Chicago criminal charges are serious accusations that, upon conviction, can result in:


  • permanent marks on a criminal record
  • mandatory community service
  • sizable fines
  • loss of driving privileges and/or voting rights
  • loss of freedom (due to either jail time or work furlough assignments)

Criminal convictions can affect a person’s reputation, personal relationships, and future career and educational opportunities. Because of the severe penalties that so often accompany a criminal conviction, it is essential to obtain representation from a highly trained, well-respected criminal defense attorney from the start.


Public defenders are usually overburdened and often don’t have enough time to spend on each case they handle. Defendants can ensure that they achieve the best possible outcome to a case by securing the services of a legal team that has a proven track record of legal prowess, professionalism and success.


If you are facing criminal charges in Chicago, and are seeking an attorney who will fight aggressively and tirelessly on your behalf, contact the Law Offices of Andrew M. Weisberg. Mr. Weisberg has extensive experience handling a wide array of criminal charges.


Types of Criminal Charges in Chicago


Criminal charges can be filed at the state or federal level, and, in most cases, the sentencing will be harsher if an individual has a prior criminal record. Common types of criminal charges may include (but aren’t limited to):


In 2008, nearly four times as many people in Chicago were convicted of property crimes, rather than violent crimes. The most common criminal charges to secure conviction included larceny, theft, burglary and car theft.


Despite this fact, however, Chicago convicts over two times more individuals (than most states in the U.S.) of violent crimes, such as murder, rape and aggravated assault.


Building Your Criminal Defense Case


A seasoned criminal defense lawyer will work hard to protect your constitutional rights by:


  • Developing a personalized attorney-client relationship with you and your family
  • Working with specialists, such as psychiatrists, forensic scientists or ballistics experts to support your claims when expert testimony is required in official legal proceedings
  • Thoroughly examining all evidence against you (including opposing witness testimonies) to find fallacies or inconsistencies in it (thereby weakening the prosecution and bolstering your defense)
  • Investigating any new evidence (including other witness testimonies) to support your claims
  • Representing you at every stage of the legal process, including bail hearings, trial proceedings and parole hearings

If you or a loved one has been accused of a crime in Chicago, contact the Law Offices of Andrew M. Weisberg for experienced and dedicated representation in your case. All initial consultations are free and confidential.
