"Again, a law may be both constitutional and expedient, and yet may be administered in an unjust and unfair way."
Abraham Lincoln
In Texas, Ms. Aliperta worked as a law clerk for the nationally recognized criminal defense firm formerly known as Goldstein, Goldstein & Hilley where she worked on numerous state and federal cases and creatively and effectively attacked criminal charges and prepared for criminal trials.

Background

Ms. Aliperta is a proud native of Texas and has recently re-located to join the fight for the rights of the accused in the Chicago area.

Ms. Aliperta practices criminal defense because she firmly believes that every person, regardless of their race, religion, or nationality, has the right to life, liberty, and happiness. Any criminal charge lodged against a person, no matter how petty the offense, is an attempt by the government to deprive that person of those rights. Ms. Aliperta will fight against a sometimes unjust system to protect the rights of all of her clients
