Although nobody ever wants to hire a lawyer I was privileged to retain the services of attorney Purav Bhatt. I had a pretty simple case but had concerns that as an accountant any legal entanglement with a negative outcome could have hindered my career. Mr. Bhatt explained both my options and how the process would unfold, he also took care to answer my calls and any questions I had promptly. After the hearing, which had a positive outcome Mr. Bhatt even offered to give me a ride to my destination. It’s little things like the ride people remember and speak volumes about. I hope to never need legal services in my personal life again but if I do I now have an attorney whom I trust.

An Honorable Lawyer

I was very pleased with Purav Bhatt legal services. Purav was very professional, honest, and upfront with my case. I only spoke with Purav over the phone before meeting him in court and just from our phone conversation alone I completely felt comfortable and knew everything was going to work out for the better. The end result my case was dismissed on my first appearance!! I highly recommend Purav Bhatt!!

Someone you can trust

I have to admit, I didn’t think he would do as much as he did. I did my own research and didn’t think there was anyway I would make it out unscathed. Yet somehow, the felony charges were dropped on my first appearance. In court, I felt that he knew and was respected by everyone. He told me the steps that I would take through the process and I felt comfortable every step of the way. There was never a moment where I doubted his abilities, and he is high on this site for criminal defense for a reason. In fact, he has the same amount of reviews as everyone on the first page combined. I would definitely recommend him.

Felony Charges Dropped

Purav was extremely helpful and understanding of a ticket I received when visiting Chicago. He attended the court date on my behalf so that I did not have to travel mid week back to the city. He was able to get my ticket reduced to a fine and keep me informed from the first contact to the finalization of the case. I truly appreciated his honesty on the whole process letting me know of all aspects that could occur. Would recommend him to anyone that lives in Chicago or if you are even from another state.

Best Legal Assistance for an Out of Stater

Recently I was involved in a very complicated situation, a situation in which I thought I wasn’t going to get out so easily. Mr. Purav was my defense attorney, and more than that, he was my hero. Since the very beginning I felt confident in having him as my representative, he was always attentive to all my concerns about the case. He clearly explained every step of the process. He was very trustworthy, I felt very comfortable talking with him about the case, and felt free to ask him anything. Purav managed my case with professionalism, and thanks to his knowledge and experience the majority of my charges were dismiss. I am very happy with the outcome, and I am more than grateful with Mr. Purav. I definitely recommend him. I felt that more than a simple client, Purav sees you as a human being who needs his help unconditionally. Thank you so much for everything!!!

A Hero

Coming from a family of lawyers, though not one myself, I had rather high expectations when I hired Mr. Bhatt to represent me. It is fair to say that he met everyone of them. A cursory search on the net, might yield some lawyers who are a bit cheaper, but in my opinion that would be a mistake. Mr. Bhatt is knowledgeable and quickly put me in a comfort zone by taking the time to explain to me what the next steps would be and what to expect in terms of best case scenario, worst case scenario. 

Misdemeanor charge

I was very impressed with the way my situation was handled before, during, and after my case was dismissed. Atty. Bhatt is very well spoken and gets the job done. He’s someone to know if you have any legal troubles.

Criminal Defense Case

I highly recommend Purav. I’m from out of state and Purav made sure I only had to go to court once, all my charges got dropped. Very efficient and professional service.

Isabelle M.

Mr. Bhatt constantly kept lines of communication open. He answered questions i had in a very timely manner returned my calls immediately and showed up for my case on time. He did everything he said he would and he is the reason i am free today.

Freedom Never Tasted sooo good

Purav represented my son in a criminal matter.  My son had been visiting from his home in CA when he got into trouble.  The situation was further complicated by the fact that there is animosity between my ex and me. Purav communicated with both parents in an inclusive way.  Most importantly, he was respectful toward my son and very supportive of him as the real client who needed his expertise (across state lines).

I was so fortunate to have my case taken by Mr. Burav. He was very professional, extremely friendly, and most of all, he achieved the best outcome for me. Being a former prosecutor, he knew what to do best, and ultimately I got a case dismissed. I strongly recommend him to people with criminal felony cases.

