Attorney Profile

Richard Fenbert is the founder of Fenbert & Associates, LLC. Located in Chicago, Illinois, he divides his practice between criminal defense matters and personal injury and wrongful death litigation, representing clients throughout the greater metropolitan area. Mr. Fenbert is admitted to practice in Illinois and before federal district courts.

In his criminal defense practice, Mr. Fenbert assists people who have been charged by the state or federal government with the commission of misdemeanor or felony offenses. Some of the matters that he has handled have included driving under the influence of alcohol; drug possession and trafficking; white collar crimes, including fraud and money laundering; assault and battery; burglary; and juvenile crimes. He has an enviable track record when it comes to obtaining not guilty verdicts and the negotiation of plea agreements that are favorable to his clients. Mr. Fenbert's civil litigation practice involves the representation of clients who have been harmed by the negligence or recklessness of other persons or entities, and these cases have arisen out of incidents involving car and truck accidents, premises liability and dog bites. His successful track record in the courtroom and at the negotiating table in both of his practice areas has led to his receipt of a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

Mr. Fenbert is a 2006 graduate of Grinnell College in Iowa, where he majored in political science and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2006. He then went on to attend Case Western Reserve University School of Law, and he served on the Case Western Reserve Journal of International Law and was a research assistant before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2011. He founded his current firm in January 2015.
