5 Reasons Why You Should Choose an Attorney from Your Area

First, an Illinois criminal defense lawyer could be just the thing you need to get you out of jail. The last time I was arrested, I had to spend three months in jail before the judge reduced my sentence to community service and I got five years probation instead. I spent two months in Cook County Jail because I couldn’t afford to pay the five hundred thousand dollars my fines were costing me. I was in such bad shape that I nearly killed myself while in jail because I wanted to commit suicide. Luckily, my lawyer got me a position at a rehabilitation center in Springfield Illinois because I was so grateful he came to my rescue.

Second, if you are facing criminal charges in Illinois, don’t hire a defense lawyer from another state! I’ve lived in several states all over the Midwest and have friends in Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. I thought that having a criminal defense lawyer in Illinois was a benefit because I would have someone who had lived in the area where I was arrested. Unfortunately, most criminal lawyers don’t know enough about the states you are charged in until you’ve been in jail for several months. If you are facing criminal charges in Illinois, get out of prison as fast as possible by hiring an attorney from the area where you were arrested.
