Welcome to the Law Offices of James A. McCarron, Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer
I have been a Chicago criminal defense lawyer for more than 30 years. If you are visiting this web page, then the chances are high that you or someone you love has become entangled in this country's criminal justice system. Let me assure you that you have come to the right place.
If you call now, I promise that I can and will help you, whether your case is a simple traffic ticket or a murder case. Please allow me to be blunt: No matter what type of case you have, having a specialized criminal defense attorney such as myself will greatly increase your chances of success and the overall outcome of your case. Even a minor traffic ticket can have dire consequences without the help of an attorney who knows what he is doing. If you take a conviction, that could result in your driver's license becoming suspended either now or down the road. No one can promise what will happen in the future, so why would you risk bigger problems later when you might be able to fix things now? I am one of the very best at what I do. Don't get lost in the system!
Convictions for minor traffic violations are just the tip of the iceberg. If you are convicted of driving without a driver's license, jail time becomes a possibility. In addition, even the possession of a small amount of marijuana can result in your property being taken by the Government, including your car and anything inside of it. More people reside in U.S. jails than any other country in the world. Over 2 million incarcerated and penalties continue to escalate. What was once a $35 fine can now be a permanent conviction with a year or more in jail and a fine of up to $250,000.
Over the years political demands for law and order and safer streets have led to increased mandatory sentencing, longer jail terms, and ridiculously larger fines. Not recognizing the changes in the Criminal Defense system, many accused individuals go it alone or retain inexpensive and usually ineffective legal counsel, creating more problems for themselves like large fines and even jail sentences.
It is in your best interest to retain a Chicago criminal defense lawyer who is experienced and well known in Criminal Defense. Misdemeanor charges carry a possible jail sentence, probation, or both. Additionally, you could face a permanent criminal record. Below are the possible penalties you are faced with for misdemeanors:
