Before opening the Law Offices of Thomas Glasgow, Ltd. in Schaumburg, Illinois, Attorney Thomas Glasgow was a Cook County State’s Attorney who prosecuted cases ranging from DUI, to multi-kilo felony narcotic cases, to murder. From 1994 until 1998, he worked in the Traffic Division, the Narcotics Division, the Juvenile Division, and the Felony Review Division. In each of these positions he tried both misdemeanor and felony bench and jury cases, supervised other attorneys, interviewed defendants and witnesses, and helped prepare criminal cases for trial.
“I served as a State’s Attorney because I wanted to help people. However, one of the reasons I decided to go into private practice was that I felt the criminal justice system can be a revolving door. I wasn’t able to assist people on a one-on-one level. Through my criminal defense law practice, I have had the ability to change more people’s lives than I could as a prosecutor. With two other experienced attorneys, we represent clients in all types of criminal and civil matters in both Illinois Federal and State Courts.” -Thomas Glasgow

In addition to criminal charges, we help people who need representation in the area of family law, including divorce proceedings and child support issues. Attorney Stephanie Olsson mindfully represents domestic relations clients throughout the Chicagoland area to reach equitable resolutions to matters that are closest to home.

Attorney Olsson’s background in criminal law assists Ms. Olsson execute an aggressive yet practical approach to your matter.
“Domestic relations matters are incredibly personal to each individual client. It is important to listen to a client, hear his or her goals and objectives for a case, and then guide the client via the litigation process to a resolution that is in the client’s and if applicable, children’s best interests. As a domestic relations attorney, I seek to ensure that my clients understand that each has a voice in his or her case and that voice is an integral piece in guiding a case to a resolution.” -Stephanie Olsson
We also have experience in other areas of civil representation, including administrative law, licensure, contract disputes, construction litigation, and insurance disputes.

Tom, I just wanted to let you know I am very happy with the outcome of my DUI case. Thank you for your hard work and for treating me as a valued client. You went above and beyond to get me the decision you got. I was hoping for that kind of decision but knew it would be difficult to get it. I don’t know of any other CDL drivers who has received a DUI and not lost their job. I would also like to mention how attentive you were. I was surprised at how fast you returned phone calls and emails. In my dealing with attorneys in the past they are usually very slow to return calls and emails, sometimes days before I heard back. It’s those types of attorneys that give attorneys a bad reputation. You are the exception to the rule and take your job serious and treat your clients in a professional manner and as an asset, You listen to their concerns and work on getting them the outcome they are looking for not just what’s the quickest and easiest solution. In my case you could have easily taken the district attorney’s offer at the first court date of supervision disregarding the summary suspension that would have occurred and then just said there is nothing I can do about the summary suspension. But you knowing my needs of retaining my job if possible chose to postpone the court date in order to try and work out the summary suspension knowing that a supervision on the criminal case wasn’t going to keep my license if I received a summary suspension anyway. That is what really set you apart from most attorneys. I think most of them would have jumped on the supervision on the criminal case without worrying about the summary suspension. Once again THANK YOU very much. Please feel free to use this letter on your website or any other promotional tool as I would highly recommend you as an attorney in any criminal case.
Out of state business professional stopped by troopers while paying toll at toll both and ultimately charged with DUI on Schaumburg, IL interstate. This charge put me in a life- changing situation and with no time to waste, I needed immediate professional counsel. I found Mr. Glasgow online and saw that his offices had outstanding client feedback. Gave Mr. Glasgow’s office a call and immediately felt like I was in good hands after the free consultation. Communication, expertise and consistency are 3 qualities this firm has mastered. In a legal crisis those qualities are essential. Anytime I called or emailed Mr. Glasgow’s office during the course of my case, I received immediate honest answers and understanding to the current status of my case. We went to trial and Judge ruled not guilty. Very satisfied with the outcome of my court case. I highly recommend Mr. Glasgow and his firm. Thanks again.
