You Can Get Through This

Do not let fear get the best of you. Criminal charges can be fought. You still have a chance with an experienced attorney on your side.

Focus On The Facts And Move Forward

Being accused of a crime is scary. There is no doubt about it. The stakes can be high and you may be at risk of serious penalties. However, it is important to focus on the facts and not let fear get the best of you. Be aware that police and prosecutors may make it seem as though the odds are stacked against you when, in reality, you can fight criminal charges.

At Hammel Law Offices P.C. in Joliet, our lawyers focus on the facts. We begin every case by conducting a thorough assessment and informing you about the reality of the situation. We will empower you with knowledge of your rights and the potential outcomes of your case, and we will keep you involved in the process. While we investigate and find weaknesses in the case against you, we will give you a list of items that you can do to strengthen your position. Together, we will work diligently in pursuit of the best possible outcome.
