Serving Will County and Grundy County from Offices in Joliet and Plainfield


Navigating the legal system can be daunting for anyone, but with experienced and knowledgeable legal counsel on your side, your legal matters can be resolved efficiently and professionally. At the Law Offices of Tedone and Morton, P.C., we offer clients dedicated legal representation in a wide range of practice areas. With over 60 years of combined legal experience, our law firm provides strong advocacy in and out of the courtroom.

Whether you are facing criminal charges, divorce or a contentious civil dispute, we will carefully research your case, develop a well-considered legal strategy, and vigorously pursue the best possible resolution to your case. In divorce, estate planning, personal injury, and real estate matters, we will steadfastly advocate for your financial as well as legal best interests.


SECRETARY OF STATE HEARINGS

When the Illinois Secretary of State revokes your driver's license for DUI or reckless driving, the only way to get your license back is through an administrative hearing similar to a criminal court trial. You must convince the hearing officer through documentation and oral testimony that you are now rehabilitated and that reinstating your driver's license will not pose a threat to public safety.

The keys to success at this hearing are preparation and presentation of your case by a Tedone & Morton lawyer with a track record of success in winning driver's license reinstatements. We will work with you to ensure that you have complete and persuasive documentation to present to the hearing officer. We will also prepare you for the oral question and answer part of the hearing and attend the hearing with you as your legal representative.

Divorce

Divorce


A divorce may feel like an emotional matter but it is really a financial and legal matter. You may want it over as quickly as possible but taking the time to do it right will provide you more security in the long run. A savvy divorce lawyer from Tedone & Morton will guide you through each step of the process with sound legal counsel, helping you make wise decisions that serve your and your children's best interests. We will negotiate assertively to help you reach a divorce settlement that addresses all of your wants and needs regarding division of property, maintenance (alimony), child support, and parenting time/authority.

QDROs

With the chance of living to age 80 or 90, protecting your financial security in retirement may be a major concern in your divorce settlement. Retirement savings and pension benefits accumulated by either spouse during your marriage are subject to division with other marital assets. The financially savvy attorneys of Tedone & Morton will make sure that you receive your fair share of those benefits by executing the necessary Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs). If you have retirement benefits acquired prior to marriage, we will make sure those are protected as your sole and separate property.

Criminal Law

Criminal Law


Even in a suburban area like Will County, the criminal justice system can be confusing and overwhelming. If you or a loved one has been charged with any offense, from a traffic ticket that could cost you your job to a felony assault, drug, or theft crime, the criminal defense attorneys of Tedone & Morton will mount a powerful defense for you. Our firm has extensive experience in the criminal courts of Will County and we are well-versed in strategies to mitigate the impact of an arrest on the rest of your life.

DUI

In Illinois, a DUI conviction stays on your record for life, limits your mobility for months or years, and blocks you from many jobs. You can and should try to fight a DUI charge. A successful DUI defense lawyer from Tedone & Morton will thoroughly investigate the details of your case and develop a defense strategy to get the charges and penalties reduced or dismissed entirely. Even if you tested over the legal limit for alcohol or drugs, the police often make procedural errors that we can leverage to get the case thrown out.

Personal Injury

Personal Injury


If you or a loved one has been injured in a car crash, slip-and-fall, or other incident that resulted from another party's carelessness or negligence, you have the right to compensation. You may be pressured by the at-fault party or their insurance company to accept a quick low-ball settlement. Talk to an astute personal injury lawyer at Tedone & Morton before speaking to anyone else about the incident. We will perform an in-depth analysis of your case and ensure that you receive full and fair compensation.
