Joliet Attorney

Pioneer Building - Joliet, ILThe prosecutor whom you will be facing in court has one goal: He or she wants to take away your property, your freedom and your future. The awesome power of the government is being directed against you. Your constitutional rights may prevent the prosecutor from getting what he or she wants. You need an experienced lawyer who can put those constitutional protections to work for you.

Fighting For Your Future

I am Douglas G. DeBoer, a criminal defense lawyer with more than 25 years of experience. I am passionate about criminal defense. I understand all the ramifications that stem from criminal charges, and I understand the personal constitutional protections you have under our laws. I will use every available avenue of legal protection to your advantage in court.

A Former Prosecutor Dedicated To Criminal Defense

Before founding my own practice, I served as a prosecutor for 13 years in the largest law office in Will County, gaining extensive trial experience and honing critical legal skills in cases as simple as traffic violations to those as serious as death-penalty murder. I have practiced criminal law in the Joliet area for my entire career. As a result, I am very familiar with the local courts, prosecutors and legal community.

My experience as a former prosecutor works to my clients’ advantage. I understand how the prosecutor, judge and jury will view your case. I know how to develop effective strategies for building a strong defense.

I handle all types of criminal charges, from DUI and DWI defense to homicide and sex crimes. I am an experienced trial attorney as well as a skilled negotiator. Whether your case can be resolved through trial, plea bargaining, pretrial dismissal or other means, I will explore every possible avenue to help you obtain a positive outcome.

My Commitment To You

As a solo practitioner, I provide some advantages you may not find at a larger law firm. First of all, I am committed to building personal relationships with each client. You will quickly realize that I genuinely care about the outcome of your case. I work closely with each client to gain a complete picture of who he or she is, including his or her background, family, values and goals. I believe in each one of my clients, and you can rely on me to fight for your future, too.

I am personally involved in every detail of every case.

While I may hire an investigator or an outside expert in some cases, I am the one who guides the defense effort from start to finish. Additionally, you can feel comfortable turning to me with any questions or concerns. I promptly return client phone calls within 24 hours.

I believe that, when your liberties are at stake, you deserve a forthright assessment of your options. I provide clients with a thorough explanation of what to expect each step of the way. When their cases have concluded, clients often tell me they appreciated the realistic picture I painted at the outset.
