On Your Side: An Experienced Lake County, Illinois, JUVENILE LAW Attorney

When a minor is arrested or otherwise referred to Juvenile Court regarding an allegation of Juvenile Delinquency, having an attorney on your side with proven experience in Juvenile Court is essential for effective representation of that child. Similarly, if you are a parent facing an allegation of neglect or abuse, and you are at risk of having your children removed from your custody and care, you need to have legal representation by a lawyer that understands both the process in the Juvenile Court system and D.C.F.S. procedures. At Michael J. Conway Attorney at Law, L.L.C., I have 25 years of experience aggressively defending the rights of parents and minors in Vernon Hills and throughout Northeastern Illinois who are facing a range of allegations. You can be assured that I will use my Juvenile Law experience to zealously defend you and protect your rights whether the delinquency allegation is a serious felony or misdemeanor or if the abuse or neglect allegations are such that D.C.F.S. has taken protective custody of your children.

Direct Attorney Representation • Thorough Case Investigations

From the start of your case, 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 conduct the necessary research to find case law to support your position and present effective argument on your behalf in trial proceedings, motions or plea negotiations.

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

  • Murder and Weapon offenses
  • Theft, Robbery and Burglary
  • Assault and Domestic Battery
  • Drug offenses, including drug possession and trafficking
  • Sexual offenses, including sexual abuse and sexual assault

My objective is to determine any facts and information that could be used to build a strong defense against your delinquency, abuse or neglect charges. If necessary, I will personally conduct my own research and investigation in order to obtain this information, including interviewing witnesses, taking pictures, locating records and — in some cases — hiring an independent investigator.
