Handling Criminal Defense And Personal Injury

Defense Against Felony Charges, Including Manslaughter

Being convicted of a felony offense can lead to years of imprisonment and the loss of basic rights that nonfelons take for granted. It is not an overstatement to say a felony conviction can change everything about your life.

Through my criminal defense practice at the Clay J. Mitchell, Attorney at Law, in Wauconda, Illinois, I defend clients from across Northern Illinois who have been accused of felony crimes. For more than 23 years, I have helped accused clients to limit the effects of arrests and convictions, whether they are misdemeanor or felony in nature.

Retain my services, and I will work to have your charges dismissed or reduced to a nonfelony status. If your case goes to trial, I will work to prove your innocence. If it is not possible for me to secure an acquittal, I will do everything in my power to limit the penalties of a conviction, including fines and prison time.
