It is an honor to have Attorney Eric M. Schwing as an integral part of our criminal defense team at Johnson Law Group.

He has won cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and has represented clients in numerous trial courts throughout Illinois.

Before entering the private practice, he was the Deputy Chief Legal Counsel and Senior Staff Attorney for the Illinois Department of Nuclear Safety from 1986 to 1993.
