    Attorney Nenye E. Uche... Wow!!! He is truly the best above the rest. A relative was facing 40 years for an alleged aggravated sexual assault charge. He had first hired another attorney who told him the case seems a difficult one to win, because he saw the victim crying on her video recorded testimony. Out of fear that this attorney didn't have what it takes, we were referred to Attorney Uche. I tell you, he is never afraid of a challenge. He doesn't seek to settle - only to win. He accepted our case and 8 months later today, at precisely 6:22pm, our relative left the court room acquitted of all charges. Thanks you Attorney Uche!!! I can truly say without you my relative would have been locked up today for 40 years. Thank you, thank you, thank you... If you're looking for a veeryyy good criminal defense attorney Attorney Uche is your guy!

    NOT GUILITY-My husband was facing 30 to 50 years in prison for unlawful use and possession of a weapon, combined with being charged as an armed habitual criminal. Through our painful, excruciating, and stressful journey, which lasted more than three (3) years we researched, hired and sought the assistance of five (5) prominent attorneys in Chicago and they all said it was not a winnable case, after taking our money, or they were not sure what the outcome would be based on the evidence. Their services for what they charged was subpar and after asking for astronomical amounts of money their customary practice, and the make-up of their DNA, is to be disrespectful to the families and individuals who in many cases put up their life savings, so their loved one could have stellar representation.  However, the representation is not stellar, it is substandard, shoddy, and poor, they don’t visit your loved one, they leave your loved one sitting in jail, and in the end, they just want to plead out the case. However, the sixth attorney was a Blessing and a Charm, and I am pleased, gratified and happy to write this recommendation about Attorney NENYE UCHE. He is smart, he works hard for his clients, he is competent and a master of his craft, skill, and trade. As a result, I would not hesitate to suggest, advise, and urge anyone to ascertain the legal services of Attorney NENYE UCHE. During my husband’s trial, Attorney NENYE UCHE from his opening to his closing, came prepared to slay, exterminate, and create beyond a reasonable doubt my husband’s innocence. The police found my husband and his friend asleep in his friend’s car. They had been out drinking and fell asleep outside our home. After approaching the car and banging on the window, the Police Officer asked my husband to exit the car, which he did with his hands up, and a cup in his hand. At some point words were exchanged, and the Officer pulled his gun, and my husband turned his back and ran out of fear, with his hands up the entire time, hollering, “please don’t shoot.” When my husband was arrested he was held for approximately 48 hours and charged with possession of a gun.  The Officer wrote in his report, that my husband exited the car with a cup in one hand and a gun in his other hand. During trial, Attorney NENYE UCHE, reminded me of O.J. Simpson’s lawyer, Attorney Johnny Cochran. He explained to the jury, that the only finger prints on the gun, were those of the arresting Officers. He researched and understood the protocol of what was supposed to take place when a weapon is discovered at the scene of a crime. The Officers did not follow the protocol. He captivated the jurors with his knowledge of the law and forensic examination. Because the gun had not been tested properly, Attorney NENYE UCHE put a sign on the gun that read, “TEST ME PLEASE”. He ingeniously articulated that the gun in question was not near my husband. Moreover, the Judge Sustained Attorney NENYE UCHE twenty (20) times more than he did the Prosecutors.  However, Attorney NENYE UCHE expertly, shrewdly, and skillfully explained to the Jury that they should stand their ground, and not be bullied and have the courage to do what was right because the State had not proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt. My husband is back with his family, we never gave up on him, and neither did Attorney NENYE UCHE. It was not all strawberries and cream with Attorney NENYE UCHE put when he showed up, he showed out and his only objective was to help us bring my husband home.   Attorney NENYE UCHE is an outstanding Criminal Defense Attorney-intelligent, personable, hard-working, respectful, and persuasive. We found his services more than satisfactory, so if you are in need of an exceptional lawyer, please call Attorney NENYE UCHE. T. Hayes

    Nenye is a very professional and amicable attorney. He got my DUI case tossed out by prosecutors and assured me that the case will go smoothly. I'm proud to call him my lawyer!

