in hiring him is that I didn’t do it sooner.
I owe my life to jeff
He is very helpful and cordial to me and helped me to reduce my speeding ticket to a petty traffic violation.His response to my emails is amazing.To be short , i owe my life to him.
Top of the Line!
Always answered my calls, always explained everything in detail in ways that I could understand. Actually recommended that we go to trial because the prosecutor’s case was weak and got my case dismissed! Not some plead it out type. Actually has bargaining power with local prosecutors. Straight shooter. Worth every Penny!
Amazing Lawyer!! very professional and extremely helpful
I am extremely thankful for all the amazing help Jeff offered me. He really tries to get to know their clients and go above and beyond to obtain the best results. He helped me throughout the entire legal case process, he will always give me the attention I required and kept me well informed. Even after my case was closed and dismissed he still helped me in any sort of documentation or paperwork I needed in a very short time. I appreciate everything he did for my case and all the time he invested on it, he is a great professional and he really loves to help people. Thank you for everything Jeff!
Extremely professional and practical traffic law service. Call Hall.
After facing a pretty severe felony traveling to Summer Camp Music Festival, I contacted Jeff out of recommendation from another person who had contracted his services before. Mr. Hall not only resolved my case in a speedy (2 court appearances) and professional manner, he researched other cases extensively and helped to find other situations similar and in favor of my position. My felony was reduced to a misdemeanor and eligible for expungement in later time. He is a prime example of what the experienced and effective lawyer looks like today.
Jeff Hall and his team was so amazingly helpful to us and had gone above and beyond the call of duty when we contacted him about my friend’s case. I found Jeff just a couple of days before my friend’s hearing, and at that time his public defender was recommending him to take the plead deal and serve jail time. Before we even paid Jeff the retainer fee, he stepped him and represented my friend and bought us more time. Because of him, my friend, who was looking at years of jail time from his criminal charge to probation only. They stay on top of things through the entire process, explained to us the strategies and the law tirelessly. Him and his team made us feel like we have found a powerful ally in our fight from day one. Jeff and his team are truly wonderful people who are not only excellent at what they do, but also compassionate and understanding. They were quite literally a godsend to us and I am beyond grateful to them!

Definately the best!
Goes above and beyond. Knows the law, is focused on clients needs and always answers questions without rushing. Makes you feel like your needs are important. Def recommend highly.
I got pinched at Summer Camp Music Festival! Jeff saved my future!
This review has been long overdue. Last year, while on the way to Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, IL, I was arrested by police before I got to the festival. They pulled me over for “following too closely,” even though I was nearly 2 car lengths behind the car in front of me. The cop pulls me over and before he comes up to my window, he has the canines walking around my car. The dog “signals” and next thing you know they are searching my car. They do find controlled substances and I thought my life was ruined.
I called Jeff and he answered all my questions, did not rush to get off the phone, and appeared genuinely concerned. He quoted me a reasonable fee to represent me and looking back, everything he told me about what to expect turned out to be spot on. He ended up getting my felony amended to a misdemeanor and I didn’t even have to appear in court. We did one of the first “skype” pleas in the nation and I was able to resolve my case without even appearing in court. I don’t have any conviction on my record and I can expunge the offense in the future.
I highly recommend Jeff Hall. He really made me think differently about lawyers (in a good way). I definitely owe him more than the fee that I paid him. He would respond to my calls quickly, he would always talk to me until I didn’t have any more questions, and he actually seemed to care about my predicament. If you hire him, you will be treated with respect and he will be “real” with you.
the best ever!!!!!
Mr. Hall gave me his goal outcome of the case and a worst case sanaerio; he went above and beyond my expectations as well as his own. He had no doubt in his own abilities. He absolutely did more than i could expect or immagine. Hes amazing and i will reffer him to anypne for anything, big or small, he can handle it. Without going into too much detail about my case, Mr. Hall got the whole case dismissed. I could not ask for anything more. I appriciate everything he did. He gave me another chance of a lifetime.
