A felony is a serious crime with a penalty of 1 year or more in prison, although in some cases probation may be possible. With many felony convictions on your record, however, it is likely that probation is not possible. It is important to have a seasoned felony crimes attorney who is skilled in investigation, weighing and presenting evidence, DNA analysis, crime scene preservation, accident reconstruction, and the use of expert witnesses, among other things.
Our criminal defense team knows each case is unique and will answer all questions fully to keep a client fully informed of progress. Fighting for your freedom is first priority.
Whether the charge is armed robbery, vehicular manslaughter, a drug crime or a sex crime, the Illinois justice system and procedures can be very intimidating to an individual; a felony crimes attorney from our firm can fight aggressively for your acquittal. You can also find the rigorous defense you deserve at our firm if you have been charged with being in contempt of court, using fictitious ID, committing perjury, or impersonating a peace officer.
While negotiation is an important skill for a criminal defense lawyer during plea bargaining, being a skilled trial lawyer is imperative. A prosecutor who knows your criminal defense lawyer to be aggressive in the courtroom is very often more amenable to a fair resolution.
