Thomas Touchstone Glasgow

Schaumburg, Illinois, Criminal Defense Law Firm

Before opening the Law Offices of Thomas Glasgow, Ltd. in Schaumburg, Illinois, our lead attorney, Thomas Glasgow was a Cook County State’s Attorney who prosecuted cases ranging from DUI, to multi-kilo felony narcotic cases, to murder. From 1994 until 1998, he worked in the Traffic Division, the Narcotics Division, the Juvenile Division, and the Felony Review Division. In each of these positions he tried both misdemeanor and felony bench and jury cases, supervised other attorneys, interviewed defendants and witnesses, and helped prepare criminal cases for trial.

“I served as a State’s Attorney because I wanted to help people. However, one of the reasons I decided to go into private practice was that I felt the criminal justice system can be a revolving door. I wasn’t able to assist people on a one-on-one level. Through my criminal defense law practice, I have had the ability to change more people’s lives than I could as a prosecutor. With two other experienced attorneys, we represent clients in all types of criminal and civil matters in both Illinois Federal and State Courts.” -Thomas Glasgow

At the Law Offices of Thomas Glasgow, Ltd., we realize getting people on the right path toward becoming a good citizen is an important goal of our firm. In fact, we have numerous thank-you notes from former clients whose lives we have changed by winning their case.

In addition to criminal charges, we help people who need representation in the area of family law, including divorce proceedings and child support issues. We also have experience in other areas of civil representation, including administrative law, licensure, contract disputes, construction litigation, and insurance disputes.
