Peoria Felony Defense Lawyer

Lawyer Defending Clients Against Felony Charges in Chicago and Throughout Illinois

When you are charged with a crime, you are immediately facing an uphill battle, including the potential for hefty fines and jail time. Police officers and prosecutors will do everything they can to achieve a conviction, so it is incredibly important to secure the services of a knowledgeable, experienced criminal defense attorney. A dedicated advocate will be able to fight unjust charges, uncover any violations of laws or procedure by law enforcement, discover weaknesses in the prosecution's case, and help you achieve the best results in your case.

Defending Against Serious Criminal Charges

Attorney Stephen M. Komie has over 40 years of experience litigating serious criminal cases, and he brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding of how to fight a wide variety of criminal charges. Mr. Komie is always ready to ask the right questions in each type of case, including:

  • Assault and Battery - Were there any conflicts between witness testimonies and police reports? Was the accused acting in self-defense, defense of others, or defense of property?
  • Domestic Violence - Are there any inconsistencies in the accuser's testimony or police reports? Were alleged injuries faked or falsified? Does the accuser have a history of mental illness or substance abuse?
  • Sex Offenses - Did the alleged sex act actually occur? Has the accuser changed their story? Can the accused show that consent was given?
  • Stalking or Harassment - Did the accuser invite contact from the accused? Does the accuser have an ulterior motive for bringing charges?
  • Weapons Charges - Did the weapon actually belong to the accused? Did officers have probable cause to make an arrest? Was the weapon found in an illegal search? Can the prosecution show that the weapon was immediately accessible?
  • Theft or Burglary - Is the accused the actual owner of the property which was allegedly stolen? Did the accused pay for the allegedly stolen property or services? Does the accused have an alibi for when the alleged burglary took place?
  • Arson - Were investigators able to positively determine the cause of a fire? Can the prosecution demonstrate beyond the shadow of a doubt that the accused started the fire, or can they only rule out possible accidental causes of the fire?
  • Fraud or Embezzlement - Was the alleged fraud due to an error made by a financial institution? Are there any documents which can disprove the charges?
  • Money Laundering - Can the prosecutor prove that the money in question was gained as proceeds from a crime? Was the accused aware of the source of the money or its intended purpose?
