Urbana Criminal Defense Lawyer

Knowledgeable Attorneys with Decades of Experience

At Johnson Law Group, our clients are able to have the peace of mind of knowing that they are being represented by highly experienced lawyers. Our lead attorney has more than 20 years of experience in criminal law. Furthermore, our legal team has almost a century of combined experience.

In addition to having spent a considerable number of years in their practice area, our Urbana criminal defense attorneys also provide a competitive edge in that they have previous experience as prosecutors and police officers. This gives them valuable insight into how arrests are made and charges are prosecuted, as well as how their clients can best protect themselves from the opposition.

Whether we are handling charges for drug crimes or sex crimes, our method is to do immediate "damage control" so that we can fully assess the situation and quickly identify our clients' needs. Prosecutors will usually collect "evidence" that they plan to try to use against the defendant. It is important that we do full analysis of the facts surrounding the arrest and full analysis of the evidence so that we can identify any weaknesses in the prosecutor's case. There are many situations in which the evidence is flawed.

For example, in DUI cases, there are many human and technical errors that can lead to breath test and blood test results. Whether you are dealing with theft charges, white collar crime charges or charges for murder, our skilled attorneys know the best strategies for helping you fight conviction.