Jeff H & Chris L
Very great thank you guys so much now I can get back on my career I would recommend Chris leasor or Jeff anytime theirs a problem!
Got my driving privileges back after 17yrs
I hired Jeff to help me get my driving privileges back from Illinois. It had been nearly 17 years since i lost my privileges. I moved out of state and I could not obtain a driver’s license in any state due to this “hold” on my license. Jeff helped me by finding a method to expedite the process. He assisted me with application and sure enough, the State of Illinois granted our petition and lifted the hold on my driving record. I now have a driver’s license from my home state and i am driving lawfully for the first time in 17 years. Thank you Jeff Hall for helping to to get my life back.I got a job right a way, because of my License and can now support myself and my family.
Administrative Hearings Attorney
Jeff is the go to guy when it comes to Secretary of State Administrative Hearings! These hearings are complicated to begin with, and with out Jeff Hall’s knowledge and experience in these matters there’s no way I would have had the successful outcome that I did. Jeff knows exactly what is required, who to talk to, and how to build a successful case in these matters. I wouldn’t recommend tackling one of these hearings without representation, but I would certainly recommend calling Jeff, because no one will know how to prepare you like he does.
Definitely worth it!
Mr. Hall and his associate attorney, Chris Leasor, both worked together on my DUI. I was terrified after being arrested. At the first meeting, they both made me feel better about the entire process. Mr. Hall explained all the different outcomes and told me the most likely outcome. Turns out, he worked out a better deal for me than we first thought. My DUI was in Peoria County and since Mr. Leasor is the former chief DUI prosecutor there, they knew everyone, knew how the system worked from the other side, and walked me through the entire process with only a couple court dates required for me to appear at. I would’ve lost my job but we worked out a deal that would keep me employed, keep me out of jail, and keep my driver’s license from being revoked. Me and my family owe Mr. Hall (and Mr. Leasor) a debt of gratitude. I definitely recommend Jeff Hall and his law firm, Hall, Rustom & Fritz.
Their fees are reasonable and affordable. I had their direct contact info and could get messages to them at any time. They responded regularly in a timely manner and never kept me guessing what was going to happen next. It was my second time needed a lawyer and they really made it better for me when compared to my first attorney.

Jeffrey Hall did an excellent job on my traffic case , he didn’t just do a good job he did a great job , Jeff managed to get my case dismissed and in doing so kept my CDL clean and clear and for a truck driver that’s a big thing. Thanks Jeff great job couldn’t of asked for better results.
FOID CARD APPEAL.
If your FOID card has been revoked due to a Hospital Stay for Alcohol and or Depression you need to call Jeff Hall. Jeff is very experienced when this happens. Jeff is very passionate in reference to this due to the fact that if you are not a (CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER) your FOID card should not be revoked. On March 8th, 2013 Gov Quinn signed into Law Public Act 97-1167 which allows you to seek treatment without having to worry about your FOID card being revoked. Jeff is a professional. Jeff is helping me in this process and it is moving in the right direction. Jeff does not let up. I have been in Law Enforcement for over 16 years and have dealt with several Defense Attorneys and Jeff is by far a guy you want on your side to fight for your rights. The system with the State Police needs a severe overhaul until then its unfortunate if you want your card back have to fight for it and let Jeff help.
PUBLIC ACT 97-1167 PASSES
Public Act 97-1167, which was signed into law by Governor Quinn on March 8,
2013, finally allows police officers to seek treatment for alcohol abuse disorders
without fear of losing their FOID card and the concomitant unpaid leave. In the
past, officers who voluntarily sought treatment for alcohol abuse and were
treated in an institution risked the Department of Health notifying the State Police
of the inpatient admission. The State Police would then revoke the officer’s
FOID card and the City of Chicago could put the officer on unpaid leave as a result of failing to
fulfill one of the requirements of employment – having a valid FOID card. The FOID Act was
never intended to work such an injustice on police officers voluntarily seeking treatment. This
new legislation which amends the FOID Act will prevent such abuse from occurring in the future.
