Protecting your rights when you are being investigated
If you are being investigated for a criminal charge, you likely need an attorney to ensure that your rights are protected. We have helped those under investigation by getting involved early on and proactively communicating with the police and prosecution. If the police approach you, politely inform the police officer you are represented by The Crosby Law Firm and that you will not speak unless your lawyer is present. If an arrest is imminent, we can negotiate for an orderly, voluntary surrender so that you are not handcuffed at work or in front of your family. Our lawyers are experienced criminal defense attorneys who have handled cases for adults and juveniles in Rockford and the surrounding areas. We know the law, we know the courts, and we know how to help you.
Let us build your criminal defense
Criminal defense requires know-how and finesse. At The Crosby Law Firm, our goal is to get the charges against you dropped. When that is not possible, we will negotiate reduced charges, jail times, or fines. We can provide affordable criminal defense for:
Domestic violence or domestic battery
Assault and battery
Drug crimes and DUI or DWI offenses
Orders of protection
Restraining orders or injunctions
Legal Representation for Domestic Violence
If a spouse or partner accuses you of domestic violence, you may face criminal charges as well as a severe disruption of your personal life. If the accuser obtains an order of protection against you, you could be barred from seeing your family and entering your home. These situations often dovetail with divorce proceedings as well. Our firm handles both criminal defense and family law and is prepared to protect your rights on all fronts.
Count on Us for DUI or DWI Defense
A charge of driving under the influence (DUI) is serious. A conviction for DUI can leave you unable to drive due to your driver’s license being suspended or revoked for an extended period of time. How will you get to work? While sentencing guidelines are stiff, a case can be made for driving relief (ability to drive to and from work) by installing a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID). With the BAIID installed, the driver must submit a breath test every time he or she wishes to start the vehicle.
Charged with Drunk Driving?
You will need an attorney with experience on your side to help you keep your driver’s license, reduce or eliminate your jail time, and to help you minimize fines and other penalties. The Crosby Law Firm is an affordable option for legal services, staffed with a team of defense attorneys who will fiercely defend your driving rights.
