About Wex Law
A Passion for Performance
Founded in 2005 by accomplished attorney Michael Sean Devereux, Wex Law is a distinguished firm that focuses on federal law; white collar crime; healthcare fraud defense; and e-commerce, business, and entertainment law. At Wex Law, we are passionate about our clients’ rights, and fight tirelessly to get them justice. We firmly believe that "the first guy who quits, loses," and we never want to be that guy.
Wex Law traces its roots back to 1980 at Keck, Mahin & Cate, located on the 92nd floor of the Sears Tower in Chicago. It was at Keck, Mahin & Cate where Michael Sean Devereux was a clerk on the infamous Gulf Oil v. Westinghouse - an antitrust case involving the uranium cartel. It was here that he was introduced to computers, as he was assigned to the document database. Later, Michael was in high demand as a computer programmer, learning at least nine computer programming languages before becoming involved in computer/network security and forensic investigations with the Fortune 100 and the federal government.
In addition to our legal expertise, Wex Law is well-versed in new technologies, making us an up-to-date and cutting-edge law firm.
When you hire Wex Law, you get a commitment to see your case through to the end. Unlike many law firms, we’re not just about the money - we’re about winning, and customer satisfaction is our ultimate goal.
Principles & Values
All law firms seek to serve clients effectively. Some do it more consistently than others. We have over a 99% rate for client satisfaction. We are noted for blazing the trail in computer-based legal matters, but blazing the trail for superior client satisfaction is what we strive for. We are focused on serving our client's needs and not in the financial metrics that are common today in other firms.
How We Are Different
- Our firm is results-oriented toward our client's goals, not on our financial metrics like many other firms.
- Our knowledge of computers and internet security & forensics is unsurpassed.
- We're fighters. Michael was born on the west side of Chicago and grew up on the south side.

"I started this law practice more than 13 years ago with something in mind. I wanted to help people; regular, everyday folks that needed an attorney. I wanted to build a law firm, the very best in the country, to help protect people. This office is set up to win on behalf of our clients and I do it all the time. I am the type of lawyer that gets in front of the jury and asks for justice. And the results prove that I do it well."
