Today, Boris Djulabic and Camilo Oceguera of www.dandolegal.comhelped a young man get his professional life back.
Working for a major corporation that required certain professional licenses, he was told he could not meet the criteria for said license due to a conviction in the early 2000’s for a gun offense. It was his first and last run-in with the law.
Fortunately for him, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled in 2013, that the offense he was charged with was unconstitutional. These rulings do not automatically vacate old convictions and cases, however.
The D&O Law Group researched his case and filed the appropriate motions to get him back in front of the same Judge he stood before over ten years ago and pled guilty in front of, making him a felon. After reading the motion the Court was prepared to make a ruling. The State agreed that our petition had merit, the case law was correct, and did not object to our request.
As a result, our client now has an absolutely clear criminal record and qualifies for the professional licenses need to keep and advance his employment.
The best part of the experience for us was that it fulfilled our motto of “helping good people, in tough spots, every day.”
If you find yourself in a tough spot, feel free to reach out to Boris Djulabic and Camilo Oceguera to help get life back on track!

Search warrant limitations
In an interesting decision handed down by the Illinois Appellate Court in the summer of 2015, police are once again held to a high standard when executing anticipatory search warrants. In executing these warrants, and specifically when police have installed a “breakaway filament” to alert them to the opening of a package, the Appellate Court held […]
