Aggressive Defense Of Your Rights In Criminal Cases
Even the most minor traffic citation or criminal charge can have a lasting impact on your life. If you have received a citation for a misdemeanor or were arrested and charged, you need a knowledgeable lawyer on your side who will protect your rights and future.
At the Edwardsville office of Buckley & Buckley Law, P.C., our firm understands how overwhelming and scary criminal cases can be. We are committed to helping those facing criminal violations or charges seek justice. Our attorneys understand how criminal cases are handled in Illinois and take the time to explain the process as well as your rights. Whenever possible, we strive to have the charges and consequences reduced or dismissed completely. You can trust us to look out for you throughout the entirety of your case.
We Handle Criminal Cases With Confidence
Our firm focuses on handling a wide range of misdemeanor criminal cases, including:
- Traffic cases, including speeding, running a red light, texting while driving and more
- Drug charges, including possession
- Driving under the influence (DUI/drunk driving)
- Disorderly conduct
In addition to the cases listed above, we also handle domestic violence cases. These can often be the precursor to divorce or child custody modifications, and you need to be protected in both the criminal matter and the potential family law-related complications of the case.
Consequences Of A Citation Or Conviction
Many people believe that if they are arrested or cited for a criminal violation, they should just pay the ticket or accept the consequences and move on. This is a mistake. Any type of criminal matter, regardless of how minor it may seem, can have an impact on your life. Not only can you potentially have a blemish on your criminal record and, potentially, your driving record, but you may be facing jail time, monetary fines, the loss of your driver’s license, the loss of custody of your kids and more. Our firm is here to fight for your rights and minimize any impact a criminal situation may have on your life.
