Illinois State and Federal Crimes Attorney
At Steven A. Greenberg and Associates, Ltd., we focus exclusively on criminal defense, defending the rights and freedoms of people accused of serious crimes. We are known as aggressive, knowledgeable and determined criminal defense attorneys, dedicated to obtaining the most favorable outcome possible for every client.
Steve Greenberg has been repeatedly named to the Illinois Super Lawyers List (top 5% of Illinois lawyers) and the Illinois Leading Lawyers List (peer-rated, top 5% of Illinois lawyers).
Your defense will always be led by Steve Greenberg, a criminal defense attorney with more than 25 years of experience in state and federal courts. His record of success in difficult, challenging, and high-profile felony cases is unmatched. Recognizing this, local, national, and international media often reach out to Steve for commentary on the most important cases and legal issues. He regularly appears on local and national television and radio, speaking about specific cases and providing insight into the criminal justice system for viewers and listeners.
Our legal practice focuses on defending individuals charged with federal crimes, including drug crimes, financial crimes, fraud, white collar crimes, and racketeering. In state court, we defend people accused of felonies, such as murder, weapons charges, and drug crimes. We also counsel clients who have received grand jury subpoenas or are being investigated. An extensive record of accomplishment on appeal helps us to recognize and capitalize upon legal issues.
Whatever the nature of the case, clients rely upon Steve to provide:
Aggressive, results-oriented representation: Our approach means striving for success at trial. Importantly, being prepared for trial, and not being afraid to put a jury in the box, often times strengthens our negotiating position with the prosecution's lawyers, resulting in favorable plea negotiations when appropriate.
A fresh, creative approach: Our strategies for criminal cases differ from those of most other attorneys; we never say any two cases are alike, because each involves a different defendant, and each has its own set of unique facts and legal issues that can lead to positive results. Although we draw heavily on our experience, we know that every case is the most important event in our client's life. We treat it as if it is the most important in ours.
Thorough case preparation: Working with expert investigators and consultants, we will analyze and evaluate all facets of a case to identify the best possible defense strategy.
Strong advocacy at all stages of the legal process: As each case progresses, we take every opportunity to challenge the prosecution to prove its case. This can involve moving to suppress evidence, arguing alternative theories and conducting thorough discovery and investigation.
