Champaign Criminal Defense Lawyer

My name is Harvey C. Welch, and I am an attorney with more than 30 years' experience defending people charged with state and federal crimes. The hallmarks of my practice are analytical clarity and a fierce determination to defend my clients' constitutional rights.

A Counterpuncher Who Will Defend Your Rights and Freedom

There are many ways to defend a person accused of a crime. Whenever possible, I try to obtain a dismissal of the charge. In some cases, I may recommend a plea arrangement that minimizes the consequences for my client, but only when there is no other realistic option and my client agrees.

But I have extensive trial experience, including more than 200 jury trials. I am known as an effective counterpuncher, someone who challenges the state's case at every turn. One of the most effective tools I use is to cross-examine the state's own witnesses to discredit its case. In the eyes of a jury, there is no better way to undermine the state's allegations than through testimony by the state's own witnesses.

Whether your case involves a drug charge, a DUI or another felony or misdemeanor, I will tenaciously defend you, seeking the best possible outcome.
