Serious Penalties Require Experienced Legal Counsel

Criminal charges of any kind – whether a felony, misdemeanor, DUI, or traffic offense – can have serious and life-changing consequences. When you are facing criminal charges, you cannot afford to take the situation lightly. Penalties for criminal charges vary greatly depending on whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, as well as the severity of the offense.

Felony convictions result in prison time of more than a year, hefty fines, probation, parole, and other implications.  A felony conviction can even affect your ability to obtain a loan, vote, get a job, or drive a car.

Criminal Charges Impact on Your Life

Even misdemeanor charges can have a significant impact on your life. For instance, DUI charges can result in the revocation of driving privileges, which can, in turn, impact your ability to get to work. In some cases, DUI charges can also negatively impact family law matters such as child visitation arrangements.

Get Swift Legal Representation

Swift legal representation is crucial to launching a strong criminal defense. A criminal investigation begins shortly after arrest, when the police and prosecution begin collecting evidence. Moreover, criminal court proceedings often take place within a few hours or days after arrest. Police often seek interrogation immediately after arrest, and an experienced Chicago criminal defense attorney can guide you through these frightening and overwhelming situations.
