Are you facing felony charges? As a Will County criminal defense attorney, I can help you!
Being charged with any criminal offense in Illinois is a serious matter. However, when you’re charged with a felony the stakes are much higher.
Felonies are crimes of a serious nature that carry longer sentences and higher penalties. Generally, a felony conviction can result in a prison term of more than one year and significant fines. Depending on the felony, it can even carry a mandatory minimum sentence.
What types of felony charges do you handle?
ALL types of felony charges, including:
- Attempted murder
- Reckless homicide
- Home invasion
- Aggravated battery
- Vehicular hijacking
- Unlawful sale of firearms
- Hate crimes.
These are just a few examples of felony charges and not an exhaustive list.
What should I do if I’m arrested for a felony offense?
Don’t make statements to police or prosecutors, and instead hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Prosecutors focus their efforts on felonies. In particular, they want to be seen as being tough on crime with respect to felonies involving drugs and/or violence.
If you’ve been charged with a felony, it is not wise to go through your case without legal representation. For more than a decade I have been protecting the rights of those charged with all types of crimes, including felonies. I know what is at stake.
Why should you hire me to defend you?
I combine experience on both sides of the criminal justice system and a single – minded tenacity focused on securing the best outcome for all clients. If you’ve been charged with a felony, it’s important that your lawyer fights to preserve your legal innocence.
After learning about a client’s felony charge, I will want to learn about the strength of the prosecution’s case, determine whether a client’s rights were violated (such as through illegal search and seizure), understand the evidence that may exist (such as witness statements) and the strength of such evidence, and find out whether the police and prosecution properly applied the law to the facts of a case.
Based upon that research, various motions may be prudent, such as motions to exclude evidence. This work is painstaking, but it is imperative to make sure that a client’s best interests are properly represented.
