A criminal conviction can have devastating effects; your liberty, finances and reputation are all at stake. It is essential that you retain an attorney whom you can trust to ensure that your rights are protected.
My name is Mary Petruchius, and I have been practicing law since 1991. I work with a variety of individuals throughout DeKalb County and in the surrounding community. At my firm, The Law Office of Mary F. Petruchius, I am committed to providing clients with efficient, effective representation. Criminal law is complex, so I carefully explain the legal system to my clients in clear, easy to understand language. I firmly believe that a strong, trusting relationship is a precursor to the best outcome possible.
Efficient Sycamore Real Estate Closing Attorney
I zealously advocate for my clients in a variety of areas, including:
- Juvenile crimes
- Drug offenses
- Violent crimes
- Real estate closings
- Mental health law
I also work with other attorneys in handling bankruptcy, personal injury, workers' compensation, medical malpractice and wrongful death cases, as well as driver license suspension and revocation hearings with the Illinois Secretary of State Office.
Unlike many lawyers, I entered the legal profession later in life. My real world experiences, combined with my background in anthropology, mental health and education, give me a perspective that many attorneys lack. I have a deeper awareness regarding my clients and their needs. As a former teacher, I am committed to educating my clients about the legal process, thereby empowering them to make informed choices about their futures.
Illinois criminal law is a legal area often filled with a feeling of hopelessness and despair. I find great professional and personal rewards in giving my clients a sense of calm and confidence as we collaboratively pursue the best results possible.
