I graduated from Drake University Law School in 1993 and have had cases in City, State and Federal courts since that time as well as state and federal courts of appeals and the United States Supreme Court.  I am licensed in Missouri and Kansas, their Federal courts and Courts of Appeal and the United States Supreme Court as well as an inactive license in Rhode Island.

I was the first person in my family to become a lawyer.  I made the decision to become a lawyer because I wanted to have the power to help people when they most need it.  My brother, Timothy J. Deffet, soon after decided to become a lawyer for the same reasons.  Feel free to contact him for help with any Illinois injury or Workers Compensation cases.
