Aggressive Criminal Defense In Cook County

Good people often get caught in "bad" situations leading to criminal charges. Criminal punishments exist to keep order in society. At the same time, constitutional rights in the face of criminal charges belong to every citizen and resident of the United States. Everyone's story and every set of circumstances is unique. At Herrera Law Group, we aim to give the accused a fair chance through a strong defense.

When the state of Illinois or any other government body brings a criminal case against an individual, there is a great power imbalance. The alleged wrongdoer is up against a prosecution team with unlimited resources. On the other side of this equation is the private citizen facing criminal charges. Negative consequences of a potential conviction may include:

  • Fines and penalties
  • Jail time or alternative punishments
  • A lasting criminal record
  • Damage to reputation and standing in the community
  • Related troubles such as career obstacles and family problems
