We are dedicated to offering our clients the full benefit of our combined years of experience and training to defend them against prosecution. Our team is ready to defend you against a variety of charges.
- Violent Crimes
Violent crimes are offenses which are violent in nature or involve threats, force or a weapon in the commission of the crime. For example, robbery is a violent theft crime that involves using force or threats to take another's property. Assault is a violent crime that involves attempting or threatening violence or bodily injury on another person.
- Assault and Battery Charges
Assault & battery are very serious charges that carry a number of life-altering penalties. Prosecutors, judges and police officers do not take assault and battery lightly, and will do everything in their power to ensure a person who commits assault or battery is brought to justice.
- Hate Crimes
Hate crimes are very serious charges that will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Prosecutors and law enforcement authorities have absolutely no tolerance for people accused of hate crimes and will make it their personal mission to ensure the defendant faces harsh penalties in criminal court.
- Domestic Violence
Domestic violence allegations can lead to a number of consequences that could affect your life for many years to come. In addition to legal penalties, a person convicted of domestic violence could also lose the right to see their children and even be issued a restraining order prohibiting them from making contact or coming within a certain distance of their loved ones.
Murder is defined as the criminal act of intentionally taking another person's life. Under Illinois law, murder charges are classified as either first degree murder or second degree murder.
Manslaughter refers to the act of unlawfully taking the life of another human being, but unlike murder, the act is committed without premeditation or malice. Although the alleged offense can arise in a variety of situation.
- Hit and Run
If you are involved in an accident and you allegedly flee the scene, you could be charged with hit and run. This is a very serious charge that could result in severe punishments and consequences that could change your life forever. If you have been arrested or if you have received a citation or summons in the mail for a hit and run, it is imperative that you immediately contact an aggressive attorney to protect.
- Unlawful Use of a Weapon
Unlawful use of a weapon in Chicago is most often charged as a felony, but can be charged as a misdemeanor in some circumstances. Referred to as UUW in Illinois, the law deals with unlawful discharge of a firearm, unauthorized sale or distribution, and possession of a weapon or ammunition without an FOID.
- Traffic Tickets
The most common way people have contact with our legal system in the Chicago area involves traffic tickets. If so, it is in your best interest to speak with an experienced Illinois traffic ticket lawyer as soon as possible. Many people do not consider traffic violations to be serious, believing that only a fine is involved.
- DUI Defense
Driving under the influence, commonly referred to as DUI in Illinois, involves driving or being in actual physical control of a vehicle after consuming any amount of alcohol which impairs the driver. Impairment is often broadly defined by Courts, and is often a point of contention for the skilled Illinois DUI lawyer.
- Drug Crimes
If you've been arrested on drug charges in Illinois, a criminal lawyer experienced in drug defense in Chicago area courts is needed right away. Crimes involving drugs such as Cannabis, Heroin, Ecstasy and other drugs are some of the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in the country. Prosecutors, judges, and police officers take these offenses very seriously, and so should you.
- Drug Possessions
If you are found to be in possession of an illegal drug or controlled substance, you could be arrested and charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense. The type of offense charged is dependent upon the type of drug and the quantity of that drug found. Possession of a small amount of marijuana, for example, is much less serious than possession of crack cocaine or unlawful possession of a prescription narcotic.
- Possession with Intent to Sell
Possession with intent to deliver or sell is a charge that is generally determined by the weight of the drug found, although in some cases even possession of a small amount of a controlled substance can lead to a possession with intent to sell charge. Certain drug paraphernalia items, such as scales, may also be used as evidence of intent.
- Prescription Drug Crimes
Drug crimes are not limited to controlled substances or illegal narcotics, such as marijuana or heroin; an individual can also be charged with a crime for prescription drug offenses. Each year, thousands of people across the state receive valid prescriptions from their doctors for painkillers and psychiatric medicines.
- Sex Crimes
A sexual criminal offense is generally thought of as rape, but can include any unlawful act that is sexual in nature, including sexual conduct that does not involve actual penetration. In some cases the age of the victim, and therefore the inability to legally consent, is the only thing that makes a sexual contact illegal.
- Prostitution Charges

Our team has more than 100 years of combined legal experience and is ready to get to work on your behalf to help you avoid the serious consequences of a prostitution conviction.
- Public Indecency
If you or someone you know is facing criminal charges for public indecency, do not hesitate to retain effective legal counsel to help you challenge the alleged offense and protect your record and freedoms. We can provide you with the aggressive defense you need.
- Theft Crimes
Theft is defined as the unlawful act of taking or using another person's property without consent. Threatening or deceiving the owner of a property to gain possession is also a theft crime under Illinois law. Theft charges can also be brought against a person who accepts property he or she knows to be stolen.
- Auto Theft
Auto theft is the criminal act of stealing or using another person's vehicle without consent. Such theft charges can also be brought against a person who uses threats or deception to steal another person's car. When a person uses a weapon, force or violence to steal a vehicle it is referred to as the separate offense of carjacking, or as it is more formally known under Illinois law, vehicular hijacking.
- Retail Theft
Shoplifting, called retail theft in Illinois, is a serious criminal offense that can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony with a lasting impact. Penalties may include imprisonment, significant fines, probation and a criminal record. An experienced Illinois criminal defense attorney familiar with retail theft defense can help you fight these charges, challenge the evidence and give you options you may not have even considered.
At Fagan, Fagan & Davis, we are committed to defending people throughout the Chicago area who have been charged with robbery. In addition to basic robbery charges, a powerful attorney from our team can also offer effective criminal defense services.
- Armed Robbery
Robbery is a felony crime in which the defendant takes or attempts to take the property of another from their person or presence, and this charge is increased if a weapon was involved in the commission of the theft. Under Illinois law, a person could be charged with armed robbery if, during the commission of the alleged theft, the defendant used or threatened to use a dangerous weapon.
- Identity Theft
This criminal charge occurs when one person deliberately uses another person's personal identification information for any reason. The identification can be in the form of a driver's license, Social Security number, address, or a government-issued form of identification.
Embezzlement is defined as fraudulently or dishonestly taking money or other property from another person or company where relationship of trust existed and served to facilitate the theft. In many cases, the person charged with misappropriating funds for their own personal gain is a manager, accountant, trustee or other person in a position within a company or organization with access to the group's financials.
- White Collar Crimes
The term "white collar crime" is used to refer to any type of offense involving a fraudulent activity performed by a business or government professional. It is most closely tied with any type of crime committed by a person of high social or professional standing in his or her occupation.
- Internet Crimes
Crimes involving the use of the internet and computer are usually extremely complex and will always require the help of an attorney. Any type of unlawful activity that uses the internet to complete the transaction, such as identity theft, wire fraud, sex crimes and other white collar crimes, is considered to be an internet crime.
Burglary is always charged as a felony offense under Illinois law, and in the case of Residential Burglary, probation is not an option. You need an aggressive Illinois criminal attorney to defend you in court. Burglary involves unlawfully trespassing on someone's property with the intention of committing a crime within.
- Felony Criminal Defense
Felony crimes involve more severe penalties than misdemeanors, and involve prison sentences of one year or longer. If you are convicted, you significant jail time, large fines and loss of privileges and rights people take for granted every day. Certain offenses also result in a loss of driving privileges, registration as a sex offender, and can damage your reputation for life.
- Misdemeanor Defense
The degree of punishment for criminal misdemeanors vary based on the unique circumstances involved. Under Illinois criminal law, charges of retail theft, possession of cannabis, assault, simple battery, aggravated speeding, reckless driving or DUI, are typically charged as misdemeanor offenses in their most simple forms.
