In some cases, potential penalties for a conviction can be much worse than jail time and fines. A permanent criminal record can severely impact you for the rest of your life, as it shows up on background checks. This can restrict you from finding employment, housing, or securing loans.

We understand how severe these repercussions can be, which is why we do our best to achieve the most favorable outcome. There are various defense strategies that we may employ on your behalf. Each crime is different and should be confronted by a DuPage County criminal defense attorney.

It is essential that you get the experienced representation available at Scott W. Sheen & Associates if you have been arrested for a criminal charge. Each case we take on is given the full attention that it deserves.
