Defending the Accused in Galesburg We are Dedicated to Protecting Your Future.

Galesburg Criminal Defense Attorney

Over 100 Years of Combined Experience

Galesburg is located in Knox County, Illinois and as of the 2010 census there were 32,195 people living in the city. Throughout history Galesburg has been tied to the railroad industry. In the late 19th century Galesburg was one of the few cities of its size to be served by multiple railroads and multiple railroad depots. It wasn't until 1996 that Amtrak closed the old Santa Fe depot and consolidated all of its operations at the site of the former Burlington Northern Depot which fell under ownership of the BNSF Railway, the largest private employer in Galesburg.

Have you recently been arrested in Galesburg or a nearby community? At the Johnson Law Group, we have over 100 years of combined experience defending the residents of Galesburg and all throughout Knox County. If you or someone you are facing criminal charges, we urge you to contact a Galesburg criminal defense lawyer from our firm at once. You cannot take criminal accusations lightly, for a conviction can involve hefty fines, incarceration, community service, restitution, probation or parole, and not to mention a permanent criminal record.

Even if you are innocent of the charges against you, it is still possible to be convicted of a crime you didn't commit. In a day and age where wrongful convictions are a real threat, you don't want to trust your freedom and your future in the hands of an overwhelmed public defender that doesn't have the time to give your case the attention it needs.

As a client-focused criminal defense firm, we are invested in getting you off the hook and we measure our success by the number of clients whose charges we get dramatically reduced and the number that walk away as free citizens.

Why hire former prosecutors?

As former prosecutors, we know the criminal justice system inside and out. We can anticipate the prosecutor's moves and we know where to search for holes in their case. As seasoned negotiators, persuasive speakers and aggressive litigators, we are prepared to take on the most challenging cases.

Whether you've been arrested for drug possession, DUI, rape, embezzlement or homicide, we have the knowledge, tools and experience to aggressively defend you every step of the way. We stand by our clients at every stage of the process and make ourselves available 24/7 for help.
