Strong Defense for Your Assault and Battery Charges


We work hard to learn all the facts involved in your assault or battery case in order to determine if your charge should have been for a lesser offense, like disorderly conduct, or if it involved self defense or true mutual combat. Our goal is to get your charge dismissed - we will fight to obtain the best possible outcome for your case. We will examine the facts surrounding the circumstances of your case, challenge alleged victim and witness testimonies, and utilize any other evidence to support your case, including video surveillance.


Have you been charged with domestic battery?


Don’t defend yourself; contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you. Illinois is aggressive when handling domestic battery charges, and there are often times very serious consequences involved, if convicted, you need the help of an attorney who knows how to defend you under these circumstances. Often times domestic violence charges are involved when other family law issues arise. These situations can be especially sensitive and heated. For people who want to maintain their relationships with their families and loved ones, we help by providing access to anger management, domestic violence classes, family counseling, and work toward getting your charge dismissed or reduced.
