Our experienced team of Elgin 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 our  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.

Criminal Attorneys 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 Lake County criminal defense lawyers do their best to 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. We understand Palatine criminal law, as well as the law in Elgin and McHenry. Our full-service criminal defense practice also provides assistance for people seeking to obtain a fresh start through the expungement of their criminal record.