Public Act 97-1167 prohibits the State Police from revoking an officer’s FOID card
where he or she has voluntarily sought treatment for an alcohol abuse disorder and the treatment
was rendered in a facility defined under the Firearms Owners Identification Act as a mental
institution (which includes many hospitals). It was passed after a long legislative battle, which
included the passage of House Bill 4673 by both houses; the amendatory veto by agreement of
House Bill 4673 by Governor Quinn on August 17, 2012; and the passage of a new measure
(House Bill 1273) in early January of the veto session.
Public Act 97-1167 also amends the Firearms Owners Identification Card Act to provide
a procedure by which active law enforcement officers who are denied, revoked or have had
his/her FOID card seized because the officer has been a patient in a mental institution, can apply
to the Director of the State Police requesting relief if the officer did not act in a manner threatening
to the him or herself, another person or the public, as determined by the treating clinical
psychologist or physician.
The new law would not have been possible without the tireless effort of our legislative
sponsors, Representative Carli and Senator Muñoz, who were with us during each leg of this
journey. Representative Carli is a current Chicago Police Sergeant and Rep. Munoz is a former
Chicago Police Officer.
I did not have a good night sleep since I got myself in trouble (retail theft) But Mr. Jeffrey Hall and Mr. Christ Lousor did listened and help me through my situation and now I can sleep well. I am very grateful and fully recommended. Because they are the attorneys you can trust and count on.
Worry/Distracted…Depression/Anxiety girl in program!
First of all, Mr. Hall moved so fast the day I called him in order to prevent for my 20 year old daughter get arrested, because she didn’t go to court on the first date of one of the tickets. Then, he was very clear in explaining what was the seriousness of each ticket. He changed the court date to a more convenient date for us. Even on the day before, he sent me an e-mail in the morning asking me if I wanted to move the court date to another day so we didn’t have to drive during a winter storm, but I didn’t see until next morning. The day of the court, he came to my daughter and I and explained again how some of the rules in IL had changed for first offenders (something he doesn’t believe in) and negotiated to have the Class A misdemeanor dismissed and the judge accepted it, but only if my daughter claimed herself guilty to the “minor” ticket, which was the speeding and doubling the fee. Mr. Hall made me feel very confident from the first call and he proved to be even a better lawyer.
My court date was fast approaching and I, like a lamb lost in the woods, was ignoring all of the tell tale warnings of my most certain demise. I contacted Jeff and he guided me through this most terrible experience. I am happy to have had Mr. Hall on my side as my lawyer, my sheperd.
I needed a find a lawyer for a traffic ticket for a friend who lives in a different state. It was stressful to find just the right lawyer for him over the internet. After choosing Jeff Hall we experienced professionalism, honestly sharing the scenarios of the case, and continuous contact with updates. Jeff does not take no for an answer and negotiates to achieve the desired results. We could not have been happier with the service we received.

A Life Changing Effort
In 1997 I pleaded guilty to the charge of misdemeanor Domestic Battery for a very minor incident involving my wife and myself and unknowingly forfeited my 2nd amendment right to bear arms and my Illinois FOID card. I have been an avid hunter all my life and wanted to teach my grandchildren gun safety and ethical hunting. Without my FOID card I was unable to take them hunting to pass on the lessons passed on to me by my father and grandfather.
In 2009 I went back to court to see if I could get the court to order the Illinois State Police to issue me a FOID card. Based on my perfectly clean record before and after the Domestic Battery Issue the judge granted my request and issued the order. I immediately sent off my application to the Illinois State Police and after considerable run around received a “fake” FOID card in the mail. The card in no way resembled a current FOID card. I could hear the Illinois State Police laughing as they put it in the envelope to send to me. No vendor would have accepted this card for a firearm or ammunition purchase. I felt overwhelmed and thought I had lost the battle.
