Alvarez Law Office’s Aggressive Criminal Attorneys Fight Relentlessly for Our Client’s Freedom



Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Indiana and Illinois

A criminal defense attorney, both private and appointed by the court system, has an important job. They investigate the case that has been brought against their clients, research the facts surrounding the case, and try to negotiate an acceptable deal with the prosecutors. Specific deals may be made, such as reduced sentences or charges, so that their clients can get back to their everyday life as quickly as possible.

While investigating your case, your attorney may also examine any witnesses, analyze the case brought against you, and help formulate a plea deal. They will assess the potential that a particular sentence may have and what the likelihood is for that sentence happening. Your attorney will also advise what the consequences of your conviction may be.

Alvarez Law provides a personalized approach to each case we’re presented with to provide you with the best representation possible. Reach out to us today if you’ve been charged with a criminal offense. We’ll defend you and work hard to get you the best outcome possible.

Our Clients Talk

I cannot stress how wonderful Alvarez Law has been. I contacted Steve originally and instantly felt comfortable and understood. Andy Kyres was the one that ended up taking my case and he was nothing short of amazing. He was pleasant to communicate with, and I am still amazed at what he was able to accomplish for me legally.

The whole team truly went above and beyond for me. I will be forever greatful, deciding to ‘go with Alvarez’ has been life changing! And Theresa (Mr. Kyres’s paralegal) was so sweet! Thank you to the whole Alvarez law team!
