A Former Cook County States Attorney Member

g c

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.

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, misdemeanor DUI offenses, state and federal drug charges, battery, domestic violence and domestic battery cases, and retail theft charges.
