Lake County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Experienced Criminal Attorneys Defending Your Rights

Being arrested and charged with a crime is likely one of the most anxiety-inducing events you will ever face. There is a high degree of uncertainty about what will happen to you next. With any offense, there is an all-too-real chance that you will be sent to prison. If you were taken to jail during your arrest, you may well be quite alarmed about the possibility of going back. Whether you are facing misdemeanor charges like simple drug possession or a major felony like murder, there is a lot at stake. Having a criminal record can close doors. It is critical to work with an experienced and committed criminal defense lawyer.

Gurnee Criminal Defense Attorney

Lawyer for DUI/OWI Serving Illinois and Wisconsin

Getting arrested for drunk driving can be embarrassing, but getting convicted on DUI charges can interfere with your future opportunities. While you may have been made to feel as if the case against you is overwhelming, there are a wide variety of defenses available that it may take the skill of an attorney to spot.

While most drunk driving cases are charged at the misdemeanor level, there is also a chance that you may face felony charges for a repeat DUI offense or due to aggravating circumstances. It is important to take this situation very seriously and involve a lawyer as soon as possible.

Assault and Domestic Violence

The only real difference between assault and domestic violence is the relationship between the alleged victim and the accused offender. If the alleged victim was a stranger or acquaintance, you are likely facing assault charges. However, if the alleged victim is someone you have even a loose domestic or familial relationship with - including your platonic roommates and family members of your child's other parent - then you may be facing the more serious charge of domestic violence.

Each of these offenses can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony. The specific changes will depend on the severity of harm to the victim, whether you have prior arrests or convictions, and whether a weapon was involved. In any event, being labeled a violent criminal can take opportunities away in the future. We will fight to defend your rights and your future.

Defense Lawyers for Murder Charges

Murder is likely the most serious offense a person can be charged with. Although there are different levels of homicide charges, from first-degree premeditated murder down to unintentional manslaughter, each can carry prolonged terms of imprisonment and leave you with a major felony on your record. We always go into these cases prepared to fight for you in a trial.

Drug Charges

Drug charges are extraordinarily common - and most are felonies. Our Wisconsin clients can even find themselves charged with drug trafficking rather than possession simply for bringing marijuana that was legally purchased in Illinois back home.

It is easier than you may have realized to be charged with crimes like drug delivery for simple acts like sharing a common supply of a drug with your friends. In many cases, we are able to negotiate to have these charges reduced, or we may be able to advocate for drug treatment and probation instead of traditional sentencing.

Sex Crimes

Sex crimes are among the most serious types of offenses. Becoming a sex offender can be a life-ruining event. Whether you have been accused of prostitution or sexual assault, you need an attorney who is experienced in working with defendants who have been charged with sex crimes in order to give yourself the best opportunity to minimize the impact of this case on your life.