In 2014 I decided to try one last time to get a proper FOID card. I did some internet research and discovered Attorney Jeff Hall. From his website it appeared he was exactly the attorney I was looking for. I call Jeff and over a thirty minute phone and a short office visit I knew I had found the right guy. Jeff is passionate about his work and his clients and was great about staying in contact with me letting me know exactly where he was with the case at all times. He knew I was getting a raw deal from the Illinois State Police stated he would do everything he could to correct the situation. That is exactly what Jeff did! I have finally received my official FOID card and I have Jeff to thank for that. I can now go hunting with my wife and grandchildren again. Life is good!
I hired Jeff at the beginning of November 2013 and we finished our case in March 2014. Throughout the entire case Jeff was very supportive and knowledgeable of everything. He returned all emails or calls within a day and majority of the time within hours. He is very easy going and always looked out for my best interest. He was never looking for an easy way out to close the case with just any outcome. I was facing a felony charge with a prior charge on my record. This felony conviction could have potentially ended my career goals that I am currently pursing. Plus, I already had a second chance, so the prior didn’t make the case easy. However, Jeff took my best interest into consideration and ended up getting the felony dropped down to a misdemeanor with probation conditional discharge. Therefore, my schooling and work were not affected and I couldn’t be more pleased with Jeff’s work.
Jeff Hall is the man to call!!!!!
I’ve been a client of Mr. Halls for a few years now and I must say he has provided the best legal help anyone could ask for… Espicially in my case. Jeff was a bulldog in the court room when representing me. He kept me up to date on my legal situation and did not sugar coat anything… Overall Mr. Hall got me the best deal anyone could ask for under my own circumstances.. Jeff Hall hats off too you… I have the opportunity to be in my sons life because of this man… I’d highly reccomend Jeff Hall if you want someone who will work hard and fight hard in your defense…
Amazing, Highly recommended!
Jeff Hall is an amazing attorney. He is informative and definitely knows what he’s doing. He worked with the prosecutors to get me the best plea possible and had my best interest at heart. I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend him as an attorney. If you want things done right, he is your man!
- C. Scott
A Greatful Client of a Great Lawyer
Jeff went above and beyond his being just a lawyer. Never felt like I was bothering him with any little question. He was honest, and explained what was going on so I wasn’t lost, did a lot of prep work for questions. I went to a SOS hearing a few times without a Lawyer and believe me if I had Jeff as a lawyer the 1st time it would of save me a few years of not having driving privileges. I would recommended Jeff Hall to as a lawyer, help you at the SOS, and DUI to get your driving privileges back
I hired Jeff when I was facing a felony charge. I had never been in trouble but I was extremely worried and had no idea what would happen. Jeff explained everything to me so I understood and I could tell that he was a good lawyer. He got my charges dropped the day of my first court appearance and I am extremely grateful!! Thank you so much Jeff!!!
Jeffrey R. Hall
I was clueless when I was first charged with my offenses. Jeffrey was very helpful in helping me understand what I was charged for and how to best handle it. He continues to keep in contact with me and answer some of the silly questions I have, even when they are sometimes not related to the case. I was able to have a peace of mind throughout my case and was never left waiting for a response.
I was originally picked up for a DUI and two misdemeanor cannabis charges. Jeff was able to get my DUI down with court supervision and both of the misdemeanor charges were dropped.
The Right Choice…..
I found myself in need of legal representation for a felony charge. I am a licensed professional and my career, freedom and livelihood were at stake. Therefore, finding appropriate representation was critical. I talked with several attorneys and was immediately impressed with Jeff Hall. I found him to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and straight forward. He stood out as “the one” that would fight for me. After meeting with Jeff, I knew I had made the right choice in hiring him to represent me. He was tough, aggressive and yet caring. He started working on my case the minute I left his office and had the charge against me reduced to a misdemeanor by the end of the day. He consistently kept me informed of new developments, my options and the legal process in general. I was thankful for his straight forward communication and honesty. Being in a situation I’d never been in before, I had many questions and concerns. We communicated regularly, and he always responded promptly to my inquiries. A negative outcome of my case would have detrimentally affected every aspect of my future. This was a very painful journey, and Jeff was there for me all the way to the end. Thanks to his persistence, commitment and strong work ethic, my case had a positive resolution. I would recommend Jeff without hesitation to anyone in need of an attorney. Thank-you Jeff for everything!
