A Former Prosecutor Now Dedicated To Defense

I am Douglas G. DeBoer, a criminal defense lawyer in Joliet, Illinois. I offer experienced legal representation for clients facing all types of criminal charges. As a lifelong resident of the Joliet area, I am well-acquainted with the local courts and legal community. I am dedicated to fighting for your rights, liberties and future.

When you turn to me for legal guidance, you will be gaining the advantage of  30 years of experience in criminal law. Before founding my own law practice over a decade ago, I served as a prosecutor in Joliet, rising to the position of First Assistant State’s Attorney. I handled a high volume of trials and plea negotiations in all types of criminal cases, from DUIs and drug charges to homicide and sex offenses. My experience works to my clients’ advantage every time we walk into the courtroom.

I am a life long resident of the area. I live in Plainfield with my wife Tina and our four children. We attend Crossroads Community Church in Naperville.


Regardless of your legal issue, give me a call or send me an email. I concentrate only in criminal defense law.

If you were hurt in an accident or received bad medical care, contact me. If you lost your license and need a hearing for reinstatement, let me know. If you have a question about estate planning or a house closing, I can help.

The legal profession has a bad reputation because many lawyers are too busy to communicate with their clients. My network of professionals share my view that the client comes first. If you need help with any legal issue, I’m happy to help you find the right lawyer for the job.
