Criminal Defense

If you have been arrested and accused of a crime, there is a lot at stake. A good criminal defense lawyer often means the difference between freedom and prison time. All lawyers are not created equal. If you hire the wrong lawyer, the consequences can be extreme.

Jackowiak Law Offices has lawyers with extensive experience in defending criminal cases, and a history of results. Lawrence (“Larry”) Jackowiak is best known for his work in civil rights and injury cases, but when Jackowiak Law Offices first opened in 1996, the firm handled mostly criminal cases. Right from the start, Larry fought hard in all of his cases. For example, in his very first jury trial, Larry’s client was charged with armed robbery. One piece of evidence was a signed, handwritten confession the client made after he was arrested. The jury made a finding of not guilty.

All of our attorneys are relentless, tireless, and energetic in defending criminal cases. We investigate all cases early and thoroughly. Each case undergoes rigorous forensic analysis, and every possible legal motion is carefully considered and fought. Every move, big and little, is factored into the grand trial strategy. In court, our attorneys speak eloquently, candidly, and with passion. Our attorneys believe it is an honor to fight for freedom, and have won many cases that the prosecution thought there was no chance of losing.

Federal Criminal Defense

Federal crimes are usually the most serious for which a person may face criminal charges. In addition, the manner in which federal crimes are investigated, prosecuted and penalized is extremely harsh. Federal criminal cases often have extremely harsh minimum penalties that must be imposed under federal sentencing guidelines. To make matters even worse, federal agencies are typically better funded and have more manpower to dedicate to their investigations, and federal prosecutors often have more experience and resources to prosecute defendants in federal court. To counteract the aggressive investigation and prosecution that you will face for a federal crime, you need highly experienced criminal defense attorneys on your side. Our lawyers are here to help you fight for your rights and liberties.
