Background
 
My name is Rachel Hess. I have been a licensed attorney and practicing law in Illinois since 1994.  I practice primarily in Kane, Kendall, DeKalb and Du Page and other counties on a case-by-case basis. 
 
Experience You Can Trust
I am a former DUI, misdemeanor and felony prosecutor for both Kane and LaSalle Counties. I worked as an Assistant State's Attorney and Assistant Appellate Defender  for almost 5 years.  After that, I worked as a private defense attorney concentrating in both civil and criminal cases.  Altogether, I worked in Kane (and LaSalle) County for  23 years. I have also worked for local and/or State government, in some capacity, for my entire career.  As such, I have developed strong relationships with , prosecutors, public defenders, caseworkers, police officers, judges, clerks, bailiffs and other county personnel. This is crucial to the practice of law because relationships are crucial to the successful practice of law.
 
Published
I have been published in many formats of criminal, traffic, landlord-tenant and CyberCrimes in many formats including practice manuals, bar journals, newsletters and appellate opinions. 
 
Involved in Changing State Law
I am a former member of the Illinois State Bar Association Traffic Laws & Courts Section Council. Additionally,  I was also an Assistant Appellate Defender for the Third District Office of the State Appellate Defender and have continued as an independent contractor since 1999.   In that capacity, I submitted over 75 appellate briefs to the State appellate courts and I have argued before the Third District Court of Appeals.  I have also successfully petitioned the Illinois Supreme Court for Leave to Appeal and have had a brief successfully argued before the Illinois Supreme Court which effectively changed the law in Illinois.  
 
Dedicated, Loyal and Respected
I have been selected by the Kane County Judiciary to serve as one of four criminal and juvenile-abuse/neglect conflict attorneys in Kane County.
 
Serves the Community
I have made public speaking appearances to groups such as MADD, SADD and ZONTA and have appeared as a guest speaker on a local network to discuss issues related to domestic violence. 
 
Philosophy
My philosophy is that communication is the key to client satisfaction and effective case management. I understand that every case is unique and personal to each client. Since my satisfied clients are my best referral resource, I am committed to serving their needs in the most economical and efficient manner possible. 

I am available by phone, fax, voicemail, website and e-mail.  I pledge to give each case the utmost attention and to promptly communicate any development affecting case status  as soon as reasonably possible.   *See communication policy on page*
