Chicago Violent Crime Defense Lawyer
I defend against violent crime charges of all types, including:
- Domestic violence
- Assault and battery
- Battery to police officers
- Resisting arrest
- Armed robbery
- Manslaughter and murder
Make no mistake: Your future is on the line if you have been accused of a violent crime. The most serious charges can result in long-term incarceration. Even a lesser assault charge can potentially lead to fines and incarceration, and it will result in a mark on your record that will make it difficult to pursue employment. Domestic violence charges also come with protective orders that must be dealt with. I am Jonathan Feldman. As your Chicago violent crime defense attorney, I will fight to defend you in negotiation or trial as necessary.
There Are Two Sides To Every Story
Every story has two sides, and part of a criminal defense lawyer’s role is to make certain that your side is heard. For example, it is not uncommon for someone to be accused of domestic violence, assault and battery or another violent crime charge even though he or she was simply engaged in self-defense. I will listen to your side of the story and design a defense strategy to protect you from the impact of a violent crime conviction.
Were Your Civil Rights Violated?
I can represent people who were accused of battery to a police officer or any other violent crime involving an alleged attack against law enforcement. If you believe the police overstepped their bounds and caused you harm in the process, you may have a civil rights claim against the police department. These are challenging cases, but I have the strength and perseverance to take on law enforcement and stand up for your constitutional rights.
