About The Firm

Our law firm handles the most important cases in the world for you. Criminal charges can put your very liberty at risk, while family court cases involve those you hold most dear. We understand how important these cases are for you and we can help. You can't afford to put your fate in the hands of an attorney who doesn't share that sense of importance. Instead, you will have an attorney who provides the passion you need to defend what matters most.

Experienced Chicagoland Attorneys

At McSweeney Moore Law Offices, criminal defense and family law are our areas of focus. This means that every single day, our attorneys represent individuals throughout Chicagoland charged in criminal matters or dealing with family law issues. As a result, our attorneys are exceptionally well-versed not only in the relevant statutory and case law, but also in the nuances and personalities of various courts in northern Illinois.

Our Firm's Attorneys:

We understand how specific judges and prosecutors approach different types of cases, because we have had cases with them. With this understanding, we tailor our defense strategies to not simply the criminal charges, but to the court where it will be tried and the prosecutors who will try the case.

Former Illinois Prosecutor And Judge

Colleen McSweeney Moore, our founding attorney, has handled criminal cases from every angle, first as a prosecutor in the Cook County State Attorney's Office, then for nearly 20 years as a Cook County Circuit Court judge, where she presided over thousands of criminal cases. Now as a private defense lawyer, she brings this depth of experience and insight to benefit our clients facing the serious consequences of a criminal conviction.

We Focus On Results

You might hear about lawyers who say they can deliver "fast results" or wrap up a case in a matter of days. When it comes to your freedom and your future, however, is it really worth it to emphasize speed over results?

Where our clients' cases are concerned, we believe it's essential to do it right. It's as simple as that. At the same time, we don't take shortcuts, and we'll develop every aspect of a case so that our clients are always in the best possible position, no matter how the evidence might look at first.

While a case is ongoing, moreover, we make it a point to be available to our clients — by telephone, in person, whatever meets their needs — so that they're never left wondering, "How's my case going?"
