From the moment I met David Smith, I knew that I made the right decision by hiring him. I highly Chicago Trusted Attorneys. He resolved my issue as he said that he would.

I went to Court this Monday for driving over 100mph in a 55. To top it off I own a Class A CDL, thought that my driving career was over and that i would probably lose my license. When i got referred to Chicago Trusted Attorneys, had my first phone call with Paul Burnson which was my attorney. He right away made me feel like he was taking caring of things immediately. Only to show up to court expecting fines or a safety class or more, i was actually removed from all charges which I most definitely didn’t think would happen. There’s no doubt that i would call Chicago Trusted Attorneys if I ever needed any legal advice again.

Last year I found myself in a dire and complicated legal situation. During my first consultation with David he immediately put me at ease with his profound knowledge and calm and friendly demeanor. He was reassuring and was very upfront with me as to what I could expect to happen in the coming months. Through his dedication and hard work he and his team obtained a very favorable outcome for me. So if you’re looking for a professional attorney that is not only knowledgeable but friendly and personable than David and his team is the one for you!

Your responsiveness is unmatched when ever I called or text you always got back to me in a timely manner. Thank you again for helping me be able to move beyond this situation!

I highly recommend David smith as an attorney! He is always punctual, prepared, and I must say very dependable. I was charged with a serious offense and David Smith beat the case for me. I am very grateful to have had him over any attorney.

Brianna C.

I received an ordinance violation that could have derailed my entire career that I’ve worked my entire life for. Within the first phone call I felt listened to and my concerns seemed to be understood. Izzie (my attorney) was initially able to get the charge removed from my name if I completed a class for a small fee, but instead he went above and beyond and was able to completely remove the charge as if nothing happened. Throughout the entire process I was kept informed with updates and check ins. On top of everything, they’re affordable and allowed me to make payments so that I was not placed in a financial strain.

C. B.

Chicago Trusted Attorneys were professional. I was looking at prison time on my first offense and my life was going to take a south turn. Paul managed to communicate and work in such a manner that community service was my redemption. My …

Chicago trusted attorneys did an exceptional service aiding me in my traffic court violation of driving with an expired license. Attorney Paul Burnson was the perfect selection to represent me for my case. His team gave me minimal repercussions with plenty of time and ease. With their help I was successfully able to dismiss the case. I would definitely recommend them in the future for all.

Einar T.

I’m so glad I found this firm. They helped me with a traffic ticket. It was the easiest, most stress free court experience ever. From beginning to end, David and his team dealt with everything. All of my phone calls and emails were answered promptly. Everyone I had the pleasure of speaking with was experienced, responsive, knowledgeable. The outcome was great. The ticket will not even stay on my record. I could not have asked for a better lawyer to represent me. This firm is well worth the cost. Hopefully, I will not need them again, but I’ll definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a lawyer. Thanks so much!!

My experience with this law firm was Excellent! Having to go through the court system is stressful enough, but at every turn my nerves were calmed and I most definitely was their top priority. I was fortunate enough to work with all three of these intelligent lawyers. My main lawyer was Paul Burnson and he was absolutely fantastic; his demeanor and due diligence was key and made all the difference. If I am in need of a lawyer in the future Chicago Trusted Attorneys is and will be my go to.
