Criminal Lawyers in DuPage County
Vigilantly Defending Your Constitutional Rights in Illinois
Whether you have been arrested for a misdemeanor like a first time DUI offense or a felony drug trafficking charge, the decisions you make can have a dramatic impact on your future. Even if you are only charged with a misdemeanor, a criminal conviction could result in penalties that include incarceration, substantial fines, probation, a criminal record and other adverse consequences.
However, these formal judicially imposed consequences do not accurately depict the full impact of a criminal conviction, which might include the following:
- Loss of eligibility for certain immigration privileges;
- Deportation or exclusion from re-entry;
- Ineligibility for certain occupational and professional licenses;
- Academic discipline including denied admission, suspension and expulsion;
- Denial of housing by potential landlords;
- Impaired ability to obtain promotions or to take advantage of certain employment opportunities
