  • Really provided great help when it was needed most, straight forward, honest and dependable

    I was charged with simply assault and resisting arrest after a stranger had followed my daughter home. I was refereed to Mr. Polinske, we meet and after reviewing my case he said that this may take some time 6 to 9 months or more. He would work on getting the charges dropped but offered no promises and if he needed more from me he would contact me later. It was discovered that my rights to a speedy trial were violated so both charges were dismissed. I thank Mr. Polinske from the bottom of my heart and any time I have a legal issue arise in my future I will contact him.  Daniel

  • Great attorney, Supportive and knowledgeable lawyer

    Mr. Brian Polinske is a great lawyer and I would highly recommend his law firm to anybody who is facing a misdemeanor or a felony. He was able to obtain a full dismissal of three charges against me and my wife and I am really satisfied with his service. The prices are relatively higher given the location of his office; however, you can not go wrong with having him represent your case. You will pay less than what is deserved to be paid when you see the outcome. Last but not least he has a great circle of influence, he knows most of the key prosecuters in Madison county and I would rate him 9 on a scale of 1 to ten. He is really confident and is able to get any first time offender charge dismissed.




  • Magic in Court

    Polinske & associates is the place to call if your in any kind of trouble, Brian Polinske got me out of a jam, i could have had a felony on my record and he got me off the hook, It was a thing of beauty watching him do his magic in court, It was a pleasure working with a man of his caliber, highly recommended.

  • Satisfied Client

    Brian kept a strong hand on getting my case dismissed. Although this was not a great situation, he did lighten the burden throughout the process, clearing me from aggravated assault.




  • First Rate Lawyer

    Our daughter was charged with Aggravated Battery. We had initially thought we would just let her be represented by a Public Defender but at her Preliminary Hearing we realized she needed a good Criminal Lawyer in order to get a fair trial. We asked friends and associates if they knew a GOOD Criminal Lawyer. Several people recommended Brian Polinske so we scheduled an appointment with him. He was friendly, approachable, informative and we felt he would be a good choice. Before the trial he constantly answered our questions and kept us informed. During the cross examinations, Mr. Polinske was very professional, unlike the Prosecuting Attorneys. He comes across as sincere and trustworthy. Many of our family and friends were in court and they were all very impressed with the wonderful lawyer we had chosen. Our daughter was found NOT GUILTY. . We have given Mr. Polinske the highest ratings possible and would recommend him to friends and family. He is a Great Lawyer!

  • Simply amazing, calm and understanding

    I'm a college student and made a stupid decision my freshman year. I did some research on the lawyers in edwardsville and ran across the Brain & Polinske team. I choose them due to the reviews on their website and moreover the level of severe ness of the cases he handled and the great outcome of them. Contacted Brian let him know what was going on and immediately he made me fell at ease. I don't care what time of the night it was 3am or 5am brain answered all of my crazy paranoid emails immediately! He represented me in court and was able to get my charge reduced to disorderly conduct and I paid a small fine of I believe $260.00. 2years has passed and I need my charge/arrest expunged from my records. Although I am not eligible for expungement until October 2014 brain is so good at what he does he has informed me that he will get it done now so that it will not effect my application into my BA program for fall of 2014. See what he has done with my small case imagine what he can do with yours!

  • Misdemeanor Domestic Battery Dismissal Madison County

    First of all...A BIG Thank you Brian! I'm writing this review because I want to help the next person in my situation make an informed decision when choosing who will represent you. As someone who has never been on the wrong side of the law I suddenly found myself faced with a very serious charge. I started my search making many phone calls and spent several hours reading reviews. I needed to make the right choice. Folks, look no further. I read through all of his recent cases on his website as well as some of his reviews here and decided to make an appointment with Brian. He was very polite and answered my questions directly. But importantly, he also seemed confident about my case and knew the law well. 
The Result: I never had to step into court. After three months and three attempts by Brian I received a phone call with the good news...case dismissed! His paralegal kept me informed along the way and I always felt "in the loop." 
(I am in the middle of a divorce and was shockingly arrested for domestic battery. Apparently it's not uncommon for these charges to be used as leverage in a divorce and/or child custody dispute. I believe this to be true in my particular case. I'm grateful that I had Brian representing me and that the legal system got it right.)


 

  • CANNABIS TRAFFICKING CLIENT

    Almost a year ago, my son was arrested in a little town called Edwardsville, Illinois for transporting illegal products across stateliness. At that time, my son was attending college in the state of Arizona, but his home of record was Texas. My husband and I received a phone call from our son stating that he was arrested, we were upset, but we knew that he would be in need of a good attorney in the located area. We pray that a miracle would come our way. Well to make a long story short, our prayers were answered. Our son provided us a name of an attorney (Brian Polinske). So, we immediately made contact with Mr. Polinske. During our initial phone meeting we inquired about obtaining legal services for our son. We were satisfied with the terms of the legal services provided by Mr. Polinske. How residence was so far from where the incident occurred driving back and forth to court would have been stressful, so Mr. Polinske told us that court appearances would be minimal. We communicated with Mr. Polinske by phone or thru email and his office assistance Jen. Jen was a wonderful help. Jen thanks so very much for your patiences and excellent assistance. Mr. Polinske has demonstrated to us that he was trustworthy and not to mention how knowledgeable he was of the legal system. My son is a young man who has his whole life in front of him. He just made a bad choice. We were please with the final (HE DELIVERED) outcome of the case. All charges against my son were dismissed. Mr. Polinske my family thank you so very much for representing our son a job well done!!!! Overall rating on a scale of 1-10 yes 10
