About the Firm
A Family Tradition: Dedicated to Protecting Your Rights
Rick Beuke is the founding partner at Beuke & Beuke. He has continually been listed as one of the top criminal defense attorneys in the state of Illinois. He has been retained by countless high profile clients for the same consistent reason – his tireless pursuit of justice for his clients.
Having grown up on the south side of Chicago he learned the rules of the street. His “street smarts” are joined with his personality to create a defense attorney who is respected by prosecutors in every jurisdiction in which he has tried cases.
After graduating from IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law, Rick joined the Cook County State's Attorney’s Office. During his eight years there he rose to be one of the lead prosecutors in the Gang Prosecution Unit. He tried over 60 murder trials to a jury verdict. He earned the respect of countless judges, fellow prosecutors and the top criminal defense lawyers in the state.
Rick began his career as a criminal defense attorney in 1988. Clients who had feared him as a prosecutor now wanted him to represent them. He has tried cases nationwide, and has fought and earned the respect that comes with the unconditional commitment to seek justice for his clients.
Peter Beuke recently joined Beuke & Beuke. During his time at The John Marshall Law School he began to learn what it took to be a great trial lawyer while he clerked at the Cook County State's Attorney’s Office in both the Narcotics and Felony Trial Division. He was able to try both misdemeanor and felony cases.
After graduating from law school, P.J. joined the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office and gained more experience in the courtroom. Learning from the top prosecutors in that office, he started to understand what it took to be a great trial lawyer. After some time he realized what he had always known inside: he wanted to work side by side with his father, and to begin as soon as possible. That is how the firm of Beuke & Beuke came to be formed in early 2014.
Our goal, day in and day out, is to assure that each client who needs Beuke & Beuke’s services achieves the best possible result in whatever legal situation they find themselves.
