Areas of Law Description
The Law Offices of Raymond G. Wigell, Ltd, Criminal Attorney Defense Team has successfully represented persons charged with the following offenses in State and Federal Courts:
- Criminal Defense
Regardless of the allegations a good criminal defense attorney will not give up hope. When the evidence is strong we have to work harder and look closer at all aspects of your case. Only after a complete review of the facts and circumstances and the law can a criminal defense lawyer properly advise the client.
- Felony and Misdemeanor
When someone is charged with a misdemeanor, the maximum penalty is 364 days in jail. When someone is charged with a felony the minimum prison time is one year or more in prison. Different classes of misdemeanors and felonies have different minimum and maximum sentences.
- Juvenile Crime
Our law firm goal is not just to keep your child out of jail, but to help the juvenile understand that if they do things right the arrest can be a learning experience and will not scar them. We also work to keep your child from having a permanent record that could follow him or her around for life.
- Federal Crimes
If you are convicted of a federal crime, it's usually not a matter of if you're going to jail, but for how long. The federal government doesn't choose to charge in cases that are low level or weak. Federal prosecutors tend to not bring charges, rather than charge someone with a probational offense. Most federal criminal law prosecutions have traditionally been concerned with complicated financial transactions that cross state lines or organized crime.
- White Collar Crimes
Our law firm provide experienced defense to individuals who have been charged with, or are under investigation for, white collar crimes. Many white collar crimes are felonies with mandatory jail sentences. In addition to criminal charges, the accused individual also faces the social stigma of criminal accusations and damage to their professional reputation.
Embezzlement charges can be brought against employees in virtually any kind of occupation. The lawyers from our law firm provide experienced criminal defense to clients ranging from convenience store clerks and restaurant workers to high level executives and bankers. No matter what your occupation may be, you can count on our firm to vigorously represent your rights.
For most clients, fraud allegations threaten damage to their personal and professional lives. Our Attorneys defends individuals who are facing a variety of criminal fraud charges.
- Sex Crimes
Accusation of sexual assault stirs up strong emotions. The public frenzy to punish someone often leads to prosecution based on questionable evidence. Unfortunately, even weak evidence can lead to a conviction and to the very serious penalties imposed for sex crimes, such as mandatory prison sentences and lifetime registration as a sex offender.
- Child Pornography
Child pornography charges our defense team has handled include such as Possession of child pornography on computer hard drive, Production of child porn for the Internet, Interstate sexual exploitation of a child, Sexual exploitation of minors and Solicitation of a minor or child enticement. Our law firm provides determined defense services for juveniles charged with possession or production of child porn.
- Internet Crimes
Many defendants in Internet crime cases don't realize the serious legal consequences of their actions. What your teenaged son may consider a prank "harmlessly hacking into another computer or file sharing” could trigger a criminal investigation. What you may consider a perfectly legal, private matter "looking at pornographic images" could result in criminal charges of child pornography.
- Drug Crimes
Drug charges are very serious. There are very few misdemeanor drug charges, most involving very small amounts of marijuana. Almost all other drug charges are felony offenses. Conviction of a felony means the offender will spend at least a year in jail if found guilty, and often much longer. A felony conviction can also ruin your prospects for future employment.
- Weapons and Gun Law
Unlawful use of a weapon (UUW) is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in prison and a $2,500 fine. You could be charged with unlawful use of a weapon for carrying a concealed weapon or for carrying a gun improperly in your vehicle. In Illinois, you can't have a gun in your glove compartment. The gun must be stored in an inaccessible area of the vehicle and must be unloaded.
- DUI and Commercial Driver's License
Drunk driving case is, from a legal standpoint, extremely complicated. A drunk driving charge can also result in serious penalties, including jail time, fines, and suspension of your driver's license if you plead guilty or are found guilty by a jury. Our DUI lawyers understand that drunk driving is serious business.
- Domestic Violence
If convicted of domestic violence or domestic battery, the consequences can be very serious. You will be looking at jail time, anger management classes, fines, separation orders, plus a criminal conviction that will be on your record forever and can be viewed by prospective employers, loan companies, and insurance companies. A domestic battery or violence conviction would also bar you from keeping a firearm or going hunting.
