Lake County Criminal Lawyer

Are You Charged with a Crime?

If you or someone you love is under arrest on a criminal charge, or is the target in a criminal investigation, you need to ensure that you have legal representation from a knowledgeable lawyer from The Toney Law Firm, LLC. The firm has garnered a reputation for outstanding ability in criminal defense, whether the charges have been filed in state court or your legal problem involves federal crimes.

The firm is aggressive in their approach, and the first step in the process is a full evaluation of the evidence that led to your arrest. Whether accused of drug crimes such as possession, prescription fraud, sales, or distribution, or dangerous criminal accusations involving sex crimes such as internet sex crimes, rape, sexual abuse, or child pornography, she will analyze the case and advise you about what can be done for your defense.

A quality defense in court takes time, effort and dedication. She takes on her duty to her clients very seriously, and will do everything possible to gain an advantage for you, whether pursuing a case dismissal, a reduced charge, or an acquittal in court.

The Importance of Skilled Defense

Never take the chance of making a court appearance without your defense attorney present, whether an arraignment, a pre-trial hearing or a bail hearing. In the criminal justice system, things can go badly off the rails without skilled legal help managing the situation. The firm offers legal counsel in all types of criminal charges and situations, including expungement, juvenile crimes, probation violations and in defending all types of theft crimes, including felony burglary/robbery. Should you or someone you love be accused of violent crimes, particularly murder/manslaughter, the penalties imposed in a conviction can include years in state prison, or even life.

When there are weapons charges involved, state lawmakers have increased the penalties in any criminal case if a gun or other weapon is alleged to have been used as a threat. Your future freedom can be at risk, and you must take action if you are hoping to avoid penalties. The first step is to contact the firm, prior to your case progressing any further through the system. The attorney will manage every step of the process with your rights and interests as her only concern.

A great number of white collar crimes are federal offenses. These include wire fraud, mail fraud, insurance fraud, tax fraud, credit card fraud or mortgage fraud. Other crimes that are financial in nature and involved the use of the mail system or the internet are often filed in federal court. When banks or other lenders are involved, the federal government usually gets involved. Federal court is exceptionally tough, and the penalties imposed are usually much more severe than at the state level. It is necessary to ensure you have the highest quality defense lawyer throughout every step of the process. At The Toney Law Firm, LLC, they have access to the most respected resources to assist in defending your case, including forensic accountants, computer experts and others. Protect yourself with a lawyer that knows the system and has a reputation for success, and call the firm for more information.
