When you are facing a legal issue, whether that issue is related to your divorce or you are facing a criminal charge, work with an experienced Avenues family law or criminal defense lawyer to give your case the best chance possible at reaching a favorable resolution. If your case falls into the realm of divorce or family law, work with an experienced family lawyer.

Criminal Defense

When you are facing a criminal charge, it is critical to your liberty and your future that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney. Otherwise, you could find yourself facing a large fine, a jail sentence, probation, and limits to your future employment and housing opportunities. Our firm handles juvenile defense and the defense of adults who are facing criminal charges. Examples of the types of cases we handle include:

  • Underage drinking charges;
  • Drug-related charges;
  • Domestic violence charges;
  • Violent crime charges;
  • Theft charges;
  • Truancy;
  • DUI; and
  • Traffic violations.

Individuals who have criminal records can seek an expungement to have certain convictions removed, making it easier for them to move forward with their lives. However, expungement has many requirements for the individual and can require the careful oversight of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Divorce and Family Law

Family law can be complex. When most people hear the term “family law,” their minds often jump to divorce. Although divorce is certainly a part of family law, it is far from the only area that makes up this broad practice.

Our firm works with clients who are facing all of the following family law and divorce-related issues, such as:

  • Child support;
  • Child custody;
  • Spousal support;
  • Domestic partnership;
  • Paternity issues;
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements;
  • Post-judgment modifications;
  • Annulments;
  • Adoptions; and
  • DCFS actions.
