Illinois DUI Arrest Representation for Misdemeanors and Felonies

The criminal defense lawyers of Camic Johnson handle a wide range of misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

Drunk driving

A DUI conviction can change your life overnight. You may lose your driver’s license or be forced to spend a year or more in jail. To defend your rights and your freedom, you need skilled legal defense.

Drug charges

With the extremely harsh penalties for drug crimes, you need a lawyer who can do more than plea bargain for you. Our lawyers have obtained acquittals in difficult state and federal cases.


Our lawyers have been successful in getting murder charges reduced and having our clients exonerated in cases ranging from reckless homicide to first-degree murder.

Domestic violence

If you are accused of domestic violence, your career and your reputation may be on the line. Don’t assume the charges will go away without an aggressive defense.

Internet crimes

Crimes such as identity theft, terrorism threats, solicitation of a minor, and child pornography can carry extremely severe penalties. If you are convicted of an Internet sex crime, you will be required to register yourself as a sexual offender with local authorities for a minimum of 10 years following your release from prison.

White collar crimes

The first sign you are suspected of a white collar crime, such as fraud, could be a call from law enforcement asking you to come in for questioning. You need legal representation before you answer questions.


If you have been wrongly convicted, our appellate and post-conviction practice can assist you in an appeal. The firm may be able to get your record expunged or sealed.
