Chicago Trusted Attorneys™

Chicago criminal defense lawyer David M. Smith has loved Chicago since childhood, and now, he wants to make it a better place for its residents. After graduating from the Trial Practice Institute at Michigan State University College of Law, Mr. Smith learned plenty about Chicago’s legal landscape working on cases at other law firms. 

In 2007, he opened his own firm, and today, he and his fellow attorneys, Isioma Ebiringah and Paul Burnson, are defenders of people like you—Chicago residents accused of a crime and looking for a defense to save their future. 

Cases We Handle 

Our attorneys at Chicago Trusted Attorneys™ take on many different criminal defense cases, from misdemeanors to felonies. 


Accusations of drinking and driving are serious. If convicted, you could suffer not just criminal penalties, but also a license suspension. As Chicago DUI lawyers, David M. Smith and his team are ready to fight for your case, helping you protect your future as a driver in Chicago.


Opinions and laws on marijuana are changing worldwide, and Illinois has very recently made changes to its own laws regarding marijuana. Mr. Smith and his team stay up-to-date on these changes so you don’t have to worry about the nuances of the charges you’re facing. The lawyers at Chicago Trusted Attorneys™ can help you deal with charges up to and including trafficking charges. 

Criminal Defense

At Chicago Trusted Attorneys™, we cover a broad range of criminal offenses. If you don’t see the charges against you covered here, or if you have questions about your criminal record, we can help you there, too. When Chicago residents have a question about their charges, including felonies or misdemeanors, or have questions about expungement, our lawyers are here to help. 

What Makes Chicago Different 

As the country’s third most populous city, Chicago, Illinois, is a center for culture, infrastructure, and art. Incorporated in 1837, the city has a history of exciting historic events like the World’s Fair, famous sports teams like the Bears, and robust industries. 

The city offers a lot for both the tourist and the native resident. Many residents choose to travel using the Metra or the Chicago Transit Authority for traveling around the city. There are plenty of places to see, too. Chicago has many vibrant neighborhoods, including The Loop, or Chicago’s business district, and the city’s North, West, or South Sides. 

Chicago is also a center for diverse arts, too. The birthplace of poetry slams, Chicago is the home of literary magazines, the Chicago Theatre, and the Chicago Picasso. The city also offers live music venues and plenty of options for shopping, especially at Navy Pier.
