With almost two decades of criminal defense experience, attorney Steve Giacoletto can handle many criminal law matters without even requiring you to appear in the courtroom. Though some cases will require you to make an appearance, our goal is to avoid having you make multiple court appearances. This often occurs for individuals facing traffic offenses. Why take a day off work and spend it standing around the courthouse, only to be told that your case was moved to another date?
When you work with the Giacoletto Law Office, you will work with the attorney you hired from start to finish and get the personal attention you deserve. We understand how these charges affect every aspect of our clients' lives, and we will be there to help you find solutions if you face any of the following charges in Illinois state court:
- Traffic offenses
- Drug crimes
- Weapons offenses
- Theft crimes
- Juvenile crimes
- Aggravated battery
- Driving without insurance
- Reckless driving
- Domestic battery
- Retail theft
- Assault and battery
If you have been convicted of a crime, we may be able to help you get a fresh start by obtaining an expungement and exploring your other record sealing options.
What to Expect From Your Criminal Defense
When building your criminal defense, we will look at every aspect of the alleged crime and your prior criminal history. Listening to your story and conducting a thorough investigation, we will prepare your case for court. While we will be ready for a trial, we will remain open to all negotiation opportunities, because defense attorneys often get better settlement options than individuals who represent themselves.
Located between the Madison County Courthouse and the St. Clair County Courthouse, we are prepared to handle cases for the accused across southwestern Illinois. Open during weekly business hours, we offer evening, weekend and off-site appointments as well. Contact us today for a free phone consultation.
