Defending Your Rights And Freedom

Attorney (Abogado) Carlos H. Davalos is a former member of the Cook County State's Attorney's Office in Chicago, what is now the second largest State's Attorney's Office in the nation.

During his time at the State's Attorney's Office, Mr. Davalos was assigned to the Felony Narcotics Division at 26th and California in Chicago, where he dealt directly with the prosecuting of individuals facing major felony offenses with respect to the possession and intent to deliver controlled substances, including cocaine and cannibis.  Working with the government, Attorney Davalos oversaw litigation against motions filed by the defense, as well as jury trials where the defense declared innocence against all charges.

A prison sentence for narcotics traffickers was oftentimes the result of the Prosecution's efforts during Mr. Davalos' tenure, but Attorney Davalos also observed first-hand the defense efforts on behalf of those accused.  Specifically, Attorney Davalos learned not only the government tactics in dealing with these defenses, but also the kinds of defense techniques that could work on behalf of clients.  The defense attorneys of 26th St. gained the respect of Attorney Davalos in their willingness to litigate and fight cases, even when the odds of winning were low.

Now knowing what the state knows, attorney Davalos aggressively puts the knowledge he gained in the felony division to use in defense of his clients, defending people accused of all types of felony and misdemeanor crimes, including aggravated DUI offenses, state and federal drug charges, battery, domestic violence and domestic battery cases, and retail theft charges.

Simply put, the Law Offices of Carlos H. Davalos remains your best option in times of crisis when confronting a DUI, Felony, or serious misdemeanor case.

We Aim To Win, For You

Focusing exclusively on criminal defense, attorney Carlos Davalos has a complete understanding of Illinois criminal procedures and statutes. We have, and regularly continue, to represent clients charged with major felonies in the class 2, 1, and X range within Cook, DuPage, Will and Lake Counties. We defend juveniles and minors accused of major felonies in juvenile courts throughout Illinois. Make no mistake; the defense of major felony offenses is our strong suit.

What we do for you: We put the pieces together faster, anticipate the options available, and can have strategies laid out for you months in advance of actual court dates. We don't need to react to what the state is doing, because we know everything they can, and oftentimes will, do. We set the pace.

Your role: Our firm strongly believes that an informed and involved client is a critical component of the defense. Thus, you will not be shut out. Clients work hand in hand with Mr. Davalos throughout their entire case, and not with paralegals or assistants oblivious to the issues pertinent in your matter. Our goal remains the same at all times: Beat The Case!

Misdemeanor Traffic Violations

Attorney Davalos has always endeavored to defend everybody, and that includes those persons charged with misdemeanor traffic violations and infractions. In these cases, we may not always be talking about prison, but we are talking about people's driver's licenses, their driving and criminal records, and protecting one's ability to work.

Before showing up to court and openly admitting guilt, stop...think...and speak with an attorney first. Let us succinctly explain what the options are. Your first consultation is free of charge, and you can then decide for yourself whether Mr. Davalos' advice is worth taking.

Note that we also defend holders of commercial driver's licenses (CDLs). We defend truck drivers charged with moving violations in counties that do not negotiate with CDL holders, while still delivering results. The accolades we have earned speak for themselves.
