Misdemeanor & Felony Lawyers – Serving Gurnee & Lake County, Illinois

Solve your legal problems

Most misdemeanor crimes are punishable by imprisonment of up to one year. Having a conviction of a misdemeanor on your record can affect your ability to get a lob, a loan or even a professional license.

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

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

How can Nutschnig & Cavanaugh help?

  • File 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
  • Petition 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?

  • In all criminal cases, time is extremely important
  • Timely filing of Evidence Preservation Orders
  • My initial interview should be done within 1-2 days of the arrest because memories fade and evidence can disappear with time.
  • Same day appointments are always available with my office for your convenience
  • Evenings and weekends (Saturday and Sunday) are available by appointment
