Meczyk has tried over 150 jury trials to verdict in both State and Federal District Courts throughout the United States. He has also tried hundreds of bench/judge trials, motions to suppress evidence, and motions to quash arrests in those same venues. Mr. Meczyk is one of a select group of highly qualified lawyers to be certified by the Illinois Supreme Court as lead counsel in death penalty cases. Illinois has since abolished the death penalty. In addition to his over 30 years in the practice of criminal law and extensive trial work, Mr. Meczyk has exceptional appellate court experience. Mr. Meczyk represented one of the defendants in the nationally covered Family Secrets mob trial where he was lead counsel for Mr. Anthony Doyle. Recently, Mr. Meczyk represented Mr. Christopher Figueroa in a state prosecution for first degree murder. However, Mr. Meczyk continued to fight for his client. He successfully argued Mr. Figueroa's appeal and due to Mr. Meczyk's efforts, Mr. Figueroa was granted a new trial. In the second trial, Mr. Meczyk, along with Mr. Goldberg and Mr. Cheronis, continued the zealous representation of Mr. Figueroa, who was found not guilty. As a result of Mr. Meczyk's tireless efforts, Mr. Figueroa left the courthouse a free man. Additionally, Mr. Meczyk has argued in almost every U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals throughout the country. In the high-profile Family Secrets trial of the Chicago Outfit, the infamous mob group run by Frank Calabrese, and, earlier, Al Capone, Mr. Meczyk represented police officer Anthony Doyle. Mr. Meczyk fought prosecutors' description of Doyle as a sleeper agent for the mob, which ultimately helped to reduce his prison sentence from 20 to 12 years. Mr. Meczyk represented Brett O'Dell, a member of the notorious Carlisi Street Crew, which conducted various organized criminal activities under the supervision of the Chicago Outfit. "After prosecutors finished presenting their evidence, Meczyk put Ratliff on the stand to deny he had asked anyone to kill the victim, who had recovered from a bullet wound. 'I was the one who did the shooting,' Ratliff said. Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg represented Mr. Huitron at trial, and after Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg exposed the outright lies in the witnesses' testimony, Mr. Huitron was found NOT GUILTY and avoided spending decades in prison. Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg represented Mr. Huitron at trial, and after Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg exposed the outright lies in the witnesses' testimony, Mr. Huitron was found NOT GUILTY and avoided spending decades in prison. Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg diligently prepared for the hearing on their motion, and prepared a "blow up" version of Mr. Gillespie's alleged statement. Mr. Meczyk recommended that Mr. Weir proceed to trial. In the second week of the government's case in chief, Mr. Meczyk conducted a vigorous cross-examination of the government's star witness, Dr. Steven Boren, Medical Director for Medicare Part B for Illinois, Wisconsin, and Iowa. After Mr. Meczyk's cross-examination, the government returned with an astounding offer. Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg vigorously argued for a departure under the advisory sentencing guidelines, and the federal judge agreed. However, Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg, continued to fight for their client. After a lengthy hearing on a Motion to Suppress Evidence tried by Mr. Meczyk, the Criminal Court Judge in DuPage County, held that the Special Task Force that conducted the search and gathered the evidence had arrested Mr. Fajks without probable cause. In a state prosecution of a drug case for possession of cocaine, Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg, filed a Motion to Suppress the drugs. In a state prosecution of a drug case, where Mr. Hamid was charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg filed a Motion to Produce an Alleged Informer. However, after Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg won the Motion to Suppress, the Government concluded that it could not proceed to trial without the suppressed evidence and dismissed all charges against Mr. Ramirez. After Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg successfully argued a Motion to Quash the Search Warrant (Franks Hearing), the judge ordered the prosecutor to reveal the name of an informer. At trial, however, Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg established that the police did not recover any fingerprints that will show that Mr. Sanchez was involved. Mr. Meczyk and Mr. Goldberg represented Mr. Godoy and Mr. Delgadillo. Due to the work of Mr. Meczyk, an accused party in the Northbrook hazing incident was able to obtain a minimal supervision sentence which was not considered a conviction. People v. Zavalza. In a state prosecution of a drug case where more than 300 kilograms of marijuana were seized, the defendant was charged with a Class X felony and faced at least a 6 year sentence. Mr. Meczyk filed a Motion to Suppress the drugs. In this case, Mr. Meczyk persuaded U.S. District Court Judge Zagel during a long sentencing hearing to sentence the defendant to 10 years, rather than the recommended 24 years. State v. Macias. A judge at 26th and California suppressed 12 kilos of marijuana after a Motion to Suppress argued by Mr Meczyk. State v. Huertas. Mr. Meczyk filed a Motion to Suppress evidence seized on the day of their arrest. This case was reversed based on this motion. Federal Forfeiture. In a highly unusual federal forfeiture case out of Ohio, for a large sum of money, Mr. Meczyk obtained a significant portion of the original sum returned. Criminal Case. In a state prosecution of a drug case, over 100 grams of cocaine (a Class X Felony with a minimum of 6 years) were seized. The defendant was charged with a Class X felony and faced at least a 6 year sentence. Mr. Meczyk filed a Motion to Suppress the drugs. Upon review of the Motion, the State's Attorney reduced the charges and the defendant received 2 years probation. Illinois v. Martinez. Mr. Meczyk hung a jury, 9 to 3 in favor of Not Guilty, in a murder case where their client confessed to the murder and gave the police a 5 page written confession. Mr. Meczyk successfully argued to get both the arrests and the search of a truck quashed in a case involving more than a ton of marijuana.