Jeff is a very well informed Lawyer who works quickly and swiftly and really does have his clients best interest in mind at all times and I would recommend him to anyone.
Mr. Hall goes above and beyond.
Let me start by saying Mr Hall does his job and does it well. He cares about his clients and will go to bat for you. I had a case that lasted 2 years and Mr hall stuck with it and didn’t take no for answer and finally after many court appearances and much deliberation between him and the prosecutor he got the outcome I wanted. I’m 120% satisfied with the job he did. Thanks Jeff much appreciated ..
Above and Beyond!
I cannot imagine any better outcome for my case than what was reached by Mr. Hall. He very promptly returned my call to set up an appointment and I was able to meet with him within the week. I was very upset about my situation but I was relieved to find that Mr. Hall was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, and he explained the entire process to me. I was embarrassed to even need an attorney, but Mr. Hall was never judgmental. I put my future in his hands and I am so glad I did! In the end, Mr. Hall was able to work out a resolution so that my offense would never even show up on my record, when I was previously looking at jail time. He was very professional and I can not stress enough what a wonderful job he did!
Jeff Hall went above and beyond the call of duty when representing me for an improper DUI charge. Not only did he get the charges dropped, but he was able to get my license reinstated.
Thank you Mr. Hall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Experienced criminal defense attorney
Mr. Hall is an experienced former prosecutor who now uses his expertise to assist clients with criminal defense needs throughout the state of Illinois. He has handled numerous matters for clients with prompt and successful results.
- Michael Fritz
Jeff did a wonderful job with my case. He talked to me for free and answered all of my questions for me up front. He was very prepared for the court date and truly impressed me with his knowledge and how much effort he put into my case. He was able to get it dropped and i got off of everything. I have worked with a few lawyers in the past and have not been very pleased until i had Jeff represent me. I now have a lawyer that i can trust and will go to from here on out if i need anything at all. I highly recommend Jeff for any reason you may need a lawyer you will not be disappointed.
illegal consumption by minor defense
Jeff did an excellent job for us when our 18yo got in trouble for underage drinking. Not to condone minor consumption, but the laws on the books are quite harsh. Jeff helped to understand the ramifications and our options.
Jeff was not afraid to put up a fight with the state’s attorney and was prepared on our court date. Utlimately, Jeff worked to get charges amended and all ended well w/ no serious impact.
Jeff Hall saved me big time!
I hired Jeff Hall after my sister referred me (she had hired Jeff for my nephew’s underage drinking ticket). She recommended him and told me he would make sure everything works out for my case. (My nephew was at risk of losing his driving privileges and Jeff figured out a way to save him from being suspended).
I was charged with a more serious crime (a felony) and I needed an attorney that was experienced, communicated well, and was trustworthy. Jeff met with me for free and was very knowledgeable, easy to understand, answered all my questions, was confident and most importantly, I left his office feeling better about my whole situation. I went to his office feeling so anxious and I left without any anxiety. He instructed me on exactly what I needed to do and ultimately, my case was dismissed and I pled to a much lesser offense (a misdemeanor) because Jeff built my defense and communicated with the prosecutor who decided it was best to dismiss the felony. I was nervous about attorneys because you always hear bad stories. Jeff proved me wrong and since I still have my job and my freedom, I owe him a lot. Thanks again, Jeff!
Jeff is the best! He was patient, calm and confident in my dealings with him which helped me to feel good about working with him. He managed to get things handled and thrown out in three weeks which was a full week before the court date. Will definately refer my friends to him.
