Rockford IL | Criminal Defense, DUI, & Traffic Lawyer
Experienced lawyer handling Criminal Defense, DUI, and Traffic cases in the Rockford, Illinois metro area
The Law Office of Paul M. Marriett is a law firm in Rockford, Illinois, that handles personal injury cases and criminal defense matters by defending the accused in traffic, DUI, misdemeanor, and felony charges.
We pride ourselves in being Honest, Reliable, and Compassionate. Dealing with an injury or arrest means that someone — either an irresponsible person that has caused someone an injury, or the government — has put someone in a position that they would give anything to avoid. We can offer guidance on what paths lay before you; give you recommendations based on what other people have done in similar situations; or give you an idea of how we might personally react in your situation.
Why choose us as your personal injury lawyer or criminal defense lawyer?
Ultimately, you control the direction you want your case to go. Our practice is service oriented. From the moment you come in with your legal problem, you will be asked, “What are your goals while working with us?” We work both with and for you. What you want to have happen is the ultimate goal we work toward.
When you work with the Law Office of Paul M. Marriett, you can expect to receive top-rated negotiation and litigation expertise that will help us obtain the favorable personal injury outcome that your case deserves.
What’s it like using a personal injury lawyer or criminal defense lawyer?
From the initial meeting until your case is resolved, you will be able to approach us with questions, concerns, issues, and your thoughts. You will always get an honest opinion or explanation of how various decisions can impact and influence your case, and you can rely on us to be there for you. We know that anyone seeking out services to deal with a traumatic injury, criminal charge, DUI, or traffic case is dealing with one of the most stressful, painful, and emotionally draining parts of their life. We have been able to represent family members and friends in a host of legal matters and have represented thousands of folks in their cases.
Will I need to have a trial to resolve my case?
While very few cases do end up at a trial, we prepare every case as though it will go into litigation and assume that we will be asking a jury or judge to rule in our favor to resolve your case. In interviewing witnesses, reviewing police reports, consulting with treatment providers, and working closely with our clients, we utilize a high level of preparation to reach better settlement terms whether by settling with an insurance provider, business, or the government with a plea agreement. We know it’s never someone’s best day when they call us, but we strive to make sure that when their case ends whether through trial, or a settlement agreement, that, that day is one of those best days for our client and their family.
What areas does your law office cover?
Our trial practice is concentrated throughout the criminal and civil courts of Illinois. While our primary office is located in Rockford, Illinois, we faithfully serve citizens throughout the State having litigated various civil and criminal matters from Rockford, to Chicago, to East St. Louis, practicing in the following counties extensively: Winnebago, Stephenson, Boone Jo Daviess, Carroll, Whiteside, Lee, Ogle, DeKalb, McHenry, Kane, and Cook County (Chicago).

Key Areas of Practice
If you have been hurt in a Rockford car, truck, motorcycle accident, or other incident, your injury may have left you with significant medical bills, pain, suffering, and even the inability to work to take care of you and your family. If your injuries were caused by another person, or if you were injured while at work, we can help fight for your financial recovery. There’s absolutely no fee unless we win you the recovery you deserve.
Our office is a premier criminal defense firm. If you or a loved one are facing a criminal charge, we offer personal service to help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case. You’ll work with one lawyer, you’ll have their cell phone number and e-mail address at all times, and there is zero run-around trying to get in touch with your attorney. You’ll never have an associate or some other stand-in with you in court.
Our office provides a high quality defense to any and all DUI charges. From routine first offenders that need charges dismissed through court supervision to CDL drivers that seek amendments to lesser charges, we’ve done it all. If your charge leaves you with the prospect of a revoked driver’s license or prison time, we are adept at fighting the cases that need fought. We’ve successfully argued motions to suppress and motions to strike prior convictions essentially taking away evidence the state needs to support more significant charges.
Our office represents hundreds of drivers every year throughout Northern Illinois. From petty speeding tickets we fight to keep off of motor vehicle record reports to more significant driving while license suspended offenses, to overweight commercial vehicle citations that can have fines exceeding $50,000 at stake. We stay up to date on the Illinois vehicle codes, the case law, and creative defenses that can help when litigating cases that can impact a client’s ability to drive, and/or earn a living.

We can’t thank Paul enough for the help he extended. I was arrested and charged with public indecency and was completely devastated and lost. My wife and I called Paul late in the evening and he replied right away via texts and phone calls. He diligently worked on my case and was able to get a dismissal for my case. I did not even have to attend the court hearing that was scheduled. My wife and I have been very confident and trusted Paul’s expertise and we have not been proven wrong. He is very reassuring and we felt that he truly cared for us. He looked out for us and treated us more than “just a client”. We are very fortunate that we chose Paul and based on his dedication and hard work, he is one of the best lawyers around.
I have worked with Paul professionally as a municipal prosecutor and I am continually impressed by his acumen, integrity, work ethic and vast knowledge of the law. Paul is always very well prepared and it is easily apparent to many of his peers that his clients are well represented. I would recommend his services to others without any hesitation.
Paul was very efficient and professional. He saved me a lot of time by communicating via email and text message! I live in Rockford and received my citations in Ogle County he was able to get my driving on Suspended dismissed and I was able to walk a way with just a petty speeding!! Thank You Thank You Thank You!!
Paul is the most professional attorney I have yet to work with. He follows up on client questions, personally… Which is a big improvement over the managing partner level attorney that I previously hired for my divorce. Paul is a straight shooter and not just trying to pad billable hours.
