Loyalty. It's not just a word to Boris Djulabic. It is a way of life. Boris Djulabic is a principal attorney and founding partner of D&O Law Group. A first generation Croatian American – Boris grew up speaking Croatian at home and English in the Chicago Public School system. Boris grew up on the East Side, a working-class neighborhood on the far south side of Chicago cast the shadows of once-mighty steel mills. Boris often worked side by side with his immigrant father, forging a deep work ethic that is ingrained in him to this day. Boris attended St. Francis De Sales High School and learned the value of an education. Boris also developed a sense of loyalty to the city that raised him and set forth on a path that would forge deep ties to his neighbors. That sense of loyalty led Boris to accept the honor of being selected as the commencement speaker for a recent St. Francis De Sales graduating class.
After his years at De Sales, Boris attended the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana where he made many international friends and began to realize that he could use his education to help those around him. Inspired by a professor and his desire to help others, Boris decided to attended law school and enrolled at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. While earning his Juris Doctor degree Boris worked as a law clerk in a premier personal injury law firm with deep ties to the community. Boris also served his community by clerking at the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, where he was able to practice law under the guidance of veteran prosecutors. Boris knew from these early experiences that the path of the litigator spoke to him.
Prior to co-founding the D&O Law Group, Boris was honored to be appointed an Assistant State’s Attorney at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. Boris began his legal career helping others by handling thousands of family law matters in Chicago and throughout suburban Cook County. Boris enjoyed assisting countless individuals through parentage and child support issues.
Boris was soon promoted. His new duties included handling felony and misdemeanor narcotics cases. His responsibilities included handling cases ranging from possession and delivery of controlled substances to weapons offenses, traffic cases, property crimes, crimes against persons, and sex offenses. One of Boris' specialties is search and seizure law, primarily as related to narcotics offenses. Boris' work as an Assistant State's Attorney also included working with victims of crime, police officers and detectives reviewing cases for felony approval. He has also handled countless bond and preliminary hearings, motions to quash and suppress evidence and identifications, bench and jury trials. Boris developed a strong sense of comfort in a courtroom while working with opposing counsel and Judges at the Cook County Criminal Courts building located at "26th and Cal", many of whom have become close friends of his.
Realizing he could help people in other ways, Boris developed a successful real estate practice where he helps his clients make the most important purchase or sale of their lives; their home.