Hard working and very intelligent
I have used Jeff for counsel the past few years. The majority of my issues were out of state issues and Jeff did extensive research on the laws in my state. The recommendations he provided were well thought out, very strategic, and resulted in extremely successful results.
I would DEFINITELY recommend using Jeff Hall if you want someone who will look under every rock to uncover the strategy needed for a successul result.
Always available and knows what he’s doing.
Since I’ve first used Jeff Hall as an attorney, he’s always been there for me. Even when I call him last-minute, he seems to pull time out of the air for me and help me in any way he can. He has helped me on numerous driving citations, whether it be court supervision or finding a way to dismiss them completely. He has also been there to oversee my home closing documents and provide great advice. What I find most important is that he almost always answers his phone when you need to reach him. If not, he returns my calls promptly. I recommend Jeff Hall to all my friends and he has never let them down. I will continue to recommend him any chance I can.
Great, trustworthy lawyer!
Jeff helped me get court supervision for a speeding ticket for the third time to eliminate my insurance rates going up. He also was able to get a fine and ticket for driving without proof of insurance dropped. He went above and beyond being flexible with his time to show up to court with me. He explained everything that would happen once we went into the courtroom and made me feel very comfortable.
Jeff went above and beyond to help with traffic violations that may have resulted in suspension of my driver’s license. He has given me excellent legal advice in other areas as well.
Great attorney and counselor!
I hired Jeff after I was referred to him by a friend and former client of his. I was arrested for DUI and I blew the breathalyzer and thought I was going to be in a big trouble. I met with Jeff and he immediately spotted problems with the State’s case and he filed a challenge to get the case thrown out of court. At the hearing, I only had to sit there while Jeff aggressively cross examined the police officer. He even got the police officer to admit they were speeding and breaking other traffic laws. The judge sided with us and the prosecutors had to dismiss my case. I learned to not drink and drive. I also learned that a good attorney is so very important! Jeff Hall is one of those attorneys!
Fadi Is An Exceptional Lawyer!
My wife and I could not have been more pleased with Fadi in helping us with a deceptive contract situation. We signed a contract with a company for siding and a roof with a contingency that was acknowleged verbally yet not documented with enough detail on the contract. This contingency was that if our in-progress loan did not go through for payment, the contract would be dropped. Due to the bank learning of who we were dealing with and our intent to upgrade our home they declined our loan. The business owner said he had since ordered custom parts and was going to sue us for their value if we did not go through with the job even though we had no funds to oay for it. There were also many previous conversations where I reminded the business owner directly to not order any parts until the loan went through to make funds available. He did not respond to any request and proceeded to take legal action against us.
Fadi let us know what concerns and questions we should be asking as he worked behind the scenes on our behalf automatically, and in a timely mannor. His level of professionalism is as good as it gets. His confidence was comforting providing very concrete stability in our resolve to hold our ground against this unjustified legal threat. The case has now been dropped after years of action for which the only eventuality at this point would have been to go to court.
Thanks so much Fadi!
Mr. Ruston helped me with my slip and fall case against Hardees. He was great to work with and we settled the case at mediation last year. It was a wonderful outcome and I couldn’t give more of a glowing recommendation of his legal skill and work ethic.
Sincere Trustworthy Dedicated- that’s Fadi Rustom….
From the first consultation with Fadi Rustom, I felt that my case was important to him, and I felt that I was in good hands. He demonstrated trustworthiness, sincerity, and dedication – from start to finish.
His professionality was stellar. His knowledge base was thorough. And most of all… he cared.
He is very adept in his legal prowess. In layman’s terms… He knows his stuff!
What touched my heart the most was that – even though my case was small – he still cared enough to go into that courtroom, and represent me and my sister – to the very best of his ability.
Would I recommend Fadi Rustom to others? Absolutely.
