The Importance of a Local Attorney
Some people think that the best legal representation is offered in big towns. In many situations, that is not the case. If you live in St. Clair or Madison Counties, you need a lawyer who is familiar with the area. An out-of-town lawyer will not be as familiar with the system, may not have dealt with the judges or negotiated with the prosecutors. A lawyer who is in the area and interacts with the same legal professionals will have a better idea of what to expect and how to best prepare your defense. If you are an out-of-state driver, we may be able to handle your entire case without you having to return to Illinois.
