Felony Defense Experience That Matters
If you are charged with a serious crime, you probably are feeling a great amount of fear and desperation. From domestic violence to murder, criminal charges with a violent aspect carry the strictest penalties – the kind that can destroy your life. In the most serious cases, life in prison is a possibility.
Hiring an extensively experienced criminal defense lawyer is crucial to your future. At Ekl, Williams & Provenzale LLC in DuPage County, our attorneys are highly knowledgeable in criminal law and have a track record of effective defense. We are tenacious in the courtroom and will aggressively defend your rights.
How A Felony Offense Is Different
Penalties for felony crimes are harsh and may include both state and federal charges. What makes a felony different from a misdemeanor is the degree of the crime – such as the amount of money that was stolen, how badly a person was injured or whether a weapon was used – and whether it was a repeat offense, among other situations. Punishments include high fines, lengthy probation time or a prison sentence.
The attorneys at the Illinois law firm of Ekl, Williams & Provenzale LLC have the deep trial experience necessary to represent clients with every type of felony arrest, including:
- Homicide and assault
- Sex offenses
- Drug arrests

In some cases, a highly skilled defense attorney may be able to get a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor charge or dismissed altogether.

You may be unable to vote, possess firearms or get student loans in the future with a felony conviction on your record, to name a few examples.
