Felonies are criminal offenses that carry a maximum penalty of more than one year incarceration. Because felonies are serious charges that carry significant penalties, it is important to enlist the help of an experienced Illinois felony attorney who understands the criminal justice system and can advocate on your behalf for dismissal or reduced charges.
For more than 14 years, Chicago criminal defense attorney Thomas F. McGuire has dedicated his legal practice to criminal law matters, including both felonies and misdemeanors. As a former Cook County State’s Attorney and judicial clerk, Mr. McGuire has considerable experience with the Illinois criminal courts and is familiar with the strategies and methods used by prosecutors, making him exceptionally capable of protecting your rights. He has successfully obtained a dismissal and/or reduction in charges, and a reduced sentence for many of his felony and misdemeanor clients.