Aggressive Advocate for the Injured
Mr. Rustom did a wonderful job for me on my injury case. His office took care of the entire process without much of my involvement and I had little worry about the case. Before long, he settled the case quickly and paid my medical bills. I didn’t have to worry about my medical bills going into collections. Great job. Use his office whenever you have an injury case.
Exceeded expectations. Car accident representation.
Mr. Rustom was wonderful in handling my car accident case. He was fast, aggressive and responsive to my needs. All of my medicals bills were paid and he obtained a great settlement for me and my family. His office always responded to my calls and I was very impressed with the case overall. I highly recommend Mr. Rustom for injury cases.
I would absolutely recommend Fadi Rustom for any legal advise and representation. He definitely has his focus on his clients first. Excellent attorney!
Fadi is the best of the best. He has the knowledge and experience you’d want from an attorney, but he also truly cares about his clients and is always honest. This is hard to come by.
Keep up the great work Fadi!
A man of integrity and his word
A man of integrity, professionalism, and genuine care for his clients needs. He is detail-oriented to ensure that there are no mis-steps or gaps in providing the best legal care and advice to advance the best interests of his client. You can take him at his word.
Robert Fuller, Territory Manager, Diversified Resources, Inc.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with Fadi. He is very professional, knowledgeable and kind which makes working with Fadi easy and comfortable. We will recommend him to everyone needing legal advice.
Great guy who will really work for you
I was really impressed in our first meeting and that never changed throughout the whole time he was representing me. He was very understanding of my issues and listened to what I was and wasn’t willing to do to get my case settled. He really got the job done without billing a bunch of hours like some lawyers will do.
Amazing performance, Outstanding results
Mr. Rustom has represented me in a number of cases, always with excellent results. He is a very “down to earth” attorney, and as I now consider him, a friend. He is very clear and pulls no punches when discussing your case with you. He clearly defines what results he expects your case to produce. I have witnessed him in court cross examining the states witnesses and it is a sight to behold! He does his homework and is always one step above the competition. He once won a case for me that even he himself said was a longshot, but by being 100 percent prepared not only won the case but had it dismissed. I highly recommend this attorney to all!
Huge help with forming a trust!
I had a tricky situation with forming a trust with some relatives that I didn’t get along with very well. Mr. Rustom was so helpful with working around our differences. He was able to keep us moving toward our goals without us arguing and stalling. He had ideas that we had not thought of and really made the whole process easy. I had been putting this off for a long time because I didn’t want to deal with my family members but once I started with Mr. Rustom, it all went very smoothly. He just charged us a flat fee even though we had to meet several times and we spoke on the phone a lot. I think he really knows everything there is to know about trusts, there wasn’t a question we asked that he couldn’t answer. I would call him again for any legal advice!
Hardworking, and dedicated
Mike Fritz is an amazing attorney. I hired him to help me with my divorce, as well as custody case. Mike did an excellent job keeping me informed as well as dealing with problems quickly and efficiently. He took time to get to know me as a person and review my case. He worked hard to get the best case possible for me and went the extra mile to represent me. He won my custody battle which seemed absolutely impossible to win at times, and was extremely helpful thru the whole process. I owe mike a lot more than a thank you, I owe him my utmost gratitude and respect for how well he handled not only my case but me as well.
- Hardworking, and dedicated
Child custody/child support
I hired Michael Fritz to represent me for my child custody/child support case. He met with me after office hours to hear the details of my case. He kept me informed about court date changes, case details, etc. He handled my case like a pro. I would highly recommend Michael Fritz to anyone who needs a lawyer for any family law matter.
Highly Recommended for your divorce
I would like to take a moment to high recommend Michael Steven Fritz of Hall, Rustom & Fritz LLC, located in East Peoria IL. From start to finish Mike and his team were very informative and keep me up to date on all the processes through my divorce journey. Mike came highly recommended to me as an attorney and I would like to pass that along to anyone who in need of his services. Mike took care of all the necessary paperwork including filing and mailing out all documents needed. Great customer service and results!
great lawyer. very understanding, honest, and prepared. Fast moving and gets results. with confidence, i highly recommend this lawyer and have…
- Oak Lemmerman
My wife and I would strongly suggest Mile as a lawyer for anyone who is need. Mike was very professional and knowledgable towards our case.
