Watch Attorney Faraj
in the News
Attorney Haytham Faraj is routinely featured by the media for his proven advocacy in complex, high-profile cases.
There are many criminal defense and plaintiff's law firms, but very
few that take the time to really get to know clients—and fewer still
who can represent their clients all the way through trial. Too often we
get calls from clients who were forced to plead guilty to something they
did not do or to accept a settlement because the lawyer lacked the skills
or experience to take a case to trial. Our Chicago defense firm is different.
We take our time to get to know our clients.
At The Law Offices of Haytham Faraj, PLLC, we have built a solid reputation
based on trust, integrity, exceptional representation and an unshakeable
commitment to our clients. Whether you have been accused of a
military crime or
state crime, we can help you in defending yourself, preserving your liberty, and protecting
your career and future.
We represent clients in state and federal courts facing a wide range of charges:
We recognize the devastating impact a serious injury or the loss of a loved
one has on our lives. Becoming a victim of someone's neglect often
changes the entire trajectory of a person's life, especially when
their injury results in physical disability, pain, suffering, frustration,
depression, anger, lost income, and the loss of life's simple pleasures.
Sometimes a negligent or wrongful act results in the wrongful death of
a loved one.
If you have suffered a
personal injury or lost a loved one because of someone's neglect or because of someone's
intentional or wrongful act, we can help. You can trust our experience,
caring, committed and aggressive representation in obtaining the justice
you are entitled to.
