Accusations do not constitute guilt in Illinois or elsewhere

Many people have lost their freedom or incurred other penalties when convicted of serious crimes in Illinois. However, mere accusations do not prove one has committed any type of crime. In fact, the criminal justice system in the United States presumes anyone accused of a crime innocent unless proved otherwise in court. Therefore, it is typically within one's best interests when accused of criminal acts to build as strong a defense as possible.

Generally speaking, your chances of obtaining a positive outcome in court are increased by allowing an experienced defense attorney to fight the charges on your behalf. The process can begin even long before an arrest has taken place or any charges filed. By contacting an attorney as soon as you become aware that you are the subject of a criminal investigation, you take the first steps toward preparing a defense should charges later be filed.

An experienced attorney can thoroughly assess the investigative process to determine whether any of your personal rights have been violated. For instance, investigators may not have adhered to protocol when searching your home, vehicle or person. In such situations, an attorney would know just what to do to challenge proffered evidence in court if your situation leads to a trial.

Ralph E. Meczyk & Associates has successfully assisted many Illinois clients who were victims of mistaken identities, as well as some who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. We are fully prepared to address accusations against you through whatever means we determine best to protect your rights and minimize the negative impact of the situation. Preserving your freedom is a priority we take very seriously.
