A good lawyer makes all the difference. These are just some examples of recent cases that have been handled in Joliet.
An arrestee successfully sued three police officers, who arrested him for attempted larceny. The district court found that material questions of fact permeated the case. In particular, the officers did not have a warrant to enter the arrestee’s home. There were no exigent circumstances identified by the officers to justify their entrance.
There was the question of whether the arrestee’s father gave the officers consent to enter the house and that the officers used excessive force when arresting him.
A judge has granted the defendant’s motion to quash a search warrant, as the evidence for the warrant was insufficient to suggest that there was unlawful possession or delivery of a controlled substance at the defendant’s described location. The allegations in the complaint for the search warrant were too general to establish a connection between the residence and evidence of criminal activity.
The allegations in the complaint were too generic and lacking, to which the officers who executed the search warrant could not have reasonably believed that the warrant was valid.
In the wrongful death medical malpractice action, damages of $500,000 for loss of society were awarded due to a physician’s negligent conduct. However, it has been appealed that this amount is inadequate due to the fact that the decedent was a devoted husband and father to several children.
The jury allocated damages between the hospital and the physician, but the matter has been taken back to court to determine a new level of compensation.
Damages Awarded For Wrongful Death And Bodily Injuries Sustained IL (H3)
In a wrongful death and negligence action filed against a deputy and the sheriff’s department after a fatal high-speed pursuit, sufficient evidence supported the jury’s finding that the deputy was liable for his actions because his conduct was willful and wanton as he was traveling 100 to 110 miles per hour.
The plaintiff was awarded $3,660,968 in damages for a wrongful death claim, for the untimely death of the passenger in the vehicle, and awarded $468,065 for the bodily injury claim.

Check out what Trevor had to say about us on Google:
Michael J. Brennan took on my case for a traffic violation that I was cited for. To be honest it was not looking in my favor but thanks to Mr. Brennan’s representation he was able to get me out of that citation. To say I was shocked afterwards would be a understatement, Also my case wasn’t a big money maker but Mr. Brennan treated it like it was by aggressively fighting for my rights. Again with that aggressive and very knowledgeable understanding of the law (in my case traffic laws/violations) he was able to get me out what seem to be for sure a traffic fine. Thanks Mr. Brennan
