About Me

Federal Criminal Defense Attorney in Chicago, Illinois Serving Nationwide

United State Supreme Court house

Phillip A. Turner

Attorney at Law

After earning my J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School, I began my career as a federal prosecutor. During that time, I developed a detailed understanding of how the government handles criminal cases. I now use that knowledge to defend the rights of those accused of white-collar crimes like bribery, fraud, and tax evasion. From my office in Chicago, Illinois, I work on behalf of clients throughout the United States.
