If you've been accused of a misdemeanor, we will work aggressively to win your case or reduce your sentence.

Depending on the frequency and severity of the offense, driving under the influence could lead to very serious consequences resulting in the loss of your license or jail time. We handle more DUI cases than any other firm in Lake County, and our experience will guide and defend you throughout the legal process to ensure you the very best possible outcome.

Drug offenses come with serious ramifications resulting in high fines and jail time. These types of offenses may have more serious consequences if the drugs led to the death or serious injury of another person. Regardless of the circumstances, we recognize the seriousness of your case and will prepare thoroughly to ensure you receive a winning outcome for your drug-related offense.

Sexual crimes come with dire consequences in most cases. You may end up on the sex offender registry and you may face fines, jail time, and certain license restrictions. We'll fight for your rights to ensure the court treats you fairly.
