Attorney Stephen Hall Modern, Effective Representation You Can Trust

Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney

The Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer for You

Federal charges are serious and demand a certain level of professional legal representation and care. Federal prosecutors spend a great deal of time carefully building their case, and the consequences of losing can result in a separation from your loved ones and your way of life for many years. At The Law Office of Stephen F. Hall, we know the system, we know the courts, and we know how to protect your rights.

State Criminal Defense

While state criminal charges are not thought to carry the same weight as federal charges, they can be just as serious and impact your life in ways both small and large. Our state criminal defense attorneys in Chicago have significant experience and are ready to carry into court on your behalf. Our team is driven by a passion to fight for you to make sure your rights and freedom are protected.

Understanding Felony Vs. Misdemeanor

There is often some confusion surrounding the two types of charge designations.

A misdemeanor crime involves minor criminal offenses that may lead to:

  • A fine of up to $2,500
  • Up to a year of jail time
  • Both a fine and jail time

A felony crime is more serious and as such comes with stiffer penalties, such as:

  • Jail time based upon the laws for the specific crime
  • Hefty fines
  • Both jail time and large fines

Looking Forward to Joining Your Team

Misdemeanors and felonies are divided further into classes with varying levels of severity. Regardless of class, however, both misdemeanors and felonies can remain on your public record and be detrimental to your future. The best way to mitigate the possible damage of a federal or state charge, a misdemeanor or a felony, is through securing proper representation to help navigate the charges and the process afterwards.
