Wheaton Criminal Defense Lawyer

DuPage County Defense Attorney

Attorney for Those Accused of a Crime in DuPage County and the Surrounding Areas

In the United States, someone who has been accused of a crime is innocent until proven guilty. The United States Constitution also affords criminal defendants certain rights. Among these rights is the right to consult with an attorney. My name is Stephen A. Brundage, and I am a criminal defense lawyer serving DuPage County, Kane County, Wheaton, and the neighboring cities. I understand how terrifying it is to be accused of a crime, and I am here to help you build a robust defense against your criminal charges.

Tenacious Legal Defense Against DUI Charges, Drug Possession, Assault, and Other Criminal Offenses

As a former police officer, I am exceedingly familiar with Illinois criminal law. I know what prosecutors need to secure a conviction and the steps they take when building a case against a defendant. I understand the strategies many law enforcement officers use to obtain evidence against a criminal suspect. This puts me in a very unique position in my work as a criminal defense lawyer. My experience enables me to identify flaws and inconsistencies in the prosecution's case against my client and use these vulnerabilities to secure an acquittal.

I have defended clients against a range of criminal accusations, including everything from traffic offenses to violent crimes. My team and I can help you build a solid defense strategy to combat criminal charges related to:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI) – As a former licensed breathalyzer operator and DUI enforcement instructor, I am very well versed in Illinois DUI cases. I know that chemical blood alcohol content (BAC) tests and field sobriety tests can be inaccurately administered and flawed. I also know that law enforcement officers must have probable cause to conduct a traffic stop and evaluate a driver for signs of intoxication. This helps me identify when the evidence against a DUI client is inadmissible in court.
  • Drug possession, manufacture, or sale – Laws regulating drug possession and consumption are changing rapidly in Illinois and throughout the country. However, it is still possible for a drug crime conviction to result in years or even decades in prison. If you were charged with possessing, manufacturing, or distributing prescription drugs, heroin, methamphetamines, or other illicit substances, contact us right away. You may be able to avoid jail time by participating in Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities or TASC probation, or a diversionary program.
  • Theft – If you were accused of burglary or theft, you are facing potentially life-changing consequences – including possible jail time. You need a skilled criminal defense lawyer on your side.
  • Juvenile offenses – A criminal conviction as a minor can affect the rest of a young person's life. If you or your child have been accused of underage drinking, drunk driving, drug crimes, theft, assault, or another criminal offense, do not make the mistake of taking these accusations lightly.
  • Violent crime – The state of Illinois punishes assault, sexual assault, battery, domestic violence, and other violent offenses harshly. A conviction for one of these offenses can dramatically influence your professional and personal reputation, reduce your housing opportunities, and even threaten your freedom.
  • Computer crimes – Many people overestimate the privacy they have while using a computer or smartphone. If you have been charged with a criminal offense related to child pornography, cyberstalking, online solicitation, or another computer crime, I can help you understand your legal options and take the course of action that is in your best interests.
  • Traffic violations - It may seem as if traffic violations are no big deal. However, traffic offenses still have the potential to incur significant penalties. Whether you were charged with reckless driving, driving on a suspended license, hit and run, or another traffic-related offense, or you simply received a traffic ticket, my team and I can help.
