Chicago criminal defense attorney Rick Halprin has been at the center of legal world action and drama for decades now. Halprin has defended a slew of accused criminals in a series of high-profile federal cases throughout his years in law, but he is most widely known for his representation of the notorious Joseph ''Joey the Clown'' Lombardo in a series of American mob cases. With a career that spans more than 35 years in the business, it's pretty safe to say that Halprin's second nature is certainly the art of criminal defense.

Halprin was always fascinated by law, so it was no surprise that he chose to go to law school when he continued his education later in life. Halprin attended and graduated from John Marshall Law School. Once he got a taste of law in school, Halprin decided, very early on, that he wanted to focus on criminal defense.

After he finished law school, Halprin landed a job with fellow attorney and neighbor Jerry Feldman. Feldman had a general practice, but Halprin's desire to practice criminal law soon got the best of him—he was ready to swim with the real sharks.
