Kane County Criminal Law Attorney
Criminal Lawyer Serving Kane, DuPage & Cook County
Being arrested and facing criminal charges is a terrible experience. The criminal defense system can often be confusing and intimidating, and the process can feel slow and impersonal. Further, many attorneys don't take the time to fully explain your case, your rights and the potential impact on your life. If you have been arrested, or are being charged with a felony or misdemeanor in Illinois, you not only need a skilled Criminal Defense Attorney to protect your rights, you need someone who truly cares about making sure you understand the process every step of the way.
Attorney Viviana Ramirez has spent over twenty years defending the rights of the accused, in both state and federal court, and is here to help you through this process. If you are facing any of the following charges, contact us immediately to set up an appointment:
ILLINOIS FELONIES OR MISDEMEANORS: THE DIFFERENCE CAN BE LIFE CHANGING
The Illinois Criminal Code classifies various crimes in either the misdemeanor or felony category. The misdemeanor category is far less serious, containing 3 classes (A, B, C) with sentences of up to one year in county jail and fines of up to $2,500. Felonies are divided into five classes (X, 1, 2, 3, 4), with sentences of one to 30 (or more) years in state prison and fines of up to $25,000. In addition, most felonies do not qualify for an expungement, meaning a felony conviction can remain on your record permanently.
Attorney Viviana Ramirez understands the negative impact a felony, and often times a misdemeanor, can have on your future. For this reason, she works hard to challenge the State’s evidence, ensuring your rights were not violated by the police in an effort to defeat a guilty verdict. In the appropriate situation, she will work with you to gather mitigating evidence with an eye towards having a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor. Viviana is a skilled negotiator and has had great success in obtaining lesser sentences on her clients’ behalf. She thoroughly researches every angle, and if there is any hole in the prosecution’s case, she will take advantage of it to bring about a better outcome for you and your family.
