Criminal and Family Law -- Located in Champaign Illinois

 
 
 

My practice of law focuses primarily on criminal defense and family law.


CRIMINAL DEFENSE

I represent clients who are charged with misdemeanors, felonies, as well as traffic offenses including DUI.  It is my goal to provide the best possible representation for each client's unique situation.  I have noticed in the past  20 plus years, there has been a shift in the attitude of the government in the prosecution of these types of cases.  Often, the focus of the government has been on punishment rather than the interests of justice. My goal is to assist clients through each stage of the criminal court process, ensuring that their best interests are met.

DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE & DRIVING ON A SUSPENDED LICENSE 

Champaign County is different then other places when it comes to DUI. Please give me a call to discuss your case.  

PERSONAL INJURY: Yes, I will get involved in personal injury cases. Please feel free to call to discuss your case. There will often be no attorney fees unless we collect.  

 

FAMILY LAW
 
I represent clients in all areas of family law.  I understand the difficulties families face during divorce and child custody proceedings.  I never lose sight of the best interests of the children involved. I also have experience in juvenile law, both in abuse and neglect and delinquency cases.  As society becomes more mobile and interests change, it is important from the beginning to have an attorney familiar with the processes.
