Defending Your Rights and Freedom

My firm will work to build a strong and effective defense for you. I will examine every factual and legal issue in your case, seeking a way to obtain a dismissal of the charge. I will place particular emphasis on seeking an outcome that not only minimizes the penalties you face, but also keeps a conviction off your record. Fortunately, in many cases (particularly those involving first-time offenders) it is possible to avoid a permanent criminal record. I will work diligently to defend your rights and freedom every step of the way.

Why Hire a Private Defense Lawyer?

University of Illinois Student Legal Services can provide you with defense representation if you are charged with a misdemeanor. However, the attorneys at that office carry heavy caseloads. As a result, your case may not get the attention it deserves.

For aggressive, results-oriented representation, you should consider hiring your own defense attorney. While this will cost more, you will be assured that your case is being handled by an experienced defense advocate who has your rights and interests in mind.
