Chicago Violent Crime Attorney
How a Criminal Defense Firm Can Help
Searching for an attorney for a violent crime case in Chicago? There are
a number of crimes that are considered "violent crimes" and
state lawmakers have increased the penalties for these crimes over the years.
If you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with one of these crimes,
the penalties will be severe. Not only will you face extensive prison
time, you will also be labeled a "convicted felon"—which
will restrict your life radically and make it difficult to find a place
to work, live, or even to get a loan. When you are facing these risks,
you deserve the professional counsel and representation offered by the
Law Offices of Mitch Furman.
Types of Violent Crimes My Firm Handles
I, Attorney Mitch Furman, assist my clients in defending such cases, and
take them on with a full dedication to helping them reach a better outcome.
Depending upon the situation, this may mean fighting for a "not guilty"
verdict, a reduced charge, or a means of alternative sentencing.
Some of the types of violent crimes I can assist you with include:
- Gang crimes
- Weapons charges
Providing Assistance for Felony Charges
The procedure regarding felony offenses in our state follows a complex
path. Once you are caught in the criminal justice system, you can expect
that the case will proceed in a certain way. As a criminal lawyer with
more than a decade of experience, I understand this process and know that a violent crime, like any felony
charge, can often be successfully challenged.
We are ready to fight on your behalf to avoid or reduce the following:
- A lengthy prison sentence
- Fines of as much as $25,000
- Restricted employment opportunities
In certain circumstances, you may be able to avoid these consequences by
negotiating different types of sentencing. For example, you may have the
opportunity to seek alternative sentencing and state-approved programs
that are geared towards rehabilitation rather than punishment. Get in
touch with my firm to discuss the opportunities that may be available
in your case.

It is extremely urgent that you have a strong Chicago violent crime lawyer
to handle your case; without one, you stand a strong chance of being convicted—even
if you are not guilty. Innocence is not enough, as getting charged with
a violent crime offense indicates that the prosecution believes they have
enough evidence to convict you.
To help you achieve the best possible results, I need to start developing your
criminal defense immediately after your arrest. Learn more about my defense services for
