Criminal Defense Attorney Serving McHenry & Lake Counties

There is no such thing as a “minor” criminal charge.  If you have been arrested or are under investigation for a crime it is time to seek the counsel and representation of an experienced criminal defense lawyer before that charge becomes a conviction with lifelong consequences for you and your family.

Our experienced team of Northern Illinois criminal defense attorneys at Donahue & Walsh, P.C. have a proven ability to go toe-to-toe with prosecutors and obtain the best possible outcome for our clients in felony, misdemeanor, and traffic cases.  You can rely on us to limit your exposure to harsh criminal penalties and protect your good name from the collateral consequences of having a criminal record.

Anything you say to the police can and will be used against you.  Speak to one of our criminal defense attorneys about your legal defense options. Contact us now for a free consultation.

Protecting Your Freedom, Your Good Name, And Your Future

A strong defense is a must. Criminal charges can result in a conviction that brings consequences such as jail time, fines, prison time, and a criminal record that will follow you around for the rest of your life. Being labeled a “criminal” can limit your employment opportunities, your housing opportunities, and even your educational opportunities.

Our criminal defense lawyers in McHenry & Lake counties defend people charged with or under investigation for criminal offenses such as:

  • DUI including drunk driving and driving under the influence of drugs
  • Traffic Offenses from driving while suspended or revoked to simple speeding or accident tickets
  • Theft offenses from retail theft to residential burglary
  • Sex offenses including sexual assault, child pornography, internet sex crimes, and lewd behavior
  • Violent crimes such as domestic battery, mob action, assault and murder

In addition to aggressively defending against felony and misdemeanor charges we also handle probation violation defense and defend people against damaging Orders of Protection. Our full-service criminal defense practice also provides assistance for people seeking to obtain a fresh start through the expungement of their criminal record.

Criminal Defense Tailored To Your Unique Situation

No two cases are exactly alike. Our extensive experience helps us quickly identify the crucial issues in a criminal case and devise a successful strategy for limiting the criminal and collateral consequences facing our clients.

You cannot afford anything less than a proven defense when everything you hold dear is on the line. Call 815-344-8860 anytime or contact us online to arrange a free, confidential consultation with a criminal defense lawyer.
