Criminal Charges in Illinois

When law enforcement has a crime to solve, they often cast a wide net. They pull in suspects - people who fit a profile, those who have been convicted of similar or previous offenses, and people who were close to the victim. These innocent people are then questioned, sometimes to the point that they become frightened, confused, and distraught. Though they may not be in custody yet, that can quickly change if their stressed responses arouse even the slightest amount of suspicion. Even more concerning is that this arrest can happen, even if there is no real evidence against them.

Once an arrest has been made, law enforcement has their target. They search for any and every possible link that connects their suspect to the crime, regardless of whether or not the defendant is actually guilty. Prosecutors are on board at this point as well, working diligently to build a case. Weeks, sometimes months or years, are spent trying to convict this one person. Needless to say, law enforcement and prosecutors will often overlook any evidence that would exonerate their suspect. After all, they have already invested time and energy into this one suspect - a person they have already presumed as guilty. They want their case closed, sometimes even at the expense of an innocent person's freedom.

We will meticulously review your case, looking for that doubt to protect your innocence. We will safeguard your rights and aggressively protect your future. We offer the skills you need and deserve.
