Cook County Defense Attorneys Fighting Firearm Charges Throughout Chicagoland
While the nation’s gun laws — and especially those in places like Chicago — continue to make headlines and be the subject of political debate, one thing is for certain: Prosecutors will seize nearly every opportunity to throw the book at someone charged with a firearm-related offense.
Taking on a prosecutor bent on winning a conviction takes a lawyer who knows how prosecutors — and judges — think. It takes a lawyer who can use this experience to build an effective strategy even in the face of serious criminal charges.
Our founding attorney and consultant, Colleen McSweeney Moore, spent years as a prosecutor and circuit court judge in Cook County, seeing literally thousands of cases from the eyes of the prosecution and judge’s chair. This experience and her passion for helping people give our clients the quality representation they need when facing gun charges and other serious criminal consequences in Illinois.
You Come With Questions. We’ll Come With A Plan.
Sometimes gun charges arise by themselves. In many other cases, however, they come about in relation to other allegations of violent crime offenses. These can range from a simple traffic stop to drunk driving charges to a home search following an arrest on suspicion of drug possession or distribution.
Many of these cases are prosecuted as felonies, meaning that lengthy prison sentences are almost always on the table. No less serious is the effect that a criminal conviction can have on many other aspects of a person’s life, including:
- Employment opportunities
- Housing options
- Custody of children
Our attorneys take an offensive approach to criminal defense. With significant trial experience, they undertake careful preparation of every case and are undeterred by those that are best resolved at trial. We know that there is no such thing as a low-stakes firearm case, and our goal in every case is to help our clients avoid the serious and devastating consequences of being convicted.
The Skill To Take On Assault And Battery Charges
Violent crimes are some of the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in the Illinois criminal justice system. Not all charges, however, arise out of a physical violent act. Assault charges can arise when an individual simply believes he or she is under the threat of physical harm.
What does this mean for the accused? You may have simply thought that you were in a heated argument with a friend, neighbor or stranger. That person took things differently and decided to take legal action against you.
A Strong Defense Lawyer For Violent Crime Charges
You do not have to back down when the evidence seems stacked against you. Let our law firm help.
What Defense Options Are Available For Me?
The circumstances that surrounded the violent incident are not always black and white. Unfortunately, whoever decided to press charges is often automatically viewed as the victim of a crime, even if the law says you, the accused, are innocent until proven guilty.
We know that many assault and battery cases are more complex than they seem. Did you, the accused, feel you were in danger of harm as well? Was a weapon involved or not? Was the weapon intended to be used or did it just happen to be in your possession at the time? These are examples of important details that need to be brought up as they can dramatically influence your case.
