Chicago has its share of serious crime cases. Law enforcement in the area is dedicated to reducing the crime rate and has organized task forces specifically devoted to finding and convicting those who commit violent crimes in the area. If you have been caught in the net of the system and are facing a violent crime charge, this is a serious legal problem that requires immediate action. An experienced Chicago violent crime defense lawyer from the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege provides the dedicated and aggressive legal representation needed for those facing the penalties that a conviction would bring.
When your freedom is important, you want to ensure that your legal defender is a highly skilled trial attorney who can present a compelling case to a jury. Not all attorneys have this skill; it takes more than legal knowledge when entering a courtroom. The jury is going to be hearing technical information, and often become confused. How the case resolves has much to do with a jury, and this ability cannot be underestimated when dealing with dangerous violent crime charges. If you are convicted, you could spend many years in state prison, even if you didn't commit the crime. The prosecution considers they have enough evidence to convict you already - you need someone who will relentlessly fight for your side and support your through the process.
If you are under investigation for a serious violent crime, do not answer questions from investigators without an attorney from the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege to protect your rights. An investigation invariably leads to an arrest in a short amount of time, and you need legal protection before answering any questions from law enforcement or other investigators. Protect your rights and your future and contact the firm at once.