    First, Nenye Uche is a courtroom specialist. Almost 1 year ago Uche's expertise lead to my acquittal of rape charges. My innocence was not of value to the prosecutor nor the prior private attorney. The importance of knowing what tool to use for a particular job will save you time and money. Mr.Uche stepped in professionally with enthusiasm to seek justice.I sincerely hope and recommend anyone, before becoming a victim of the judicial system, seek Nenye. At trial,Mr.Uche opening statement 'buyer's remorse set tone, better yet pace throughout the 5 day trial. My life was on the line, so priceless is the fine "NOT GUILTY " after 1 hour of deliberation, not to mention days earlier being offered a 8yr plea bargain. Mr.Uche master courtroom experience superseded my 'bogus charges.

    Nenye Uche is a genius in court, he helped me win not only one, but two DUIs. I live nearby affluent neighborhood where cops are patrolling all the time, which have resulted me getting two DUI. It was attorney Nenye, who helped me beat both of those cases. He is smart, articulate, eloquent, aggressive, tricky and highly intelligent lawyer. I was scared to death after both of those incidents but he assured me of acquittal after our initial consultation. I am very thankful for his help and expertise.

    Simply the best!!!
    8 days before relocating out of state, I was pulled over for an expired plate and subsequently arrested for dui, although I was not intoxicated. I immediately called Attorney Uche after seeing his stellar online reviews. He answered his cell phone at 7am. I told him my situation and he immediately put my mind at ease and said "I will get you out of this mess, I promise." Did he ever!!! He had all the groundwork laid out and knew who to talk to about my very complicated situation. One court date. Done! He got my charge reduced to a reckless driving, zero fines, zero classes. All I had to pay was court costs, which was a pittance in the grand scheme of things. His fee was also VERY reasonable. Uche is amazing to watch in the courtroom. He really needs his own TV drama show. He's that good. Look no further, Attorney Uche has you covered!!!

    Great Attorney in the Courtroom!
    I ended up getting a DUI charge in December of 2015. (Christmas Eve as a matter of fact). And I was so nervous about getting a DUI for the first time ever in my life so i googled dui attorneys and out of the 3 attorneys i have talked to about my charge I've decided to hire him because he kept it real about how the process would go and his fees were reasonable. After he viewed the dash-cam video he set my case for trial and pretty much ripped the officer to shreds when he cross-examined him with details of my arrest that neither me or the officer could remember. He beat the case for me and saved me a lot of hardship of having a dui.

    One great attorney!!!!!!!
    Nenye is a great attorney.I attained him on two different occasions one was a DUI and the other was a UUW meaning a gun case!Both cases went to trial and we won both!!Nenye destroyed the lying police officer on the stand and proved that they were not doing their job correctly.Even though The vehicle that the guns were located in was mine Nenye was able to prove the the officers had no clue as to whom out of the seven occupants the two guns belonged to.He also took the extra step finding case law in my favor from a case like mine and was successful at getting my case dismissed!!

    Not Guilty for a DUI Charge
    Attorney Nenye Uche represented me on a DUI charge and a Driving on a Suspended License charge that I received due to the DUI. I was completely overwhelmed during this process because this is the first time and the most serious thing I've ever had to deal with. Mr Uche assured me the entire time of how confident he was in beating this case. He was constantly in contact with me on any changes or updates in our case. He has ALOT of good relationships inside and outside the courtroom which puts him above every other lawyer. He ended up getting me a Not Guilty on my DUI charge and I received only supervision on my suspension case, which I was told by other lawyers "that he performed a miracle because that never happens". I fully recommend Attorney Uche for any legal needs you might have.

    highly recommend
    My first DUI was just prior to joining the military I was charged with my Second DUI in Sept, and due to the strict nature of second DUI charges I decided to hire Mr Uche. He somehow managed to have the charges reduced to Reckless Driving. Saved my license from being revoked for 5 years. Considering Second DUI charges are Not plea bargain eligible , I was completely shocked to have it work out in the manner it did. I cannot thank him enough for the job he did! I highly recommend Mr Uche due to his detailed approach and his presence in the courtroom.
