At the Law Offices of Robert W. Brown, Jr. P.C., we recognize that whether you are arrested for a minor traffic violation, a DUI, or other more serious misdemeanor or felony offenses, the experience can dramatically impact your life, your family and your job, both financially and emotionally. Our practice is devoted to representing and protecting the rights of those who have been arrested.

Involvement in the criminal justice system can be a stressful and intimidating experience. The possibility of going to jail, paying a large fine, and having a criminal record for the rest of your life demands that you choose an experienced, skillful attorney to represent you. While criminal law in Illinois may be uniform throughout the state, missing the subtle differences between Cook, DuPage, McHenry and Lake County courts may be devastating for the uninformed and under-represented client.

Protect your rights and freedom with a former prosecutor who knows the system.

Mr. Brown brings more than twenty-five years of experience to the table, first as an Assistant State’s Attorney, Felony Trial Division of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and then as Deputy Chief of the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office in Waukegan. During his tenure as a prosecutor, his extensive trial experience included handling the trials of many murder, sexual assault, robbery, possession and delivery of controlled substances, reckless homicide cases, and numerous other criminal matters. He supervised Assistant State’s Attorneys assigned to the criminal division of that office, advised police departments on a countywide basis, presented matters before the Lake County Grand Jury, prosecuted cases presented by federal law enforcement agencies, and was responsible for the creation of the present day Felony Review Division.

As a defense attorney, Mr. Brown has successfully tried to verdict or negotiated thousands of similar criminal, juvenile and traffic cases, as well as successfully arguing cases in the Second Appellate District and before the Illinois Supreme Court. Wouldn ’t you rather be represented by a lawyer who has served as both prosecutor and defense attorney? Knowing how the system works can be crucial to your defense.
