Working for You and Your Rights
GUN CHARGES

If you possess a gun without a permit, this is a criminal offense in Illinois & you could face steep fines & possible jail time.

DRUG CRIMES

The results of a conviction on any drug charge will show on your criminal record. Contact a drug attorney before it’s too late.

SEX CRIMES

Sex crimes carry a stigma that makes your future life difficult. We work hard to prevent charges from being filed.

When the police take advantage of their authority by harming an individual during the arrest process, justice must be done.

A federal charge can be very intimidating. It’s crucial that you gain the help of a skilled Chicago defense attorney in these matters.

A murder is a felony offense. Do not engage in conversation with law enforcement prior to getting legal representation.
