Robbery involves taking the property of another individual by force. Specific acts associated with robbery include pick pocketing, mugging, or purse snatching. Robbery is often considered a felony crime in Illinois. If an individual is convicted of this offense, he or she may face large fines, years in prison, and other penalties. Aggravating factors — such as using a weapon while committing robbery — may apply, increasing the seriousness of the crime and the penalties associated with a conviction.
Burglary involves breaking into a house, store, vehicle, or other private property with the intent of committing an offense such as theft, robbery, or assault.

The law office of Mr. Glasgow and his partner Stephanie Olsson went above and beyond our expectations. Their patience and knowledge is incredible. Not only were they able to help us with our situation they did it with integrity and our well being in mind above all else. From the first visit we knew we had made the best choice in legal representation. If you take your life, problem, situation or however serious it may be I highly suggest you go with their law office. They aren’t just legal representation they are caring and grounded human beings that will stop at nothing to win for you! I cannot express my gratitude enough! I am very thankful we met them and will always stick with them if any legal representation is needed!
Please know I’m a grateful mom and appreciate both your expertise and gentle manner communicating with our daughter and all you achieved on her behalf.
Tom was highly recommended by a personal friend (another attorney) to assist me in a civil matter. Tom took the time to get to know me and my situation, and it was very clear from the beginning that he had my best interests at heart. I felt very comfortable with his demeanor, expertise and most importantly his compassionate approach. Tom was always available when needed and instilled confidence as I dealt with a challenging situation. I highly recommend Tom for any legal needs. He is amazing attorney with a kind heart.
Thomas is worth more than his weight in Gold. Not many challenge themselves like he does to earn these accolades.
I hired Tom Glasgow and his firm to seal some criminal cases out of Cook County. The charges were very serious, and although I was not convicted of those charges, I knew it would still be an uphill battle in court. During the two years my case was pending, Tom never wavered in his complete dedication to seeing a positive outcome for me. He has excellent legal skills and knew exactly how best to present my case to the judge. He presented the court with a detailed packet of my background and information that undermined the charges filed against me. The judge granted my petition to seal those arrest records. My family and I are grateful to Attorney Glasgow and his firm for everything they did on my behalf. Because of Tom Glasgow, what I believed was a nearly impossible feat turned into a reality for me. I highly endorse and recommend Tom Glasgow for criminal matters and sealings/expungements. Thank you, Tom!
Higher integrity I have never known. Attorneys with better experience you will not find.
I cannot begin to describe just how helpful Thomas Glasgow and his team was. He met with me 1 day after contacting him regarding my case. He was direct and honest with his expectations from me as a client and took care of the rest. His responsiveness to all my questions was quick and diligent. I felt as though I had hired the best professional in the area. His presence is felt in every room he walks into and his results are that of a true expert in the field. Thank you for everything.
Tom is a very knowledgeable, experienced, and professional attorney. At all of our meetings, he showed pure excellence. He was very honest with me about what would happen and my consequences. I greatly appreciated this. He even purchased a copy of my book that I wrote to tell my story of hitting rock bottom and then becoming a success story. I would not have the privileges I have now without Tom. I HIGHLY recommend him!
Glasgow & Olsson are awesome attorneys.
I was very upset about my case and doubting my current attorney when I contacted Tom and his firm. He took time out of his day to talk me off the ledge and helped me to see things in a clearer light and from my attorney’s perspective. He spoke with me nearly 25 minutes when he didn’t have to. Additionally, he called me back FIRST thing in the morning. I did not hire Glasgow & Olsson only because of Tom’s honesty integrity and advice. However, based on this experience I wouldn’t hesitate to refer someone to them. The fact that he advised me to stick with my current attorney instead of just taking my money tells you everything you need to know about him! They are trust worthy hardworking and Tom is very sharp and I could tell from even just a short conversation he had a ton of experience from the nuanced perspective he has on things. Very impressed with Tom. I expect his colleague to be just as exceptional. You get what you pay for in attorneys…but Tom backs it up. His knowledge of judges, other attorneys, the system in general is unmatched in all the conversations I’ve had with various attorneys over the years.
