  • Criminal Law

    Mr. Cronson has extensive experience in the area of criminal law. While Illinois does not recognize specialty areas of law, he has concentrated in this area in addition to personal injury, workers compensation, and appellate advocacy. Mr. Cronson has tried over 30 murder trials to jury verdict in Cook, DuPage, Lake, and McHenry counties during the past 30 years. These cases invariably involve difficult and contentious legal concepts requiring a high degree of experience and proficiency in cross-examination, expert witness issues, trial tactics, and effective advocacy.

  • DUI Defense

    As a reflection of the increased enforcement of the DUI laws on the state and local level in the past 25 years, Mr. Cronson has defended hundreds of driving under the influence cases during that span. These cases have been in Cook, Lake, Kane, DuPage, McHenry, and Kankakee Counties. Mr. Cronson has been quoted in the Daily Herald as an experienced attorney with a wide range of experience in this area.

  • Drivers License Reinstatement/ Restricted Driving Permits

    With the advent of stepped up prosecution of DUI laws, and many alcohol and traffic related suspensions and revocations now authorized by the Secretary of State, more and more drivers are finding themselves in need of legal counsel to guide them through the process of regaining legal driving privileges. Those that try to obtain driving privileges without legal representation often dig themselves into a deep hole when attempting to navigate the rules of the Secretary of State that govern their procedures. A hearing to regain privileges that must be conducted before either a formal or informal hearing officer is a daunting, and more often than not, unsuccessful endeavor for most lay persons. Mr. Cronson has been representing individuals before the Secretary of State for almost 30 years, with an extremely high rate of success. If you are eligible for driving relief and Mr. Cronson accepts your case, you can feel confident that you will be on the road in the very near future-with valid driving privileges.
