I was looking for Ch7 lawyers and Dean's name popped up. I spoke with him several times on the phone and he was alway clear and concise explaining the law in laymen's terms. I would definitely recommend Dean any legal interactions. Top-notch all of the way.

Richard was extremely knowledgeable. He immediately took the time to talk over the phone and meet with me in person to better understand my case and situation. I was extremely stressed out and he calmed me down by explaining his process step-by-step. I would recommend Attorney Fenbert to anyone and will hire him again without any hesitation.

Kyle was very patient in understanding my concerns and guided me towards possible options to take even though those were not in his economic interest. I am very thankful to Kyle for sharing his experience on resolving similar issues. He understood hiring an attorney at this time was not in my best interest, he still spent time talking with me and ensuring my satisfaction. I look forward to working with Kyle in the future.

This man is by far the best attorney Ive ever worked with; And that's really saying something lol. I have over a dozen arrests, three felony convictions for possession and disorderly conduct, plus a prior dui and domestic conviction. The dui of which I was shamefully still on supervision for when I was arrested by the Streamwood police dept for dui and possession of paraphenilia and a controlled substance. The overly-high priced hoity-toity attorneys didnt even want to take my dui and possession case as they viewed it as unwinnable. Not only did Ron charge me thousands less than those guys wanted, but he won this supposedly "unwinnable" case. He treated me with respect, he was polite to my family members, and he leveled with me as opposed to trying to sell me dreams. He worked his tail off for me, took the case to trial for no additional fee, and won the case with flying colors. Because of my backgroud, I was facing a maximum of 8 years in prison and my drivers license was to be revoked for 3 years. Not only am I a free man today with zero new convictions, but I also got my license back. Very few atttorneys could have pulled off what he did, let alone for the bargain price he gave me. I highly recommend this man to anyone that finds themselves in trouble and needing legal representation. Out of all the attorneys Ive worked with over the years, it would be foolish to ever hire anybody but him.

Attorney Odeh was terrific. He was always in touch with me on my case and even refunded part of my payment after the case was completed. He showed the evidence to get my charges dismissed. I recommend him.

Mr. Nelson resolved my divorce in for 4 months after replacing my prior attorney. He and his associates are very knowledgeable understanding and aggressive at taking care of their client. I only wish that I had been referred to him 14 months sooner! Divorce is never easy but I would highly recommend this firm to assist with the process.

Attorney Omar Khan negotiates for the best outcome on his client’s behalf. He is very knowledgeable regarding your contractural rights. He helped me remove a negative credit report by re-negotiating my auto contract terms when I fell behind in payments.

I have had the honor of working with David Ashamalla and Patrick Sommers on numerous occasions through the company I was working for. I believe them to be very dedicated to the client that they represent. They leave no stone unturned looking for whatever will be in the best interest of their client. They explain what is going on and keep you updated as to any changes in the matter they are handling for you. If you are looking for lawyers that go the extra mile, that you will feel comfortable with and know that you can depend on, you have the right attorney's.

Mr. Kessler provided numerous legal services to me, from drafting contracts to negotiating settlements. He was professional, gave detailed explanations and time tables, and was able to swiftly achieve the results I was looking for. It was great working with an attorney more interested in results than padding his billable hours.

Carter & Opdycke Attorneys at Law are members of the Chicago Bar Association, the Cook County Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association, and the Illinois Federal Trial Bar. We have served as prosecutors with the Cook County States Attorney's Office. We are not simply criminal attorneys; we are former prosecutors that trained and supervised the current prosecutors!


I specialize on criminal defense and child a protection law. My business is great because we defend the wrongfully accused and protect and preserve the family institution.

I am an attorney in private practice for over 15 years handling civil, criminal, DUI, divorce and personal injury/workers compensation/medical malpractice matters. I am also a nationally published author and noted speaker in the area of DUI defense. I have extensive bench and jury-trial experience throughout northern Illinois.
