Misdemeanors And Felonies Defense Attorney

Whether a misdemeanor or a felony, there is no such thing as a minor criminal charge. Aside from the obvious criminal penalties, there are many collateral consequences to a criminal conviction. You could lose your job and do irreparable harm to your standing in the community. For these and other reasons, it is essential to deal with criminal charges effectively and decisively.

At Alcorn Nelson LLC, our criminal defense practice involves representing clients charged with all types of felonies and misdemeanors.

Working Hard To Defend Our Clients Against Misdemeanors

In Illinois, misdemeanor charges are those punished by up to a year in jail or less. While these charges are not as serious as felony accusations, the penalties and other sanctions can wreak havoc on one's life. Our law firm takes on all types of misdemeanor allegations, including:

  • DUI
  • Possession of marijuana
  • Reckless driving
  • Assault and battery
  • Domestic violence

Depending on the number of offenses and other factors, certain misdemeanors can be charged as felonies.

Taking Tough Action In The Defense Of Felony Charges

A felony charge in Illinois is punishable by longer than a year in prison. Depending on the charge, a person facing felony charges could face life in prison or even the death penalty. Felony charges can include:

  • Sexual assault
  • Certain types of assault and battery
  • Drug possession and distribution
  • Murder

We recognize that for anyone facing felony charges, the stakes could not be higher. It is critical to understand that the government has the burden of proving every element of your case beyond a reasonable doubt. When you have an experienced defense lawyer on your side, that burden becomes even heavier. At Alcorn Nelson LLC, we prepare every case thoroughly to find the weaknesses in the government's case. Through diligence and skill, we have been able to achieve positive outcomes for people across the region.
