Bob Tumminaro is an effective trial attorney with ten years of experience practicing law throughout the state of Illinois. Bob grew up in Roselle, Illinois. After high school, he enrolled at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He graduated with his bachelor’s degree in political science. Bob then attended law school on an academic scholarship at Northern Illinois University. He graduated law school Magna Cum Laude and in the top 12 of his graduating class. He is licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois and in federal court in the Northern District of Illinois.
Bob is a successful trial lawyer. He started his career as an assistant state’s attorney in Winnebago County where he acquired extensive courtroom experience, having conducted countless jury trials, bench trials, and motion hearings in traffic, misdemeanor, and felony cases.
In 2014, Bob entered private practice where he has focused his practice exclusively on using the skills, knowledge, and insights gained as a former prosecutor to defend the rights of others accused of various crimes throughout DuPage, Cook, Kane, and the surrounding counties.
Unlike most attorneys, Bob is certified to administer the Standard Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs), typically administered by police officers when an individual is suspected of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Bob’s intimate knowledge of the SFSTs allows him to identify failures in the administration of the tests which he is adept at highlighting for the court during the cross-examination of police officers.
Bob has the experience to thoroughly analyze the facts of your case; the insights to apply them to the law; and the experience and tenacity to zealously advocate for you so as to get the best possible outcome for your case.
Bob works as “Of Counsel” with the whole team at Hanauer Law out of our office in Wheaton, Illinois. Bob may be reached via email at [email protected] or by phone at 630-449-4791. “Of Counsel” is a professional designation used by a lawyer to denote a continuing relationship with a lawyer or law firm other than as a partner or associate or the equivalent of a partner or associate. The “of counsel” relationship has as its core characteristic a close, regular, and personal relationship that is more than a mere forwarder or receiver of legal business, more than an occasional consultant relationship, and more than a relationship for the purposes of one case.
