Fighting For Your Rights
Criminal convictions often result in very negative penalties that can severely impact a person’s life forever. In addition to hefty fines, revocation of certain privileges and jail time, criminal convictions often result in damage to future education, career and social opportunities.
We are dedicated to advocating for your rights at Nicholas W. Karas & Associates, LLC. Located in Palos Heights, Illinois, we represent individuals suspected and charged with crimes throughout Cook County.
Personal Service From A Former Prosecutor
Because the penalties can affect a person’s life forever, if you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with a crime, it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting on your behalf from the very beginning. Let us work for you. We will personally handle your case all the way through.
Attorney Nicholas Karas was a former prosecutor in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office for more than 10 years before starting his own criminal defense practice. He understands the complexities of the criminal justice system, how prosecutors and judges will view your case, and what options are available when defending your case.
