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:
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.
From simple possession and distribution/sale to manufacturing and trafficking,
drug crimes carry severe criminal penalties. Many of these charges are
considered felony offenses.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
