Protecting Your Rights, Preserving Your Freedom


Criminal law is one of the more complicated and nuanced areas in the American judicial system. With its plethora of stages and courthouses you may find yourself at a bond hearing at 2650 S. California, a preliminary hearing at 5555 W. Grand, at Misdemanor Branch Court at 3150 W. Flournoy, or a motion date in Dupage. Police and prosecutors have a sizeable list of criminal offenses with which to choose from to enable an arrest. You need a criminal defense lawyer capable of defending you from all of them.
