Criminal Law Attorneys In Cook County, Illinois

Experience You Need In Your Corner

What matters most when you or a loved one faces criminal charges is obtaining the highest-quality legal counsel whose sole focus will be seeing your case to the best possible outcome under the circumstances. You can't afford to put your fate in the hands of anyone whose area of experience and success is in anything other than criminal law.

At McSweeney Moore Law Offices, criminal defense is our exclusive area of focus. This means that every single day, our attorneys zealously defend people throughout Chicagoland charged with felonies and misdemeanors in Illinois state courts. As a result, they are exceptionally well-versed not only in the relevant criminal laws, but also in the nuances of criminal courts throughout Cook County and the collar counties, including how specific judges and prosecutors approach different types of cases. Equipped with this insight, we can develop effective strategies to respond to even the most serious, life-changing criminal charges.

Colleen McSweeney Moore, our founding attorney, has seen criminal cases from every angle, first as a prosecutor in the Cook County State Attorney's Office, then for nearly 20 years as a Cook County Circuit Court judge, where she presided over thousands of criminal cases. Now as a private defense lawyer, she brings this unparalleled experience and insight to bear when our clients are facing the very serious consequences of a criminal conviction.

We'll Take The Time To Get Your Case Right

You might hear about lawyers who say they can deliver "fast results" or wrap up a case in a matter of days. When it comes to your freedom and your future, however, is it really worth it to emphasize speed over results?

Where our clients' lives are concerned, we believe it's better to do something once and do it right. It's as simple as that. We never drag our feet — we're as eager as our clients are to get them moving on with their lives. At the same time, we don't take shortcuts, and we'll develop every aspect of a case so that our clients are always in the best possible position, no matter how the evidence might look at first. While a case is ongoing, moreover, we make it a point to be available to our clients — by telephone, in person, whatever meets their needs — so that they're never left wondering, "How's my case going?"
