Aggressive Criminal Defense Representation

If you have been accused of a crime, it is easy to feel as though the entire world is against you. People may jump to conclusions about your involvement in an alleged crime, and prosecutors may pursue you relentlessly. In this environment, it is important that you have someone on your side who can protect your rights.

We understand how the Illinois legal system works. We know the local courts, and we know what to expect when one of our clients is accused of a crime.

We are also skilled in the area of military criminal defense. In fact, attorney Charles Schierer once served our country as a Navy JAG prosecutor, a role that gave him a close familiarity with all aspects of military trials. Today, he puts that experience to work for those who have been accused of committing crimes in the armed forces.
