Champaign County Criminal Defense Attorney

Defense from Former Prosecutors and Law Enforcement Officers

When individuals are accused of crimes in Champaign County, Illinois, they can expect prosecutors to scour for every bit of "evidence" that can be used to portray the defendant as guilty. This means that even if an individual is wrongfully accused and charged, he or she has tough opponents to come up against in the courtroom.

For this reason, if you are accused of a crime, it is best to work with a criminal defense lawyer who fully understands how your opposition functions and how they strategize. This will allow you to have a stronger defense and to be better able to defend your rights.
