Knowing The Stakes In A Criminal Defense Case

Your reputation. Your career. Your family. These were not handed to you. You worked hard to build them and create your life. Criminal charges put it all in jeopardy. Whether you are being questioned or charges have been filed, you know that you need to respond immediately and decisively in order to protect yourself and all you have built.

At the Law Offices of Damon M. Cheronis in Chicago, our goal is to protect your future, and to avoid fines, incarceration and other penalties. We approach every case with an eye toward obtaining not-guilty verdicts at trial. We will begin by investigating all facets of your case, seeking to uncover flaws in the evidence against you. We also look for any evidence that can be used in your favor. Not all of our cases go to trial. However, the best plea agreements come from a position of strength and only after thorough analysis of the issues.

Client Testimonials

“Easy to work with – and hard to work against”
A veteran of many high profile federal and state cases, clients are often surprised by how approachable they find Damon. But having seen him at trial dozens of times over the years, I can attest to his powerful motions practice, ability to conduct relentless cross-examinations, and give moving openings/closings. With personal and professional qualities that make him easy to work with – and hard to work against – anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney would be in great hands with Damon Cheronis.

“A lawyer who truly cares and listens to his clients”
Damon, is a lawyer who truly cares and listens to his clients. He was totally prepared for the case so he was never surprised by the prosecutions evidence or arguments. He and was able to put the prosecutors in a defensive mode. He was by far the best attorney in the court room. I would highly recommend him to everyone.

“More than just and attorney!”
Very professional, always pays attention to detail and hungry to fight for his clients. The price I paid does come close to how hard he works. More than just and attorney! I definitely would recommend Damon to anyone I knew who needed a good attorney.
