    Leveling the Playing Field for Our Clients

    When a new client comes to us at Johnson Law Group, they are normally behind the eight ball. By the time the person has chosen to hire an attorney, he or she has typically already been arrested. The police have completed a full investigation, and the case is usually in the hands of the prosecutor. Our new client often feels helpless and alone, is being targeted by prosecutors and law enforcement, and may even have been deserted by friends and family. That is where we come in.

    We level the playing field by getting straight to work, identifying the prosecutor and filing motions for discovery of evidence. These actions enable us to find out what the prosecutor knows — and at least as importantly, what he or she doesn't know. We will normally initiate negotiations in pursuit of a favorable disposition such as a reduction or outright dismissal of the charges, but at the same time, we prepare your case for the possibility that it will end up before a jury during a full trial.

    Top-Notch Legal Representation

    No matter how complicated the case before us, our Central Illinois criminal defense attorneys relentlessly pursue favorable outcomes for our clients.

    Our firm is ready and willing to help you too.
