If you are accused of committing a crime, you will fare better with an experienced attorney who will give you the individualized attention you deserve. At the Law Office of Matthew Prengaman, that is exactly what you will get.

I am Matthew Prengaman, a Cook County criminal defense lawyer who is licensed to practice in both federal and state courts. I am dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for you in a cost-effective manner. I’ve helped hundreds of clients avoid jail time and get charges dismissed or reduced in Cook County for over 10 years.

How I Can Help

The Law Office of Matthew Prengaman defends clients accused of committing many different types of crimes, including the following:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Gun crimes including felony possession and UUW
  • DUI
  • Traffic offenses
  • Property damage
  • Theft
  • Drug crimes: possession, cultivation, possession with intent to distribute, distribution

No matter what crime you have allegedly committed, you are still entitled to a fair trial. In my decade of experience, I have found that many times the best result is reached by carefully considered negotiation. In rare cases, when negotiation is not in your best interest, then I will take your case to trial.

The Best Outcome In Traffic Violations

Traffic offenses often seem simple enough for you to handle yourself, but it is very difficult to achieve the best outcome without the help of a qualified attorney. I have assisted clients facing speeding tickets, DUI, charges of driving on a suspended license and more. I can work to dismiss or lessen your charges, reduce fines and help you avoid a suspended or revoked license or jail time.
