Chicago Robbery Defense Attorney
Theft Crime Lawyer in Chicago
Have you been arrested for robbery? It is important to immediately contact
an attorney who can help you address this legal matter. You may be at
risk of facing felony charges and may face extremely severe penalties
if you are convicted. Your first and only line of defense against imprisonment
and other harsh consequences will be your lawyer. Law enforcement and
the prosecuting attorney will be using their seemingly limitless resources
to investigate your case, gather evidence and put you behind bars. Make
sure you have a competent trial attorney who can counter these efforts
to the fullest extent of the law – all while protecting your Constitutional
rights and keeping you informed every step of the way.
As a Chicago criminal lawyer with more than 15 years of experience, I can
offer you the level of legal counsel you need in the face of your robbery
charges, arrest or investigation. I welcome you to contact my offices
at your earliest convenience to discuss how I can help you.
Different Types of Robbery
There are three primary classifications of robbery in Illinois. A defendant
in Chicago may therefore face criminal charges under one of the three
topics listed below:
Robbery – taking another's property by force or threats, from the victim's
Aggravated robbery is committing robbery by suggesting or simulating a
weapon or firearm.
Armed robbery is committing robbery with an actual firearm or other dangerous weapon.
Challenging Robbery Charges
Depending on the type of robbery charges you face, you may be at risk of
facing up to 7 to 60 years in prison. Make sure your rights and interests
are fully protected in this matter by involving an experienced attorney
as soon as possible. Even in the investigatory phase of a case, having
legal counsel can help limit the evidence that is gathered against you
and can even help you avoid formal robbery charges.
