Assault & Murder
In more than 17 years of practice as a criminal defense attorney, DJ Tegeler has defended hundreds of people accused of violent crimes. He understands the grave and serious nature of such charges. At his firm, the Law Office of Donald M. Tegeler, Jr., we are committed to providing the strongest defense possible in these cases.
Our firm defends clients accused of all types of violent crimes, including:
Over the course of his career, DJ Tegeler has defended clients in more than 20 homicide cases, including first degree murder charges, as well as countless other violent crime cases. Though the potential penalty may be higher in some cases than in others, we defend every case as aggressively as possible. Whether it involves an allegation of assault and battery, capital murder, or aggravated battery, we put the same intensity into the defense effort.
We know that for you, the criminal charge you face is your greatest concern and we act accordingly.
DJ Tegeler is one of a select group of lawyers admitted to the Capital Litigation Bar in Illinois. In addition to specialized training and a demonstration of legal abilities in this regard, admission to this Bar requires endorsement by judges and prosecuting attorneys.
In defending against violent crime charges, no one approach works in every situation. If we go to work for you, we will carefully review all the facts and develop a unique legal strategy to meet the needs of your case, the strategy that we think will obtain the best results for you. If needed, we can call upon highly skilled private investigators who can uncover new evidence or disprove or undermine the prosecution's allegations. Even disproving a single element of the case, if it is important to the prosecution, may be enough to obtain a dismissal or acquittal of the charge.
Throughout the entire process, we keep the client informed of the legal options available through negotiated plea arrangements or alternative sentencing programs.
