At our office, we understand the sincere importance of having an aggressive legal advocate protect your rights. When your future is at stake, our firm is willing to lay it all on the line for you. We will go to extreme lengths to investigate your charges and compose an argument based on information and evidence that we can gather on your behalf. With an impressive track record in the past, we understand just what it takes to get the job done and defend a client. Whether you are facing simple non-violent misdemeanor charges or you find yourself with a serious violent crime accusation on your hands, it is vitally important to secure legal representation sooner rather than later.

The sooner you involve a Chicago criminal defense attorney, the sooner you will be able to put a wall up against your charges. In addition, it is important that you do not speak with any investigators without your attorney present. With prosecutors out to secure as many convictions as they can, they will try to make you feel that you are guilty unless you can prove that you are innocent. Do not let their interrogations fool you, however. Do not provide any information before talking to your lawyer. Your attorney will be able to speak on behalf of you to ensure that your rights are not violated and no information provided can be used as evidence against you.

As a seasoned law firm serving the residents of Chicago, Illinois, we understand that you will want to say or do anything to prove that you are innocent. We have seen time and time again people releasing a statement believing that it will procure their innocence and it only backfires. As such, it will be essential that you have your Chicago criminal defense lawyer at your side at all times.
