About The Firm

Damon CheronisThe Law Offices of Damon M. Cheronis was formed in 2008 by Damon M. Cheronis, its principal and founder. Regarded as one of the preeminent criminal defense firms in Chicago, our firm is dedicated to providing the highest quality representation to individuals charged with serious federal and state offenses. To that end, we pride ourselves first and foremost on being trial lawyers, always willing to innovatively and fearlessly present even the most complex and challenging cases to a jury for the betterment of our client. We also employ an aggressive and creative motion practice to give our client every advantage when it comes time for trial. And for those who wish to negotiate the best possible resolution short of trial, we know all too well that favorable dispositions are not something freely offered by federal or state prosecutors; rather, they are born from our reputation for trying cases and challenging the government, aggressively litigating discovery and pretrial motions, and otherwise relentlessly preparing the defense.

Our firm is small by design. We are selective in the cases we take and ensure that all our attorneys have their finger on the pulse of each and every one of our matters. Our clients have included lawyers, doctors, politicians, CEOs, public officials, etc.— the majority of whom became our clients through the recommendation and referral of previous clients. Our firm has a wealth of experience handling a wide variety of legal matters, focusing on trial work in federal white collar, corruption and violent drug crimes, their state corollaries, as well as appeals before the 7th Circuit and other circuit courts, Illinois Appellate Courts, and the Illinois Supreme Court, and in grand jury and other criminal investigations. Mr. Cheronis has also practiced nationally.

Unwavering Commitment To Clients

Our attorneys come to the office every day not only with the knowledge that our clients have entrusted us with their life, liberty and property, but also knowing well that we are all that stands between them and what often proves to be the most difficult and trying experience of their life. That, in turn, gives us an acute awareness for the respect and trust our clients have placed in us. It motivates us to work tirelessly, to fight without reserve, and ultimately, to pursue every case as if our own livelihood is hung in the balance.
