Skokie Criminal Defense

Regardless of innocence or guilt, being charged with a crime is a stressful situation that can leave you with a feeling of uncertainty. In fact, out of fear and/or confusion, accused individuals sometimes waive their constitutional rights without even realizing it. For example, in the attempt to be helpful, some individuals volunteer information by directly communicating with police officers after being arrested. However, such communication may be used against them in court so long as it was not obtained in violation of their constitutional rights. As such, when facing a criminal charge, it is crucial that you speak with a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible following arrest. Attorney David L. Freidberg is a highly regarded Skokie Criminal Defense Attorney who understands how important it is to preserve your constitutional rights.

Skokie Criminal Defense Lawyer – Areas of Practice

Our law firm is specifically devoted to helping Skokie residents fight a variety of Illinois and federal crimes. By only focusing on criminal law, we are able to provide our clients with thorough and quality legal representation. We represent clients charged with crimes including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:

In addition to helping clients face the above-listed criminal charges, we help clients participate in Deferred Prosecution Programs if they qualify. Such programs allow Skokie individuals to resolve their criminal charges without having to serve significant jail time or pay substantial fines. Additionally, we help our clients seek expunction or sealing of prior criminal convictions. This is something that helps individuals overcome a criminal past, removing a scar that has plagued them for years. While not every individual will be eligible to have their Skokie criminal conviction expunged or sealed, we will investigate all possible ways to help you overcome past and present criminal matters.

Defending Your Skokie Criminal Charge

We approach all criminal charges by first determining if there are grounds for dismissal. As part of your conversations with us regarding the Illinois and/or federal criminal charge(s) against you, we will uncover key facts that may prove to be helpful in having your criminal charge(s) dismissed. There are a few ways in which a criminal charge may be dismissed. First, if a Skokie law enforcement official violated your constitutional rights in any way during the course of your arrest, detainment, and interrogation, there may be valid grounds to seek dismissal of the criminal charge(s) against you. Second, if you have been wrongfully accused of a crime you simply did not commit, we will search for evidence to prove your innocence, ultimately seeking dismissal of the criminal charge(s) against you. We may also be able to seek dismissal of your criminal charge if there is simply a lack of evidence to link you to the crime.

It is not always possible to have a criminal charge dismissed. In such cases, we will seek a resolution that will result in the minimum amount of punishment possible given the facts and circumstances of your Skokie criminal matter. Of course, the more serious the crime is, the greater the challenge may be to having your criminal charge reduced to a lesser offense. However, with the help of a qualified attorney, you are leaving your criminal matter in the hands of a strong advocate who utilizes all resources possible to provide clients with the legal representation that they need and deserve to overcome an Illinois and/or federal criminal charge.

While there are many excellent Skokie and Cook County Criminal Defense Attorneys, Mr. Freidberg is able to form a close attorney-client relationship with each client that enables his clients to be a part of the entire process from start to finish. Oftentimes, individuals are left in the dark as to the progress of a particular criminal matter they are involved in. For example, if you were charged with driving under the influence in Skokie, and your attorney is negotiating with the prosecutor to reduce the criminal charge against you, you would want to know how long it might be and what the outcome may be of any potential resolution. Mr. Freidberg does not ignore his clients’ questions and concerns regarding the progress of their criminal matters. While it is not always possible to provide each client with a daily update on a particular case, he works hard to ensure his clients are fully informed of the progress of their criminal case.

In addition to ensuring he has a strong attorney-client relationship with each and every client, Mr. Freidberg has the ability and experience to help multiple clients at any given moment. Some Skokie residents believe that the larger the law firm is, the better the legal representation will be. While this may be true in some circumstances, this certainly is not true in all circumstances involving criminal matters. In fact, many individuals appreciate the fact that they will be able to speak directly their attorney when calling to discuss a Skokie criminal matter, and not speaking with a different attorney or legal staff member each time they call. Mr. Freidberg understands just how important it is to ensure his clients are happy, and he will take no short cuts when it comes to providing his clients with superior legal representation. This approach to legal representation is precisely why he stands out from the rest.
