    Our Team Approach to Criminal Defense

    Wigell & Associates is one of Chicago's most respected criminal defense firms. It has earned a reputation for thoughtful, aggressive legal representation in Chicago, Illinois and around the United States. Criminal defense firm, Wigell and Associates, Ltd., earned this reputation through hard work and dedication to providing its clients with reasoned professional advice based on 35 years of criminal defense practice in the state and Federal courts. Our goal is simply to protect all of our clients' rights including their constitutional rights, using every tool available in our arsenal of defense lawyer techniques and strategies.

    Clients seeking a Federal criminal defense attorney or an Illinois criminal defense attorney should carefully interview the attorneys that will be handling their case. As the senior attorney, Raymond G. Wigell is available to answer each client's and their family's questions and concerns. As a lawyer who focuses on Criminal law it is important to keep up with not only the law but also how the public perceives the legal process. Judges and Juries are people. They bring there life experience to the court room. An undeniable part of most Americans' life experience is what we are exposed to in the Media (TV, Internet, Books, Movies, etc). An important part of this for many Americans is the CSI effect. The CSI effect basically suggests that, like in the TV dramas, forensic tests are infallible. NOTHING could be further than from reality. Forensic tests are very suspect. Good criminal defense lawyers know a little about forensic tests. Great criminal defense lawyers know how to refute and limit the effect of forensic tests. We invest significant time and energy in knowing and refuting the results of government forensic testing. We are not afraid to challenge the government and will do so to protect your rights. A National Academy of Sciences Report issued in February 2009 strongly suggests that the following areas are suspect and need to be overhauled: Fingerprints, Toolmark and Firearm Identification, Handwriting, Hair, Fiber, Shoeprints and Tire Tracts, Bite Marks, Explosives Evidence and Fire Debris, Piant and Coatings, Bloodstain Pattern Analysis, Analysis of Controlled Substances, Biological Evidence, Digital and Multimedia Analysis. Wigell & Associates has successfully opposed government forensic test results. Contact us NOW to learn what we can do in your case.


    Lawyers Focused Exclusively on Your Criminal Defense

    To us, it's obvious why many lawyers, who only dabble in criminal defense work, cannot provide the personal attention and effective defense representation that the Law Offices of Raymond G. Wigell, Ltd. can deliver. Many are general practice attorneys who are trying to practice in numerous areas of law. At the Law Offices of Raymond G. Wigell, Ltd., our practice is focused exclusively on criminal defense, and complex civil litigation arising out of such matters. Period.

    From your first consultation and case evaluation, our attorneys and other team members are brainstorming methods to protect your rights in the short term, as well as potential strategies for trial. All of our cases are prepared for trial from the beginning. We put our innovative and powerful trial strategies to work from the start so that by the time the trial approaches, we have developed such momentum that relatively few cases actually go to trial. Consider the difference in our approach as compared to lawyers who only plea bargain.

    Our skilled defense attorney, investigators and paralegals will develop strategies to protect your rights at all stages of the criminal process, from initial charges, through negotiations or trial, to alternatives in sentencing.
