At The Sotos Law Firm, we expertly represent public and private sector clients in federal and state litigation at the trial and appellate levels. With more than 60 years of experience defending Illinois government entities, public officials and police officers, we have developed a solid reputation as the go-to law firm for municipalities and government officials who have been accused of violating the law. By relying on the latest in computer technologies, while maintaining manageable overhead and emphasizing efficiency, we are known for providing the highest quality litigation services commensurate with large Chicago law firms at far more competitive rates.

Experienced Litigators — Learn the Facts First

Our law firm, led by James Sotos, who enjoys an AV Preeminent rating* from Martindale-Hubbell, handles a wide array of litigation matters and internal investigations with a particular emphasis on civil rights issues such as police misconduct and employment discrimination. We offer comprehensive legal services from meticulous pre-suit investigations and discovery to preparing and presenting the most aggressive and thorough defense strategies available.

Having successfully tried a vast number of trial and appellate cases, including work on several cases in the United States Supreme Court, the attorneys at The Sotos Law Firm have done more to expand the protections from liability enjoyed by police officers and prosecutors than most any other firm in the state. Our track record of success makes us a proven leader in the field of defending local governments, municipalities and public officials.

Whether your case is high profile or under the radar of the court of public opinion, you will receive the most aggressive defense available. Though much of our success has been chronicled in high-profile cases involving public officials, we have also successfully defended many private sector clients in state and federal litigation as well. We are dedicated to providing Illinois public officials, and public and private sector companies the best defense available.
