About this office:
Illinois criminal defense attorney Richard Blass provides quality legal representation in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
An arrest can be one of the most traumatic experiences you will ever face. Let me walk you through the process step by step, in language you can understand. Let me go to work for you and aggressively defend your case. I am an experienced attorney handling felony, misdemeanor, traffic and DUI cases in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake and Will counties.
The laws can be complex and confusing; don't hire an attorney that just knows the law, hire an attorney who also wants to get to know you. Feel free to call me for a consultation. Let me put my experience, in law enforcement and as a former special prosecutor for the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, to work for you.
