We make protecting our clients' rights and freedom our top priority, and we aggressively pursue the best possible outcome in every case.

Defending Against Criminal Charges In Illinois

No matter what the charge, you cannot afford to roll the dice with your future. Prosecuting attorneys in Illinois fight hard to prove their cases, and our attorneys fight hard to protect your rights and your freedom. We handle all types of criminal cases from simple misdemeanors to serious felonies including:

We have tried numerous jury and bench trials and successfully argued pretrial motions that resulted in either the dismissal of charges or a significant reduction of the penalties faced by our clients.

If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges, contact us to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case. Our firm is located in Crystal Lake, Illinois, and we serve a broad area of the state including McHenry, Kane, and Winnebago Counties. We take credit cards and offer payment plans. If you are unable to travel to our offices, we will come to you to discuss your case.

Though we have many pre-trial strategies to advocate for our clients, we are seasoned trial attorneys who are always prepared to present a strong defense on behalf of our clients in court. We thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the charges our clients face and carefully craft a strong defense.

Successful attorney-client communication is a key component to a successful criminal case. Our lawyers will keep you informed about your case at every step of the process. We carefully explain all of the options available to you and provide reasoned advice about how to proceed. We strive to have charges against our clients dismissed prior to trial. If that is not possible, we aggressively advocate for a reduction of charges. In some cases, a plea bargain that minimizes the consequences of a conviction is the best possible outcome.

Additionally, we assist clients in obtaining expungements, navigating Secretary of State hearings for license reinstatement, and with driving on a suspended/revoked license, parole violation hearings, bail reduction, and criminal appeals.
