Facing a felony charge?
If you become informed that you are being investigated for the commission of a felony, or you are charged with the commission of a felony, it is vital to secure the assistance of a Chicago felony defense lawyer to protect your rights. A felony is a serious crime with a penalty of 1 year or more in prison, although in some cases probation may be possible.

Schmiege understands the felony process, law enforcement and prosecutorial methods and will explore all avenues of defense in your issue. The firm also serves the areas of Cicero, Berwyn and Evanston.
