The Chicagoland Law Firm zealously defends clients that are charged with crimes in DuPage County,  in Cook County, in the Chicagoland area  and throughout the state of Illinois. We handle charges that range from traffic violations and petty offenses to misdemeanors and felonies. Our goal is to achieve the best outcomes possible for clients.

Our Criminal Defense Lawyers win reductions in charges and outright dismissals thanks to vigorous, pro-active defense strategies.  We negotiate with prosecutors to win plea agreements that result in lower fines and little or no jail time. We win not guilty verdicts from judges and juries when cases go to trial. We see that criminal records are expunged or sealed after sentences are served.

Criminal Defense Attorney defending Clients against Illinois criminal charges

Pratice Area

Guilty or innocent, your Constitutional rights must be followed. That means your arrest must be Mirandized, and questioning must cease when you demand an attorney. You are also afforded the right to face your accuser. Fighting charges without a criminal defense attorney makes prosecutors and detectives smile. The state’s focus is on getting you to provide incriminating information — not uncovering the truth. Cops are backed by prosecutors with limitless government resources to make the charges stick. Illinois jails and prisons are filled with people who thought they could talk their way out of criminal charges. Including those who agreed to a plea bargain without knowing their rights under the law.  Fighting the State of Illinois without the help of a qualified defense attorney is like entering a lion’s den.  

It does not matter what stage your case is in – suspect, arrestee, arraigned, or adjudicated – you are afforded rights. One is the right to competent counsel. An experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer will navigate your issue and safeguard your Constitutional liberties.  You need a Criminal Defense Attorney to guide you a every step as you naviate the Illinois criminal justice system’s intricacies and complexities.
