Belleville Criminal Defense Law Firm

Defending You Against Assault, Battery and Domestic Violence Charges

Accusations of assault and battery – especially domestic violence – are some of the most heated situations imaginable.

So many arrests and charges begin as misunderstandings or are the result of arguments that suddenly turn physical. An arrest is almost certain once the police are called and the government will often pursue charges in order to “make a statement.”

Being charged with a crime in Illinois can be an intimidating experience, but it does not have to end in jail time and a lifetime record as a criminal. For more than 20 years, firm founder Madelyn Daley has fought on the behalf of Southern Illinois clients. Our lawyers focus on criminal defense exclusively because we are passionate about standing up for people when the government accuses them of criminal activity. And if you or a loved one are facing criminal charges, we want to put that experience and reputation for results to use in your case.

Charges Have Been Filed. Get An Aggressive Lawyer On Your Side

A conviction of assault, battery or domestic violence can impact your life in more ways than you might think.

Most people think first – and only – about the fines and jail time that are associated with a criminal conviction. Consequences can reach much further than that. A conviction on charges of domestic violence can impact your rights as a parent, and a record of any of these crimes can impact your ability to own a gun or even get a job.

Our experience gives us the ability to quickly see holes in the government’s case. We carefully analyze the testimony of eyewitnesses and the statements of the accuser. If the government has made any mistakes in its work, we will immediately find a way to use these to benefit clients.
