Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer for Streamwood Residents and Streamwood Criminal Cases

The Village of Streamwood is located in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and is considered part of the Chicago metropolitan area. Streamwood is located entirely within Cook County. Cook County has a population of approximately 5.3 million people, making it the second most populous county in the United States. Streamwood has a population of approximately 40,000 people. Streamwood makes up the "Tri Village" area, along with Bartlett and Hanover Park.

The area that is currently known as Streamwood was originally known as Hoosier Grove. Hoosier Grove was known as a home to Dairy Farmers from the 1830's through the 1950's. Streamwood was incorporated as a Village on February 9th 1957. After World War II and the Korean War, war veterans began building homes and establishing numerous instant subdivisions in the area. The residential building boom in Streamwood was largely a result of the GI Bill which provided the money to the veterans that allowed them to buy the new homes. Roughly 11 million new homes throughout the country were financed by the GI Bill. The GI Bill led to a construction boom throughout the country which contributed to the growth in Streamwood.

L&H Builders brought 21 pre-assembled homes that were shipped from Indiana to the corner of Bartlett and Schaumburg Roads. The pre-assembled homes were assembled by a local builder in less than two weeks. After the homes were assembled, the community had enough homes and residents for L&H builders to incorporate Streamwood as a municipality. The first Village Board of Streamwood consisted entirely of employees of the local builder that had assembled the pre-assembled homes.

By the 1970s, a housing surge allowed Streamwood to grow in size over five square miles. Its population surged to over 18,000 people. Shopping centers where developed along Bartlett Road and Irving Park Road. Streamwood High School opened on Schaumburg Road and the Library and the Park District opened up new facilities. By the 1980s Lake Michigan water was brought to Streamwood and the Village experienced great growth.

Currently, Streamwood is home to over 40,000 residents. Streamwood is one of the fastest growing communities in the Chicago Metropolitan Area and is recognized as being one of the most progressive communities in the area.

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.
