Criminal Law Attorney Porter County

Criminal Law Attorney Porter County

When you are facing a criminal charge, you are facing an allegation that will change your life if you are convicted. No matter what type of charge you are facing, it is always in your best interest to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest. At Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock P.C., our Northwest Indiana criminal defense lawyers are here to help you defend your case.

Cases We Handle

Our team works with clients facing a variety of charges. Cases we handle include:

  • Domestic violence;
  • Marijuana possession;
  • Assault;
  • Disorderly conduct;
  • DUI;
  • Public intoxication;
  • Traffic charges;
  • Reckless driving;
  • Juvenile offenses;
  • Probation violations; and
  • Driving with a suspended license.
When you are facing any type of criminal charge, it is nearly always in your best interest to fight the charge with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Even when you can not have your charge dismissed, working with a criminal defense lawyer can often lead to less severe penalties than you would have faced otherwise.

Why Work with a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

As we mentioned above, working with a criminal defense lawyer can result in you having your charge lowered or your penalties reduced. Ideally, you can prove your innocence to the court and have your charges dropped, but sometimes this is not an option.

Your lawyer can help you determine when proving your innocence is likely and when it is in your best interest to resolve your case in another way, like accepting a plea bargain or enrolling in a diversion program.

If you fight your charge, your lawyer can also help you fight the charge. A few ways your lawyer can do this include:

  • Determining whether any of the prosecution’s evidence is irrelevant or was collected in violation of your constitutional rights;
  • Determine whether your constitutional rights were violated in any way and use this information to potentially have evidence or even the entire case dismissed; and
  • Procure and use available evidence to demonstrate your innocence.

Penalties You are Facing

The penalties you face for a criminal charge depend on a variety of factors, including your previous criminal record, the nature of the charge, and the presence of any aggravating or mitigating factors. Penalties you could be facing include:

  • Incarceration;
  • Fines;
  • Probation;
  • Driver’s license suspension;
  • Community service;
  • Professional license suspension; and
  • Restitution.

Additionally, you could be facing the loss of certain civil rights, like the right to own a firearm. Our team is committed to protecting all of your rights through a solid defense strategy.
