Meet Our Lead Counsel

Attorney Donald N. MacNeil founded the firm in 2010 with his father, Donald L. MacNeil, and his brother R. Scott MacNeil. Their goal was to establish a boutique criminal, DUI, and traffic defense firm with an emphasis on producing results in the courtroom, and providing a high level of customer service.

Donald N. MacNeil operates as lead counsel for all criminal, DUI, and traffic litigation cases. Don is licensed to practice in both Illinois and Indiana. He is certified by the U.S. Trial Bar and is licensed to practice in all Federal District Courts in both Illinois and Indiana. He is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, National College for DUI Defense, the Illinois Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and other organizations. He is past president of the South Suburban Bar Association.

Before starting the MacNeil Firm, Don was a senior associate at a small defense firm with a concentration in criminal, DUI, traffic defense and litigation. He graduated from John Marshall Law School in 1997 after achieving a degree in Psychology from Valparaiso University.

Not content to rest on his laurels, Don has traveled the country, attending conferences and seminars to hone his skills in such topics as search and seizure, DNA analysis, and DUI defense. In fact, Don is one of few attorneys to be trained and certified through the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety program, the same training that most police officers receive. Just one more thing to help achieve a victory in your case.
