Aurora is the second largest city in Illinois. Aurora is considered a suburb of Chicago. Most of Aurora is either in Kane County or DuPage County. Small portions of Aurora extend into Kendall County and Will County. Aurora has a population of roughly 200,000 people. Aurora was originally founded inside of Kane County. But as the years went by, Aurora has expanded into DuPage County, Will County, and Kendall County. Recently, Aurora was ranked as the 34th fastest growing city in the United States.

In the early 1900's, Aurora was known as the "City of Lights" because it was one of the first cities in the United States to have an all-electric street light system. Aurora is known for its impressive collection of architecture. Some of the most famous American architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, and Ludwig Miles van der Rohe designed buildings that are in Aurora.

Aurora was started in 1834 when the McCarty brothers settled in the area. One brother settled on one side of the Fox River and the other brother settled on the other side of the Fox River. Each of them opened a mill on each side of the river. Eventually, East Aurora and West Aurora were formed. In 1857, the two towns were combined into what is now known as Aurora. Soon after Aurora was incorporated, heavy Industries moved into the area. Immigrants from Europe flocked to the area to fill the plentiful manufacturing and industrial jobs. Aurora became the economic engine of the Fox Valley region. The economic growth continued until the early 1970's when the railroad shops closed and Industrial plants and facilities started to leave Aurora.  By the 1980's the unemployment rate reached 16%.   Street gangs started to form and the crime rate in Aurora rose drastically. By the late 1980s, several business and industrial parks were developed in Aurora which helped lead to an economic revival. In 1993, the Hollywood Casino was built on the Fox River in downtown Aurora. The Hollywood Casino brought new construction and development to the downtown area in Aurora. It was around this time that the population in Aurora swelled and numerous residential subdivisions were built.

Client Reviews
I got into an argument with my ex-boyfriend. One thing led to another and when he came close to me I pushed him away. He called the police and when I spoke to the police I told them that I pushed him without realizing that you don't have to hit someone to be charged with a Domestic Battery. Being arrested was terrifying. I spoke to several attorneys who promised they would win the case and were charging a ridiculous amount of money. A friend referred me to James Dimeas. He was straightforward and honest with me and charged me a very reasonable and affordable fee. He got me into the Kane County Deferred Prosecution Program. I successfully completed the program and I just received paperwork in the mail that the case has been expunged and completely removed from my record. I highly recommend Jim Dimeas. He is an honest and straightforward lawyer that will look out for your best interests.

Had a DUI and hired a lawyer who lived in my building that I knew for years and trusted. Thought he was my friend. Paid him (more than I should have) and he handled my case for almost a year and totally screwed it up. I fired him and found out that he had given up his law license around the time I hired him. A friend recommended James to me and he took over my case and handled it the way it should have been handled from the beginning. I cannot stress how HIGHLY I recommend James Dimeas. I wish I would have hired him from day one. He answered all my calls and text messages and cleaned up a royal mess that had been created by the previous guy that I thought was a lawyer. I consider James to be a friend and recommend him to all of my friends. What a great lawyer and an even better guy! J.P.
★★★★★
I had been accused of doing something, by my then wife, that I did not do. I was 100% innocent and was at the lowest point in my life. My mother told me to call James Dimeas. Her friend recommended him to her. James fought for me in court and refused to back down, even when the prosecution offered to lower the charges and make me plead guilty. I refused to plead guilty to something I did not do. The case went to trial and James won my case. I was found not guilty because I was NOT GUILTY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JAMES DIMEAS! Not only is he a great lawyer, but he is also a great human being. The truth shall set you free! C.D.

James Dimeas is a great lawyer who knows what he is doing and will guide you through every step of the process. He will go above and beyond what he needs to do to help you out. Sometimes I would text him in the evening or the weekend with a question and he would always respond. Really made me feel like he cared about me. When we went to court he tore apart the girl that was making false allegations against me and he won my case. That was one of the greatest day of my life. If you need legal help, the only lawyer should call is James Dimeas. Highly recommended! E.L.

I am so lucky to have stumbled upon this great attorney. I made a really stupid mistake at the worst time. I needed to get a case dismissed within 2 or 3 weeks so I could join the military. I could not leave for Basic Training until the case was dismissed and Jim made some calls and got the case dismissed. What a great guy. I’m so lucky I found him online and called him! Somebody was looking out for me. J.S.
