The Law Offices Of Kevin E. O’Reilly was able to achieve the following results on behalf of our clients:

NOT GUILTY

Class X Felony-Manufacture and Delivery of Cannabis

A 35-year-old Chicago man was charged with possession of over 8,000 grams of cannabis and more than 195 cannabis plants in a near west side warehouse used for growing the plants. After the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) chose not to prosecute the case proceeded to trial in Cook County, Illinois wherein the judge found the lab reports had technical inaccuracies resulting in a favorable dismissal of all counts of the indictment.


DISMISSED

Class X Felony-Manufacture and Delivery of Cannabis

A 19-year-old man was charged with possession of 20 pounds of cannabis after Chicago police searched his trunk. At a motion hearing to quash the arrest, a Cook County judge found the officers did not have probable cause to search the defendant’s trunk resulting in a favorable dismissal of all counts of the indictment.


NOT GUILTY

Felony Battery to a Police Officer-Defendant Sues and Wins a Six Figure Settlement

A 21-year-old man was charged in Kankakee with battery to a police officer following a public fight that broke out in the audience of Kaos, a popular mixed martial arts venue. The Defense claimed the Kankakee police falsely charged defendant knowing he did not strike any officers and it was learned the officers were covering up their brutal beating of the defendant. A jury returned a verdict for the defendant in 17 minutes. The defendant later sued Kankakee and Kaos resulting in a favorable six figure settlement for the defendant.


NOT GUILTY

Felony DUI Number Five

A 40-year-old man was charged with felony driving under the influence of alcohol for a fifth time in 11 years and was found not guilty. The judge’s favorable ruling was based upon lack of evidence at trial and a video of the traffic stop revealing defendant was not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.


NOT GUILTY

Person Receives 60 Day Sentence from Judge Departing from Mandatory Minimum of 2 Years

A 65-year-old business owner was charged in the Northern District of Illinois with filing false tax returns for allegedly failing to report over $2 million in cash payments. After a hearing on a variance from the Federal Sentencing Guidelines calling for a sentence between two to three years the judge reduced the sentence to 60 days with no follow-up probation of mandatory supervised release requirements.

“I made the biggest mistake of my life.  I killed my client in an auto accident after a night out celebrating a new business deal.  I had to go to jail and pay several million to his family so they could survive.  My business companies insurance refused to pay and lied about the amount of insurance.  I hired several attorneys who said I could not win a lawsuit against them.  I hired Kevin and he took a chance and fought them in court.  He won and I recouped my losses. Don’t give up. Always call Kevin.”
