Criminal Defense

In Illinois, the Compiled Statutes and Vehicle Code are filled with various offenses that local law enforcement officials can charge you with in a criminal investigation or traffic stop.  As former prosecutors, our team has a great deal of experience understanding the elements of misdemeanor and felony offenses that are alleged in Illinois.  Below is a list of some of the most commonly charged crimes:

  • Battery
  • Domestic Battery
  • Assault
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Possession of Cannabis
  • Possession of Controlled Substances
  • Delivery of Cannabis/Controlled Substances
  • Retail Theft
  • Theft
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Resisting/Obstructing a Peace Officer
  • Violent Crimes
  • All other Misdemeanor and/or Felony Offenses

The list above is certainly not a complete list of offenses that are at law enforcement’s disposal, but our team is prepared to defend our clients on those charges listed above as well as any another misdemeanor or felony offense.

The stakes are often high when it comes to criminal cases.  A criminal conviction can affect your livelihood, personal relationships, finances, and even your freedom.  Penalties can range in severity from Court Supervision or Probation to county jail or penitentiary time.  That is why it is critical to seek the advice and counsel of an experienced criminal defense team as soon as possible to protect your rights and assert your defenses if you have been charged with a crime.
