Chicago and Dallas/Ft. Worth Criminal Defense Lawyers

If you have been accused of a crime, the first thing you should do is hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. Facing a criminal conviction is an overwhelming and stressful experience. Any type of criminal conviction can have a significant, long-lasting effect on your future. Therefore, it is important to retain the services of a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. At Toro Law Office, we have years of experience representing clients accused of crimes throughout Illinois and Texas. It is our goal to protect your rights and come up with a defense strategy for clients charged with all felonies and misdemeanors.

There are many different types of crimes, and most can be divided into four different categories: personal crimes, property crimes, inchoate crimes, and statutory crimes.

  • Personal Crimes - These are crimes committed against another person, resulting in physical or mental harm. Examples include assault, battery, false imprisonment, kidnapping, homicide, and rape.
  • Property Crimes - These are crimes against property and do not always involve harm to another person. They are an interference with another person’s right to enjoy or safely use their own property. Examples of property crimes include larceny and theft, robbery, burglary, arson, embezzlement, forgery, false pretenses, and receipt of stolen goods.
  • Inchoate Crimes - Inchoate, or incomplete crimes, are those that were started, but never completed. To be charged with an inchoate crime, the victim must be able to prove that the defendant took steps to complete the crime, which goes beyond simply intending to commit a crime. Examples include attempted robbery, solicitation, and conspiracy.
  • Statutory Crimes - When a state or federal statute was violated, the person responsible may be charged with a statutory crime. Examples of statutory crimes include DUI/DWI and selling alcohol to a minor.
