Aggressive Defense Against Sex Crimes Charges

Any criminal arrest is scary and has the potential to damage your future. Sex crime allegations bring this to a whole new level. Even being suspected of a sex crime taints your reputation. Once you're arrested for an alleged sex offense, everything you now say or do is treated with suspicion.

As an attorney with more than 20 years of experience handling high-stakes criminal cases, I know that the court of public opinion is just as harsh as the Illinois criminal justice system. I will do what it takes to preserve your rights and reputation under the U.S. Constitution — the institution that guarantees ALL people are innocent until proven otherwise.

Experienced Defense On All Fronts

I got into criminal law because I'm invested in fairness. Sex crimes often receive a lot of media attention, so preserving that fairness can be difficult during the criminal process. Sometimes laws and constitutional rights are twisted or even outright ignored by police or prosecutors in their pursuit to appease the public's opinion. I won't counsel you to accept a terrible plea bargain just to "make this go away." It won't just go away if you accept terrible terms without question. I believe in your right to a fair trial, and work tirelessly to ensure that happens.

As your lawyer, I work hard to ensure the best outcome for you. I know how to use the power of the law to defend your rights and reputation against allegations of:

  • Criminal sexual assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Rape/date rape
  • Online solicitation of a minor
  • Possession of child pornography

Exposing Faulty Evidence To Protect Your Rights

There should be no doubt that the prosecution will have what they consider solid evidence to secure your conviction. However, such evidence isn't often as foolproof as it seems. Mistakes can be made in gathering or analyzing fingerprints, DNA samples and other "scientific" proof of your guilt. Witness testimony needs to be carefully questioned. More often than you might think, prosecutors can draw the wrong conclusions based on faulty evidence.

It's my job as your defense lawyer to expose these inconsistencies and fight for your rights. I have invested a great deal of time and energy learning the science, so I know when it is misused or misrepresented by the prosecution, and I know how to fight it.
