Knowing The Stakes In A Criminal Defense Case
Your reputation. Your career. Your family. These were not handed to you. You have worked hard to build a life you can be proud of. Whether you have been accused, you are being investigated or charges have been filed, it is important to take action to protect what matters most.
At Cheronis, Parente & Levitt LLC in Chicago, our goal is to limit your exposure to criminal penalties and the collateral consequences that come with having a criminal record. We will strive to achieve the best possible outcome in your case, whether that is the dismissal of charges, a “not guilty” verdict or a plea agreement that avoids a felony conviction.

What To Do If
We Are Ready To Fight For You In Court
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 cases go to trial, but we have found that the best plea agreements come from a position of strength and only after thorough analysis of the issues.
We Offer A Proven Defense Against State And Federal Charges
We have defended people throughout the country facing criminal charges in state and federal courts. Our record of success is well-known in the Chicagoland legal community and includes acquittals in first-degree murder cases and other serious cases.
Our lawyers defend against a full spectrum of felony and misdemeanor offenses, including drug crimes and white collar crimes such as fraud and embezzlement. We skillfully handle all phases of the criminal process from investigation to trial, and we encourage early intervention whenever possible. However, we are able to step in at any point in your criminal defense case.
“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.

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.
