Defending Clients Against All Violence-Related Charges

Our criminal defense attorneys represent clients charged with any crime involving accusations of violence. Under Illinois criminal statutes, violence includes actions that cause bodily harm, involve the use of dangerous or deadly weapons, or threaten physical force. Common criminal charges include the following:

  • Domestic violence (any alleged violence involving household members)
  • Assault and aggravated assault
  • Battery and aggravated battery
  • Armed robbery and armed violence
  • Attempted murder
  • Murder and reckless homicide

If you have been charged with any violent crime, you will be facing serious consequences, including imprisonment, fines and a criminal record that can damage your future employment prospects.

Providing a Full Response to Domestic Violence Accusations

Accusations of domestic violence are a special category, often involving both criminal law and family law. Whether or not you have been charged with the crime of domestic violence, your accuser may decide to seek an order for protection - also known as a restraining order - from the family court.

You have a right to a hearing before any domestic violence protective order becomes permanent. This hearing is separate from a criminal trial. Our firm's family law attorney is also a former criminal prosecutor, so we have the well-rounded experience to represent you in all matters based on domestic violence accusations.

Don't hesitate to contact us to get an experienced advocate on your side as you face charges of domestic violence or any other violent crime.
