Battery Crimes in Illinois
Representation from a Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney
Although assault and battery are often grouped together in the criminal
defense world, battery is actually quite different. A person can be charged
with battery when they intentionally cause bodily harm to another individual.
This can manifest itself in a number of different ways, which may affect
the severity of the penalties. Aggravated battery is a more serious form
of the same crime.
Any of the following acts may be considered aggravated battery:
- Use of a deadly weapon
- Knowing that the harmed individual is pregnant
- Concealed identity during the offense
- Knowing that the harmed person is 60 years or older
- Is on public property during the incident
If you have been charged with battery, turn to the Law Offices of Mitch
Furman. I consistently strive to achieve the best for my clients and have
over 15 years of legal experience. With a strong understanding of Illinois
law, you don’t have to turn to any other criminal defense attorney
Protecting Your Future & Your Rights
A battery conviction can damage your relationships, your employment, and
your future plans. Not only does it create a social stigma, it also carries
harsh penalties that are difficult to recover from. Imprisonment, fines,
and community service are all common consequences if the court finds you
guilty. This is why your choice of representation is imperative.
Should you choose to retain my firm, much of the success of your case rests
on my shoulders. I am fully equipped to shoulder this responsibility and
be the advocate you need. My firm has a solid reputation for being honest
and straightforward, something many attorneys sacrifice to put on a good
face for their clients. At the Law Offices of Mitch Furman, you can expect
authenticity throughout the entirety of your case.
I am passionate about defending your rights, so why go another day without
