Illinois Criminal Defense Lawyers Defending Those Accused of Murder In Lombard, Wheaton, Addison, Naperville and all of DuPage County
There was a time when cases involving murder and the death penalty could be handled by any attorney in Illinois. Time after time, these situations were mishandled by unqualified lawyers. The state decided that too much was on the line for this to keep happening. Now, only lawyers who are members of the capital litigation bar are certified to take on these cases. Mike Norris has this certification; he has been certified by the Illinois Supreme Court as a member of the capital litigation bar. At the law offices of Michael T. Norris, Ltd. and John W. Callahan, Ltd., you will find a team of attorneys ready to take on these serious cases.

A Moment of Truth in a Complex Court Case
One of the most complex cases we have taken on was so noteworthy that it was turned into a television movie. Our client was a minor who confessed to the murder of a young girl. We discovered that the police had used a very unusual means to get the confession: hypnosis. By bringing in experts on this unique topic, we were able to demonstrate that the method was unreliable. Our client was able to walk away from these charges.*
