Many people have found themselves facing criminal charges in Chicago. In all criminal cases, the accused is considered innocent in the eyes of the law until — and only if –sufficient evidence is provided to prove otherwise. The attorney at the Law Office of Stephen L Richards can help you mount a felony defense if you are accused of any of a variety of different crimes, as well as protect your rights as you maneuver through the criminal process.
Our lawyers can help with several different charges, including murder, drug charges and white collar crimes, among others. We will work with you from the beginning to determine the course of action that best fits your case and priorities in order to seek the best outcome for your particular situation. We have worked on many high-profile cases and can help both adults and juveniles.
Experienced criminal law attorneys can help their clients in a variety of different ways. First, we can explain to you the options that are available to you. For a case that goes to trial, we play an active role in jury selection. If the prosecution has strong evidence against you, we can seek reduced charges. Additionally, we work to exclude evidence as necessary, which could potentially weaken the case against you.
In 25 years of practicing law in Chicago and surrounding areas, we have helped many people mount a successful felony defense. Regardless of the charges, we can likely work to protect your rights.
