Albukerk & Associates was founded by Nick Albukerk. Nick Albukerk has over thirty years of experience with every facet of litigation. 

Nick Albukerk has tried over 700 cases, and handled thousands of: medical malpractice, police misconduct, catastrophic personal injury cases, DUIs, misdemeanors, felonies, drug cases, rape and murder cases.

In 1983, Nick Albukerk began his career at the Suffolk County, New York Medical Examiner’s Office where he assisted the medical examiner and learned a variety of forensic tools, processes and tests.  In 1987 Nick Albukerk interned full time as an investigator with the Washington D.C. Public Defender’s Service.  Lesson learned from these early teenage experiences: you cannot win your case without good facts; good facts only come with complete immersion into the case. That is why Nick Albukerk makes every effort to go to the scene immediately, preserve video and audio, talk to the witnesses, get statements, and understand every detail and nuance of your case.  The Public Defender Service rewarded Mr. Albukerk for his hard work and good results with a permanent investigator staff position and awarded him a certificate of outstanding service for his work as an investigator. Mr. Albukerk went to law school at Case Western Reserve School of Law.  For eight years Nick Albukerk honed his litigation skills in the Cook County Public Defender’s Office by trying hundreds of cases and receiving several commendations for excellent results.  Since 2002 Nick has been in private practice where he has developed a reputation for zealous representation, creative thinking and excellent results in the Chicagoland legal community.
