About Jaleel Law P.C.

Why Hire Attorney Omar Jaleel ?

Foundation & Goals

 

Appeals & Criminal Defense Attorney Omar Jaleel founded Jaleel Law P.C. with one goal in mind – to provide the best legal representation possible for his clients. As a former Assistant State’s Attorney and appellate prosecutor, Mr. Jaleel has handled all types of criminal appeals and post-conviction petitions. During his time with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, Mr. Jaleel handled cases ranging from DUI to first-degree murder and was the lead appellate prosecutor on issues such as reasonable doubt, insanity, prosecutorial misconduct, ineffective assistance of counsel, evidentiary issues, retroactive application of new laws, and the constitutionality of statutes.

Experience & Expertise

This experience as a prosecutor allows Mr. Jaleel to look at client’s cases not only as a criminal defense attorney but also as a prosecutor. This unique insight has benefited his clients greatly allowing him to not only explain to them the strengths in the prosecution’s case but more importantly the holes that could be used to establish reasonable doubt in the prosecution’s case. With this foundation of success built as a prosecutor, Mr. Jaleel founded Jaleel Law to give his client exceptional legal representation that can only be provided by someone who has handled a diverse range of cases.While in private practice, Mr. Jaleel has only continued to build on the reputation of being a zealous advocate for his clients.

Appeals & Criminal Defense Attorney Omar Jaleel serving several areas in Illinois

“I love to be on the cutting edge of the law and be a driving force in where the law is headed unafraid to raise creative and novel arguments. I am a passionate advocate that thinks that my client and I are a team with one driving objective, winning my client’s case. I understand that hiring an attorney is a frightening experience especially for my appellate clients who have already paid a significant sum of money to some other attorney who more often than not over-promised but under-delivered. My promise is to make all my clients feel like they are my most important client regardless of their case or how much they paid me for my legal services.”

Awards and Accolades

 Mr. Jaleel’s commitment to his client and his craft has earned him numerous awards and accolades. Mr. Jaleel is pleased to have been named as:

  • Top One Percent Lawyer by The National Association of Distinguished Counsel
  • Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 by The American Society of Legal Advocates
  • Top 10 Under 40 by The National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys
  • Top Lawyer by The Global Directory of Who’s Who

Winning awards and accolades, however, is not what makes Mr. Jaleel tick. Rather, Mr. Jaleel loves to be on the cutting edge of the law and be a driving force in where the law is headed. In this regard, Mr. Jaleel has been successful. As an appeals lawyer, Mr. Jaleel has been a key player in several cases that have been published by the Illinois appeals courts. Under the legal doctrine of stare decisis published opinions carry precedential value and apply to all cases that are pending. The appeals rules state that published opinions should only be reserved for special cases that create a new rule of law or a case that changes the legal landscape. In effect, published opinions create new law.

Terry J.

I can’t say enough great things about Omar Jaleel. I hired Omar to help a family member, who suffers from addition, ordered to a rehab facility for 15 months instead of being sentenced to jail. It took some time but he was dedicated and made it happen. A very difficult task in an overcrowded judicial system. Thank you for everything Omar.

Mr Jaleel is upfront and will not lead you on to believe something that isn't factual. He's honest and will listen to your concerns and answer your questions truthfully...To some up Mr Jaleel "He is definitely not about getting your money and handing you over to the state" he'll fight for you in every stage of your case.

This lawyer has helped many of my neighbors and friends with their issues. He has done pro-bono work for a friend of mine due to their unfortunate family situations. Omar has a great legal mind and deeply cares about his clients and people in general. I wouldn't refer anyone else in the Chicago area for DUI or criminal defense help.
