From the moment you step into our office, we will provide the personal touch you need, and you can rest assured that your case will be our top priority. This is what it means to experience the Fotopoulos difference.

John S. Fotopoulos established his law firm on two simple firm principles: to have competitive rates allowing everyone to afford the advice they need and to have legal counsel that is always available for clients.

John takes immense pride in his work, fulfilling a great deal of credits in continuing education seminars to ensure compliance and competency. In addition, his countless hours of legal research ensures that he stays ahead of the competition and is fully educated to take care of clients' legal needs. As a retired judge in the Circuit Court of Cook County, he understands what it takes to succeed in a court case. John's practice ensures that you are provided counsel that maintains a fresh perspective on all matters related to criminal defense and personal injury. Stagnancy creates an environment not conducive to growth.

John S. Fotopoulos strives to provide each and every client the most comprehensive legal protection and guidance when they are faced with a legal battle of any sort. Litigation defense can be a very stressful task to handle, but with John and the firm in your corner, you can get back to living a normal life while we successfully tackle the case at hand.
