On Your Side: An Experienced Lake County, Illinois, Criminal Defense Attorney

Criminal charges have serious implications, all of which together can leave you feeling vulnerable. You fear for your job, your personal freedom, and any potential impact on your family. In a time like this, having an attorney on your side with proven criminal defense experience can be the difference between hope for a positive outcome and despair.

I — Michael J. Conway Attorney at Law, L.L.C. — have 25 years of experience aggressively defending the rights of people in Waukegan and throughout Northeastern Illinois who are facing a range of criminal charges. Whether you have been charged with a serious felony or misdemeanor, I will use my experience to zealously defend you and protect your rights.

Direct Attorney Representation • Thorough Case Investigations

From the start of your case onward, you will work directly with an  experienced trial lawyer who will listen to your side of the story, and then work to defend your interests throughout the legal process. I will review the facts of your case in order to find evidence that could lead to a dismissal of charges. If charges cannot be dismissed, I will work to find case law to support your position and will argue effectively on your behalf in plea negotiations or in trial proceedings.

I defend my clients in a range of felonies and misdemeanors, including:

  • Murder and Weapon offenses
  • Theft, Robbery and Burglary
  • Assault and Domestic Battery
  • DUI and other Traffic offenses
  • Drug offenses, including drug possession and trafficking
  • Sexual offenses, including sexual abuse and sexual assault
  • Municipal violations
  • Juvenile charges

My goal is to find any information that could be used to build a strong defense against your criminal charges. If necessary, I will take on an investigative role in order to find this information, including interviewing witnesses, taking pictures, tracking down records, and — in some cases — hiring an independent investigator.
