Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer for Hoffman Estates Criminal Cases and Hoffman Estates Residents

The Village of Hoffman Estates is a large village located in the northwest corner of the Chicago metropolitan area. Most of Hoffman Estates is located in Cook County with a small section in Kane County. It has a population of about 54,000 people. In recent years Hoffman Estates has annexed quite a bit of vacant land and made it part of the village. As a result, it has an area of approximately 21 square miles. Much of the land in Hoffman Estates is vacant while other parts contain developments such as the Prairie Stone Business Park and the Sears Center. Approximately 70% of the residents of Hoffman Estates are married and the largest employers in Hoffman Estates are the Sears Holdings Corporation, AT&T, and St. Alexius Medical Center.

Hoffman Estates is a relatively new Village. The history of Hoffman Estates begins in 1954 when a local farmer sold 160 Acres of farmland to Sam and Jack Hoffman. Sam and Jack Hoffman owned the Father and Son Construction Company. The land was located east of Roselle Road between Golf and Higgins. The Hoffman brothers began to build single-family homes. The first families moved into the new homes in late 1955. The homes were built on half acre lots of land and were sold for $14,500. The Hoffman Brothers were accepting down payments as low as $700. The new construction started to attract residents to the area. In 1959, the residents of Hoffman Estates incorporated the Village. At the time that Hoffman Estates was incorporated, the population was about 8,000 people.

In 1962 the first land north of the tollway was annexed to the Village of Hoffman Estates. The annexation of the land north of the tollway more than doubled the size of Hoffman Estates.

In 1980 many small office buildings were built in Hoffman Estates.  In 1991 Ameritech opened its regional headquarters in Hoffman Estates. The next year, Sears Roebuck and Company moved its headquarters into the Prairie Stone Business Park. The Prairie Stone Business Park has more than 800 acres of office space, research facilities, and high-tech Industrial use.  Starting in the late 1980s, Hoffman Estates started moving away from being a primarily residential community to be coming a large Commercial Center.

Today, Hoffman Estates has a population of well over 51,000 people. The total Incorporated land area of Hoffman Estates is over 19 square miles. The Village of Hoffman Estates is a thriving community that has won 16 Governor's Hometown Awards for its innovative community programs.

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.
