f you are facing a DUI, traffic violation, misdemeanor or felony criminal offense in Rockford, Machesney Park, Loves Park, or Winnebago County, having a skilled attorney matters. When the time comes to make the critical decision of hiring the right criminal defense lawyer, you'll want to be represented by someone who has the skill to handle your case.
What makes Marriett Legal's office different from other criminal defense lawyers is that before we start trying to negotiate with the State's Attorney to obtain a favorable plea to your case we first try to have your case dismissed! Starting from this goal requires more work for your attorney, but in the end can result in a much better outcome for the client in most criminal defense cases.
This means that after you retain the services of Marriett Legal, we immediately file our entry of appearance on your case and serve discovery motions on the State's Attorney handling your case. If we cannot have your case dismissed based on the evidence the State has against you, we then seek to have your charges reduced (For example, from a felony charge to a misdemeanor charge) if the facts will allow such a departure, this can result in significantly less time in jail or DOC time and in lower fines assessed in any plea bargain, or sentence after a trial. We also will review the evidence and analyze the way evidence was obtained against you to see whether or not we can have that evidence suppressed if it was taken in violation of your constitutional rights.
