The Defenders has moved!
Since formation in 2009 as the criminal defense division of the Richard Harris Law Firm (RHLF), The Defenders Firm has been located on the third floor of the RHLF building at 801 S. 4th Street. We have moved and now have street level access, and free parking when visiting The Defenders, across the street and one block south at 830 S. 4th Street, right next to Chicago Joe’s restaurant.
Due to the growth of RHLF, many functions of the firm, such as marketing and administration, have taken up residence at this new location, and The Defenders and Ticket Busters now have beautiful new offices located in this recently remodeled building.
