LAW OFFICE OF WAYNE I. NOVAK

Defending your rights to the fullest.

Aiding and Abetting
Aiding and abetting falls under the theory that being a party to the crime is the same thing as committing the crime.  In other words just because a person does not commit the act in question does not mean that they cannot be charged with committing the offense.  That is of course as long as there is some element of accountability.  For a more in depth description of what is encompassed please see 720 ILCS 5/5 et al. 

Experience Matters
I have vast experience in the area of criminal defense.  Whether I am defending a misdemeanor violation or a serious felony offense, I will do everything possible to achieve the best possible result for my client.  The ultimate goal in every case I take on is to keep the charge of my client's permanent record if at all possible.  The sooner you contact me, the sooner I can preserve evidence that is routinely destroyed by most police departments within the first 30 days (booking room video, police dispatch recordings and any other audio or video recordings that may have been made routinely are destroyed after 30 days), which could ultimately impact whether you win or lose your case.  I will take a critical look at police conduct to make sure none of your constitutional rights were violated, and if they were, I will fight to get your case dismissed before a trial would even occur.
