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?

Chicago Criminal Defense Attorneys

Representing Those Accused of Crimes in Chicago and Surrounding Areas for Over 30 Years

When it comes to providing legal representation to someone who has been accused of a crime, it is essential for an attorney to have firsthand knowledge of how police and prosecutors assemble evidence and cases. This insider knowledge allows an attorney to know exactly what to expect and what strategy will work best when it comes to building your defense. 

At the Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus, our Chicago criminal defense attorneys handle all types of cases, from traffic violations, to misdemeanors, to serious felonies and juvenile offenses throughout Will, Cook, and surrounding counties. We work as a team, assembling our own evidence with our own experts, meanwhile ensuring that the best possible criminal defense has been assembled for our clients. With a founding attorney who has worked as a police officer, detective, and prosecuting attorney, we draw on over 30 years of experience working in criminal justice. We have that firsthand knowledge to provide to our clients. Contact us today to find out how we can help you.

Being Accused Of a Crime in Illinois

When it comes being suspected of a crime and wondering if you should or should not speak with an attorney, there is absolutely no time to waste. It can be very difficult to figure out whether you are officially in police custody, or free to leave; whether you have to answer a police officer’s questions, or whether you should remain silent, as any answers can be used against you.

The fact of the matter is that incriminating statements made by defendants who did not realize that they were being questioned about a crime for which they were suspect are used in courtrooms and in negotiating plea bargains every day. 

In addition, working with an attorney who has a history of working with the local courts and law enforcement can be of tremendous benefit in building the best defense for yourself. Relationships are built on an everyday basis with judges and others who work in the courthouse capacity. Knowing how everything works translates to invaluable benefits for clients.
