Illinois Lawyer Referrals and Legal Guidance
Criminal Defense Lawyers in DuPage County
The DuPage County Criminal Courthouse is based in Wheaton and hears all sort of criminal matters ranging from minor traffic tickets all the way up to misdemeanors like retail theft and disorderly conduct and serious felonies like drug trafficking, armed robbery, criminal sexual abuse and murder.
Remember when looking for a criminal defense lawyer in Wheaton, Naperville, Elmhurst or anywhere in DuPage County, there is no such thing as the best lawyer, but rather you should find the best lawyer for your situation. In other words, if you are charged with soliciting a prostitute, you should make sure that the attorney you hire has defended a case like that. If you are accused of attempted murder, you give yourself the best chance for success by hiring a lawyer that has defended a lot of these cases in the past.
It’s also important, in our opinion, to hire a lawyer who is at the Wheaton court house. There are 19 criminal Judges in DuPage County. The prosecutors appear before these Judge’s on a daily basis. We think it’s a good idea to make sure your defense attorney is also there on a daily basis, especially if you have a misdemeanor charge – possibility of 364 days in jail – or a felony charge –possibility of years in jail. Hiring an attorney for DuPage criminal charges that follows our recommendations doesn’t guarantee you a result, but in general it gives you the best chance for success. It just makes sense that if your lawyer knows the prosecutors as well as the tendencies of the Judge that you are giving yourself a better opportunity to get the result that you want.
Typically a criminal lawyer will charge a flat fee for his/her services. The amount you will be charged varies from lawyer to lawyer and is also dependent on the amount you are charged. The lawyers you will find on our site aren’t free, but they almost always will give a free consultation to someone who is facing criminal charges.
