Persuasive Felonies Lawyer Representing Peoria Clients
If you are staring down felony charges, it is normal to want to simply hide under a rock and wish it away, but, unfortunately, this strategy won’t work. You need to retain a skilled criminal defense attorney who can represent you adequately in court. Gary L. Morris Attorney at Law has been providing this service in Peoria and Bloomington for over 40 years and is eager to protect your rights, too.
What is at Stake?
Felonies in Illinois are classified on a scale according to their severity. Classifications are A through F, with A felonies reserved for the most serious crimes and incurring the harshest penalties, including life in prison. Even the most “benign” felony can result in up to five years in prison and/or up to $5,000 in fines.
Convicted felons also face negative consequences after being released, including a suspension of voting privileges, ineligibility for certain jobs or housing options, being barred from owning a firearm or applying for government-subsidized student loans, social stigma, and more.
What is the Plan?
We need to begin preparing for your trial. The first step is to scrutinize your arrest report and the other paperwork filed by authorities to see if we can determine a case-ruining mistake on their part. If none exists, we’ll devise a strategy for introducing reasonable doubt, highlight your contributions to society, and other tactics to sway the case in your favor. We have decades of experience defending clients and have many methods of defense at our disposal.
