Sean David Levinson

I have devoted my career to defending those accused of criminal cases.  Previously employed at the Law Office of the Cook County Public Defender, I handled thousands of criminal cases from Traffic offenses through Murder.  I have tried dozens of cases in both jury and non-jury trials.  I also have vast experience in pre-trial motions to suppress evidence.


Based on my reputation, training & experience, I am a featured speaker at legal seminars to help train new and seasoned lawyers regarding trial skills, caselaw updates, and defense strategies. I am passionate about the law and defending your rights.


A Chicago native, I now call Austin my home. I graduated from Arizona State University with Bachelor's degrees in Business Management and Broadcasting.  I returned to Illinois, where I received my law degree at Northern Illinois University.  I then attended the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City where I received my Master's of Law degree, LL.M.


I am licensed to practice law in Texas, Illinois, and New York.
