Former Judge & Former Prosecutor, Dedicated to Defending Your Rights

DuPage County DUI Law Firm Dedicated to Winning Your Case

Fear sets in during the moments following an arrest – fear that impairs your judgment. Those initial decisions you make are vital. Speaking to law enforcement about your legal matter without legal representation ignores your rights and compromises your case. Contacting an attorney is an important first step to ensure that your rights are protected and to preserve your name and reputation.  We often meet with clients once, or even simply discuss their issue over the phone, before we take steps to protect their rights and secure the correct result. Whether your situation involves a first-time arrest for Driving under the Influence, accused of domestic battery, or charged with Attempted Murder, or any other criminal charge, we will provide dedicated representation designed to beat the charges and win your case.

Felony and Misdemeanor Defense Services

When you are facing criminal charges, you need tough, aggressive assistance. You need an attorney who knows the courts in DuPage or Cook County and has the trial experience to fight for you. You deserve an attorney who has helped people facing the same challenges you are now facing.

The legal team at McMahon Law Offices possesses hands-on experience and a track record of successful litigation on behalf of our clients charged with felonies and misdemeanors. We have handled virtually every felony and misdemeanor offense over the course of our careers. We can provide you with highest degree of criminal defense representation available.

DuPage County Domestic Battery Lawyer

Domestic violence can take many forms, including threats, stalking, intimidation, and physical and sexual abuse. When the police show up to respond to a domestic violence call — usually from someone overhearing the argument — one person involved in the fight is leaving the house. The “zero tolerance” policy by law enforcement in domestic violence cases often results in an arrest first with questions later.

DuPage County IL, Cook County IL – Domestic Battery Attorneys and Former Prosecutors

With our entire legal team composed of former prosecutors, the attorneys at McMahon Law Offices know the aggressive approach that law enforcement takes in domestic violence cases. We match that aggression with equal aggression at all hearings, including those that involve filings for orders of protection. The stakes are far too high in trial. Alleged victims are forced to testify, even if they recant and want the charges dropped. On your behalf, we protect your rights and focus on winning your case.

Speeding Tickets and Traffic Violations Defense Services

If you have received a ticket for a driving offense in Illinois, it is very important to discuss your traffic ticket(s) with an attorney. After your car was pulled over by a police officer, it is quite common to have questions about the incident. Do I need a lawyer? Will this effect my insurance? Will I lose my license? Those are examples of questions that clients have after receiving traffic tickets. Every case has unique circumstances and that is why it extremely important to contact our law offices.

In Illinois, it is crucial that you are not convicted of a moving violation as it could lead to a suspension of your driver’s license and/or an increase in your premium for automobile insurance. Convictions can be obtained many ways. First, never mail in a traffic ticket to the clerk of the circuit court and plea guilty. This will cause a permanent blemish on your record leading to a suspension and higher insurance rates. Second, if you are pulled over for an offense that occurs out of the state of Illinois, do not just pay the fine. The Illinois Secretary of State’s Office will learn about the out of state incident and most likely interpret the matter as a conviction. Finally, if you possess an out of state license or have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), a plea of guilty will not assist you even if you are sentenced to court supervision and not a conviction. For all of those reasons, a traffic ticket should be carefully scrutinized by McMahon Law Offices. The legal team at McMahon Law Offices possesses hands-on experience and a track record of successfully helping to convince a prosecutor to amend, dismiss, minimize fines and avoid traffic safety school on your traffic ticket.
