THE RICHARD ALBANESE LAW OFFICE
SERVING ILLINOIS AND WISCONSIN
DEDICATED TO CLIENTS AND JUSTICE
My name is Richard Albanese and I look forward to defending you in your criminal or traffic related case. I served as a Cook County Prosecutor for over a decade and have handled thousands of DUI, Traffic, Misdemeanor and Felony cases in all areas of the law. I use my knowledge of the Criminal Justice system to level the playing field for all my clients in dealing with Prosecutors and Judges in Court.
I am well versed in negotiating, arguing motions and defending clients at trials before judges and juries across Illinois and Wisconsin. I have handled cases in many cities and jurisdictions including but not limited to, all Chicago Courts, Lake County, McHenry County, Dupage, Kane, Skokie, Rolling Meadows, Maywood, Markham, Bridgeview, Park City, Mundelein, Round Lake Beach, Rockford, McLean, Racine, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin Dells, Lake Delton and countless smaller cities in both Illinois and Wisconsin.
As a Veteran of the United States Army I understand the importance of protecting liberty and freedom and will vigorously fight for your Constitutional rights in court. When I speak to you the first time concerning your case you will know you have my full respect and attention and I am not looking at my watch. I listen closely and ask important questions of my clients to determine our best defense strategy.
I have always been and remain today as an attorney for the people. I understand the trying financial times we are facing as a nation and charge clients fees based only on the work I perform to prepare their cases. I pride myself on keeping clients in the loop concerning their cases and provide updates as a case progresses both in and out of court. With every client and case I outline and explain possible sentences, financial and personal costs, and consequences they may be facing and my professional evaluation of what their best course of action will be, but ultimately respect my clients wishes as to whether to accept an offer or contest a case in court.
Whether you are facing a DUI/OWI, speeding or traffic tickets or more serious criminal charges such as misdemeanors or felonies you need an attorney who knows the law and the criminal justice system and is not afraid to fight for your rights in court.

FOR CLIENT CONVENIENCE WE ACCEPT:
"It is my pleasure to write this review. There are not enough truly decent, helpful, knowledgable and upstanding attorneys like Richard Albanese. Richard always took my calls, never rushed me off the phone, and really cared how the case affected me. This attorney is truly one in million. His former experience as a prosecutor gave me an edge because he knew exactly what to say and when with a commanding presence. As important, he knew what not to say. The Judge agreed with him and my case was dismissed."

"I found Richard Albanese via Google Search. I sent him a detailed email of what happened during my traffic stop. The next day he responded with some feedback. I called and he consulted me regarding how the matter should be handled. The following week he appeared on my behalf and negotiated exactly the outcome we were hoping for. Richard was extremely easy to work with and I recommend him if you are in need of an attorney for a driving offense."
"Richard was the best lawyer we could have asked for. He was professional and pro active. He investigated the details of the situation, was proactive in taking action to resolve the situation. In addition he kept us in the know by communicating what was happening, what to expect next and what needed to be done"
