We all make mistakes. It’s human nature. Hopefully the mistakes are not too big and we can take away a “life lesson” from the situation, then return to our normal life.
However, sometimes the mistakes are too big to handle alone and sometimes the consequences of our mistakes are overwhelming. That is where I can help.
My name is Bob Hockemeyer, I am a criminal defense attorney serving Chicagoland and the surrounding counties in northern Illinois. I handle cases from the simplest traffic tickets, all the way up to major felonies. DUI’s, however, are the bulk of my practice.
From the start of my career to the present, I have always handled criminal cases on one side or the other. As a prosecutor I handled hundreds of matters and as a defense attorney, I have handled thousands of cases, all with the same goal in mind; WIN THE CASE!
That’s what I offer to you, an aggressive defense. If a hearing or trial is necessary, and that looks like our best way to win, then that is the route we will take. If it looks like negotiations will better suit the situation, then competent, focused negotiations are what you’ll receive.

Bob grew up in the Chicago suburbs, went to high school at Wheaton St. Francis and eventually earned his Bachelor’s of Arts at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. Upon graduation, and following his family’s tradition of military service, Robert served six years as a nuclear chemist in the United States Navy aboard the U.S.S. Arkansas and then returned to Illinois to attend the School of Law at Southern Illinois University.
After graduating from law school in 2000, Bob passed the Illinois Bar Exam and began work at the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor.
