Get Experienced & Aggressive Legal Counsel on Your Side

Getting arrested in Illinois can be a frightening, stressful, and confusing situation, especially if you are facing the criminal justice system for the first time. Unfortunately, a conviction is punishable by harsh penalties, including fines and even a jail or prison sentence. To avoid getting conviction or serving any time behind bars, you need to hire a skilled criminal defense attorney.

With more than 100 years of collective experience, our legal team at Johnson Law Group understand what it takes to obtain the most favorable results on behalf of our clients. Many of our lawyers are former police officers and prosecutors who can provide our clients with unique perspective of all sides of the law to help them develop effective and personalized defense strategy.

How We Can Defend You

Our firm handles a wide variety of criminal cases – no matter how minor or serious. We can thoroughly investigate your arrest, collect and examine evidence, negotiate with the prosecution, and build a strong defense to help you either get your entire case dismissed or your charges/penalties reduced.

We offer experienced and knowledgeable legal services for the following types of cases:

  • DUI 
    Not only does a DUI conviction can result in driver’s license suspension, community service, fines, and even jail time, but it can also ruin your future because you now have a permanent criminal record. We can help you challenge the police officer’s evidence and the prosecution’s case against you.
  • Drug Crimes 
    From simple possession and distribution/sale to manufacturing and trafficking, drug crimes carry severe criminal penalties. Many of these charges are considered felony offenses.
  • Gun Crimes 
    Illinois has very strict gun laws. If you violate any of these laws, you could face serious consequences. We can help you protect your Second Amendment right to bear arms and freedom.
  • Juvenile Crimes 
    If your child has been arrested, we can help protect your child’s freedom and future. We have a comprehensive understanding of the juvenile justice system to find the best possible solutions on behalf of your child.
  • Theft Crimes 
    Taking another person’s property with no intention of ever returning it is considered theft. From shoplifting and petit theft to carjacking and burglary, theft crimes can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the value of the stolen item(s).
  • Sex Crimes 
    Merely being accused of sex crime can make you appear guilty in the eyes of the public and media, resulting in significant damage to your personal and professional reputation. Our firm is ready to defend your side of the story and help you fight the allegations against you.
  • Homicide 
    Murder is the most serious violent crime in Illinois and in every state of the country. A conviction can lead to a life sentence without the possibility of parole. We are committed to helping you avoid the maximum penalties for this offense.
  • Appeals 
    Just because you have been convicted does not mean your case is closed. You still have an opportunity to get the conviction overturned or obtain a new trial if you can prove the trial court committed certain legal errors that affected the outcome of your case. Let us take your case to a higher court for review.
