Criminal Lawyers in DuPage County

Illinois Criminal Law Firm

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

Zealous Defense to Mitigate the Impact of Criminal Charges on Your Future

While this is certainly not a comprehensive list of the formal and informal consequences of a misdemeanor or felony conviction, the key point is that you cannot afford to settle for less than a well-regarded criminal defense law firm with exhaustive experience. Our DuPage criminal defense lawyers at Ramsell & Kunowski, L.L.C. have collectively handled in excess of 16,000 criminal cases. Our law firm has been involved in high profile cases covered extensively by major media sources like CBS, FOX, ABC, The New York Times and many other major media outlets. While our law firm has built a reputation for providing exemplary criminal defense to high profile clients, we routinely represent individuals from all walks of life.

Although the criminal defense strategy we utilize will depend on the specific facts and circumstances of your case, we are relentless in exposing violations of our clients’ constitutional rights and improper law enforcement procedures while laying siege to the government’s case. While our reputation and success often allows us to obtain favorable plea offers from prosecutors, we are committed to the principle that the best defense is a good offense. We work with an extensive network of private investigators, forensics experts, mental health professionals and others, so we can develop the most effective strategy, which requires extensive investigation, preparation and legal research. Whether we are challenging constitutional violations, exposing sloppy handling or testing of forensic evidence or challenging the unreliability of a government witness, we are dauntless in the pursuit of the best possible outcome for our clients.

Assert Your Constitutional Rights and Speak to a Top DuPage County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Although it is understandable that you might be nervous if you are arrested, your constitutional rights against self-incrimination and to have an attorney present during questioning constitute powerful weapons. It is imperative that you immediately, unequivocally and repeatedly assert that you want and attorney in the room to protect your rights. Illinois jails and prisons are filled with people who thought they could talk their way out of criminal charges. Law enforcement officers are skilled and experienced in conducting interrogations, and their focus is on getting you to provide incriminating information not uncovering the truth.

Contact our experienced DuPage criminal defense attorneys, so we can protect you from overzealous law enforcement tactics and violations of your rights. We invite you to call us today at 630-256-8001 or contact us via email to schedule your free consultation in our conveniently located office in Naperville, or we can even come to you if you are in custody. We also have offices in Wheaton and in St. Charles or Rolling Meadows available by appointment.
