Experienced Legal Representation For Criminal And Family Law Issues

Few things in life are as serious as criminal charges. The consequences can range from fines and the personal embarrassment of an alcohol-related charge to years or decades in a penitentiary, losing your marriage, your family, your job or career. With a severe prison sentence, you may lose everything but your life.

The Experience Of A Former Judge And Prosecutor

Given those potential consequences, hiring the right criminal defense attorney is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. How can you choose correctly? In the criminal court of Illinois, there is no substitute for experience. At McSweeney Moore Law Offices, our founding attorney was a Cook County prosecutor for 11 years, and a criminal court judge for 18 years, and she has 35 years of experience working with the law.

We Understand Criminal Charges

Being charged with a crime can be a bewildering and tumultuous experience. Whether you face a DUI or a serious violent crime charge or have been charged with a sex crime, you need a strong attorney guiding your defense and protecting your rights.

We handle a wide range of cases, including those that involve:

  • Traffic offenses and driving under the influence (DUI) charges, including felony DUIs
  • Violent crimes, including domestic violence, weapons offenses, and assault and battery
  • Drug crimes, including possession, distribution and trafficking
  • Sex offenses, including internet sex crimes, sexual assault and child molestation
  • Property crimes, including theft, vandalism, burglary and robbery

Our attorneys know that the best defense is an offense. We examine the charges and look for every weakness to challenge the prosecution's case and argument. While acquittal is always our goal, we focus on achieving the best outcome under the unique circumstances for every client.

Family Law Matters

Our lawyers also can help clients with family law issues. We know divorce and child custody can be emotional, and we can help clarify the law and explain how the process works. Parents who are willing to work cooperatively with their child's other parent can help to minimize the conflict a child experiences and goes a long way toward preventing divorce from being a traumatic time for a child.
