Chuck Bretz & Associates, PC was founded in June of 1999


Chuck started by himself with a small office and through his skill and efforts, successfully grew his practice to what it is today. Chuck Bretz & Associates, PC now has an entire floor of office space, six full time attorneys, its own investigator, and more than fifteen support staff. The firm is the largest criminal defense firm in Will County, handling more felony cases then any other law firm in the area. The firm also excels in the area of family law, personal injury, and commercial law.

The practice was built upon a firm foundation of skilled attorneys who aggressively fight for their clients and have superior litigation skills. Chuck Bretz & Associates will continue to grow in the future and continue to deliver the highest level of services to their clients.


At Chuck Bretz & Associates, our commitment to our clients is our primary concern. Often times, attorneys forget that the people they are working for are going through what is likely the most difficult experience of their lives. Chuck Bretz & Associates vows to put the needs of the clients first, and not make it about the bottom line. We will never send directed mailings or engage in substandard business practices to get clients. Our concern for our clients’ well-being is critical to our success.

Mr. Bretz is a well-respected, knowledgeable attorney. He is supported by a caring and outstanding staff that works together as a team. I couldn’t have accomplished this much without them. Highly recommended.
