Drug Possession

Probation Violations
If you have been granted probation in lieu of your prison sentence, but have since been accused of violating the terms of your probation, you need an attorney right away.  Our firm can defend you from the false accusations and prevent you from being sent back to prison to serve the remainder of your term.

Assault & Battery
Assault occurs when a person places another individual in fear of bodily harm.  Battery occurs when such bodily harm is actually inflicted on another person.  These offenses are misdemeanors unless aggravated, in which case they are felonies.

Sex Crimes
Sex offenses range from indecent exposure and molestation to rape and child pornography.  These crimes have severe penalties under Illinois state law, so be sure to hire a capable defense attorney if you have been charged with a sex crime.

Theft Crimes
Some theft crimes are relatively minor, such as retail theft of property worth less that $300.  Crimes such as burglary or robbery, however, are serious felonies.  Get aggressive defnese immediately to fight your charges and prevent a lengthy sentence and high fines.

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes are those offenses involving serious bodily harm or death.  Common cases include domestic violence, arson, and murder.  Attorney Steeves has handled thousands of violent criminal cases including murder charges.

Weapons
Weapon offenses can be anything from a misdemeanor such as carrying a deadly weapon on one's person, to a felony such as unlawful discharge of a firearm.  Our team understands Illinois weapons laws and can provide a skilled and aggressive defense against your charges.
Juvenile Crimes
Although underage persons are treated with more leniency in the criminal courts, there is still a chance that they could be tried as adults.  If your child has been arrested, speak with a lawyer to learn what penalties he or she could be facing and how a criminal defense attorney can fight their charges.

Child Pornography

One of the most serious sex crime charges a person can face is that of child pornography.  Whether you have been accused of owning, producing, buying, or selling child pornography, my firm can fight to prove your charges false and protect you from harsh penalties.
