      Martin began his career as an Assistant State's Attorney and prosecuted a tremendous number of cases in just shy of 5 years spent in the Cook County State's Attorney's Office. In 2004, Martin entered private practice and now has spent over 16 years defending cases in Cook, Lake, DuPage, Kane and McHenry counties. Armed with trial experience and aggressive negotiating skills, Martin will accomplish the legal goals you seek. Call today 773-655-5544 and you will speak to me directly - no secretary, no answering service - you get to the Attorney directly!!

        I have referred dozens of my own clients to Mr. LaScola over the years, and will continue to do so for as long as he is practicing. He has invariably provided them with the highest quality legal representation.
