We make use of extensive resources in preparing our clients' cases, including working with former law enforcement officers to investigate the evidence and use our independent analysis to build an effective strategy for defense. When you first meet with us for your free, confidential consultation, we take the time to review your case and determine whether it is "beatable."

Your Peoria criminal defense attorney and the case manager assigned to you also can immediately begin looking for ways to help you avoid the serious consequences you face.

How Our Peoria Criminal Attorneys Fight for Our Clients

At the outset of the case, we understand you are most likely already feeling like the odds are against you since the police have already been working on their investigation and turned the matter over to the prosecutor. We work to level the playing field by identifying the prosecutor assigned to your case and working to negotiate a favorable outcome so that you can put this situation behind you as quickly as possible. In the event that a case dismissal or reduction in the charges is not possible, however, we will not hesitate to fight for you in a full jury trial. With our experience as police officers and prosecutors, we know what law enforcement officers are supposed to do, and what they're not supposed to do, and we use this insight to find weaknesses in the case that can be exploited to your advantage.
