We Are Here To Serve You

A habeas corpus petition is the federal equivalent of Illinois’s post-conviction petition. Habeas corpus is available to overturn an unlawful conviction after a federal trial, and in some cases, after a conviction in a state court.

What Client’s Say

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.
