Criminal Defense

Criminal charges are extremely serious, and the penalties that accompany criminal offenses can be severe and threaten your liberty and livelihood. If you are facing criminal charges in DeKalb, Illinois or surrounding communities, a proactive, aggressive defense of your rights needs to start right away. Contact us today.

At the DeKalb, Illinois law office of Burns Cronauer Brown, we have been defending and vindicating the rights of people for more than 35 years. We do this by pursuing a dismissal or reduction of the charges against you in the most direct way possible, or trial – we challenge the evidence.

A criminal conviction can mean:

  • Expensive Court Costs and Fines
  • Potential Jail Time
  • Higher Insurance Premiums
  • Driver’s License Revocation
  • National Database Registries
  • Limited Work Options

If you are a college student and have been arrested and charged with a crime, a conviction may impact your employment opportunities after graduation. Act now.

Our firm will work hard to help you avoid these severe penalties by doing whatever we can – checking police reports, examining issues of probable cause, and checking the evidence – in order to make sure that your rights are protected in every way possible.

We have successfully defended clients through multiple jury trials as well as negotiated cases down due to pre-trial hearings that expose weaknesses in the evidence.

For questions about your arrest or the procedures that were used in your case, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at the Sycamore law office of Burns Cronauer Brown today.
