Criminal Defense Attorneys – Gurnee, IL

Representation you can trust

Criminal arrests, whether misdemeanor or felony, are serious matters that require the skill, knowledge and experience my office provides. In your time of trouble, I will be your advisor and advocate who will aggressively protect your rights.

What can happen to me as a result of a criminal arrest?

  • Face jail or prison sentence
  • Possible incarceration while a case is ongoing
  • You may lose your driver’s license (even if not a traffic offense)
  • Face probation supervision
  • Serve public service sentences
  • Fines and costs totaling tens of thousands of dollar against you
  • Face loss of FOID card
  • Criminal convictions that follow you for the rest of your life and prevent employment or advancement and even approval of loans

How can Nutschnig & Cavanaugh help?

  • Petition for bond reductions and release motions
  • Bond liens allow me to represent you without a down payment: your money goes for your release on bond, not representation
  • File for dismissal through a Motion to Quash Arrest and Suppress Evidence
  • Negotiate settlements that keep you out of jail, keep your license, and minimize fines and costs
  • Negotiate settlements that enable you to erase (expunge) charges from your record at a later date and protect your record
  • Prepare aggressive trial strategies to fight the case against you

Is time important?

  • Absolutely! Time is critical.
  • All Evidence Preservation Orders should be timely filed
  • My initial interview should usually be done within 1-2 days of the arrest. Memories can fade and evidence disappears with time. We need to act immediately.
  • Same day appointments are always available with my office for quick action
  • Evenings and weekends (Saturday and Sunday) are available by appointment
