Criminal Defense Focused On Protecting Your Rights

If you have been arrested for suspicion of a criminal violation, facing the Illinois criminal justice system on your own can seem terrifying. A conviction could remain on your record and limit your job and housing opportunities unless you obtain a pardon or qualify for record expungement. But you do not have to contend with criminal charges on your own. Call Almanza Law in Chicago right away for a free consultation to learn how an experienced criminal defense lawyer can help. Almanza Law understands how frightening your situation may seem at the moment. We will take the time to listen to your side of the story. We will help you understand the laws and what legal options you have going forward.

Law enforcement officers and prosecutors in Cook County have been known to overstep the boundaries of their legal authority and violate your rights when upholding the law. If you have been arrested for suspicion of drug and narcotic violations, weapons charges, homicide, sex crimes, white collar offenses or drunk driving (DUI) in Chicago or anywhere in Cook County, you have a right to due process and equal treatment. If a police officer uses excessive force, uses discriminatory language or fails to inform you of your rights, Almanza Law is not afraid to stand up and ensure justice is served.

Even after an arrest, it is not too late to defend yourself from the steep penalties of a criminal conviction.

A conviction can result in a record that could create difficulties in your ability to keep or find employment, prevent you from securing college or other loans and can influence where you and your family may live. If you are facing charges for criminal violations or have been served a protection order, speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney right away.
