Lake County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Grayslake DUI Attorney

Criminal charges can affect your entire life and future. By enlisting the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney, you can ensure that your rights are protected and that your case will be handled as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Clients trust me, Illinois attorney Charles E. Rapin, with a wide range of criminal defense matters. My experience as a former assistant state's attorney in Lake County provided me with experience in numerous criminal law matters. I use this experience when advising clients and determining how to proceed with a case. I can anticipate moves by the prosecution and attempt to negotiate an agreement for a lesser charge, or dismissal of the charges, if possible and if in your interest.

I have handled cases involving DUI and traffic offenses, as well as other felony and misdemeanor charges. My firm handles cases where criminal charges have been filed or arrests have been made regarding:

  • DUI (drunk driving)
  • Traffic tickets (including speeding and reckless driving)
  • Drug charges (including possession and intent to sell)
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Theft and shoplifting

My criminal defense practice is focused on handling crimes that fall into the jurisdiction of state courts.

It is important that you treat criminal charges seriously. If convicted, you may be facing a driver's license suspension, jail or prison time, large fines and a criminal record. With my help, we may be able to minimize the charges against you in order to protect your future.

  • Depending on the disposition of your case, I can also handle the expungement of certain types of crimes from your criminal record.