I was initially charged with a class B misdemeanor for speeding (85 in a 55). Mr. Leasor was able to knock down the charges to a petty offense and handled the case on my behalf as I had moved to Texas before its conclusion. I appreciated the thorough explanations of each step of the process which made me feel much more comfortable about the situation.
Attorney Leasor analyzed my Dui Case and broke it down piece by piece what was going to happen how it was going to happen and all the little steps in between. He wasvery easy to talk to and very understanding of a busy schedule. I am now back on my feet and ready to get on with my life without the Dui being on my record.
Happy Former Speeder
My experience with Chris was somewhat brief, but he was the attorney representing me in a court case for misdemeanor aggravated speeding (118 in 55). He was to the point and took time to explain every step of the process. His attitude took my anxiety from a 10 to a 2 in the courthouse and his professionalism and experience negotiated a court supervision deal and no conviction. Chris is the man.
- Adam Estes
Best money spent
Even though their office is extremely busy Christopher got my appeal settled in less than a week. I was almost facing jail time for faliure to appear, when I learnt of this i contacted him and the warrant was pulled as soon as he got all the info he needed. Will definately recommend him to anyone for anything. He’s like a magician when it comes to the courts.
Chris was great from first contact until final resolution of the ticket. He worked diligently to come to the best possible outcome in my case. I was referred to Chris and could not have asked for better representation. Thank you!!
Outstanding lawyer – saved me!
Chris was very professional, patiently heard what I had gone through, explained to me how things will pan out and clearly showed me the best and worst case scenarios. He was very knowledgable in his legal advice. He was also very prompt in responding to my calls and emails. For the kind of services he provides, his fee is very nominal.
Attorney Leasor really saved me!
I contacted Chris through his firm (Hall Rustom and Fritz) when I got into some trouble that was all a misunderstanding. I was arrested, had to bond out, and from there, I was in the dark. I had no clue the process or what I was facing. I met with Chris and he was knowledgable, friendly and easy to talk to. After a few court appearances I followed his instructions and eventually the prosecutor dismissed the case against me. Not only did I save money on fines, i did not have to be on any probation or anything. I then hired Chris to expunge my arrest and that was signed by the judge a couple weeks ago. all that I was scared about was for nothing because I hired Chris and his law firm.
Chris could not have been more thorough, or professional. He got the job done, kept me in the loop on every decision, and brought the problem to a satisfactory conclusion. Outstanding lawyer, I would recommend him highly.
Bogus Speeding Ticket Assistance
In February I got a bogus speeding ticket. There was another car the same color and make as mine and the trooper was rear facing so he confused the two when we switched lanes. It was a simple mistake. However, when the trooper pulled me over and told me he clocked me at 100 mph in a 70, my jaw hit the floor. In Illinois, it is a Class B Misdemeanor to drive 25 – 36 mph over the limit (even though I was going 70 in a 70). I thought about fighting it myself, but after doing some research and finding this site, I decided to hire an attorney. Chris and Jeff Hall were great to work with. They helped me weigh my options and left the decision to fight or plea to me. They were up front and forthcoming with information that might help me make a decision. In the end, I decided to plea. Chris was able to get me court supervision even though I live out of State. He was also able to arrange with the court that after 6 months of clean driving, the ticket would go away and my insurance company or State would never know about it. Chris’s firm has a flat rate for traffic court assistance and the fine from the state was $407. So in the end, the troopers mistake cost me over $1,000. But I didn’t get any jail time, I didn’t get a Class B Misdemeanor on my record, and after 6 months, this whole nightmare will go away thanks to Chris and his firm. It was a bitter pill to swallow, but Chris made it easier to deal with and I would recommend him any day. Also, I now drive with a dash cam equipped with GPS.
