The recent explosion at the ChemTool plant in Rockton has released debris and likely toxic chemicals into the air. It is unknown what the long term affects of this will be on members of the surrounding community. If you have suffered injury, property damage, or lost wages, and live within a 10 mile radius of the plant, we would recommend speaking with an attorney to learn all of your options.

In Illinois, everyone charged with a criminal offense has a right to have their case set for a trail. At trial, the prosecution must prove every element of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. With such a high burden on the State, it would reason that every case that went through the criminal justice system would result in a trial. However, more than 90% of cases in Illinois result in some form of plea. If you are charged with a criminal offense, here are some of the things you should consider when deciding whether to take your case to trial. https://rockfordduilaw.com/should-i-set-my-case-for-trial/ROCKFORDDUILAW.COMSHOULD I SET MY CASE FOR TRIAL? - Law Office of Jonathan James, LLCEveryone in Illinois has a right to a trial by jury, but before setting your case for trial, there are several things that you should consider.

Our client was charged with driving under the combined influence of drugs and alcohol. Because there was an accident in the case our client was also charged with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. We took the case to trial and it was found that the arresting officer did not have the proper expertise to opine whether our client was under the influence of drugs, which is an essential element of the charge. As a result our client was found not guilty on both charges.If you're charged with a crime, call (779) 500-0167 for a free consultation
