Defending Your Rights, No Matter What
Regardless of what others may tell you, criminal defendants have many rights which must not be infringed upon at any point during their arrest or trial. These rights include: the right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure; the right to be free from unlawful interrogations; the right to be to remain silent during police questioning; the right to a speedy trial; the right to cross-examine any state witness at trial, including police officers; the right to the presumption of innocence; the right to a fair trial by judge or jury; and the right to require the state to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
These rights give you powerful tools that can be effectively used in your defense. However, these tools are not very useful if you don’t actually use them. Crystal Lake criminal defense attorney Timothy Brown makes full use of these powerful tools and obtains excellent results for his clients.

How We Get Results
1. Exclusion of Evidence
The prosecution may not use evidence against you that was obtained unlawfully. Evidence is obtained unlawfully, for example, if the police conduct a search or seizure that is unreasonable under the 4th Amendment. Under the Exclusionary Rule, the court will suppress evidence that was illegally obtained. This means that the court will prohibit the prosecution from using certain evidence against you at trial if the court determines that the police, in obtaining the evidence, violated your constitutional rights.
As your Criminal Defense Attorney, Timothy Brown will carefully review your case to determine whether any incriminating evidence can be suppressed. If there is a basis to suppress any evidence, we will conduct a suppression hearing and vigorously seek to have the evidence excluded.
2. Effective Plea Bargaining
As your Criminal Defense Attorney, Timothy Brown will attempt to negotiate a favorable plea agreement on your behalf. In an effort to negotiate the best possible plea agreement, Attorney Timothy Brown will use any weakness with the state’s case, including suppression issues, evidentiary issues, or viable defenses, as leverage to negotiate a favorable plea agreement. This process often yields excellent results.
If your case cannot be resolved by dismissal or plea agreement, you will need to exercise your right to trial. As your Criminal Defense Attorney, Timothy Brown will aggressively fight to obtain an acquittal, bringing to bear his considerable knowledge, skill, and experience in the courtroom.
