Domestic Violence Lawyer in Chicago

Protecting Your Legal Rights & Best Interest

Have you been arrested for domestic violence in Chicago or in the State of Illinois? Any type of legal charge is stressful but any type of alleged offense which involves your family or someone with which you share a home can be especially troubling. Although domestic violence charges should carry significant evidence, there are other circumstances where an arrest can occur. For example, if a neighbor called the police because they heard a fight, law enforcement may be able to arrest you without your spouse accusing you.
