Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
The Schaumburg, IL-based law firm Gardi & Haught, Ltd. has hired attorney Martin LaScola to handle the firm’s growing criminal law cases.
“We are an established law firm in real estate, litigation, business, matrimonial and immigration law, but we’ve had increasing inquiries for services in the criminal law sector,” said Tom Haught, partner at the firm. “Martin is a former prosecutor so he understands both sides of the bar and is intelligent, personable and an absolute bulldog in the courtroom. His contribution will allow us to become a premier law firm in criminal law as well as our other areas of concentration.”
LaScola has 13 years of experience as both a prosecutor and defense attorney in trial and pre-trial hearings. He joins Gardi & Haught from private practice, where he built a reputation for his successful negotiating skills and outcomes with the opposition outside of the courtroom. At Gardi & Haught he will spearhead the handling of criminal felony and misdemeanor cases including DUI’s, theft, battery, assault, rape and murder.
“I’m looking forward to helping Gardi & Haught build and grow their criminal department while enhancing their other areas of practice,” said LaScola.
LaScola received his J.D. from the John Marshall Law School in Chicago and a B.A. in Political Science and Philosophy from Marquette University. He began his career as a Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney under former Cook County State’s Attorney Richard Devine. He is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association and is admitted to practice law in the State courts throughout Illinois as well as the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. He is rated “Excellent” on AVVO and is a featured attorney on the site.
