Defending people from the start.
Before graduating from the DePaul University College of Law, Matthew was already working for clients accused of crimes. First learning how to work in the appeals courts, Matthew drafted a winning appeal prior to even graduating from DePaul. After graduation Matthew put his diploma to work by spending “all day, every day” in court working for and advising people as an assistant public defender. After being promoted to supervisor, Matthew left public service to start his own practice helping people like you. He now practices mainly as a criminal defense attorney in Kane County and McHenry County.
Many Kane County criminal defense attorneys started as prosecutors and later made the switch. While they were busy putting people in jail, Haiduk was sharpening his skill for keeping them out. Matthew has never prosecuted a person like you. He has dedicated his career to helping people like you.
