We never forget that the government needs to prove every element of the charges against you beyond a reasonable doubt. Much of our work involves testing the facts that the prosecution intends to use against you, and finding the weaknesses in the government’s theory on the case. Our ability to use this evidence in your favor can lead to dismissal of the case or a significant reduction in your exposure to punishment.
In some situations, we’ll focus on facts that could support a claim of self-defense or provocation. In others, we can point to conflicting witness statements to support a mistaken identity defense. If we can’t expect to shake the prosecution away from a strong position, our ability to focus on sentencing issues can still lead to a positive result, especially if you have no prior record.
Our lawyers represent clients in Chicago, Cook County and communities around the state across the full range of violent offenses. Our objective is to build the right defense under the facts of the case that protects your interests to the greatest extent possible.
Whether you’re charged with simple assault, attempted murder or unlawful use of a weapon, our attorneys use our experience to minimize your exposure to punishment.
