Our Experienced Trial Lawyers Fight Allegations Of Violent Crimes

If you are accused of threatening violence, attacking someone or causing a person’s death, it is critical to have the right legal representation from the beginning. The law firm of Schwulst & Roseberry, P.C., provides proven criminal defense for those accused of assault, homicide or any crimes of violence.

We understand that a prison sentence is a very real possibility and that a conviction for a major felony will shadow you for the rest of your life. We will exhaust every defense and every opportunity to resolve your case, and we prepare from day one to fight for your freedom at trial.

We represent the accused in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, and surrounding counties of central Illinois. For a free half-hour initial consultation, call our office at 309-751-4101, or contact us online.

Safeguarding Your Rights And Strategizing Your Defense

While it is natural to want to cooperate with law enforcement officers and talk with them, too many defendants harm their own defense by giving statements or information to police, by consenting to warrantless searches or simply by waiving their rights to a jury trial. Discussing your case with a lawyer before you speak with law enforcement is highly recommended.

You need an experienced trial lawyer like John Schwulst or Todd Roseberry who can provide a true defense for you. They have prevailed at trial and know how to position you for the best possible outcome given the facts of your case. Our legal team will work to get your charges dismissed or downgraded and aggressively challenge the state’s case at every step of the process.
