Law Offices of Robert C. Cotter
Phone: 773.405.6153/24Hr
53 W. Jackson Blvd., Suite 724
Chicago, IL 60604-3474


Every person charged with a crime deserves experienced, intelligent, committed, and respectful legal representation.

Mr. Cotter has successfully representated individuals facing a wide variety of state and federal  criminal charges, both felony and misdemeanors, including :

  • aggravated battery
  • drug possession
  • first degree murder
  • attempted murder
  • retail theft
  • burglary
  • armed robbery
  • DUI
  • firearms cases  (UUW)
  • ID theft

…and many more.

Robert Cotter takes each case seriously, listens carefully to his clients, and keeps them fully informed on their case.

While 90% of all criminal cases in the circuit courts are resolved with negotiated pleas of guilty, Mr. Cotter has taken many cases to trial and won, both felonies and misdemeanors.  He has also won many other cases as a result of pre trial motions.

Immigrants facing criminal charges, even minor ones, often risk not only prison but also deportation.  For example, two “supervisions” for shoplifting $1 items (misdemeanor “Retail Theft”) can mean deportation even for a legal permanent resident of 30 years.

But detention and deportation are often avoidable- if the criminal attorney understands immigration law.

Attorney Robert Cotter has particular and extensive experience in preventing criminal charges from damaging his client’s immigration status. In fact, Mr. Cotter often advises other criminal attorneys regarding the immigration consequences of criminal cases.

Mr. Cotter has the clear legal judgment and real world experience necessary to properly advise you every step of the way through the criminal justice system to the best possible outcome.

Mr. Cotter is admitted to practice in all State of Illinois Courts, the Federal Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and all Immigration Courts in the United States. He is also a member of the Chicago Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
