YOUR CHICAGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER
These are cases involving family or household members. The charges include domestic battery, telephone harassment, assault, and criminal damage to property. If a person is found guilty or pleads guilty to domestic battery a conviction goes on that person’s record, and can never be expunged. In addition, if you are convicted of one of these crimes, you must participate in twenty-six weeks of domestic violence counseling.
Below you will see some of the cases that our law firm has won after forcing the State’s Attorney to go to trial. In many other cases we have been successful at showing either the State’s Attorney or the Judge our evidence and avoiding trial altogether. In those cases we save our clients the time and money required for a trial.