Purav Bhatt is an outstanding lawyer.

He was very concerned, attentive, and understood my situation. He was compassionate with me and was successful in defending my case. I was not thinking straight and was arrested for petty theft, and he carefully explained my options and it led to a successful outcome. In all areas, he was a true Boy Scout and I cannot recommend a lawyer more highly.

Excellent Lawyer

Purav was great. He helped me amend a battery charge to disorderly conduct, and was reassuring and helpful throughout the process. He always replied within minutes of a text. Down to earth, friendly, and sharp.

Sharp, friendly, down to earth

Purav represented me and made the whole court process smooth. He took steps to handle my case in the most efficient and professional way. He also kept me well informed, always responded to my questions and phone calls. He showed up promptly on time on the date and was fully prepared. He has gone above and beyond what was required in every aspect – I highly, highly recommend him.

Excellent Attorney

As a fellow attorney, I highly recommend attorney Purav Bhatt to handle any criminal defense matter in Chicago, Illinois or in the Northern District of Illinois, which is the federal court that Chicago criminal cases may be heard in.

I highly recommend Purav to handle any criminal matter, especially complex federal matters.  Not many attorneys I know have the experience handling federal criminal cases like white collar crime and complex criminal matters. Purav also has great insight into the true workings of the legal system since he formerly worked as a prosecutor.  He is also one of the most dedicated and compassionate attorneys I know

Purav Bhatt was a fantastic attorney whose thorough communication and time spent with me afforded me not only a win in a in my case, but peace of mind and calm knowing that I was in good hands. He was direct, empathetic, timely, and communicated clearly and understandably. I cannot recommend his services enough. And in the time of pandemic he handled all of his representation remotely, which he made seem easy. You are in responsible and good hands with his legal representation.
Mollie Nye
Attorney Purav Bhatt is a truly empathetic lawyer. He listens, he’s honest, and he’s swift to action. Most times when you have to call on any attorney your life is being turned upside down. It is absolutely comforting to know someone is working for you and with you to reach the best possible outcome! He’s truly dedicated to his clients and extremely efficient. Thank you Attorney Bhatt.
Ciji Henderson
Attorney Bhatt is a life saver at times i thought he was not on the job but i fooled myself. I caught a D.U.I. and thought my life was over. I have a cdl license and was able to keep my job and driving privileges because of Bhatt. He even got my charges dropped to reckless driving. He and his team really came through when i needed him. I would highly recommend him to anyone and thanks again Bhatt
Steve Philips
I’ve worked with Purav for the last few years in a number of areas. I’ve always found him to be easy to work with, but more important he is an excellent attorney with a great success rate and a great reputation.
John Bergman

I could not recommend Purav Bhatt and his associate Alex Kosyla more! Purav is excellent at communicating throughout a process that can seem to be very foreign for people without law degrees. His thoroughness and willing to spend as much time necessary with you is just one of the many reasons why he is one of the top attorney’s in Chicago.

Mary Calderon

My case was special because I live out of state. When I spoke to Mr. Purav Bhatt for the first time, he took away my worries. He had goals for my case and showed me steps by steps to get the case dismissed. And it happened. You could contact him any time and he made it easy for you to get things done. He also saved me one flight trip to the court. Highly recommended Mr. Purav Bhatt for your case.- Anonymous

Mr. Purav Bhatt is a great attorney!, Your Content Goes Here
An exceptional attorney! Mr. Bhatt is candid in his assessment of the situation and clear in his explanation of the process. He is professional and effective. I highly recommend his services.
Samuel Siferd

I got in an argument with a woman at an ATM, and wound up being arrested for battery. I was very upset about being arrested and charged with battery, and I was worried about being convicted and having to explain this to every job I apply for in the future. I got even more concerned when the woman who claimed I “battered” her showed up to court multiple times to try and make sure I got convicted! I searched the internet for the best criminal defense attorneys or lawyers in Chicago.
