Have the police read your rights to you or a family member? Have you been indicted or arrested for a felony or misdemeanor? Have you been served with a Search Warrant at your home or office? Are you being questioned in a criminal investigation? Do local authorities consider you a “person of interest”?

If so, CALL ME TODAY!

For many years the bulk of my practice as a criminal defense trial attorney has been dedicated to defending clients accused of committing serious crimes in the State of Illinois. While experienced attorneys here in the Chicago area vividly recall when the statute book for criminal offenses was merely a fraction of what it is now, the Illinois legislature continues to add new offenses every year, some brought on by changing technology.

Defending against each type of offense (new and old) requires a special approach or strategy. As an experienced defense attorney, I am familiar with all these approaches and continue to stay on top of new strategies as new crimes are enacted.
Remember, in the United States of America you have the right to counsel. Should you have questions about your offense that you do not find answered on this website, do not hesitate to contact me for a free initial consultation.

False Convictions

While the media does not focus on such stories regularly, there are also countless instances of false convictions. Many of these are discussed at The Innocence Project website.
