DeKalb Criminal Defense Lawyer
Fighting Misdemeanor, Felony, and Federal Charges
Are you faced with the threat of a criminal charge? Whether you are accused of a misdemeanor or felony DUI offense, or drug crimes such as possession, prescription fraud, sales, or distribution, the penalties in a conviction can be life-changing. The repercussions extend beyond the fines, jail or prison time and other punishments – your criminal record is now compromised, and your ability to get quality employment greatly reduced. In a tough job market, even a first time, misdemeanor DUI offense can take you out of the running, even if you have more experience, training and qualifications.

Benefits of Choosing the Firm
At The Toney Law Firm, LLC, the team's criminal attorney gives each case, whether a felony or misdemeanor, the attention and focus necessary. With a reputation for excellence, Ms. Toney has been chosen for the Illinois Super Lawyers list multiple times. She has achieved many notable victories and can evaluate your case and advise you what can be done to help you fight back in court.
The ability to craft a successful criminal defense requires more than just knowledge of law. It is necessary that your attorney has insight and the ability to negotiate with the prosecutor, as well as to present a persuasive case to a jury. If you are searching for a high quality, aggressive defense lawyer with a record of success at trial, contact the firm as early as possible after your arrest. If you have not yet been arrested, but have been called in for questioning in a criminal case, it is strongly advised that you have defense counsel with you throughout the process. In many cases, an arrest is pending and the questioning is merely to gain more evidence to be used against the accused in court.
How Can The Toney Law Firm, LLC help?
The firm defends against charges filed in either state or federal court, including cases involving accusations of sex crimes, including but not limited to internet sex crimes, rape, sexual abuse, and child pornography. In cases in which borders, either state or international, have been crossed, the charges filed are often federal crimes. Not all criminal defense lawyers are familiar with federal court, or admitted to practice.
Other Areas of Focus
- If you are seeking an expungement to clear your criminal record, contact the firm for assistance.
- Those who have a child that is in trouble with the law need to have legal representation to defend against juvenile crimes.
- In serious felony offenses, the prosecutor often wants to transfer a case from juvenile court to adult criminal court.
The juvenile court system is less harsh in punishment, and geared toward rehabilitation rather than punishment, and every effort must be made to attempt to keep the case out of adult court should this be an issue. Young people can get in trouble and have their future opportunities destroyed or compromised. You want to be confident that everything possible will be done for the defense of your child, and you can trust the firm to be committed and engaged in every step of the process.
Defense for Burglary, Robbery, and Violent Crime Charges
The criminal justice system is a tough area to be caught. The state and federal governments have almost unlimited resources to call upon in support of their case against you, including law enforcements, investigators, laboratories, expert witnesses and others. Your case must be in the hands of an attorney that knows the system and how to fight back successfully, as well as having access to the most respected expert witnesses to call to the stand when needed.
The firm has garnered a reputation throughout the courts in the area for excellent legal work. If you are facing charges for theft crimes, such as burglary/robbery or for violent crimes, including assault, or even more serious, murder/manslaughter, the attorney at the firm should be contacted without delay. The more quickly she gets involved in your defense, the better it could be for you in your case. Our firm also can address accusations of probation violations and take immediate action on your behalf.
The firm offers the highest level of professional service and care in every case taken on. The first step is to contact them and get your case evaluated. There could be viable defense opportunities that could greatly benefit you, and these should be found immediately. If there have been rights violations, faulty police procedures, untrustworthy witnesses or other factors that should be exposed to the court, the earlier the firm gets involved, the better it could be for you with regard to what happens in your case.
