Trusted Defense Counsel in Naperville

While some offenses might not be as serious as others, there is no such thing as a minor criminal offense in Illinois. Certain crimes may not seem like a particularly big deal, but a criminal conviction can have a significant impact on the rest of your life. Most offenses carry penalties that could include fines, periods of probation, community service, and time in jail or prison. In addition, being convicted means that you will also have a mark on your permanent criminal record, which means you could have trouble finding a good job or an affordable place to live or qualifying for various educational programs.

The consequences associated with a conviction make it extremely important to have an attorney on your side who can help you avoid being convicted if possible. At McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C., we are ready and willing to assist you in defending against charges related to:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI): A DUI conviction can have far-reaching and expensive consequences, so it is crucial to work with an attorney with experience in this area of the law. Our team has helped many clients successfully defend against DUI charges, and we are prepared to go to work on your behalf.
  • Traffic violations: Our attorneys can help you fight a ticket for a moving violation, such as running a red light or operating a vehicle without liability insurance. We also handle traffic-related criminal charges, including aggravated speeding and reckless driving.
  • Orders of protection: Judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officials in Illinois take an extremely hard line against those who are accused of violating orders of protection or other domestic violence-related offenses. Our team understands that there are always at least two sides to every story, and we will ensure that you have the chance to tell yours.
  • Drug crimes: At our firm, we know that charges of drug possession or possession with intent to deliver can be complicated and difficult to defend against. We will do everything we can to help you avoid a conviction and to keep your record clean.
  • Theft and property crimes: Being charged with theft, burglary, vandalism, or other property crimes can ruin your reputation, even if you have been wrongfully accused. Our team will assist you in building a strong defense against all types of property-related criminal charges.
  • Violent crimes: If you are facing charges for assault, robbery, or weapons violations, you need an experienced lawyer who is not afraid to stand up and fight for you. We have helped many clients clear their names when facing such charges, and we will work to obtain a favorable outcome for you as well.

Building Your Best Defense

At McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C., we know that building a successful defense begins with a comprehensive review of the circumstances.

We will also sit down with you to discuss what happened so that we can develop a strategy for protecting your best interests.

Depending on the situation, your best option might be for us to negotiate an arrangement with prosecutors to get your charges reduced or dismissed. However, we are fully prepared to continue fighting on your behalf all the way to trial if necessary. You can depend on us to remain at your side every step of the way.
