Computer Crimes
These crimes include hacking and unauthorized access to data and programs, fraud, identity theft, credit card fraud, phishing, and spamming. These offenses range from misdemeanors to felonies.

Domestic Violence
False accusations are relatively common when it comes to domestic violence. If you have been wrongfully charged with abuse of a family or household member, an attorney can help.

Drug Crimes 
Our team can handle cases involving possession, trafficking, cultivation, and even prescription drug crimes. These offenses are often felonies and can result in prison sentences spanning years.

Whether this is your first-time DUI or you are facing a felony DUI conviction, a lawyer can fight for a dismissal or reduction of your charges. You may have failed a breath test, blood test, or a field sobriety test, but we have the knowledge and insight to fight the results.

Illinois is extremely strict regarding expungement. You can have criminal charges expunged from you record under certain circumstances, but convictions can only be sealed on rare occasions.

Grand Theft
A person is generally guilty of grand theft when they steal property with a total value of more than $300. Stealing property from the person of another can also be considered grand theft, even if it is of lesser value.

Hate Crimes
Any kind of criminal offense committed against another person because of their race, ethnicity, nation of origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or social standing is considered to be a hate crime and is a felony offense.

Although it is not as serious of an offense as murder is, manslaughter can still result in a lengthy prison sentence. Get immediate legal representation if you have been accused of causing someone’s death through reckless or negligent behavior.

As the most serious crime a person can commit against another, murder charges can be overwhelming and frightening. Our attorneys are experienced with such severe cases and have what it takes to defend you from a life sentence.

Music Festival Arrests
Chicago is home to Lollapalooza, one of the nation’s largest and most anticipated annual music festivals. Every year, dozens of individuals may be arrested for various crimes. Wrongful arrests are also possible due to confusion, mistaken identity, and other complications.

Sex Crimes
From indecent exposure to prostitution, child molestation to criminal sexual assault, sex crimes almost always result in jail sentences and high fines. Convicted individuals will also face lifetime sex offender registration, limiting where they can live and work and preventing interaction with children.

White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes include bribery, embezzlement, fraud, forgery, insider trading, and RICO violations. Don’t let false accusations ruin your reputation and land you in prison for years. Speak with a defense attorney today to discuss your options.
