Let Our Chicago Criminal Defense Attorneys Help

There are seemingly countless law firms throughout the greater Chicago area that handle criminal cases. They may claim to be the best or say that they are the most experienced. It can be difficult to know which firm or attorney to choose for your case.

At the Law Offices of Howard J. Wise & Associates, we know that you have many choices in criminal defense representation, and we hope that you will consider our firm. We don't make false guarantees or empty promises to our clients. Here, you will find honest and straightforward information regarding your unique charges, case and concerns. When you call a criminal lawyer at our law offices, you will find that we are truly here to help. Our extensive experience and resources will be applied to your case.

Our team includes former prosecutors who have handled thousands of criminal cases as both prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys. We appear regularly in Cook County courtrooms and throughout the surrounding areas, including Kane, Lake, Will and DuPage Counties. With our experience concerning the “other side” of criminal proceedings, we have a complete understanding of how the system works, what tactics the prosecuting attorney may use to put you behind bars and what weaknesses to look for in physical evidence and witness testimony against you. Maintaining your freedom by preventing a criminal conviction is of the utmost importance to our entire team; we will work tirelessly to secure the best possible result for your unique case.
