DuPage County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Clients in Wheaton, Naperville, and the Surrounding Areas

People who are facing criminal charges may feel overwhelmed and uncertain about what they can do to protect their rights. The fear of penalties such as a jail sentence or a criminal record can be daunting, and some may believe that if they cooperate with law enforcement, they will be able to resolve their cases without suffering serious consequences. However, saying or doing the wrong thing during an investigation or following an arrest could make it more difficult to defend against a conviction. That is why it is crucial for a person who has been arrested or charged with a crime to have an experienced criminal defense attorney by their side.

At Fotopoulos Law Office, we understand how stressful these situations can be, and we strive to provide our clients with strong, effective representation that will protect their rights. As a former judge, Attorney Fotopoulos understands the ways these cases are handled in criminal courts, and he is dedicated to advocating on behalf of clients and helping them resolve criminal matters successfully.

DuPage County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Those who have been arrested for a DuPage County crime are up against highly skilled prosecutors who only see a case the way they have been trained to—that every defendant is guilty. Thus, if you have been charged with a crime, you need an aggressive DuPage County lawyer who not only knows the law but is ready to stand up for your rights and fight for the best results possible.

Attorney Fotopoulos has extensive experience representing clients in all types of serious misdemeanor and felony cases, including:

  • DUI - Driving while under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, or other substances can result in multiple types of serious penalties. It may be possible to defend against DUI charges by challenging a police officer’s reasons for performing a traffic stop or showing that chemical blood alcohol tests or field sobriety tests were flawed.
  • Sexual assault and other sex crimes - Accusations of sexual offenses, including those related to child pornography, online solicitation of a minor, or child sexual abuse, can have severe consequences. Our experienced criminal defense lawyer can people accused of these offenses defend against convictions and take steps to protect their reputations.
  • Drug charges - Being charged with drug possession, distribution, or manufacturing can result in severe penalties. We can help clients defend against these charges through methods such as showing that evidence was obtained through illegal searches by police officers, or we can explore options for diversion programs that involve probation and drug treatment.
  • Weapons offenses - Illinois has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, and severe penalties may apply for offenses related to the illegal possession or sale of a weapon. We can fight to ensure that your rights are protected if you are facing criminal charges related to weapons.
  • Traffic violations - While tickets for speeding or other traffic offenses may seem minor, they can affect people in many ways, and multiple violations could result in a driver’s license suspension or revocation. Our firm can provide skilled representation to help reduce the severity of traffic tickets or even have them dismissed altogether.
  • Domestic violence cases - Accusations of abuse against spouses, children, or other family members are very serious, and the consequences can be life-altering. We understand the sensitive nature of these cases, and we will work diligently to protect our clients’ rights while helping them address issues related to child custody or orders of protection.
  • Assault and battery - Accusations that a person has inflicted injuries on someone else or threatened to do so can result in misdemeanor or felony charges. We can work to help defendants respond to these charges and defend against being convicted.

As a former judge, Mr. Fotopoulos has seen the tactics police and prosecutors use to prove their cases. Regardless of the nature of the charges, your past record, or the evidence against you, Fotopoulos Law Office is prepared to create a compelling defense to the case against you.
