Lawyers in South Chicago Heights and Cook County

Criminal Defense Attorney Carlos H. Davalos defends cases where the arrest originates in South Chicago Heights.  The South Chicago Heights Police Station is located at 185 W. Sauk Trail, South Chicago Heights, IL 60411.  If you have been arrested and taken into custody, the police will first transfer you here.  When you arrive at the South Chicago Heights Police Station, you will be separated from your family and friends. Because you will be under investigation, the police will prohibit any family and friends from visiting you or speaking with you during this time, for police to maintain control of the investigation.  The only person who can be permitted to enter and speak with you apart from police at this time is a licensed attorney.

It is imperative that you be aware of all your rights at this time.  For example, whether you are a U.S. citizen or an undocumented person, you have the right both to silence and an attorney.  You have the full authority to terminate your interview with police at any time and remain silent.  if police indicate that anything you say can be used against you in a court of law, assume that they will, because they oftentimes do.  Therefore, if police ask you to give a statement, it is imperative that you advise the South Chicago Heights detectives that you will not be giving a statement without an lawyer of your own choosing present.  Be advised that the State’s Attorney is not your attorney and will not be working in your interests.  Also be advised that you can back out of requests to silence and an attorney, so please do not do that even if you are afraid that not speaking to police will lead to worse consequences.  You must remain silent until an attorney of your choosing arrives at the police station to advise you..

Do not be afraid or intimidated to tell the South Chicago Heights police you want to exercise your rights. At this early period of the investigation, the only person who will have the power to exercise your rights against the detectives is YOU!  Should you exercise your rights to silence and an attorney, the police will have no choice but to respect your request.

From here, you will be assigned a public defender, or, you and your family could opt to retain a lawyer to arrive at the South Chicago Heights police station and advocate on your behalf and represent you against the detectives. So, even though family and friends will not be allowed to speak with you, a licensed attorney can and the police will have no choice upon arrival but to terminate any investigative proceedings and permit the attorney to speak with you.  In the event that charges are filed or citations issued against you, your court appearance will be at the courthouse in Markham, located at 16501 Kedzie Ave., Markham, IL 60428.
