Practice Description:  
Steven Greenberg has defended those charged with serious crimes since 1986. Each case is individually analyzed, researched, and investigated. Steve is often called upon to rescue clients after other attorneys have hopelessly thrown up their hands. He is renowned and respected for an aggressive, skillful, quality defense.

His keen skills allow him to find issues and defenses that have escaped other attorneys, saving the client. Knowing that every criminal defendant faces life changing circumstances, and that the outcome of their case will, one way or another, affect the rest of their and their family's lives, he brings unique fervor to their defense. Known for his creative and tenacious approach, he fights for the accused to win.

A nationally recognized expert, Steve is constantly called upon by the national media to offer his legal insight. He appears as a guest on Headline News, Fox News, CNN, CBS and locally. Known for his knowledge of the law, he is the longtime chairman of the Brief Writing Committee of the Illinois Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
