Pablo DeCastro is a graduate of The University of Chicago and the Tulane University School of Law. He has been practicing as a Criminal Defense Attorney in Chicago since 1994, successfully defending cases from shoplifting to Murder, in State Court and in Federal Court. Mr. DeCastro has beaten all kinds of criminal cases in Chicago, and in Federal Courts around the country.

When he's not in court, he's studying for ways to beat the next case. In order to more effectively challenge scientific evidence such as DNA, fingerprints, and drug lab analysis, he has dedicated hundreds of hours to study and training to learn the science himself. He has taken courses, and earned academic certificates that help him either get the evidence thrown out altogether, or cross examine the government "experts," to destroy the impact of the evidence.

He has become an expert that other lawyers come to for help challenging this evidence in their cases.


Mr. DeCastro is licensed to practice in all courts the State of Illinois, the Federal District Courts for the Northern District of Illnois, the Central District of Illinois, the Eastern District of Wisconsin, the Northern District of Indiana, the Western District of Michigan, The Eastern District of Michigan, and the Southern Distrct of Texas, as well as the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

Mr. DeCastro chose to focus on Criminal Law because he genuinely wants to help people. Your case will not get shuffled to a legal assistant. Mr. DeCastro will handle your case himself. He will get to know you. Your case is important to you, and it's personal for you. It's personal for him too. He will find a way to win your case as if it were his own.
