Suburban Divisions

Each suburban division is housed in one of five Cook County Courthouses located outside of the city of Chicago. Each division is responsible for the representation of all indigent clients charged with any criminal case in the broader area, which includes the suburb in which the court is located and, in some of the courthouses, some cases sent to them from Chicago to relieve some of the congestion in the Leighton Criminal Courthouse. As such, each of the attorneys, investigators and support staff in the suburban divisions must be familiar with the operations and practices of several different police agencies and the Cook County Sheriff’s Police. The suburban divisions maintain their own staff, which include attorneys, who represent clients charged with everything from misdemeanors to first-degree murder, investigators and support staff.
