Chicago Murder Defense Attorney

About Chicago Murder Charges

The most serious crime that one can be charged with is that of taking the life of another. Murder charges can result in the most serious penalties, including life in prison or death. As a consequence, you need to retain counsel who will stand up for you and aggressively fight to get you acquitted or get the charges dismissed. The Chicago violent crime attorneys of the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege have many years combined experience in litigating criminal matters. The firm has tried cases in Illinois jurisdictions such as Will County, Kane County and many others. The firm is a boutique practice that maintains an intimate and accessible atmosphere with its clients, while defending them in the most serious crimes. If you have been charged in a murder, contact the law firm of the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege to schedule an initial interview.

When confronted with a charge of murder, one must obtain an attorney who is familiar with the procedures of the court, the rules of evidence and criminal procedure. The attorneys at the firm will investigate all the circumstances of the arrest. They will examine how the arrest was made, how evidence was collected and whether correct procedure was followed. They will interview witnesses and determine what the evidence actually shows, not just what the police say it shows. Thus an effective defense will be constructed that will challenge shoddy police work and violations of procedure. An acquittal or dismissal is sought first and always, but if it is not possible, a plea agreement will be fought for to mitigate the penalties in the case.
