Our Team

Attorney Eric S. Maciolek


I founded the Maciolek Law Group because of a desire to have a client centered approach to criminal defense.  I treat all of my clients how they deserve to be treated - like people.  A criminal charge is often simply a symptom of some other underlying issue such as addiction, substance abuse, mental illness, or past trauma.


I consider myself a trial attorney.  My team starts from the basic premise that every case needs to be litigated in anticipation of jury trial.  This is how we get the very best results possible in every case.  I am not friends with the prosecutors or law enforcement.  In this adversarial system my job and passion is to work for you to get out of the legal situation you are in as gracefully as possible.

Perhaps the reason that we are able to get great results in the cases we handle is that criminal defense is the only thing that I do.  I do not dabble in family law, or divorce, or personal injury.  My passion is criminal defense.  I take it extremely seriously.
