Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney - Michael Chomiak Law Firm

Michael Chomiak grew up on the southwest side of Chicago. He later attended the University of Illinois on a Chick Evans Scholarship and graduated with a B.A. in Political Science in 1995. After college, Michael attended law school at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. During this time, he clerked at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, where he observed and learned from some of the most intelligent and experienced attorneys in the criminal justice system. Upon graduating from Loyola with a J.D. in 1998, Michael worked in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office from 1998-2003. As an Assistant State’s Attorney he handled felonies, misdemeanors (including all traffic matters, i.e. DUIs), and appeals. His hundreds of bench trials and numerous jury trials developed the knowledge and skill needed for criminal defense law.

In 2003, Michael left the State’s Attorney’s Office and started his own law practice. Over the last eleven years, he has represented clients in State and Federal Court.  By honing the traits he developed as an Assistant State’s Attorney, he has provided countless clients with the quality representation they require.  His honest and straight forward approach provides his clients with the information they need to know.  His knowledge, skill and diligence provide his clients the defense they want.  He is an aggressive advocate who does not fear trying a case.  Ultimately, his sole goal is too provide the best defense for his clients and leave them completely satisfied with his service.
