Lake County in Illinois is one of the most economically and socially diverse regions of Illinois. It is also one of the tightest knit legal communities in all of Illinois. By that we mean that attorneys who are based out of Lake County and do most of their work in Lake County often get a better result than someone who is not from that area. Most of these lawyers are based out of Waukegan, but you will also find a lot of good attorneys in the surrounding communities. That is not to say that a lawyer from Chicago, McHenry County or elsewhere couldn’t get a good result in Lake County. However, all things being equal, we think that the local attorneys in Lake County do better with the judges because they see them on a regular basis and are often in the same social circles.
In our opinion it is especially important to find a Waukegan attorney (or a lawyer from a surrounding part of Lake County) for criminal law, traffic and family law cases. Unlike a medical malpractice case where it might make sense to get a law firm from Chicago or a comparable firm in the area, in criminal, traffic and family law matters, your lawyer’s relationship with the judge, prosecutor and/or other attorneys can make a huge difference in the final outcome. This isn’t true in every matter, but certainly is true in many of the cases that we see.
