Below are some of the different areas of practice that the Chicago criminal defense law firm can assist you with.
These are often extremely complex cases. They involve careful study and understanding of an overwhelming amount of documents and the finer points of the applicable laws. These are strengths that I bring to your defense if you’ve been charged with a financial crime.
Charges under this heading include corruption, bribery, domestic violence, assault and theft. I’ve been able to expertly defend clients who have been charged with these offenses.
If law enforcement conducts a search of your home or car without proper authorization, your rights have been violated. In my practice, I’ve successfully defended numerous clients who have been charged with a crime based on illegally obtained evidence and have had success in suppressing this evidence.
As you know, these crimes can carry stiff sentences in both state and federal court. In most instances, gun cases carry mandatory minimum prison terms. They’re cases that are often subject to violations of an offender’s rights. For many years now, I’ve worked hard to ensure that over-zealous prosecutions don’t result in wrongful convictions.
