A criminal arrest can impact both your family and your future. Besides exorbitant fines and possible forfeiture of property, you may be facing time in jail. It is therefore important to have on your side an attorney who understands criminal law, and who regularly defends those charged with crimes in court.

Attorney Who Fights Criminal Charges Brought Against You
When faced with driving under the influence (DUI) or other criminal charges, many people do not take the situation seriously enough. They think they can simply show up at court and deal with the State's attorney unassisted, an minimize the damage. While this might be a reasonable approach for a simple traffic ticket or disorderly conduct, DUI, drug crimes, sex crimes, domestic assault, and other serious offenses require a more sophisticated approach. Even on a first DUI charge, the stakes may be very high. Some clients simply cannot afford to risk losing their criminal cases, due to the many collateral consequences of a criminal conviction including jail time, fines, and loss of driver's license or privileges.
