We wrote the chapters on Defenses, Arrests and Investigatory Stops, and Search and Seizure!

As a Skokie criminal and DUI defense attorney with over 25 years experience throughout the Chicago area, I handle criminal, DUI, traffic tickets, and a wide variety of criminal felonies and misdemeanors.

As an experienced attorney, I can review your case to determine your best possible defense. Did police have probable cause to arrest you? Did they have legal grounds for the search? In some cases, an attorney can ask the court to suppress the evidence of an illegal search. Did you make incriminating statements without Miranda rights or after you clearly asked for an attorney? Again, an attorney can petition the court to suppress those statements. Most criminal offenses require the state to prove you guilty of each element of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. I can probe for weaknesses in the state’s case.

Even if the evidence against you is overwhelming, an attorney who is respected in the courthouse may be able to negotiate a better plea agreement than you could on your own.
