We want to help protect your freedom and future.
The Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus are an established Illinois criminal defense law firm dedicated to providing defendants the experience you expect from a legal authority with three decades of criminal defense strategy, trial and appeals experience. Unlike large Chicago criminal defense firms or cookie-cutter national firms, Mr. Minkus himself handles all legal matters, from start to finish, and gives each case the attention needed to obtain the best possible result. Your defense will never be placed in the hands of a paralegal, clerk or inexperienced junior attorney. Mr. Minkus has spent his entire career handling often intense and complex defense and trial strategies.
Mr. Minkus takes great pride in his aggressive criminal defense record. Many of his cases never even reach trial. Instead, through skilled negotiation, the charges often are dismissed or reduced so that there is no jail time and, often, no criminal record. As countless numbers of clients from Cook, Lake, DuPage, Will, McHenry and Kane counties can attest, we offer aggressive, proactive and highly creative criminal defense strategies, along with an tireless work ethic, that lead to successful results.
