Highly Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer for Hanover Park Residents and Hanover Park Criminal Cases

Hanover Park is a village located about 27 miles northwest of the Chicago Loop. Hanover Park is part of the Chicago Metropolitan Area. Hanover Park is located in Cook County and in DuPage County. Hanover Park was incorporated on August 14, 1958.  

In 1872, Edwin Bartlett donated more than seven acres of property for the construction of a train depot, in what is now Hanover Park. By 1874 Bartlett began making plans to build a Village around the area surrounding the train depot. The town was originally named Ontarioville. By the 1880's the population of Ontarioville began to grow as new homes were built in Bartlett subdivision. The train depot allowed the residents of Ontarioville to reach far beyond the area by train.

By 1920 the population of Ontarioville was 250. Lake Street was built but a bypass went under the railroad tracks and diverted traffic away from the older parts of town in DuPage County. Development lagged in the Cook County portion of Ontarioville until 1925, when a new subdivision was built in Ontarioville. Many people put down deposits for new homes. By the time of the Great Depression, only a few homes have been built. In 1947, the developers of this new subdivision left town with the down payment deposits for the new homes. This caused growth in Ontarioville to grind to a halt. By 1955, Ontarioville was taken off the train schedule as a scheduled stop because of the drop in the number of commuters.

Meanwhile, nearby Streamwood was expanding rapidly. The residents of the Cook County portion of Ontarioville became concerned that Streamwood would annex Ontarioville. In 1858, the residents of Ontarioville incorporated as Hanover Park. They incorporated out of fear that Streamwood would encroach on their land. Shortly after Hanover Park was incorporated, the village established its own realty firm which began building single family homes in Hanover Park. The village also annexed commercial property for development in the DuPage County portion of Hanover Park.

By 1970 the population of Hanover Park began to boom. The Tradewinds Shopping Center was built on the northeast corner of Irving Park Road and Barrington Road. A large portion of land in the DuPage County portion of Hanover Park was annexed. By 1970 the population of Hanover Park was 11,916. By 1990, the population had almost tripled to approximately 33,000. Currently, the dividing line between the Cook County portion and DuPage County portion of Hanover Park is defined by the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway.

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.
