Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney for Bartlett Criminal Cases

Bartlett is a Village that is located approximately 3 miles west of Chicago. Parts of the Village of Bartlett are located in Cook County, DuPage County, and Kane County. The population of Bartlett is over 41,000 people.

Bartlett was originally a camping and hunting ground for many different Indian tribes. Luther Bartlett came to Illinois from Massachusetts in 1843. In 1844 Bartlett purchased a 320-acre farm, in what is now Bartlett, as a source of lumber for construction and to burn for fires. He started the Bartlett Manufacturing Company which produced patent neck yokes.  The company brought many jobs to the area but collapsed in 1878 during an economic depression.  In the early 1870's, the Chicago and Pacific Railroad began building a railroad from Chicago to Elgin. In 1873, Luther Bartlett and his wife donated half of their 40 acres of land for the establishment of a train depot. The anticipated location of the train depot was named Bartlett to commemorate the donation of his land.

The Village of Bartlett was incorporated in 1891. What started off as a train depot has grown from a population of 360 in 1990, to 3,501 in 1970, to more than 41,000 in 2010. The Village of Bartlett covers more than 16 square miles. The rapid growth over the past 40 years is due, in most part, to the rapid development along Route 59. Numerous shopping centers have been developed along Route 59 bringing with it many restaurants and many jobs. The Village's economic base has been expanded with the development of three large Industrial Parks inside the Village. Meanwhile, the downtown area maintains its picturesque and small town historic charm.

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.
