Mitchell D. Kreiter  & Associates defend persons accused of criminal offenses in both state and federal court, at trial and on appeal.

The mark of a good lawyer is to be able to win what appears to be an absolutely losing case, and Mitchell D. Kreiter & Associates has pulled the rabbit out of the hat on numerous occasions.  We are serious lawyers, and we deal with serious cases.  We are master strategists who can evaluate a situation or even a question from every angle imaginable.

We do not promise our clients the world simply because that is what they want to hear.  We do not take the money and tell our clients not to worry. We are upfront and honest at all times. We consult with our clients so they understand our strategy and are part of the decision making process. We acknowledge that in some cases, negotiating a plea bargain may be a better strategy than going to trial. In these situations, because of our experience and stellar reputation, we are able to obtain the best possible deal.

While we are based in Chicago, we travel to wherever there is a need for our services. We have represented clients in most of the Illinois collar counties and in numerous other states. We have defended thousand of individuals charged in the most serious offenses. We have been involved in the defense of more than one hundred murder cases.  We have represented clients charged in drug cases (our cases have ranged from two thousand kilos of cocaine in the Eastern District of New York to one hundred thousand pounds of marijuana in the Southern District of Texas), sex crimes, kidnapping, burglary, robbery, simple and aggravated car-jacking, simple and aggravated battery, firearm cases, domestic violence cases, DUI, reckless homicide, white collar crimes—i.e., mortgage fraud, mail fraud, art fraud, bank fraud, and bid rigging—and just about every crime that is contained in the criminal code.  We have also been involved and had great success in the appellate courts in multiple states as well.  Here is a list of some of the charges we handle:

Aiding and Abetting
Auto Theft
Criminal Attempt
Disorderly Conduct
Domestic Violence
Drug Possession
Drug Trafficking
Employee Theft
Gun Crimes
Hit and Run
Narcotics Charges
Parole Violations

In these days of economic hardship we understand that legal fees are not part of the normal family budget; however, we are experienced, well-known, and highly respected lawyers and, accordingly, are not the most inexpensive lawyers available.  But, as the old adage goes–in life, you get what you pay for.

The representation of clients in criminal cases boils down to a search for truth and justice.  Truth is fleeting and difficult to capture and justice, as promised by our “Founding Fathers”, is in many instances, not found in our criminal justice system.  We at Mitchell D. Kreiter & Associates will protect each and every one of your constitutional rights and when our representation of you is at an end, the taste left in your mouth will be sweet as you will know that you have been represented by lawyers who have fought for you with their minds as well as their hearts.  There is no charge to come to our office to consult with us to determine if our lawyer/client relationship is in your best interests, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
