Personal Injury Litigation - If you suffer personal injuries as a result of a traffic accident, a slip and fall accident, or as a result of the intentional conduct of another, you are entitled to fair compensation for your injuries. In many instances, particularly with regard to traffic accident or slip and fall injuries, the potential defendant is insured over this type of loss.
Criminal Defense - If you are arrested and charged with the commission of a crime, your personal liberty may be at risk. If you are not indigent, you will be required to either represent yourself or obtain a private attorney. Illinois criminal law and criminal procedure are complex laws that govern the criminal justice process. Illinois laws are generally classified, in order of severity, as felonies, misdemeanors, or petty offenses.
DUI/DWI - The loss of life and costs associated with alcohol related traffic accidents is a nationwide problem. Illinois DUI law attempts to both educate the driving public and remove dangerous drivers from the roadways. If you are arrested and charged with DUI, it can have significant effects on your life.
Traffic Violations - Simple traffic tickets can have a negative impact on your life, and your pocketbook. Certain serious violations can result in the suspension of your driving privileges.
