I highly recommend these guys. I got a few tickets, my friend told me to call them. I called the Joliet office right away the secretary was very friendly and helpful. They took care of everything for me and I still have my license. If you find your self in a situation I would definitely call these guys.

Never being involved in anything like this before, the Hirsch Law Group has been a true blessing. Speaking first with Torrance; he took all of my information and was a great comfort. Christina listened to all of my concerns and I know I was heard. Brian was with me at my first appearance. I was nervous and a little confused. He calmed my fears and explained everything to me. Bottom line is, I feel taken care of and have confidence in everyone there. And isn’t that what we all are looking for when we need representation?

Hired Gordon and his team and Mr. Anthony Lombardo came to court and had my case dismissed on the 1st court date. I had hired them only a few weeks prior to my case, and they were able to get the discovery and talk to the District Attorney with only a few weeks before my court case and they blew me away with how professional they were. I would recommend them highly to everyone I know, and to anyone who is looking for a good attorney who will not only work for you, but also call and keep in touch with you and answer every time you call I would seriously look into hiring them! Thank you Mr. Hirsch, Mr. lombardo, and Mr. Brzezinski for all of your hard work. My family also wants to tell you thank you as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is the Difference Between a Misdemeanour And a Felony?

In most cases, misdemeanors result in a prison sentence of no more than one year and other penalties, including fines, probation, or community service. In contrast, felonies can result in prison sentences ranging from one year to life.

Therefore, felonies are more serious crimes, such as murder, multiple DUI offenses, robbery, possession of controlled substances, and theft of high-value items.

What Is the Difference Between a State and a Federal Criminal Charge?

When you violate state laws, you will be prosecuted in state courts. State courts apply criminal statutes and hand out penalties in line with state legislation.

Federal criminal charges are more serious. They cover criminal activity which takes place across state lines. Examples are drug trafficking, fraud, and distribution of child pornography. Federal agencies such as the FBI or DEA are often involved in these cases. Severe penalties and mandatory minimum sentences are often handed down.

The Police Have Ordered Me to Go to the Station for an Interview. Should I Make a Statement?

Making a statement at the police station without your lawyer present is often detrimental and works to disadvantage you. Only give the police a statement with your lawyer present. Often the police give suspects the impression that they are obliged to make a statement. Only make a statement to the police with your lawyer present. Sometimes the police give suspects the impression that they are obligated to provide a statement. However, your constitutional rights grant you the right to remain silent and to have your attorney present. If you are in this situation, politely advise the police you need your attorney present. You may incriminate yourself if you make a statement without your attorney present. Your words may be taken out of context, and the police officer may record incorrect information.
