Joliet Robbery Defense Lawyer

Theft offenses carry a weighty social stigma. A conviction for any theft-related offense can detrimentally affect your employment opportunities, your ability to obtain a school loan and your ability to obtain certain licenses for the rest of your life.

Will County, Illinois, Theft Defense Attorney

Don’t try to fight a theft charge on your own. Instead, contact Douglas G. DeBoer, a robbery defense attorney in Joliet. I offer free initial consultations, so you have nothing to lose by reaching out.

My practice is devoted entirely to criminal defense. I am passionate about standing up for the rights and liberties of those accused of crimes. I will use all available legal tools to protect your rights and defend your freedoms.

A Former Prosecutor Now Dedicated To Defense

In court, your opponent is a prosecutor whose goal is to take away your property, liberty and reputation. As a former prosecutor with 30 years of criminal law experience, I evaluate each case the same way as your opponent. My years of experience from both sides of the courtroom work to my clients’ advantage every time we enter the courtroom.

With me on your side, you can trust that your case will receive individualized treatment of the highest caliber. I work directly with clients to help them obtain favorable results. Your case will never be handled by a paralegal or associate. Additionally, you can contact me directly with questions or concerns; I promptly return phone calls within 24 hours.

Tackling Theft Charges

I have experience representing clients in a wide array of property crime charges, including:

Credit card theft

Check fraud

Shoplifting (retail theft)



Forgery & Identity Theft

Car theft

I also represent juveniles charged with all types of theft offenses, including “car hopping” or stealing from parked vehicles.

Many types of theft offenses are felonies. You could face a lengthy prison sentence if convicted. Given the magnitude of what is at stake — your liberty, reputation and future — it is important to turn to an experienced attorney for guidance.
