Chicago Post-Conviction Relief Attorney

Just because you were convicted of a crime doesn’t mean that your conviction must forever haunt employment background checks, stop you from becoming a U.S. citizen or remain a deportation threat.

There is no reason to let a youthful mistake, misunderstanding, past criminal record—or especially a criminal identity theft—be a barrier to future opportunities. Many options of post-conviction relief are available to help you, even after you have served time, finished probation, or paid your fines. Relief is critical for clearing the records of victims of criminal identity theft.

Through post-conviction proceedings, the Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus can attempt to lessen the negative consequences of having been convicted of a crime. Your background may be used against you in rental matters, employment and education opportunities, by Immigration and Naturalization—and even socially.

Why Post-Conviction Relief?

Buffalo Grove Criminal Defense Attorney

Illinois Criminal Defense Lawyer Representing Clients in Buffalo Grove

 Have you recently been arrested for a crime or charged with a criminal offense in Illinois? You need to know that criminal charges can have serious consequences, and you should be focusing on beating the charges you are facing. Whether you are a first-time offender who is facing misdemeanor charges or you already have a criminal record and are facing felony charges, a conviction can have serious consequences. Even a misdemeanor offense can alter your ability to be considered for certain types of employment, and you may need to disclose your criminal record any time you apply for a job or for credit. And even a misdemeanor can lead to jail time. When you are facing felony charges, you can be looking at a substantial prison sentence if you cannot build a successful defense. 

At the Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus, we are committed to providing clients with the strongest defense we can. An experienced Buffalo Grove criminal defense attorney at our firm will evaluate your situation and work to develop a specific defense strategy that is tailored to the facts of your case.

Types of Criminal Defense Cases We Handle in Buffalo Grove

At the Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus, we represent defendants in many different kinds of criminal cases. We offer tailored criminal defense services to clients facing the following types of misdemeanor and felony charges: 

In addition to the above criminal defense services, we also routinely assist clients with post-conviction relief, including but not limited to the following: 

Build a Defense Based on the Facts of Your Case with a Buffalo Grove Defense Attorney’s Help

It is extremely important to work with a criminal defense attorney in Buffalo Grove who can build a strong defense that is tailored to the circumstances of your arrest and the charges against you. For example, a DUI defense strategy that may be effective for a client whose Fourth Amendment rights against unlawful search and seizure were violated will not necessarily be effective for a client who was given a defective breathalyzer test.

By working with an Illinois criminal defense lawyer, you can ensure that we will look precisely at the facts of your case and will build a defense designed to help you beat the charges you are facing. If winning your case does not seem likely, you should know that we may be able to have the charges against you reduced to a citable offense or to an offense that carries a lesser penalty.
