Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense Lawyers in Kankakee, Illinois

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, or if you are only under criminal investigation, you need an aggressive criminal defense lawyer. Statements you make at any phase of a criminal prosecution can be critical to your defense. If you are convicted of a crime, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, you face potentially serious consequences, including:

  • Establishment of a permanent criminal record
  • Large fines
  • Court costs
  • Lengthy probation
  • House arrest
  • Jail or prison time

Some criminal convictions, such as drunk driving (DUI), result in further penalties, such as loss of driver’s license, court-ordered alcohol education and treatment, and impoundment of your vehicle.

Our experienced criminal defense attorneys advise men and women charged with all types of criminal violations, including:

  • Drunk driving (DUI)
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Violent crimes like assault and battery
  • Drug offenses
  • Murder and other homicide crimes
  • Rape and other sex offenses

We represent clients at every stage of a criminal matter, from investigation and arrest to arraignment and trial. Our goal is always acquittal, but we are skilled negotiators and will advise you if we believe a plea bargain to be in your best interests. We can also handle criminal appeals.

Our clients come from throughout Illinois, including Kankakee County, Iroquois County and Will County, and the communities of Kankakee, Bradley, Bourbonnais, Momence, Manteno, Peotone, Herscher, Watseka, Monee and Joliet.

If you have been arrested or you are under investigation, you need an attorney immediately. Contact the criminal defense attorneys at Scott N. Sliwinski, P.C., to schedule a free consultation. Evening and weekend hours are available by appointment. We accept MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
