Committed To Achieving Justice

Michael Oppenheimer launched The Oppenheimer Firm with his first partner in 2004. At the time, both had spent many years working as trial lawyers in Chicago’s criminal courtrooms. Too often, they had seen people charged with serious crimes or people whose civil rights were violated and not getting the legal representation they needed or deserved.

The founding partners envisioned a law firm that always fought to win their clients’ case – to be aggressive advocates and trial lawyers regardless of the seriousness of the case against the client.

Now with a record of hundreds of not guilty verdicts and tens of millions of dollars in settlements for civil rights cases, The Oppenheimer Firm has become the go-to firm for civil rights and criminal law in Chicago and beyond.

When the legal stakes could not be higher, you need attorneys who have been there before and won. Whether you need help managing the press or simply need someone on your side who will stand up to federal, state and local government officers and agencies, we will be on your side throughout your case, ready to defend your rights aggressively.
