If you are facing criminal charges, it is important to remember that a charge does not equal a conviction. Contact our experts for criminal law services in Chicago, and we will help you through every step of the process, from arraignment to trial.
After an arrest has been made, the arraignment-or first hearing-will allow you to hear the specific charges being made against you, as well as the potential punishments for these charges. No facts of the case will be presented at this time, but you will be required to plea "guilty," "not guilty," or "no contest."
The trial period is your opportunity to share your side of the story. With the proper representation and guidance, you can enter this period informed and prepared to fight for your rights.
